I probably should be ashamed to say so, but I still can’t get enough of the Tiger Woods drama.  I’ve been known to stand in line at the supermarket browsing for the latest scoop (or made up BS, you be the judge) about the whole debacle since his little car accident turned into a major event.

In the spirit of his greatly anticipated press conference/public statement last Friday let’s talk about the most patheticaly exectued public apologies from the past year or so.

1) Governor Sanford: The hiking trip that actually wasn’t, followed by the press conference, the emails and the gracefully pissed off wife.

2) Mark McGwire: Hulk like muscles.  Single season home run leader.  Lying under oath.  Forced apology at the hands of Bob Costas.  At least it got him a job.

3) U.S. Senator Ensign: I’m a family man supporting high morals and family values.  Oh wait.

4) Blagojevich: Did he actually apologize?  Who cares.  It’s all about the hair.

5) New York State Government: New Yorkers are still waiting for the apology.  In the meantime we have this.

Homecoming weekend brings many alumni back to their old stomping grounds on Syracuse’s campus. Lucky for us, one of those alum happens to be Bob Costas, famous sportscaster and one-time Broadcast Journalism major in Newhouse.

Not only is Costas is a really cool speaker and an inspiration to all of those trying to break into the field of journalism, but he’s freakin’ hilarious. Check out this trailer for “BASEketball” (1998) where he made a brief yet comical appearance.

Gotta love ‘Cuse alumni.
