NEXT TIME LEBRON JAMES WILL LEARN TO LIE JUST TIGER: Tiger Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren had the couple’s first child on Monday morning, Sam Alexis. There’s been plenty of discussion about the date of birth since and how it might’ve impacted Woods at the U.S. Open, but very little talk about the misdirection play pulled by the golfer with the media about the actual due date.
Several media outlets, including the LONDON TELEGRAPH, reported earlier this month that Woods said the baby would be born around the time of the British Open, which tees off July 19.
Woods: “Being there for the birth is the most important thing - not a golf tournament. If Elin is going to have the baby during the week of The (British) Open, I don’t go. It’s that simple.
“My intention is to play at Carnoustie but I really don’t know what is going to happen. Hopefully, the baby will be healthy and will arrive on time. But at the moment, I cannot be certain about my schedule.
“I will base it around the birth but my playing plans are still up in the air. Your guess is as good as mine.”
So Woods’ prediction was off by a month, and there’s been no discussion whatsoever that the baby might be premature. Your guess is as good as mine as to why the media is (apparently) covering for him.
I wonder if Lebron James learned anything from this?
