Puli Maram

Contemporary logic avers that keeping up with current affairs and being knowledgable are the same thing. Current affairs is delivered to these knowledge seekers via news media. The same news media that has in the last few days spent countless hours analyzing the effectiveness of Tiger Wood's apology. How does anybody measure the effectiveness of an 'orchestrated' apology? Doesn't the fact that it is anaylzed make the apology look more fake? Who are these specimens who seems to care deeply about Tiger Wood's apology? Why does it matter to them? Are these the same set of people who seek to know current afairs like it was some exam syllabus they need to cover.

Set aside for a moment that golf is more boring than watching cow dung slapped on the wall get dry. And is probably less entertaining than watching news about golf - which I can tell you is mind-numbingly boring. Are these current-affairs junkies following Tiger Woods because of his "eka pathni vradhan" skills? What does the fact that he screwed around have anything to do with his golf skills? Is it even relevant to the "sport"? So do these people realize that Tiger Woods is a filthy rich man? Rich men sleep around with as many women they want because they can. The non-filthy rich fill the bank balance void by watching current affairs, getting enraged and analyzing apologies.

Tiger woods news sucks..... dont waste ur time by writing about that shit ..... worse than a ballon boy story

ms said...

tiger woods has demonstrated that he has only one talent, knowledge about balls. he is just mono-skilled. and enuff said about his apology: looked sedated and transfixed in the spotlights.

Blame it on these 24 hr news channels. With not enough real news around, these arm chair analysts spend their day analyzing news to fill up the hours.

I don't believe any apology is 100% sincere after getting caught... Its more of a forced apology to save your face particulary in case of a celebrity.. The fact that it took him so long and a staged conference with a group of ppl he wanted to be there, tells you that the whole thing was either directed by scorcese or soderbergh..:)

Hawkeye,
Its a known fact that the media like to glorify or trash someone they want to. A classic example is MJ. There is no point discussing about 'em.

"Rich men sleep around with as many women they want because they can"

not true. if you are reasonably attractive, or rather, comparatively attractive ( more attractive than your peers ), you will get more "offers" to grope, make out, sleep around etc. being rich is neither here nor there. any lady would be a fool not to sleep with a surya or siddharth. by the same token the lady would be a bigtime fool to sleep with a narayana murthy. she might as well sleep with kanja karuppu.

I agree with the last anonymous. Hawkeye, I have been reading your blogs for sometime now..and I keep coming back, cuz I like what you write.
I must say I am surprised/disappointed with your tiger woods one!

you mean to say that a nalli kuppu saami chetty wont get a sridevi or a saravana store 'kumbudu' won't get shriya? the list of ugly filthy rich men bagging hot chics is endless. not even a debatable topic.

in fact i'll say that looking good is neither here nor there. having money is a high confidence indicator. ask the ladies who were sitting for 3 years besides the AP governor waiting for an erection, they will tell you that hourly rates are much better than looks.

ellam eyewass. If that female divorces him next year, am sure he'll find another girl !David Letterman to kamal hassan to kalaignar to lot of people on the blog world have multiple affairs. Apology not required and so was an analysis. Unfortunately the company i work for dropped him the very next day.
