This Tiger Woods thing has me thinking.

Travis Rodgers (who hosts his site on SiliconANGLE infrastructure) has been posting about the Tiger controversy over the past few days.  It’s the most popular stuff he’s done since the World Series, sadly.

Something he said in his post today got to me, though:

EVERYONE goes down. Clinton, Kennedy, Jordan, they all got busted. If you are famous and you have women on the side, it is only a matter of time. Just because you can stripe a 3-iron 245 yards doesn’t mean that the women you roll with are going to stay quiet. They won’t. And even if they do, all it takes is one voice mail, one sextext, one cell phone pic and the whole thing can come crashing down.

What is it about success and cheating?

Did these folks marry for the wrong reasons? Aside from Jordan and Woods, both of who I’d consider to be classy superstars, there was also the shocking admissions from Bill Cosby and David Letterman.

It leaves me wondering if I’m the only guy in the world who married the woman he wants to sleep with.

It’s not like I haven’t had opportunities to cheat – everyone has, I imagine. And I’m not putting myself up on some crazy pedestal, either.  I realize I’ve only been married a few years – will I suddenly be gripped by an uncontrollable urge to stray several years down the road?

That thought bothers me.  It bothers me because it’s unimaginable to me, and it’s irritating to see so much of our popular culture revolve around sexual scandal.
