Tiger Woods received a special invitation to speak at the inauguration. His

inviters were stunned, shocked when he did not deliver the message they

expected.. A brief read and you will understand why the media swept Woods'

remarks under the rug with no further ado and why the liberal left of our

American society was again displeased with Tiger.


His speech was entitled:


"You'll Never Walk Alone"


[text is word-for-word as posted on Tiger's web site]


"I grew up in a military family - and my role models in life were my Mom and

Dad, Lt. Colonel Earl Woods. My dad was a Special Forces operator and many

nights friends would visit our home. They represented every branch of the

service, and every rank.


In my Dad, and in those guests, I saw first hand the dedication and commitment

of those who serve. They come from every walk of life; from every part of our

country. Time and again, across generations, they have defended our safety in

the dark of night and far from home..


Each day -- and particularly on this historic day -- we honor the men and women

in uniform who serve our country and protect our freedom. They travel to the

dangerous corners of the world, and we must remember that for every person who

is in uniform, there are families who wait for them to come home safely.


I am honored that the military is such an important part, not just of my

personal life, but of my professional one as well. The golf tournament we do

each year here in Washington is a testament to those unsung heroes.


I am the son of a man who dedicated his life to his country, family and the

military, and I am a better person for it.


In the summer of 1864, Abraham Lincoln, the man at whose memorial we stand,

spoke to the 164th Ohio Regiment and said: 'I am greatly obliged to you, and to

all who have come forward at the call of their country.'


Just as they have stood tall for our country - we must always stand by and

support the men and women in uniform and their families.


Thank you, and it is now my pleasure to introduce the US Naval Glee Club ..."




Tiger Woods' 2-minute, 5-second tribute to the our nation's military was

delivered January 18th at the Inaugural Celebration in Washington , He had

been subjected to intense pressure to attend and offer remarks. Especially

so by liberals who have demeaned and criticized him for a decade for not joining

their ranks.. Yet, at the Lincoln Memorial, instead of paying homage to

Barack Obama, Tiger paid tribute to our soldiers. Not once did Tiger mention

Obama, the inauguration or the new administration. He had to understand

expressing his love for America and appreciation for our military men and women

would disappoint the national news media and the liberal left. But Tiger is

his own man; his father taught him to be his own man..


Somewhere over that cold, gray Washington sky, Colonel Earl Woods was smiling

down on his beloved son. And there will be one more crying hug waiting for

Tiger when the time comes he passes through heaven's gates into God's arms.




What? You did not previously know what Tiger said? You did not see a video

clip of him speaking on a national television network, you did not see a photo

of Tiger at the Lincoln Memorial offering his remarks, you did not read a story

in the NY Times? His appearance at the Inaugural Celebration had been

widely hailed and promoted in advance by the Obama inaugural organizers . . .

yet January 18 when he came and spoke . .. ..


Oh, well.
