well they say it continues on way after you are released from the intense part, could be that is what he is saying. I bet he bit his tongue though. The mouth can be a terrible thing at times.

Forget everyone Tiger. Be who you are. The whores, the parties, thats you. Don't let them shame you. Don't be enticed by offers of endorsement money. If you want more money sell sex vibrators shape like mini golf clubs and call them Tiger's Wood, you'll make a fortune.

I think Elin Woods can learn a lot from the Conan O'Brien debacle... There are surprising parallels.

We can excuse someone for getting nervous talking about Tiger Woods, since Tiger Woods puts everyone on edge in an uncomfortable way! He doesn't quite have the friendly presence of a master global professional, like Gary Player, or the commitment to the good of the game, like Jack Nicklaus, or the sheer entertaining finesse like Chi Chi, no, from Tiger you get selfishness, rage, arrogance, throwing clubs and swearing on the course, and off the course, a whirlpool of bad energy. Elin is "walkin that dog".

Response to Carmen, of "10. Tiger completed an inpatient program and now he will need to continue his rehab as an outpatient.

I wonder if he'll make it. How can anyone so primitive and high on himself take rehab with any level of conviction?
