Tiger Woods: Shirtless in Vanity Fair

by at . Comments

The Tiger Woods scandal continues to fascinate, even with little or no new details surfacing in weeks. See this month's shirtless Tiger Woods Vanity Fair cover.

We suppose, given that this was one of the most shocking celebrity scandals of the decade - nay, the millennium - it may fuel celebrity gossip for some time.

In addition to "raw" and "never-before-seen" photos by Annie Liebovitz (taken before the scandal), Vanity Fair features a essay by sportswriter Buzz Bissinger.

The Friday Night Lights author reflects on a fall from grace unlike any before in American sports. Anything new? Not really. Compelling writing? Absolutely.

Hey, he may be in seclusion somewhere (Arizona, Florida, NYC's Trump Tower, etc.), but who needs new stories when they can ogle Tiger Woods shirtless.

Of the Vanity Fair cover photo, Liebovitz says she captured the "intensely competitive athlete" in what turned out to be a state of "prophetic isolation"...

Tiger Woods, shirtless, pumps iron in a photo taken before his sex scandal erupted. Nowadays he is better known for pumping mistresses. Sorry. It's a slow news day.

How the mightiest of athletes has fallen in the past month. Of the 33-year-old golfer's incredible demise, at least in the world of public opinion, Bissinger writes:

"In the end it was the age-old clash of image versus reality. [Tiger Woods] deluded himself into thinking he could be something that he wasn’t: untouchable."

"The greatest feat of his career is that he managed to get away with it for so long in public, the bionic man instead of the human one who hit a fire hydrant."

That's hard to argue with.

Although if he convinces Elin Woods to stay married to him when the scandalous dust finally settles, that would arguably rank #2. Or a close #3 behind his 14 majors.

Looks to me like he's been keeping a golf ball in his navel, yuk! AND.... Tiger or Fox, he sure was sly enough to keep his public fooled for years, I hope he gets what he deserves & let's see Camillo Villages take his spot as #1, that would be sweet :)

Tigers are feline mammals, officially Panthera tigris. They certainly are not human nor appear human unless the person seeing them as human is taking way too many drugs or drinks.
Eldrick Woods is a human being and a self-acknowledged cheating husband.

Must be the Human Growth hormone kicking in.

I'm sure that Cheetah's wife and kids are so happy he's good at golf, considering he apparently sucks at being a decent human being.
Being able to hit a little white ball is not a virtue.

Certain ones still keep talking bad about Tiger, but that still does not take away the fact that he is still the world best golfer and he is still have billions. You can try and break his Spirit but you cannot take away the facts, I still like him and I will be glad when he returns because I will not watch golf until
he does, there is no one else with his swagger.
