I started reposting some of my blogs I did in college and as recently as a year ago on my CBSsports.com blog and people love it. I must admit I got the idea watching the news one night where they do "One year ago today" in a segment. So one year ago today Tiger Woods was facing the backlash that currently haunts him. A lot has changed though, he's back playing golf which is good but dude's on a losing streak that I don't know if he can get out of.
In his most recent tournament he actually came from ahead to lose, very unTiger like. The Miami Heat thinks that was a choke job and yeah I am all over the Heat in my current blog on the CBS website. Never before have I seen a team be so great in the first three quarters and then turn into the Washington Generals in the fourth.
However, this report is about how one year ago Tiger had another group on his case named PETA. Read what PETA wanted to do with Tiger Woods from my original blog from March 5, 2010.-----
Just when the Tiger Woods scandal starts to quite down and fade away someone or something always seems to drag it back into the headlines. Guess it's PETA's turn this time. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are searching for an advertiser for a new billboard featuring Tiger Woods and his recent troubles off the golf course. The billboard will say, "Too much sex can be a bad thing ... for little tigers too. Help keep your cats (and dogs) out of trouble: Always spay or neuter!" Oh and there's a huge picture of Tiger standing next to that statement.
Virginia Fort who's a campaigner for the project said, "It's a fun, tongue-in-cheek approach. We hope these billboard companies will understand." When asked about Tiger not endorsing the ad Fort said, "We're sure Tiger will appreciate our attempt — from a story that's distracted the world and followed Tiger — to turn it into something positive for little tigers."
Really? Tiger's not going to endorse that advertisement? I wonder why. Of course he doesn't want any part of this, the dude doesn't want his name to appear next to the word "sex" no matter what it is in reference to. This is awesome oh and sure Virginia, he's going to appreciate your attempt about as much as he appreciates the media following his wife and kids.
PETA is awesome, I can always count on them to go way too far with their love of animals and blow thing way out of proportion. Look, you love animals and you're all about animal rights, great that is very admirable, but please explain to me what this has to do with Tiger Woods and his skanks errrr I mean waitresses? This is just like PETA isn't it, taking a good cause and using it for the wrong reasons. Remember this is the same PETA who sent a get well soon and by the way you deserved it message to Roy Horn after he was attacked on stage during a performance by Montecore the tiger.
I say leave Tiger the golfer alone and let him do right by his family and get back on the golf course because despite what my friend Rachel believes, golf and the PGA are suffering without the dude and if you don't believe me just ask someone who won the Accenture Match Play Championship. If you knew it was Ian Poulter you suck but chances are you didn't.
