Hey.  Take a look at this:

Now, I like Tiger Woods.  I'm more of a Phil Mickelson fan, but Mr Woods and his accomplishments have always been impressive.  With all the recent news of his many affairs and such, I found I wasn't overly interested in peering into golf's most famous son's personal life.  This, however, interests me.

What makes the above clip so interesting and refreshing?

Responsibility and ownership.  Think - when was the last time someone in the public eye - celebrity or politician - actually took responsibility for his or her actions?

In a world where the words "It was entirely my fault" spill from the lips of superstars, I think anything is possible.
