If the rumors are true and Tiger Woods is having an affair, that's none of my business. Years ago I ran into a Charlotte Hornet after a game near the Charlotte Coliseum. He was with a woman who was not his wife. He saw me and froze.
His look said, are you going to write this?
My look said, it's none of my business.
Later, there was a celebrity sports divorce in town and a woman called with alleged dirt on the guy going through the divorce. She couldn't believe I wasn't interested.
An affair is private. A car accident is public. Not sure what Tiger is thinking by declining to talk to the cops or the media. It could be that so many people treat him as if he's a deity that he believes he is a deity, floating above it all.
He's wrong. The longer the story lingers, the bigger it becomes and, in some ways, the smaller Tiger becomes.
