Tiger Woods scandal: America held hostage
What's the Tiger Woods alleged mistress count up to now? Ten? An even dozen? With more coming out of the woodwork every day?
If this keeps up, he could challenge the record of the legendary Wilt Chamberlain, the pro basketball Hall of Famer who claimed to have slept with 20,000 women.
How did he have time to play ball?
And this morning there are reports that a middle-aged woman, who appears to be Tiger's wife's mom, was rushed to a hospital from Tiger's home complaining of stomach pains.
Who WOULDN'T have stomach pains if you were holed up in Tiger's house, peering behind the drapes at the media circus taking place outside the gated Florida community where he lives?
Then last night, David Letterman, of all people, took a few shots at Tiger and the burgeoning scandal in his opening monologue and Top 10 list entitled "Top 10 ways Tiger Woods can improve his image."
As usual, the Top 10 list was hilarious.
"Safely land golf cart in Hudson River," was one suggestion.
"Find Osama bin Laden" was another.
And the no. 1 way Tiger Woods could improve his image: "Blame Letterman."
It was funny stuff. And the late-night comedians and pundits will continue to have a field day with the Tiger scandal until the guy comes out of his house and addresses the issue.
Stone-walling never works in these scandals. You'd think Tiger was smart enough to know that.
