I do play Nike golf balls, but not because of Tiger. I play them because I gave them a shot and like the way they feel coming off my club.

I'm not influenced by celebrity or marketing or branding. I could give a crap. So I get what you're saying, lots of people are influenced by those things. I guess I'm just saying I find that pathetic.
Gotta call you on this. So what influences you to buy Nike over another company? You're probably influenced more than you realize or what to admit.

People cheat on their wives/husbands for many reasons. It's not right and I feel horrible for Elin. It's a very embarrassing situation. But we're not inside their marriage. Maybe she wasn't doing things for Tiger that she use to do. Or maybe she isn't a good wife. Or maybe he just couldn't control himself cause he get can any pussy he wants. I'm willing to bet it's the ladder. I just think that if you know you're weak when it comes to women then simply don't get married. Derek Jeter is one of the smartest athletes out there.

re: Tiger Asks for Mulligan; Promises to Keep Driver in Bag

while jon and kate getting a divorce shoudln't get any air time i fell like this story is on a whole other level. this isn't just some random sports figure, this guy is an icon and the biggest name in sports right now hands down. and the reason his name is so big is because of the image he presents himself in, now it appears that this image is false and he has basically lied to the whole world, which upsets and offends a lot of people.

Basically I said that "it is a shame" that this....tawdry BS has become the substitute for news. For something meaningful. It is an indicator of how shallow, and meaningless we have become.

News is no longer the 30 minute evening broadcast with Peter Jennings (RIP). It's 24 hours across thousands of tv channels, radio stations, web sites, magazines, and newspapers. That's one reason why you have more and more stories like this. Besides, not all news needs to be hard hitting, Pulitzer prize winning journalism.

I agree, either do it the right away and get a divorce, or don't get married in the first place. If you want to bang skanks go ahead, but why get married and have kids??

No seriously. I first read consumer reports which liked Nike, Titleist, and one other which I cant remember. I eliminated the titleist based on price and tried the other two. Liked the Nike better.

Can you think of a story of substance (of late) that has and will command the spotlight the way this has?

And I think this is the chief reason why newspapars in print is a dying industry. By the time the paperboy hits your doorstep with the newspaper the vast majority of that news is either old to you or is of no interest. Nowadays we consume our news in specific chunks. If I want football, I go to NFL.com or NFL network. If I want Skins news I don't go to either of those, I go to www.thewarpath.net.

It's a really sad that we have to sift through all the BS and entertainment to actually get to a few minutes of actual information. Incidently, I believe that's why blogs have grown so rapidly and carved out a niche in the world of media.
