Tiger Woods‘ first public statement since his life went sideways on Thanksgiving was the story of the morning Friday (Feb. 19), dominating coverage not just on sports channels but also on cable and network news.
What we’d like to know from you is: Was it worth all that? We’ll grant that Woods is among the four of five most famous athletes in the world, and that fact coupled with the details of his downward spiral — the numerous affairs, the weird Thanksgiving-night car accident and his relative silence save for a few statements on his web site — have stoked huge interest in what he’d have to say on Friday.
But did the 13-minute apology/statement warrant the extensive coverage it got outside the sports media? And are you buying what Woods had to say?
Watch the video and give us your thoughts in the comments.
