Lessons from Ancient Greek

First let me be clear that I do not care about sports or athletes. I am not awed by celebrity status and do not follow celebrity news. But the big story of the week, which has been inescapable, has me totally disgusted.

I have one word for you Tiger Woods: HUBRIS

You are the quintessential definition.

Your own pride and arrogance will be your demise. I don't care if this scandal has nothing to do with how great you are at golf. I hope you lose all of your sponsors and I hope your beautiful wife decides that no amount of money or renegotiating of the pre-nups is worth keeping your sorry arse around. Now in addition to witnessing your poor sportsmanlike behavior when your game is off (rumor has it anyway... though I don't watch golf), every time we turn on the TV, we all get to watch as you demonstrate what kind of man/husband/father you really are.

Ok, that was more than one word there at the end... I just want him off the news.

Too bad he didn't figure it out before he took his first misstep.

And speaking of news, at least it meant we didn't have another day of headlines regarding Jon and Kate Plus Eight.

Wow, that really was the perfect word! Hubris. I'll try to remember that.

Maggie May said...

Agreed. I'm not even in the US yet and I'm already sick of seeing his startled eyes every time I turn on my computer. I hate men like that.
