Monday, we officially learned from the source herself that Lindsey Vonn is dating Tiger Woods. They seem very happy together and that’s a good thing.
But it’s pretty funny to think back to his 2009 scandal … and how Vonn joked about his supposed sex addiction and how she wanted to parody him on SNL.
The jokes made headlines, both because of their content and their timing, as Vonn was in the middle of her star turn at the 2010 Olympics when Tiger apologized.
For cheating on Elin Nordegren with Rachel Uchitel, Jaimee Grubbs, Joslyn James, Devon James, Holly Sampson … and many, many others.
So what did Lindsey Vonn say when she watched his infamous mea culpa?
When a friend told her that Tiger hugged a few friends after his press conference, she joked, “They’re like, ‘Yeah, you’re awesome, you go have that sex.'”
Then she described a skit she would want to perform if asked to host Saturday Night Live: picture Lindsey Vonn at Woods’ podium, blue backdrop and all. “
There’s something you don’t know about me,” Vonn says in a faux solemn, apologetic voice. “Tiger, you’re like my idol, and I too have a sex problem.”
“That would be freaking funny.”
Better stick to skiing, Linds.
In all seriousness, the comments were harmless then and are harmless now, and only have drawn attention because … well, now they’re together!
We’re sure Tiger doesn’t remember or care. If he held grudges against everyone who made a joke at his expense back then, he’d be quite lonely now.
