Lindsey Vonn ditches "Minnesota nice" and takes a shot at Tiger Woods
So much for Lindsey Vonn's "Minnesota nice." The winter Olympian and Apple Valley native couldn't resist taking a shot at golfer Tiger Woods' marital problems, after Woods ended his carefully crafted mea culpa last week for serial philandering.
While Woods appears to have bared it all for his mistresses, Vonn famously bared damned near everything for a photo spread in the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She took her Tiger shots in the pages of Time magazine, which caught up with her on a rare day off in Vancouver:
When a member of her Vonn-tourage tells her that Woods gave a few friends hugs after ending his statement, she cracks, "They're like, 'Yeah, you're awesome, you go have that sex.' " The room breaks into a laugh. Then she describes a skit she would want to perform if asked to host Saturday Night Live: picture Vonn at Woods' podium, blue backdrop and all. "There's something you don't know about me," Vonn says in a faux solemn, apologetic voice. "Tiger, you're like my idol, and I too have a sex problem." More laughter. "That would be freaking funny."
Actually, it just sounds kinda awkward. But whatever.
