Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are getting serious: gross couple?

At this point, I would ask if any pairing that Tiger Woods had was gross. It’s not about Lindsey so much as the fact that any woman who is naive enough to believe anything coming out of a man’s mouth whose history is so easily googled… I want to say “deserves,” but that’s mean, I should be magnanimous and say that no one “deserves” to get cheated on (or worse). Maybe “should have seen it coming like a freight train” is a better way to put it. Maybe Tiger has kicked the pharmaceuticals, maybe he blames all the hookers on temporary insanity which lasted up until he got so thoroughly busted, but still, how could you ever buy that excuse? There was a 21 year-old neighbor, there was a Howard Johnson’s manager, there were more than a dozen strippers, hookers and hangers-on who came out publicly, there was one hooker named Jaime and another named Jaimee for God’s sake!

But professional skier Lindsey Vonn doesn’t mind all that. She’s with Tiger now and she’s even introducing him to her family. US Weekly has a new story all about how Lindsey’s brother gave Tiger’s kids a skiing lesson, and how Lindsey took Tiger’s private jet after she suffered an injury during a recent competition. (That news came out earlier, but still):

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn may not be ready to talk about their relationship, but actions speak louder than words — and their actions say things are heating up. The womanizing golfer and Olympic skier have been linked romantically ever since November, when they were spotted hitting the slopes together in Austria, and months later, it seems they’re still going strong.

In fact, as reported in the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands Friday, the undercover twosome have even spent time with each other’s families: Vonn’s brother recently gave ski lessons to Woods’ daughter Sam, 5, and son Charlie, 4. (The divorced golfer, 37, shares custody with ex-wife Elin Nordegren.)

Another sign of the hush-hush pair’s devotion? After Vonn injured her knee in an accident during the super-G at the Alpine Ski World Championships on Feb. 5, Woods sent his private jet to Austria to fly the gold medal-winning skier home.

The couple first met at a charity event in April 2012, but things didn’t get romantic until later that fall. “Their friendship slowly turned into a relationship,” an insider tells Us.
Indeed, neither Woods nor Vonn appears to be in a rush to settle down again. Vonn, 28, finalized her divorce from fellow skier Thomas Vonn just last month, and a source says she’s not worried about moving forward with her new beau. “She is pretty carefree,” the source tells Us.

[From US Weekly]

You’d have to be “pretty carefree” to date Tiger in any capacity. I hope she’s double bagging it. Here’s the thing – I can understand, on some very base level, a woman who works as a stripper or escort getting with Tiger, even after his scandal. It makes sense for someone looking to move up in the world, who struggles to make a living and has a low sense of self worth, to still go there. Lindsey is a well known professional athlete who is rich in her own right. She may not have a private jet or millions socked away, but she’s incredibly successful and well known. I’d heard of her and have seen interviews with her before this. She must have some serious defeatist tendencies to get with Tiger. Is the minor upgrade from “rich and privileged” to “filthy rich and privileged” worth all the heartache? How would you ever trust a guy like that, or would you just try and play it off like you don’t care and hope for the best?

    Hmmm… What would hurt more: golf club upside the head or ski upside the head?

  2. brin says:

    Any couple with Tiger Woods is gross.

  3. Ali says:

    Come on. Everything Tiger did is in the open. I’m sure they are fine together. I just glad the ex-wife didn’t go back to him!

  4. PHD Gossip says:

    Just cuz she is famous doesn’t mean she doesn’t suffer from low self esteem.
    Obviously she does.

  5. bea says:

    I can see it – they’re both athletes. I bet they both like to “party”. I doubt either of them see each other as permanent.

    She’s got a great figure, but her face is kinda harsh – and it’ll only get more so as she ages…….

  6. emmie_a says:

    Maybe all that dark eyeliner is causing bad judgement — err bad vision?

  7. Agnes says:

    Gross. Like you said, hopefully she’s double-bagging it.

