A Tiger Story

December 2, 2009

The gossip sites are going crazy. Why? Another megastar has crashed back to earth, or so they think. By now you probably have heard about Tiger Woods ramming his SUV into a tree and a fire hydrant sometime around two in the morning.

You've probably also heard that his wife took a golf club to the SUV's window to free her husband. Rumors are swirling everywhere that Tiger's mad 2 a.m. dash, and subsequent facial injuries, had to do with his wife's anger after hearing that he'd been linked to two other women--one of whom claims to have evidence proving a relationship.

What else is new, right? "Stars" are constantly doing crazy stuff to get attention, but in this case, Tiger and his wife probably didn't want this kind of attention. In fact, Tiger has spent years carefully cultivating a clean image because he wants to be seen as a good person, and because he wants to rake in a bazillion dollars through endorsements. He is the most carefully packaged sports star in the history of sport, and that's saying quite a bit.

But now, his reputation is torn and tattered by the allegations and rumors surrounding the accident and his alleged marital infidelity.

The Bible has a lot to say about the importance of one's reputation. King Solomon, a man who had a great reputation then lost it, wrote: "A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold" (Proverbs 22:1, NIV).  Solomon knew what it felt like to be "dogged" by the TMZs of his day. Here are two questions for you.

What do you do when people say bad things about you--whether they are true or false? What advice would you give Tiger on how to restore his reputation?
