Back aboard the S.S. Tiger Hypocrite Woods

575249_10152697837965121_1097651375_nTiger's stuff is Tiger's stuff, but it would be nice if he quit asking that he be allowed to enjoy the many spoils he is "entitled" to as an A-list celebrity while also retaining his privacy like an obscure weekend golfer who sucks.

Sorry, quid pro quo golfer. It's 2013. You want to be rich and enjoy fame, the other side has teeth.

Today, Tiger Woods announced on Facebook that he and U.S. Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn are an item. Paging Nicholas Sparks!

Mr. Woods said in a statement: "Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes."

Tiger only thinks he wants to continue as an ordinary person. 

Elin-Nordegren-With-Wealthy-New-Boyfriend1A man for whom privacy is such a priority manages to find another high profile celebrity. Of course.
You want to be private? Don't do commercials. Don't stand on the sidelines at sporting events. Don't seek out highly visible people to date. Be invisible off the course. That's someone who wants to be private.

Tiger is rich and famous and can attract good looking blondes. Good for him. Enjoy it. But luxuries do have a few headaches. Deal with it, and quit asking everyone to continue to make exceptions for you.

(It is quite neat how Tiger managed to find a woman who looked nothing like the former Mrs. Tiger Woods, who in her post Tigre life has also managed to find a man who happens to have some money.)

I am glad that finally Tiger and Elin have moved on!!! I still think that Elin is the winner!!! Tiger has serious issues and I wish LV good luck with him!!! Yeah, there is no worst fool than one who cannot see what is in plain sight... What I find interesting is the fact that Tiger and LV went public after the media announced Elin was dating Chris Cline!!! It looks like LV is willing to put up with anything for the sake of MONEY$$$$!
