Doodle of the Day - Watery Eye of the Tiger!



Every day the sports news discusses how Tiger Woods needs to get back on track. He has plummeted from the pinnacle of prosperity, revealing his deceit, schemes, lusts, and desires on the way down, those which he had kept concealed for so many years behind his flawless, prince-like facade.

Tiger spent time away from golf, went to sex therapy, had a divorce and a surgery or two, and apparently worked on picking up the pieces. When he returned to golf he struggled, but everyone figured it was just a matter of time before he returned to form as the number one golfer in the world.

Some thought he initially struggled on purpose for sympathy points, a public relations move to win back his fans and eventually, his sponsors. But that theory no longer seems accurate, as Tiger hasn't won a tournament in almost two years. Two weeks ago at the PGA Championship, he missed the cut by seven strokes! His world ranking is now 36, the lowest it has been in 15 years. The year 2011 has been an aberration for Woods, and his complete collapse is as newsworthy as his past dominance. Although the media hasn't been able to pinpoint what Tiger is doing wrong on the golf course, perhaps the explanation is as simple as karma.

By now we all know that Tiger Woods is human. And yes, he cries too!
