Vonn: Interest in Tiger and me is 'intrusive' and 'weird'

Posted at 10:42 AM by Josh Sens | Categories: Lindsey Vonn, Tiger Woods

Imagine a world without paparazzi and a press corp driven by prurient interests.

On the up side, Kim Kardashian would instantly dematerialize.

On the downside, that would leave us to talk about today’s practice round at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Mem . .akl4%8!asdf;lj1 . . . .sorry, nodded off at the keyboard.

Luckily, we have Lindsey Vonn, who earlier this week, at the Fashion Designers of America awards in New York, was asked about her new life in the public eye that began when she started dating Tiger Woods.

Vonn said she found the focus on her and Tiger “intrusive” and “weird.”

In the standard news cycle, such well-reasoned insights would usually prompt a period of media self-reflection and high-minded hand-wringing over a culture gone awry.

But we’ll leave that to the eggheads as we wait for the start of the U.S. Open.

Meantime, let the shallow commentary about Vonn’s low-cut ivory dress begin.
