Listen: Tiger Woods, Tiger And Facebook discussed on CBS Sports Radio
"We head towards the end of the show. Tiger meant a lot to me. I loved watching Tiger Woods today. I thought it was absolutely remarkable. Although I guess now it was yesterday as we're past midnight both on the east coast and central time zone. Tiger sold news. Not he. It was easy to root root for for me. And I think for most, but there's always haters out there, and I would just caution. If you're rooting against tiger for golf reasons. Okay. Cool. You've got a favorite golfer. That's not tiger. It's fine to bet that wasn't tiger. Okay. That's fine. But if you're not rooting for tiger because of personal stuff, whether it be the addiction, whether it be the infidelity, whatever the case may be. Because you might be disappointed to learn about your favorite athlete, your favorite team, your favorite coach, your favorite musician, your favorite actor. And that's not to say that. They there aren't perfect people and stuff like that. Although there aren't but to human right? But there's just obviously tiger had a bigger fall from grace than most than he had more skeletons in his closet than most. But he also was more popular powerful and famous than most. So he had further to fall. And I just think that if you actually zoom out sometimes and think about the trappings of celebrity power fame wealth, and you just think of the sheer number of people in the last, I don't know call it. Fifteen years. Let's say in the Facebook generation Facebook TMZ, Twitter Instagram that have been caught up in some form of unsavory something. It goes a little bit further. I think towards explaining the condition in which these celebrities who get idolize everything thrown at their feet every opportunity in the world to stumble an air. It's kind of refreshing important. I think to remember that they're human. So a lot of the knocks on tiger felt very personal that I was seeing on social media"
