So Tired of Tiger

I don't know about the rest of the world, but I'm very tired of seeing Tiger Woods on all the news stations. Yeah, he screwed up.  He is/was a "player" and the spotlight was aimed right at him the night he crashed his SUV into that tree in front of his house.  Then all the mistresses came out of the woodwork and had their 15 seconds of fame. (Can they please all go back into the woodwork?  Especially the stripper that keeps trying to get another 15 seconds!)

Ok, so Tiger is back playing golf. (Big deal! Bah!)  Can the news stations please cover him as sports news?  I thought that with the Masters was starting up, we'd have some mentions of the guy just because he's a big time golfer.  But today, he's big news again... Because of the new Nike commercial.  Have you seen it yet?  Of course you have, if you've watched any news on TV today.  If you haven't seen it yet, here's a YouTube video of it:

So what do you guys think?  All the news programs are asking what everyone's opinion of the commercial is... My answer?  It's creepy, Tiger looks lame standing there starting at the camera and could they PLEASE get him back on the sports casts and off the headlines?

Interesting... Nike Golf has blocked the ad from showing on YouTube... I wonder why they dislike free advertising? lol... If I find another copy of the ad somewhere that hasn't been blocked, I'll embed it here again....... Sorry!

Tiger who? LOL jk, although I'm trying to tune him out.

I heard yesterday on HLN that Elin is pissed about the Nike ad. My guess is someone's head is going to roll in an advertising company or marketing department at Nike. What were they thinking?

I figured it would be a matter of time before some creative folks started doctoring that ad if it was on YouTube. They can only hope someone didn't record it off TV....I won't be surprised to see some "new" versions popping up. geesh!

I've been trying to tune him out too... I had been hoping that since the Masters was over and he didn't win, maybe he'd lay low or something.. But the media keep going after him.. Ugh.. I heard about Elin being pissed about the ad too... Can't say that I blame her either.

I've seen a number of copies of the ad on YouTube and for the most part, they aren't there for long. Nike seems to be really chasing them down to *zap* them off the net. I still don't understand that.. Free advertising and all that.. Come to think of it, I haven't even seen the ad on tv in a bit now.. I wonder if Nike pulled it... (But, since I don't watch golf or most other sports, I wouldn't normally see a Nike ad.. lol)

Hi Anakerie

Completely off topic - I hadn't checked your blog for ages - so glad you started posting again and I love the San Francisco pics. Stayed at Fisherman's Wharf many years ago & had a fab time - maybe it was my youth as much as the locality but it was a great place to be at that time. Sounds like you enjoyed it just as much in 2010
