“Did you learn anything?”

Nike decided to stand by its man Tiger Woods. Now they’ve released a new commercial using the voice over of his late father Earl Woods.

It will be interesting to see if this does anything for Tiger’s image as he tries to rebuild his reputation following his scandal.

What do you think of the commercial?


Return of the Tiger

The much-anticipated return of the world’s most infamous golfer is nearing closer and closer.

Tiger Woods will be at Augusta for the Masters doing what he does best. Playing Golf. But after all this time off many people wonder if he is still the best. Anyone who has followed Tiger’s career has seen him defy the odds time and time again. In fact whenever there is a tournament there are only two competitors; Tiger and the field. We have seen him play through the death of his father and a severely injured knee and come out on top both times. But this just might be the biggest outside story that has ever affected Tiger Woods.

In a sport where you are essentially alone and have to block out outside and inside distractions we will quickly see how well he can put all of his problems to the side and just play golf. I’m not typically a betting man, if I had to put my money on one guy, I’d put it on Tiger Woods.

Crocodile Tears From Tiger

If you’re like me and you watched Tiger Wood’s “press conference” or “statement” or whatever that was supposed to be, you probably were thinking…C’mon Son.

Tiger’s seven minute apology was laughable at best. It didn’t really need to be done, because most people were over the story. He stumbled and paused throughout the speech, which makes me wonder if he wrote it. It certainly didn’t answer any questions about what happened and what will happen in the future. And on top of all of that he didn’t get his image back. And he made it worse by getting mad at the media for following his family members around after the scandal made news. Hello? You’re only the biggest sports star on the planet. What were you expecting? To top all of it off Tiger goes to his mother and starts crying on her shoulder at the end of the press conference.

The only good things that came out of this “statement” or “apology”, were him saying he will play golf again eventually and him saying he will keep his private life private. I respect him for saying he will keep his personal affairs between his wife and himself, because it’s not the public’s business. As far as his statement goes…he should probably get a better publicist to write his speeches.
