Oprah and everyone else, that is.
The race is on to snag the first big interview with Tiger Woods after his late-night car wreck and allegations of infidelity (the tally of women claiming to have carnal knowledge of his putter is now up to six).
Oprah, ESPN and the Golf Channel say they've requested on-camera interview; HBO Sports also put in a request but was turned down, spokesman Ray Stallone told USA Today. CBS's "60 Minutes" also is likely in the hunt.
Don Halcombe, a spokesman for "The Oprah Winfrey Show," also told them they, too, have reached out to Woods. "I do know there was a blog report that Oprah had personally called Mr. Woods himself -- that is not true," Halcombe said.
But Oprah seems a likely choice for any public confession. The sports networks are following the drama, but this is only an indirect sports story. Oprah is the natural and comfortable home for such discussions -- and she has the demographic of women Woods may want to speak to in this particular instance.
Even Woods' advisers agree. The UK Mirror reports: "The golfing star's team of lawyers and PR advisers are desperate for Woods to spill the beans on Oprah's sofa, possibly alongside his devastated wife Elin. A source said: 'Everyone around him believes it is the only way he will salvage any respect or even attempt to rebuild his family man image.' "
If she lands the interview, what should she ask him?
