POP FLASHBACK: Three Years Ago, Tiger Woods’ Life Was Imploding. The NY Post Covers Got REALLY Creative.Featured, Scandal, Sports — By BrianBalthazar on 2012/11/23 12:01 am
Three years ago, on November 25, 2009, The National Enquirer was breaking a story on Tiger Woods. Sure, the mainstream media wouldn’t listen (at first) but before long, the world would be talking about the athlete’s scandal, and his life would be changed forever.
The storyclaimed Woods had an extramarital affair with New York City nightclub manager Rachel Uchitel. She denied it. She was lying.
Two days later, everything would really blow up in his face – and the mainstream media couldn’t ignore that maybe the National Enquirer was on to something. Early that morning, Woods was hightailing out of his drivway in his Cadillac Escalade SUV – collided with a fire hydrant, a tree, and some hedges. Again, he was leaving HIS OWN HOME.
Blah Blah Blah, Blah Blah Blah, he was a serial cheater with a gazillion* (*estimate) mistresses, and the rest is scandalous history.
Mind you, combining golf jokes with sex and lies is an area rampant with innuendo, and The New York Post did not disappoint. Whether or not you agree with their views, (and as sad as the circumstances of the story was,) you can’t deny they had some incredibly clever, raunchy, just plain wrong covers.
