I consider myself somewhat savvy - or aware, at least - when it comes to these things, but I have to admit: all this Tiger Woods business did surprise me a little bit.
You mean you were shocked that this immeasurably wealthy, ultra-competitive athlete - who's constantly flying solo on the road - would cheat on his wife!? How unfathomable!
Yes, it now sounds a bit foolish, I know. The writing was probably on the wall. But, I don't know, Tiger always seemed like one of the few who wouldn't travel down this path.
If you asked me last week to name five athletes who likely went on the road beef-less, my list probably would have looked like this: Jim Thome, Tim Duncan, Greg Maddux, Peyton Manning, and Tiger. Oh, and AC Green.
