Blind Item of the Day
Meanwhile, back in Florida…
I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.
Dude, it was just an Escalade. It was insured. You must have a warehouse full of them. Cut yourself some slack.
Or are you referring to something else?
Tiger comments on current events [TigerWoods.com]
Sports star fucks someone other than his wife … BIGGEST NEWZ EVAR! I am so sick of this story. I am sick of Tiger’s putter, and I am sick of the Salahis. I am sick of hearing about their polo event and their bills, and I am sick and tired of seeing them sashaying across the floor like they own the place.
In related news, “transgressions definition” is rocketing up the Google Trends chart. D:
Leads me to ask why does a guy who tomcats like Tiger get married in the first place.
If I’m a young very talented albeit very awkward guy (from what I understand) rolling in dough and the ladies then marriage would probably be the last thing on my mind for a while.
However, he does have an Asian mother… and I’m familiar with the breed having one. The sort who often whines about settling down and marrying someone like her (um, not that I’ve had to endure that or anything…)
@blogenfreude: I’m so bored with the Salahis, I haven’t mentioned them since the news broke.
Tiger, on the other hand — well, it’s just too much fun. Comic Noir: the scene opens on a totaled Escalade in a wealthy star’s driveway, and the story unfolds as Elliot Gould investigates.
is this, like, the dumbest thing ever or what.
its like putting a sign on you ass that says “kick me”.
someone needs to tell the guy when to stfu.
in other celebrity news, Meredith Baxter Birney is a carpet muncher.
family ties are indeed evolving.
@ManchuCandidate: What’s amazing to me is how carefully he, in concert with the media, was able to manage his brand. Until he wasn’t. I believe he’s been getting some on the side throughout his marriage.
@Capt Howdy: Bridget Loves Bernice.
Of course he was. Women flying out of the woodwork. Apparently, Tiger isn’t the type who only does hole in one.
@blogenfreude: At this point, his best bet is to become a Lovable Rogue like Trevino.
is that a beaver on a golf course?
The Gopher from Caddyshack.
even tho I have never seen that movie I should have known that.
In other news, the children of NY are safe from the homos. And my dogs remain the little bastards they have been till now.
Perhaps next ‘Pride’ day we should cancel the march and stage a little vigil where the Stonewall used to be. A nice sock in the finances might prove instructive.
@Benedick: Yeah – once again the GOP has taken a firm stand against basic civil rights. Nothing to see here …
I keep wondering why he wasn’t driving a Buick. The rest? Meh.
@Capt Howdy: I love the part about her coming out to her children. How novel.
@JNOV: I think that Buick, a “damaged” brand, couldn’t afford him anymore, so no more contract. But recall – the Chinese love them some Buicks.
my third and last partner had to go through a similar experience without the good feelings and outcome. he had two boys and the both disowned and refused to see him. he died from aids complications without ever seeing them again. that was a few years ago (late 80s). not fishing for sympathy at all but that was such a “happy” story I just felt I needed to ground it a bit in reality with yesterday being Aids Day and all.
@Capt Howdy: Fair enough.
@Capt Howdy: I’m so sorry. I have to go away now. That’s unspeakable.
that was probably uncalled for. I just feel bad that I missed the national day of mourning. there are so many to mourn.
ignore me when I become maudlin.
@blogenfreude: That article is from 2005? Impressive memory there, Bloggie.
@Capt Howdy: Not uncalled for. I’m so sorry.
thank you but I am a rare thing. and old gay man. I have lost so many it doesnt even really hurt to talk about it any more. the question for me has stopped being why did they all have to go but why was I allowed to stay.
its a mystery I will never solve. its just on my head to remember them and try to make sure others do.
@Capt Howdy: I only lost one close friend. Others lost everyone they knew. I have no idea why. None of it makes any sense.
@JNOV: I am a reservoir of useless automotive facts.
And damn I love fafblog:
And just as America can’t afford to abandon this war, surely it can’t afford to abandon the Afghan people, who without the American military would be left to the savage whims of their hated enemy, the Afghan people. Indeed, it remains America’s solemn duty as the leader of the free world to bring freedom and security to the Afghan people by hunting down and eliminating the Afghan people. Nor can America forget its own national security, and the dire threat posed by the Afghan people to our war against the Afghan people.
aids was less depressing.
When I saw that, my first thought was, “what if the Voting Rights Act and/or school desegregation had been put up to a vote state-by state?” Or even worse, a public referendum?
I had this argument a lot when I was in californication with my pseudo liberal friends.
no, just because a majority of people want something does not make it right or even constitutional.
I was in NYC in the 70s and 80s. so, not everyone I knew but close enough.
Gays in New York should just stop buying Abercrombie and hair products. That would bring the economy to its knees.
@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches:
and keep a lot of gays off their knees.
@Capt Howdy: Noooo!
OTH, kewl (youth crush revived)
@nojo: Fly, Lesbian Seagull.
Did Meredeth check her contractor’s references?
So . . . are we done with Tiger’s Wood?
@redmanlaw: With that phone call to the squeeze now breaking? And the news that the club was a wedge?
No, not done yet. Although it’s one of those stories where we’ll wait for the good twists.
@nojo: I emerge from my secluded lair to this?* The “Kobe Special/house on a ring” comment was pure klass. Guess that’s what they were calling a “Tiger Slam” some years back.
*Cheney left behind some nice snacks.
@Capt Howdy: I’m a carpet muncher, too, just call me Colonel Angus. Big deal.
The Tiger dude was apparently running a whole string of hoes. And it wasn’t that he did the rock star act, and had one-nights with groupies, he kept them strung along for years. It is a wonder why he married, if thats his M.O. Or if he was going to marry, marry someone he could be honest with, and have an arrangement, “I’m not exclusive.” Hey, that seems to be the case with a lot of celebrity wives, they know the score, and if its at least honest and both agree, thats one thing, but this was ridiculous.
@Capt Howdy, @Benedick: Amazingly, I did not lose anyone close. Go figure. Um, Yet. It’s not over by any means. I’m sorry about your partner, Howdy.
@blogenfreude: That is pure genius. And so funny in the way that only true things can be so funny they make you not just pee, but also vomit.
