Lindsey Vonn on Tiger Woods: “Yeah, you’re awesome, you go have that sex”

The words are sarcastic in connotation, as were her next words: “Tiger, you’re like my idol, and I too have a sex problem”.

Olympic medalist and World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn reportedly said these words to her entourage last Friday after being told Tiger Woods received hugs from supporters after delivering his carefully crafted apology speech.  At the USA House (a space rented by the U.S. Olympic Committee for its athletes, staff, sponsors, families, and other supporters to congregate during the Games), Lindsey spewed some Tiger Woods jokes, including this first line after she was told about the post-apology hugs: “They’re like, ‘Yeah, you’re awesome, you go have that sex’”.

Lindsey then imagined how funny a Saturday Night Live sketch would be with her pretending to deliver an apology like Tiger did. She already has the script written out: “There’s something you don’t know about me. Tiger, you’re like my idol, and I too have a sex problem”.

The journalist who broke this story, Time.com’s Sean Gregory, said that Lindsey’s comments were not off the record.