  8. Mary says:

    I am sure as long as she keeps her eye on the prize (tigers bank acct, private plane, yacht) she can overlook any of tigers indiscretions.

    Naughty boys need love too….

      I just can’t with TW. After revealing himself as the ugly human being he is during his sex scandal, anything he does at this point grosses me out. I wouldn’t care if he sponsored an orphanage, animal shelters or the homeless, I would simply view that as trying to correct the toxic karma he’s put out into the world.

      So, yeah- anything involving Tiger is just totallygross.

  9. Sam says:

    Didn’t she just get divorced? Maybe Tiger is just a rebound? I’d still stay away – didn’t most of his cheat women say he refused to wrap it up? His junk has the potential to be a bio-hazard.

  10. afrotastic says:

    Good luck to her. She is gonna need it. That is all.

  11. Jag says:

    I thought he was getting back with his ex-wife and had stopped dating this lady? Guess not. lol

  12. JL says:

    Of course they are serious,

    She’s serious about his money

    He’s serious about her ass.

  13. elceibeno08 says:

    I thought he was trying to get together with his ex wife. Didn’t he offer her half his money to entice her to take him back?

  14. Buckwild says:

    She’s probably thinking she “can change him” into a good man. Ugh.

  15. nofkksgiven says:

    Why should she play d!ck police with Tiger…if she enjoys his company and he can upgrade her life in some way….why not?

  16. OhDear says:

    This will not be one of her better decisions. Though maybe she can help him with his fashion sense – that SHIRT.

  17. Sweet Dee says:

    Ugh. She’s always closing down entire mountains at the ski areas where I have my season pass. It’s so annoying. Her and Shaun White. Every time we show up somewhere it’s all “[Best Mountain] shut down due to athlete training: Lindsey Vonn/Shaun White.” Like, if they put the athlete’s name on the sign, we will be so honored by their proximity that we won’t mind the crowding and lift lines while some Olympian and their mooching friends take up 15 runs when they can only actually use one at a time.

    And now Tiger F_cking Woods is going to be there too, grab-assing and gallyvanting while his kids take private lessons.

    /rant over

  18. Zorbitor says:

    That was the old Tiger. The new one doesn’t like sex much.

  19. Starlight says:

    I think they are more congruent as both are athletes. Good luck to them. Hopefully he stays put this time. I guess having his millions is not a bad idea.

  20. WOM says:

    Tiger certainly has a TYPE, doesn’t he?

  21. RobN says:

    The story makes it sound like she’s introducing him to her family, i.e. her brother, when in reality it was her brother who introduced her to Tiger (thanks, bro). Tiger has been friends with the brother for at least a couple of years; I’ve seen pictures of them together for quite some time. I’m a golfer and this gets even more coverage over on my golf sites.

    I can see them together; she’s an attention whore and we all know how he feels about whores.

  22. Ok says:

    Women will always flock to Tiger because of the lifestyle he can provide

  23. SleepyJane says:

    I might secretly, casually, date him, because he’s hot. I can’t imagine wanting anyone to know though. Good luck to her. Yikes.

  24. good_as_gold says:

    Very gross indeed.

    What is wrong with this woman? Is there a screw loose? You don’t have to answer that.

  25. Madriani's Girl says:

    She is a very rough twenty-eight.

  26. lucy2 says:

    Sorry, anyone who gets involved with him is an idiot.

  27. Onyx XV says:

    She looks like a budget version of his ex.

  28. sauvage says:

    I know I should feel sympathy for a woman who so obviously has such big self esteem issues, but SCREW THAT:

    How dumb can one be?

  29. giselle says:

    I think they’re just having fun and seeing where it goes. Introducing to the family doesn’t mean as much for some people as it does to others.

  30. cruiz2 says:

    She looks cheap! He’s a jerk, so maybe a match in heaven.

  31. Claudia says:

    She looks like Brooke Mueller.

  32. Shtegara says:

    what you can expect in your 2013 Lindsey :?
