"Tiger made eye contact with the crowd."
If I hear one more ESPN anchor say this, I'm going to puke.
I can only hope that my friends who live in other parts of the world don't have to hear the endless babble about Tiger Woods and his line of sight habits.
This all came about because in his first news conference, strike that, his first public appearance months ago, since his wife smacked him upside the head with his own 9 iron, he stood in front of a select few and read a statement to the world as if he was giving a State of the Union Address.
In this statement, he said, among other things, that he was going to try to be a more likable Tiger, you know, interact with the crowd a bit, rather then going about his business in his usual robotic arrogant fashion.
Hey Tiger, it's not working. When Tiger tries to interact, or, make eye contact and smile, it is painful to watch, because it's painful for him to do.
The look on his face as he tries to naturally interact, is similar I would think, to the look some one gets just before he is about to get tazzered by a State cop in a bad mood.
The fact that "Tiger makes eye contact" is reported in print, on the internet and on cable TV speaks volumes about how truly unnatural it is for him...TO MAKE EYE CONTACT.
I can understand ESPN going crazy, but CNN?
Isn't there some thing in the world of news more important and interesting than this?
I was a huge fan of Tigers until recently. I loved that little cocky attitude he had. I loved that he basically said on a weekly basis he expected to win such and such a tournament.
Talk about pissing off your competitors!
I like that he would then go out and kick all their butts, then act like he wasn't surprised.
But then he became a dog. ( see the list of bar flies he cheated on his wife with)
Then he became a self righteous dog. ( see State of the Union address mentioned earlier.)
Then he became a arrogant dog. ( See interview after he came in 5th at the Masters.)
As my children would put it...
I'm sooo over Tiger.
