Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods “met through the ski community, because Tiger is an active skier. Lindsey has been teaching Tiger’s kids Sam and Charlie how to ski,” a source close to Vonn said, according to the LA Times.
A source in the Woods camp added that even though Woods and Vonn are often on separate continents, “they constantly talk on the phone. And Tiger has made more of a commitment to Lindsey lately — he’s pulling out all the stops.”
Vonn had joked at the time about Woods after his famous apology press conference in 2009 following his sordid sex scandal, when he was hugged by friends:
“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,” (via Time.com)
We guess dating is like skiing. You can wipe out and look stupid, but it’s all about getting back up the hill.
