Tony Parker is just the latest athlete to be involved in a text message scandal. But it was a year ago this Thanksgiving news broke of the Tiger Woods cheating allegations. While Parker and Brett Favre have been giving Tiger some time off by dominating the headlines, Tiger has begun a PR campaign to help restore his image.
The golfer even joined Twitter, @TigerWoods, posting two tweets yesterday:
”What’s up everyone. Finally decided to try out twitter!”
“‘Yep, it’s me. I think I like this twitter thing. You guys are awesome. Thanks for all the love.”
In just one day, Tiger has attracted more than 180,000 followers. Along with trying to connect with fans on Twitter, the normally private Tiger has embarked on a media campaign. This morning, Tiger did an almost 20-minute interview with ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike. In the interview Tiger revealed, “It’s amazing how much better I feel internally each and every day. How thankful I am to have the connection to my kids,” Woods said. “I feel so much better and everything is in much better perspective now.”
After his Mike and Mike interview, Tiger tweeted, “The best part about phone interviews is getting to wear shorts.”
