Tiger Woods is here to inspire those that have gotten down on the world of sports recently.
And for once, this golfing god is not doing it through the use of his driver.
Instead, Tiger and wife Elin Nordegren are the proud parents of Sam Alexis Woods, a celebrity baby that may just rival Shiloh Nouvel for cuteness.
People magazine reports that the Woods family, which includes dogs Taz, a border collie, and Yogi, a labradoodle, are doing well.
"This is truly a special time in our lives and we look forward to introducing Sam to our family and friends over the next few weeks," Tiger wrote in a message on his site on June 18, the day Sam was born.
The couple's first child was born during a time when athletes aren't exactly acting as role models. Consider:
- Tom Brady has fathered a child out of wedlock with Bridget Moynahan.
- Barry Bonds is a jerk who has obviously taken steroids.
- Mark Philippoussis has reportedly slept with many loose women, including Paris Hilton and Tara Reid. Yuck.
- Professional wrestler Chris Benoit allegedly murdered his wife and son before taking his own life.
Indeed, it's a troubling time to be a sports fan. But Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren remind us that there's still beauty in the world of athletics.
Of course, Amanda Beard nude photos also help us remember this fact.
Woods and Nordegren, a Swedish former nanny and model he met at the 2001 British Open, were married in 2005.
