Gatorade to Tiger Woods: See Ya Later, Alligator

2/26/2010 7:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gatorade is no longer thirsty for Tiger Woods -- the drink giant has officially cut off their endorsement deal with the golfer.

Gatorade to Tiger Woods: See Ya Later, Alligator

A rep for Gatorade told CNBC, "I can confirm that we no longer see a role for Tiger in our marketing efforts and have ended our relationship."

The rep added, "However, our partnership with the Tiger Woods Foundation will continue. We wish Tiger all the best."

Gatorade is the third company to give Tiger the boot in the wake of his sex scandal -- Woods was already dropped by Gillette and Accenture.

UPDATE: Tiger's agent released the following statement: "We have been in discussions with Gatorade, and while we are disappointed they have decided to not continue with Tiger in their marketing plans, we appreciate their continued involvement with Tiger through his foundation."

74. Any guy who would have unprotected sex with a porn star and then sleep with his wife like Tiger did is one cold human being.

Men much less wealthy than Tiger Woods who are married have unprotected sex with street hookers, call girls, escorts whatever you call them and then sleep with their wives!! Married men put ads on the internet looking for extramaritals affairs all the time. Read half the personal ads, it's mostly married men looking for single women. So, what's the difference?

Occasionally I see things posted with Tiger still in the thick of things.....it amazes me how he can generate all of this attention still. What gives this even more humor is that people from every where have commented on what is best for Companies Marketing Stratagies to "why is Elin still with him".....

Perhaps, investing as much time as all of you have putting him down or Elin down you should put in your own personal and professional lives. NO one can say they would have done something different....until they have walked in there shoes....

Shame on all of us for feeding off of someone else's misery....

Feeding off of others pain and misfortune is just like as bad as doing what they did.....

Unless you can say that your "PERFECT" then i suggest that you look at yourself before passing judgements.....
