How can they be offended?

Poor Tiger. Seems like the guy can't get a break. He finally gets some good news today when he was named the AP golfer of the decade or something like that. I don't know the exact title.

Thing is, there is a group of people outraged by this, saying that he isn't deserving of it. First of all, the award is for what he did on the golf course for the past 10 years, and you can't deny that Woods has been anything but dominant out there on the green. As a matter of fact, if he wasn't, these media yahoos wouldn't have anything to talk about for the past couple of weeks. It's kinda like the O.J. situation, regardless of whether he did or didn't murder his wife, you can't deny what he did on the field. Same goes for Michael Vick before he went to prison, or anyone else that has had issues off the field.

Second, how can anyone be offended by this. Someone on the radio said it best, there must be this group of people that just sit around getting offended at things, like "Oooh! Obama has two daughters. I'm offended he doesn't have any sons" or "That Christmas tree doesn't have enough decorations on it". You know stupid stuff like that. This is what this seems like to me. More of that witch hunt mentality.

What are your thoughts?

He is an incredible golfer and deserving of the award. But I still think Michael Vick should have been eaten by a dog. :-)
