Tiger and Forgiveness

Posted on February 20, 2010 | By Robby White

Tiger Woods has publicly confessed of wrongdoing and asked for forgiveness. The commentary provided on his press conference has ranged from harsh to accusations of insincerity.

“Somebody has a case of the muuunnnn-days” I decided to complete the homework assignment that Robby gave on Sunday morning, even against my lazy instincts. Read the book of Ecclesiastes he said.
