Was It A Cry For Help

Last month, we received the alarming news that Golfing Great Tiger Woods was involved in a life-threatening automobile accident; which was the latest in a series of career-jeopardizing events that he's experienced in recent years.

To anyone who was a fan of Tiger's, and thrilled to his on-the-course exploits, this has all been a great tragedy. But this recent event sure seemed like the crux de gras - the final chapter. Intense speculation following the accident included everything from his being DUI, high on drugs, or event an extreme orgasm from some good ol' oral sex performed by one of his groupies.

But on Saturday, Tucker Carlson's website reveal new information that dispels any of those previous rumors. Instead, evidence retrieved from his vehicle's black box indicates something much more tragic. It appears that the accident may have been intentional. According to the story, "investigators believe Woods never hit the brakes as his car veered off a roadway near the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes in late February." And they add that, "there was no evidence to suggest that Woods ever even took his foot off the gas."

If the investigators' report is correct, this would indicate that Tiger was either extremely despondent over his career and personal relationship debacles and it was a suicide attempt, or it was a "SOAPDISH" moment.

What's a "SOAPDISH" Moment?

In 1991, Sally Fields and Whoopi Goldberg starred in a comedy feature film titled "SOAPDISH." Ms. Fields played an aging television soap opera star, and Ms. Goldberg plays a dedicated show writer. Whenever the Sally Fields character gets very depressed, Whoopi Goldberg takes her to a shopping mall to stage a fan support episode to lift her spirits. This basically entails Whoopi pretending to recognize Sally at the mall and shouting her name out so that shoppers all run up to Sally Fields to tell he how much they love her. In other words, a "cry for help."

I guess we'll find out some day. Stay tuned...
