AUGUSTA, GA-- It's now been almost five months since the shocking news out of Florida concerning professional golfer Tiger Woods, a clean-shaven, trim young man who doesn't look like he would have serial extra-marital affairs.
Woods, 34, was widely portrayed as being faithful to his wife because he didn't look slovenly, had no visible tattoos and was not thought to have a drug or alcohol problem like fellow golfer John Daly.
"I'm just so shocked," said one naive fan of Woods. "Not since Steve Garvey or maybe John F. Kennedy has someone looked so faithful and turned out to be so unfaithful."
News coverage of the golf star has quadrupled since the revelation of infidelity and shows no signs of abating.
"In a perfect world," said one social scientist attempting to find a reason for the purient interest, "we'd be more interested in the athlete who stays faithful to his wife rather than the athlete who doesn't. What is it about us that makes vice more interesting than virtue?"
