Tiger Woods Having an Affair?

Dan Riehl had up-to-the-minute posting on Tiger Woods' car crash yesterday. I was too busy with the Salahi story and CRU to look into it. But sheesh, this is pretty big. Woods was hospitalized for facial lacerations, but it's being reported that Elin Nordegren, Woods' wife, inflicted the pain. TMZ has the story, "Tiger Woods: Injuries Caused by Wife, Not SUV." (Via Memeorandum.)

And Fox News has this, "
Tiger Woods' Car Crash Came After Explosive Story Claiming Affair":

Tiger Woods' bizarre overnight car crash outside his Florida home came only two days after the National Enquirer published an article claiming the golf champ was having an affair.

Police said they had no knowledge of a fight between Woods, 33, and his wife, Elin, before Woods left their house at 2:25 a.m. Friday — backing out of his driveway and plowing into a fire hydrant and a neighbor's tree in a gated community near Orlando.

The Enquirer's explosive story hit the stands Wednesday contending that Woods has been seeing New York night club hostess Rachel Uchitel and that the pair recently were spotted in Melbourne while Woods was playing in the Australian Masters tournament.

And Elin beat Tiger with a golf club? Ooh, that's harsh! See, "Tiger Woods Wife Elin Nordegren Furious Over 'Affair' With Rachel Uchitel in Australia."

The golfing great's wife, Erin Nordegren, said she rescued her husband from the wreckage using a golf club to smash the car window, but other reports emerging out of the US claimed she had used the club on her husband during their late-night row.

The fight that apparently led to the crash was reportedly sparked by tabloid reports Woods cheated on his wife with a nightclub hostess in Melbourne during the recent Australian Masters.

The Fox report says that Uchitel denies a relationship, but TMZ puts it more crisply, "Tiger's Alleged Mistress: I Never Saw His Putter."

My sense is that, boy, the super-sports celebrity life must be rough!


Man, did Old Tiger tire of his hot Swedish blonde model wife? Unbelievable! Elin was ranked the 3rd hottest sports wife in Coed Magazine's , "
Top 20 Sexiest Athlete Wives of 2007" (pictured):

But compare to Doug Ross, "Rachel Uchitel Photos: The Woman Reported To Have Caused Tiger's Wife to Lay a Smackdown on Him."

So who knows?!!

Our esteemed host asked, "So who knows?!!" Could I answer with, so, who cares?

Dana, it's news my friend. Have a little fun with it!

It is most unfortunate, Professor Douglas, that some bloggers feel the need to pad their Site Meter numbers by trolling for random Google traffic.

Careful research has proven that the Elin Nordegren nude photos are a hoax. However, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of Rachel Uchitel topless photos or Rachel Uchitel sex video.

We must strive to maintain high standards in the blogosphere.

Interesting situation. I say give Tiger Woods a break. In today’s world we insist that our American heroes be pure, beyond human. But we are, nonetheless, flawed humans. He has a beautiful, sexy wife. He probably loves her. Good for her for kicking his sorry ass for the tryst. But, he is a vigorous, relentless perfectionist, working all the time (if you are a guy, put yourself in his shoes). He plays on a level we will never know; focused in a way you and I could never imagine. For one of the most gifted sportsman of all time (MJ, Ali, a few others) – I say, why he hasn’t he had a string of affairs? World-class musicians make that part of their image and no one cares – it rarely hits the headlines. Media, the liberal media, that loves the anything-goes, will be on this for the sheer volume of sales. I just hope Tiger Woods isn’t reduced to apologies to the world. I am sick of hearing apologies - especially when it isn’t our business. Hey, if my wife hit me, affair, or not, I would pull out the driveway in a fury, and probably hit my tree as well. It is so easy to moralize when it isn’t us.

We have been mislead by Reagan, Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush Jr, Obama, and nearly every other public figure. Economic growth, job creation, and actual prosperity are not necessarily a package deal. In fact, the first two are horribly misunderstood. Economic growth/loss (GDP) is little more than a measure of wealth changing hands. A transfer of currency from one party to another. The rate at which it is traded. This was up until mid '07' however, has never been a measure of actual prosperity. Neither has job creation. The phrase itself has been thrown around so often, and in such a generic political manner, that it has come to mean nothing. Of course, we need to have certain things done for the benefit of society as a whole. We need farmers, builders, manufacturers, transporters, teachers, cops, firefighters, soldiers, mechanics, sanitation workers, doctors, managers, and visionaries. Their work is vital. I'll even go out on a limb and say that we need politicians, attorneys, bankers, investors, and entertainers. In order to keep them productive, we must provide reasonable incentives. We need to compensate each by a fair measure for their actual contributions to society. We need to provide a reasonable scale of income opportunity for every independent adult, every provider, and share responsibility for those who have a legitimate need for aid. In order to achieve and sustain this, we must also address the cost of living and the distribution of wealth. Here, we have failed miserably. The majority have already lost their home equity, their financial security, and their relative buying power. The middle class have actually lost much of their ability to make ends meet, re-pay loans, pay taxes, and support their own economy. The lower class have gone nearly bankrupt. In all, its a multi-trillion dollar loss taken over about 30 years. Millions are under the impression that we need to create more jobs simply to provide more opportunity. as if that would solve the problem. It won't. Not by a longshot. Jobs don't necessarily create wealth. In fact, they almost never do. For the mostpart, they only transfer wealth from one party to another. A gain here. A loss there. Appreciation in one community. Depreciation in another. In order to create net wealth, you must harvest a new resource or make more efficient use of one. Either way you must have a reliable and ethical system in place to distribute that newly created wealth in order to benefit society as a whole and prevent a lagging downside. The 'free market' just doesn't cut it. Its a farce. Many of the jobs created are nothing but filler. The promises empty. Sure, unemployment reached an all-time low under Bush. GDP reached an all-time high. But those are both shallow and misleading indicators. In order to gauge actual prosperity, you must consider the economy in human terms. As of '08' the average American was working more hours than the previous generation with far less equity to show for it. Consumer debt, forclosure, and bankruptcy were also at all-time highs. As of '08', every major American city was riddled with depressed communities, neglected neighborhoods, failing infrastructures, lost revenue, and gang activity. All of this has coincided with massive economic growth and job production. Meanwhile, the rich have been getting richer and richer and richer even after taxes. Our nation's wealth has been concentrated. Again, this represents a multi-trillion dollar loss taken by the majority. Its an absolute deal breaker. Bottom line: With or without economic growth or job production, you must have a system in place to prevent too much wealth from being concentrated at the top. Unfortunately, we don't. Our economy has become nothing but a giant game of Monopoly. The richest one percent already own nearly 1/2 of all United States wealth. More than double their share before Reagan took office. Still, they want more. They absolutely will not stop. Now, our society as a whole is in serious jeapordy. Greed kills.

All I can say is, I sure hope Tiger made her sign one hell of a prenuptial agreement.

If he didn't, he's an idiot.

Then again, perhaps world famous hotties with bleached hair and fake fun bags aren't all they are cracked up to be.
