Real Time Thoughts on the Tiger Presser

Are Tiger and Stevie poised for another messed-up-awkward high five on the 18th Green at Augusta this Sunday?  After today's presser the first major hurdle is out of the way.

I think he is being really honest and forthcoming - the only questions he's really avoiding are those having to do with his personal relationship with Elin and the kids. He mentioned how terrible it was to miss his sons 1st bday b/c he was in rehab... that came off as very sincere. He drank out of a Master's branded water bottle that had some sort of red liquid in it - could this be a ploy to interest another sport drink manufacturer? Was it a not so subtle attempt to flirt with Powerade? Tiger should lose the skeevy goatee, it is a 8 on the creepiness scale and totally unnecessary. He seems like a humbled man - he seems genuine and like he wants to be a better person first and a golfer second. Reporter just asked "did ambien play a role in your car accident?" - Tiger dodged this one by stating that there had been a police investigation and he had paid "166 bucks" . His front left tooth looked extra yellow compared to the right. He said totally understood why sponsors dropped him. Now some softballs about his expectations in terms of golf and q's about putting. He's gonna play in the Ryder Cup "if he qualifies".

I think he did a very good job and that is a huge step in coming back and turning his whole life around, this should have been the first press conference that he did, not that made for tv piece of shit. He explained the reasons that he was dealing with that ped peddling doctor was because of his success working with other athletes and that in no uncertain terms did he ever take ped's.

Finally, a reporter asked if he was ever addicted to Ambien, the proper follow up question should've been "are you addicted to pussy?"
