It's none of our business

Am I the only person out here who believes that Tiger Woods doesn't owe anyone a public apology? Since when did his fame make him accountable to me, to his fans, or to the rest of the world? This is about his personal life; HIS marriage, HIS family, and how it affects them. It doesn't affect me in the least. I'm not a golfer or a fan of golf but even if I was, it's none of my business. Why do we seem to have such a need to make gods out of our celebrities and then when they prove that they are only too human, we crucify them?

Perhaps the public owes Tiger Woods an apology for putting him on a pedistal that he never asked to be put on in the first place, robbing him of his humanity and of his right to make mistakes. Perhaps we all need to examine ourselves and ask if we were in the same position, with the same pressures and temptations, would we do any differently?

  1. I'm with you. He owes nothing to me. I have done many things that I hope will never appear in the National Sludge. Just play golf Tiger.
