Do you think it would be a fair opinion that winning a golf tournament does not redeem someone as it doesn't at all address or have anything to do with the things people take issue with? I'm not saying you're wrong, just that I don't know that a sports win is a personal redemption.
I had to send a crow eating email to my co-worker about this.
Just this Friday he was talking about how he was 2 under or something and he "always" wins when he starts like that. To which I replied, "I'm so sick of sports media doing this on every major for Tiger, he hasn't won one in over a decade. I just don't care anymore."... or something like that
Congrats to Tiger for finally climbing the mountain again.
