“They’re like, ‘Yeah, you’re awesome, you go have that sex,’” she said in reference to those who hugged Tiger after he read his prepared statement.
Upon missing the news feed on Friday, Vonn spoofed the Woods apology in an impromptu skit, staring herself, and TIME reported it:
“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.” More laughter. “That would be freaking funny.”
We’re sure the risk averse USOC isn’t seeking this type of reactive media, but it’s funny, and Vonn has kept it in the NBC family. The above is Vonn’s idea for a “Saturday Night Live” skit. If they don’t call her, she plans to pitch herself: “I’ve got to call [NBC Sports chairman] Dick Ebersol to see if SNL will have me. I have some ideas.”
