The over/under on Tiger is 1000?

I realize I'm late to the show, but I was asked if I thought Tiger Woods was a sex addict the other day. My first thought was you had to put him on a MRI machine and test. :) I said that I had no idea, but as we went along and talked more, I realized that we could guess something interesting about Tiger.

I bet, it is easier for Tiger to get a woman to sleep with him, than it is for me to buy a drink at a crowded bar. Think about it, he can walk down the street, point at a woman walking the other way and have a fairly good chance of success.

Then I started to try to figure out the Vegas odds on how many woman Tiger has slept with in the last 10 years. I figure that one, every 3 days has to be reasonable. So, about 1000 women in the last 10 years? So, the over/under bet is 1000.

It is an interesting statement about celebrity in the USA. First, you can do what Tiger did, because the women are winning to play along. You beg forgiveness. Then, if you win again, you are forgiven. I'm for forgiveness, but it is interesting to see how celebrities are the royalty of the USA. Compared to Kobe, this is pretty mild stuff.

What do you think, can you forgive Tiger? I don't think much about golf, so I don't really care one way or the other.
