Of Tiger Woods and Dropping Shoes...

Oh Dear, Tiger...The company you do keep!

It's not just bimbos and sluts of all descriptions, but now doctors who have been busted with banned performance enhancers!

It was reported today that Dr. Anthony Galea, a Canadian physician, was arrested at the U.S.-Canada border with a stockpile of a drug called Actovegin (a drug made form calf's blood) and Human Growth Hormone (HGH). The Doctor has also been accused (but it is not clear to me if it has been proven) of providing performance-enhancers to his athlete clients, one of whom was...Tiger Woods.

Considering what we know of your bedroom exploits, it would only be logical to assume that you used performance enhancers there (wink, wink), but on the golf course? Who the hell knows, but it's amazing what happens when someone gets outed; the dam seems to burst, and everything he's ever done, and everyone he's ever associated with, comes back to haunt him.

Frankly, I'm not one of those who gets all incensed about someone violating the supposed-sanctity of golf. It's hardly a sport, it's a stupid game for geeky rich men who believe they have passed beyond such proletarian activities, like bowling or softball, and there's not much of the athletic about it. Just look at John Daly -- if he had the things said about him as are being said about Tiger Woods, would have been kicked off the goddamned tour and convicted in the court of public opinion, already, never to play another round on the PGA again. After all, he's white -- a guy who smokes on the course, weighs 300-plus pounds, and probably never lifts anything heavier than a case of Twinkies and a six pack...on a good day.

So, if Tiger 'cheated' on the course with PED's, big fuckin' deal...19 Majors is not the same as 756 home runs.

That is actually a feat of athletic talent and skill.

And no, I'm not insinuating that Tiger did anything untoward...except fuck every golddigging skank in North America while he had a wife and children at home.

But, you know, you are often judged (fairly or not) by the company you keep. It's becoming apparent what sort of people surrounded Tiger.
