I was listening to the radio this morning as they talked about Tiger Woods scandal. And yes, it IS a scandal.
The co-hosts were discussing whether or not they were surprised to find out that Tiger had cheated on his wife:
Mr. Radio Man said (I'm paraphrasing) "Well if you had asked me a week ago, I would've been shocked, but now this has become they new norm for Tiger. He's a cheater." Ms. Radio Woman said "I agree, c'mon he's a professional athlete...we shouldn't be shocked that he's not faithful to his wife."
Are they for real? Does nobody remember their marriage vows? The promise to be faithful...in good times and bad...for better or for worse. Who cares if he is a professional athlete or a truck driver, he is still a MARRIED man!
She continued: "However I am shocked that he was so sloppy about the whole thing. I mean, if you're gonna cheat on your wife, you at least pick women who don't work the club scene, aren't in it for the money, and can keep a secret. And don't call them and text them from your cell phone."
What?!?! SO now we're going to say that he picked the wrong women to have affairs. How about that is was wrong that he picked ANY woman at all to have an affair?
Mr. Radio Man added, "I watch golf all the time, and I'm not surprised their marriage didn't last. Elin was almost never at his golf tournaments and she just seemed chilly."
Seriously, people? Instead of being SHOCKED that any man would cheat on his wife, we are justifying this particular man's behavior by blaming his wife's absenteeism at events? How about the fact that she was at home with their two small children????
And as for Tiger saying that he wants to keep this matter private - how about keeping your privates private. What a disappointment.
