The Tiger Woods Roller Coaster

“The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowing result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency and skill than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.” – C. Wright Mills

Tiger Woods once gained his celebrity through his dominance of golf. He once was that man “who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency and skill than anyone else.” However, now that his game is struggling, one would think that he would fall out of the public eye if you were following along with this quote. But Tiger Woods is more than just that talented man. He was involved with a huge sex scandal and now people are interested to see if he can ever get himself out of this hole he has dug himself.
