"Tiger: Are You My Daddy?" - An aerial banner mocking Tiger Woods appeared above the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach today.
Is there anything creepier than a big, beer-breathed celebrity athlete exposing himself in a night club and hitting on underage girls, all the while protected by an entourage of off-duty cops? Well, yes. It’s the big, corporate sponsor — Nike, in this case — that continues trying to sell product with the creep as their role model…
What, exactly does it take for Nike to dump a jock? Dog-fighting will do it. After Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick pleaded guilty to running a felony dog-fighting ring, Nike took action. “We consider any cruelty to animals inhumane and unacceptable,” the company said at the time.
But cruelty to women is O.K…”

Jamie Jungers won the Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant on the “Howard Stern Show” this morning.
uumm wasn’t it Arianna Huffington I saw on a recent Real Time with Bill Maher decrying the coverage of such non stories like ‘Air Traffic Control Kid’ and ‘Balloon Boy’. I guess Tiger’s ‘wood’ is BIG enough for Arianna.

saddest thing about this pic is that I had to flip to cspan2 to catch the end of Pres. Obama’s town hall meeting.
so much analysis, months of it asking whether or not this policy or that policy (health care, energy plan, etc) has been ‘sold’ correctly and crap like this gets wall to wall coverage. I don’t want the media to sell any particular policy but a ton of the blame for America’s ignorance lies with them.
