    Default tiger in "serious" condition

    Professional golfer Tiger Woods was seriously injured in a car accident early this morning, the Florida Highway Patrol just reported.

    Woods, 33, pulled out of his driveway in the Isleworth community about 2:25 a.m. when he struck a fire hydrant, and then drove into a tree at his neighbor's property, FHP reported.

    Woods was transported to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee in serious condition, FHP said. No other information about his condition has been released.

    FHP said the airbags in Woods' Cadillac Escalade did not deploy, which means the vehicle was traveling under 33 mph.

    First thing I thought considering the time this occurred was "Uh-oh, holiday and alcohol". But according to USA Today, the FHP report indicates it wasn't a factor.

    I'm not getting how 'serious condition' you can be in from such an accident. Are we talking head injury here from slamming against the steering wheel?? I don't know what else could be 'serious'.


    Either way, this story SUCKS BAD!!! I'm a HUGE fan of Tiger.

    Hey, at this point it sounds iffy to me as well. We'll see how this shakes out. No one is saying his character is above reproach, but there is no reason to be so cynical either.

    Jesus, man....ease up. Give the story a chance to develop. If he was legally drunk we'll know about it. No one is safe from the media these days....they WANT it to be a story like that!

    Rudy Tomjanovich was famous for driving his car into trees, buildings, off the road, whatever. Alcohol was NEVER a contributing factor...at least not in the news. The guy brought two championships to town with the Rockets...there was no way the local media was going to trash him.

    Of course, now he's peddling 12-step and mystical energy stones he credits with allowing him to stop drinking booze and doing blow.

    Billy Joel was also protected...until they couldn't protect him anymore.

    I dont see anything wrong with people's successes and influences buying them some discretion and protection when they have a blunder like this. We have enough media/blog driven crucifixions and I'm really tired of all the outrage. Hopefully when I make it big, I can use that influence to keep the cops from telling the world I drank too much and decided i just HAD to have nachos and accidently hit the hydrant and tree at the end of my driveway.

    I say the odds are pretty even that he was drunk/high or just fiddling with his satellite radio/ipod or...god forbid and may he burn in hell for it...texting.
    Stay out of it, dude.


    I am Van Halen.
