"This is how sports agents and crisis managers imagine speaking from the heart, but only in the abstract."

"It is somewhat the same way when they imagine sincerity. They think we're all as easy as the other women in [Tiger] Woods' (former) life."

The more interviews he gives, the more it will become clear that there is no good reason to answer any questions about this.

Ann, did you post this just to distract me from my depression this morning?

I'd be more impressed if he said "I love to play golf. That's what I want to talk about. My private life? It's private."

He had a sex addiction. Now he's addicted to talking about his sex addiction. The media enables it. I don't want to hear it.

Now I hear Sandra Bullock's biker husband has also been named as a cheating sex-ting phony.

Schadenfreude!

I'd be even more impressed if he had said, "I really messed up. I had the opportunity to sleep around and I took it. It's not an addiction. I can't blame anyone else. This is all my fault. I made stupid, selfish decisions because I thought I could get away with it. I don't expect anyone to forgive me, especially my wife, but I promise her this will never happen again. Maybe someday I will be worthy of her trust again."

Unfortunately, I smell media manipulation. A word of caution: He's really only parroting recovery-speak (acting as-if, as they say) - which, in truth, is all anyone can do 45 days in. The counting of days, at this point, is also not a good sign. This, of course, could change in good time. I actually could give a rat's ass about how his golf works out and hope he's more successful in this part of his life. Drop the handlers, Tiger.

This is great. Who will be the first babe to rouse the old Tiger?

Sex therapy. Think about that. What would it consist of? What would the end result be?

I didn't watch it, because it was certain to be pablum. Tiger Woods is not a cutting edge guy, so he's going to say what guys are supposed to say, which is sorry-mumble-mumble-sorry-let-peopole-down-try-to-be-a-better-person-time-wil-tell-still-rehab-rehab-lucky-to-have-a-good-wife-and-a-second-chance-rehab-rehab=sorry.

When the truth is he's sort of sorry and sometimes really sorry but he misses the wild pussy and being the super hero guy and he can't believe he fucked away all that money Erin's cool and hot but marriage is so strange and not much wild pussy it's so tempting but I know my life is fucked if I relapse and they tell me in ten or fifteen years I won't have a hard on for everything and maybe I'm really sorry I don't know I'm confused I just want to play golf and I'm afraid I won't be as good as I was and that would be really terrible I really do love my kids but I miss the wild pussy when will this end?

But he can't say that, can he?

If Tiger Woods can't beat Nicklaus' record of 18 majors will he use his sex addiction as an excuse?

Tiger's slightly ahead of where Jack was at age 34, but Nicklaus wasn't the whiny narcissist Tiger is.

Happy ending?

Tiger Woods is talking the talk. He's most sorry for getting caught. But in our Oprah-fied self-help nothing is our fault society, he'll get a pass.

Fame trumps integrity again.
