Found March 20, 2013 on The Other Paper:
Tiger Woods went public with the sports world's worst kept secret that he was dating Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn on Tuesday to discourage paparazzi looking to make a big buck. The new high-powered sports couple — Woodsey to some — simultaneously posted messages on their Facebook pages yesterday announcing that they were indeed a couple and dating. Woods included four studio photos of the himself and Vonn smiling like they getting headshots for a Crest audition. Woods says being chased by photographers presented a danger to his two children. He believes that by publishing his own pictures of him and his new girlfriend it would deter the paparazzi — who Woods called "stalkarazzi" — from hovering around the couple and trying to get that million-dollar shot.  By releasing his own pictures, the paps would not be able to make as much money on the photos and would likely make it more worthwhile to chase other celebrities. A pretty good idea with the PGA tour ready to start as well. Woods announcement was the first confirmation from him that the two were dating although photos of Vonn being flown back to U.S. from Austria in his private jet after her skiing accident last month and shots of her boarding Woods' yacht last week have been circulating. It is Woods' first announcement of a relationship since his wife divorced him in 2010.

Rose takes early lead at Bay Hill

Justin Rose started out as another guy in Tiger Woods' group Thursday at Bay Hill. He wound up in the lead. Rose put on a clinic with the putter and ran off four straight birdies late in his round of 7-under-par 65. That gave him a four-shot lead in the Arnold Palmer Invitational among those PGA Tour pros who played early in a chilly breeze. Woods had two sloppy bogeys from...

She made a play for Tim Tebow and she seems to be a bit of an attention *****, who doesn’t mind the media spotlight.  I am not saying people can’t change their perception of a person, but here is what she had...
