Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn, sports newest and most powerful power couple, made a splash on Monday night, making their first public appearance as a couple at the annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. While this is a bold and important step in the couple’s budding relationship, some gossip emerging from the evening’s festivities after the gala may not be the kind of publicity Tiger and Lindsey would prefer to get out about their glitzy and high-profile date night. According to some onlookers, Tiger Woods appeared to be a bit on the tipsy side at an after party at the Boom Boom Room, a destination located on top of the Standard Hotel. In fact, some might argue that he was more than tipsy. He was trashed. Schnockered. Three sheets to the wind. Wasted. Blotto. And so on and so forth. Via US Magazine, the go-to source for the best in hard-hitting sports journalism: “Tiger looked uncomfortable,” an onlooker at the Boom Boom Room says. The twosome checked out the Manhattan skyline (with a tux-clad Woods embracing Vonn from behind) and then took their seats, where they chatted, drank, held hands and kissed for much the night. At one point in the evening, the once-divorced golfer got up to dance awkwardly, bopping from side to side and grabbing Vonn’s butt affectionately as she giggled. Oh, Tiger! That cad! But thank goodness he grabbed Vonn’s butt “affectionately,” although how else does one grab their significant other’s backside? With authority? But it’s afterward where the scene allegedly got a little on the sloppy slide: When it was time to go, around 2 a.m., a seemingly tipsy Woods fell while walking up a small flight of stairs — and didn’t move from the spot until Vonn, clenching her teeth and looking embarrassed, helped him up and guided him (swaying a bit as he walked) to the exit, according to a witness. Oh dear. That sounds like an ugly scene right there. A photo courtesy of Lindsey Vonn’s Facebook page of the couple posing for a “selfie” appears to indicate that Tiger may been doing a bit of boozing at some point in the evening. You know, sucking back on grandpa’s old cough medicine? While it’s hard to say for certain, judge for yourself: Hoo boy. But as Business Insider reports, Tiger Woods may have been down, but he wasn’t down for long, as a Twitter account @GCTigerTracker, places him at TPC Sawgrass in Florida on Tuesday morning. What a warrior. He must have caught the red-eye. But looking at that photo, the red eye part was already covered. And to further add compelling evidence that Tiger was ‘faced, here’s a sampling of several photos located at The Superficial: Click to view slideshow. Hoo boy.It sure looks like Tiger may have tipped back a few too many “flop shots,” in my opinion. BAM! And Lindsey looks positively thrilled in a few of those pics. Wow.
