Are you saying that one day we'll forget all the negatives on TGC about Tiger? Because back then there was no 24-hr.news and it was sooo different. If somebody came along they didn't like, did the person know it the way they all tell Tiger on TGC every day, & at every tournament?
I'm just not sure what kind of analogy you're making here. Are you saying that one day everyone will forget all about the car-crash and ensuing disaster? I sure hope so. But even if he never wins another green jacket, he's still the greatest golfer. Will they remember that?
That's just part of what this generation has to deal with. Tiger mainly. As time goes on, it will again be Tiger's golf that people remember him by. He will bounce back from his low unlike a Mike Tyson who was unable to do so.
30 years from now, everyone will remember Tiger as the greatest ever instead of the guy who could have shot his career down. Tiger has bounced back and down the line, people will draw from that as respect. You can't live your life in a perfect bubble. The most admirable quality anyone can have is what he or she does when times get tough. Those who bounce back get admired for the right reasons.
See.....Johnny IS the MAN!! Sure could have used some Miller humor on ESPN today :-))
I was very sad that Arnie got sick and couldn't shake Tiger's hand or give him a hug the way he used to when Tiger won his tournament. I almost took it personally. Was this ever rectified? Does Arnie have good things to say about Tiger now? Will he ever again hug him like he did in previous tournaments?
I think Arnie's approval would go a long way in showing these other jerks how redemption works.
