Afternoon Roar – thought

“I go home, sit on the settee watching TV. It’s what I have to do to stay fit.” – Ryan Giggs on staying fit at 36

Only if it was that simple for the rest of us. Especially for a few, who bloat on love, fresh air or merely by looking at a brownie.

Tiger, Tiger burning bright….

Tiger Tiger. burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye.
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
– The Tiger, William Blake

Tiger has been burnt alright! Acknowledging transgressions and sins comes at a whooping million dollar plus. Since, he is the world’s best golfer; forgiveness can be earned in exchange for the copious millions he is ready to give. Rumored figures surround anywhere from $5/8 m.

The whole fiasco leaves Elin Nordegren, Tiger’s wife broken hearted but singing all the way to the bank. A $5/8 m compensation for cheating on her and all the millions she rightly deserves from their pre martial agreement. Reports surfaced that the couple signed an agreement before marriage; which states that Elin is eligible for $20 million if they are divorced after 10 years. Some reports claim that in another seven years of being Mrs. Tiger Wood she gets $80m. Quite an impressive deal breaker Mr. Woods is, I say.

So, what’s new? Tell me a sport that hasn’t had its share of contemptible scandals. Come to think of it, I think I haven’t heard a scandal involving chess players. Pardon my ignorance in case you have. I feel sad for Tiger’s public relation team. Years of hard work drowned, for the PR team that is.

Which do you think is the sport with the least scandal and controversy? Drop in a line.
