Just when it seemed the Tiger Woods story is petering out, Washington Redskins running back (and somehow single) Clinton Portis joins the party. Dan Steinberg of the WASHINGTON POST’s DC Sports BOG transcribes Portis’ delightfully honest comments about Woods’ alleged affairs on ESPN 980 in The District:
(Surprisingly, Portis offered Tiger no advice on disguise)
“If he could keep that a secret and ain’t nobody came out and told [on him], hey, congratulate him. You know, most of the time there’s one or two, and you can’t keep that a secret.
So if he can balance 14 and keep it a secret, congrats. You know, at least he knows what he wants. He don’t discriminate, he’s not against people, he don’t care what your job, what your background is….He knew what he was after.”
Best part: ESPN 980 Show host and former Georgetown Coach John Thompson agreed with Portis.
I’m honestly starting to think that the concept of athlete endorsers for companies will soon suffer a significant decline not only because of what Woods has done, but the unwittingly honest reax from high profile pro athletes like Portis and Brendan Haywood of the NBA’s Washington Wizards.
