A Warped POV by A. Dacosta Brathway
December 2nd, Wednesday? "FORE!" It's out! Tiger is hanging out!" It's in the hole!" This shit is kinda funny... Why? Well, what have we ever heard about Tiger Woods? He's the clean cut golf History chaser that will change what we think about heroes. He is THE representative of what we should want our heroes to look like, act like, and be like. Please... Truth be told, he is a high priced ball player! He plays for high stakes and he is good at it. Outside of that, he is disinterested in the public that worships him. And, he should be treated likewise. Tiger is not coming to your house for dinner, play with your kids, and enjoy your company. For those of you who are not over it, get over it. If you are looking for a hero, get with Charles Barkley. He can steer you in the right direction. To be honest, I'm glad that this happened. Now I can, maybe, watch a golf tournament with an understanding of who Tiger really is.Now-a-days it is difficult for me to think that any pro athlete does not have some dirt on him. You don't get "Tiger Woods" good and be squeaky clean.I admit, I was buying into the super geek thing. Now he is coming off more like a "stupid" geek. But I can not really blame him. Who can really live up to what he was living up to? I remember his mother proclaiming that he could never marry a black woman because she could not comprehend his life. How is it working out for the model?
