So what?

So maybe Tiger Woods had a big fight with his wife, got pissed off and went tearing off in the car and then had an accident. No alcohol was involved. Nobody got hurt but Tiger. So what?

Good grief, give it a rest already. Police investigations. If he didn't fail an alcohol test, end of conversation. STFU and move on.
By the way, the only thing you can really prove at all here is whether drugs or alcohol were involved. Again, if not, that's the end of this affair.

What I want to know is if his next move will be to shave his head. Like Britney.

You have to admit the whole story is pretty fishy....The guy rips out of his driveway at 2:30am and does not make it more than a few feet before ramming a tree hard enough to be knocked unconscious then he refuses to speak to the police for 3 days now. All Mr Superstar needed to do was act like anyone of us would have and give the police a statement then move on. Woods decided to pull the celebrity card and not cooperate.

What if some of his injuries were because his wife hit him?

America's favourite past-time has always been to build up celebrities, just to drag them down at the first opportunity. Can't even blame the media, it's the rest of us that follow that crap.

If these celebrities would simply act and do what is expected of every other citizen then there would not be these issues. You can't blame America.....blame the egotistical celeb's who feel they are above our laws and customes.

What if the story is true that she went after him with a club because of infidelity. Now there's something interesting and could make her a hero to women everywhere.

I think I read on a bathroom wall somewhere that no matter how hot a woman is, sooner or later, the guy she's with gets tired of her crap.

In this case, I think there may be a reversal, but I don't think there's any such creature as a former model that's NOT a high maintenance individual.

If Tiger is fooling around, he's a moron.

No, I just have this mind that catches quirky things.

There's this line someone wrote and another replied to in the Mens' room restaurant at the midtown Cornerstone restaurant in Sacramento...

"How can you respect a world that is committing suicide?"

"Can you not write on the ---- ooops!"

I'm confused by the "official" story. Is it that a skinny supermodel dragged/lifted Woods out of the window of his vehicle? I'd like to see that re-enacted.

Yeah I assume his wife was clubbing him w/ the same club she smashed out the window on his rig to 'rescue' him.

Good thing he isn't a pro skeet-shooter!

Agree, leave the guy alone. I understand celebrity status puts one in the limelight but being human is part of life. The media should go away and try to find more Paris Hilton sex tapes.

And, I understand, has a twin sister. Imagine the possibilities.
