While I see Whoopi's point, part of his appeal for Nike, et al., has been his role model quality. Hard to believe his parents approve of this behavior. He and Jeter were among the few superstar athletes who managed to have a "normal" image, in the sense that you had the impression that they treated their sport like a job, one that they worked hard at, and not as some kind of blessing from God that exempted them from normal rules. So... now it's down to Jeter.

    who cares about Tiger's behaviour - I don't, if the sponsors deem what he did something they don't want to represent then they stop using him. What he did was not illegal (ala Phelps) but immoral.

    Every sponsor out there takes a chance that there arent skeleton's in the closet of those they decide to endorse their product. I highly doubt this will affect any of his current endorsements. jmo

    I surprised that other people are surprised by this.

    Re: The View

    The View is just coming on here and I am almost forced to watch it because our other stations are out due to our winter storm.

    BW is going to talk about her "special" show with those 10 most whatever people.

    I personally do NOT think of Glenn Beck as "fascinating" or anything even clsoe to that. But apparently BW does...

    BTW--BW just said that the woman who was rushed to the hospital from Tiger's house has been released from the hospital.

    (BTW--I don't really think I'm being "forced" to watch The View--I am working from home right now and need some white noise and the tv usually works the best for background. BW however does not.)

    I can't wait until this BW special is over. I can't think of anything more boring. Thank goodness for my DVR!

    Does anyone else think that, when Lady GaGa dressed like Barbara during her interview, it wasn't to emulate her because she "admires her so much," but rather, that she was making fun of her?

    I admit that that thought crossed my mind when I saw them together.

    When they were walking together and when they were sitting side by side I even thought that Lady G was trying to imitate BW's movements and demeanor.

    Did you get that impression?

    That's exactly the impression I got. Now, I've only seen clips of it, didn't actually watch the special, but my impression was that Lady GaGa was mocking Barbara. Sort of a laughing behind her back sort of thing.

    it wasn't a mocking, but an homage.
