This morning, the silence was finally broken as People Magazine released their interview with Elin Nordegren, which she deemed to be her first and only interview about the terrible public scandal involving her husband's repeated infidelity.
Now, Tiger Woods has released a statement in response to her her interview. The statement reads:
"This is a very painful, personal and private time for our family. Throughout this entire time, Elin has shown unwavering concern and support for our children. She is a wonderful mother. I know that the two of us will do everything we can to help our children adjust to this new family situation.
We both cherish the time we can spend with Sam and Charlie. Whether it's taking Sam to school or hitting balls with Charlie on the range, nothing gives me more enjoyment than these simple pleasures. We have two special kids, and I'm going to enjoy every minute with them.
Personally, I am learning to balance family and golf. My children come first and always will, but I also appreciate golf more than ever. I understand how important the fans and the game are to me. I know how lucky I am to do what I do for a living, and I am deeply grateful for everyone who has supported me."
It's kind of say to think about all you've lost in exchange for a lot of cheap thrills. But you brought this pain onto yourself. We just hope Elin finds a new path in this new chapter in her life, one that doesn't involve the kind of pain you've inflicted on her.
But who really suffers are those poor kids who will have to live in the shadow of there father's shame.
