A friend sent this to me. Thank you Tiger.


I am not a golfer, nor am I a sports nut that idolizes sports figures. I feel they are overpaid, even taking into fact their short productive years. But... one has to admire Tiger Woods for the following:
(Ed)
AS IF YOU NEED ANOTHER REASON TO ADMIRE TIGER WOODS... HERE'S A COPY OF HIS SPEECH AT THE 2009 INAUGURATION:

Tiger Woods received a special invitation to speak at the obama inauguration. His inviters were stunned, shocked when he did not deliver the message
they expected. A brief read and you will understand why the media swept Woods' remarks under the rug with no further ado and why the liberal
left of our American society was again displeased with Tiger.

His speech was entitled:"You'll Never Walk Alone" [text is word-for-word as posted on Tiger's web site]

"I grew up in a military family - and my role models in life were my Mom and Dad, Lt. Colonel Earl Woods. My dad was a Special Forces operator
and many nights friends would visit our home. They represented every branch of the service, and every rank.
In my Dad, and in those guests, I saw firsthand the dedication and commitment of those who serve. They come from every walk of life; from every part of our country. Time and again, across generations, they have defended our safety in the dark of night and far from home.
Each day -- and particularly on this historic day -- we honor the men and women in uniform who serve our country and protect our freedom. They travel to the dangerous corners of the world, and we must remember that for every person who is in uniform, there are families who wait for them to come home safely.
I am honored that the military is such an important part, not just of my personal life, but of my professional one as well. The golf tournament we do
each year here in Washington is a testament to those unsung heroes.
I am the son of a man who dedicated his life to his country, family and the military, and I am a better person for it.
In the summer of 1864, Abraham Lincoln, the man at whose memorial we stand, spoke to the 164th Ohio Regiment and said: 'I am greatly obliged to you, and to all who have come forward at the call of their country.'
Just as they have stood tall for our country - we must always stand by and support the men and women in uniform and their families.
Thank you, and it is now my pleasure to introduce the US Naval Glee Club .."

Tiger Woods' 2-minute, 5-second tribute to the our nation's military was delivered January 18th at the Inaugural Celebration in Washington, DC! He had been subjected to intense pressure to attend and offer remarks. Especially so by liberals who have demeaned and criticized him for a decade for not
joining their ranks. Yet, at the Lincoln Memorial, instead of paying homage to Barack Obama, Tiger paid tribute to our soldiers. Not once did Tiger
mention obama, the inauguration or the new administration. He had to understand expressing his love for America and appreciation for our military
men and women would disappoint the national news media and the liberal left. But Tiger is his own man; his father taught him to be his own man.

Somewhere over that cold, gray Washington sky, Colonel Earl Woods was smiling down on his beloved son. And there will be one more crying hug waiting for Tiger when the time comes he passes through heaven's gates into God's arms.

What's that you say?
You did not previously know what Tiger said? You did not see a video clip of him speaking on any national television network? You did not see a photo of Tiger at the Lincoln Memorial offering his remarks honoring our military. You did not read a story in the NY Times? His appearance at the Inaugural Celebration had been widely hailed and promoted in advance by the obama inaugural organizers . .. . yet January 18 when he came and spoke ... afterwards, a black out.
Oh, well.
If you are as tired of the biased, hypocritical, liberal media bias as I am, pass this on......

IMO, another modern "new age" crime. BS "news stories" being ran through email. Republicans are especially good at it, making up BS stories about the opposite party. Either way, I still hate the media.

The media completely blows, and both parties use false information to push any angle they see fit.

Cola, it's nothing to be sorry for, but it's crap through the Internet like this story, that makes me not believe anything on the Internet, unless it's authored by someone on PB. ;)

You slept from 2001 thru 2008, did ya, or just not on the internet.

Driveby there knows all about bullcrap in his e-mail, but then, he seems to have time to check out it's veracity, this administration.

Someone paying you now ultra? :)hand

I suppose that everyone believes SNOPES? Mayby you should look into them a little and see which way their political leanings face. You might be surprised that they are not politically neutral, like most everyone believes... I'm just saying...:D

Almost verbatim the things someone above was saying about them a couple years, a message board, and an administration, ago.

Now they are his #1 debunking source.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.............................


I'm just saying... :D

Tiger is one smart cookie ! I am a golf fanatic and read everything about everybody. Tiger is low key cool calm and collective and does not spark any contreversy about anything. You wnt to know whats wrong with Tiger ??? NOTHING !!!!! As a footnote, John Daly had it ALL and is the quintecential 'Anti Tiger' !!!!!! I always thought Micheal Jorden, for a guy in his position was an extreemly smooth operator also.

Tiger was very fortunate to have 2 great parents that taught him values.

He shows some emotion on the course but he is a very private person that won't be caught up in controversy or baited into making a statement the media can pounce on.

Daly to me is a real good person that is just having fun with his life. His problem is his addiction problems get him in to far more difficulty than he can overcome. He's a tragic figure in many ways.
