As you heard on Monday, Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are officially a couple. Tiger, the 14-time major winner and tip of the professional athlete summit, announced on his Facebook page that he was dating Vonn, a former gold medal winner in the Winter Olympics and while the two seem obsessed with each other in those pictures, that hasn't always been the case.
Geoff Shackelford dug up this Time Magazine article from three years ago titled, "Lindsey Vonn Makes Fun of Tiger Woods Too!" The article was accompanied by this quote, that shows it wasn't just golf writer, bloggers and fans that had a little fun when Woods came on that stage years ago to give us his statement about what exactly happened in his personal life.
And like millions of Americans, Vonn can't help poking fun at Woods' staged event. 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."
I guess it isn't true love unless you can laugh at your partner, and hey, time does heal, right?
Also true love is waiting in the car while Woods and his ex-wife Elin Nordegren attend daughter Sam's soccer game. That's what Vonn did following the couple's dating announcement, according to E! News.
