Tiger Woods: Navy Seal?
Laugh your guts out at this howler: Tiger Woods almost quit golf to become Navy SEAL.
That’s as believable as Tom Cruise almost quit acting to become a nuclear physicist.
The most heinous quote from the above link comes from Woods’ former coach (and it would appear, current sycophant) Hank Haney.
I thought, Wow, here is Tiger Woods, greatest athlete on the planet, maybe the greatest athlete ever, right in the middle of his prime, basically ready to leave it all behind for a military life.
Mr. Haney, please (and by the way, are you the Mr. Haney from Green Acres?): jokes are supposed to be funny.
Greatest athlete on the planet? Greatest athlete ever?! Woods is the 21st rated golfer in the world today (and with a bullet going the wrong way at that). Are you really a clandestine Nike publicist working at the gum-free Nike campus?
A better, but more wordy, headline would read Tiger Woods Fantasized About Being a Navy SEAL, Thought Better and Kept the Good Life.
