A Letter to One of Tiger's Sponsors

To Whom It May Concern,

Tiger is a proud man who was raised to be proud and that remains a problem for so many North American men of Anglo-European descent.

When Tiger was arrested for DUI the other day, talk show hosts like Charles Adler were speculating that, although Tiger said he was taking meds (four back surgeries in how many years?), he was likely drinking too, and he invited listeners to call in and agree or disagree.

I know talk show hosts are in the business of getting listeners to contribute content, and some will say anything to get them to do so, but for me this was the last straw, so I emailed Adler and told him as much.

Haven't heard back from Adler or his people, and don't expect to, but I feel a little better for having put that out in the world. Same too for this note, which in this instance is the opposite of an admonishment -- a thank you!

Thank you for standing by Tiger.
