I also think if I hear another person mention that Michael Vick should be the league MVP I will show up at that person's house and puke on them. Michael Vick should not have even been left back into the league after what he's done. I may have a little respect for his skills as a football player but I have no respect for him otherwise. Anyone that's willing to shoot, electrocute, and do further harm to dogs should not be allowed the luxury of owning dogs ever again and should not be allowed back into sports. Yes I know he's paid his debt to society by serving jailtime. Michael Vick spent almost 2 years in jail after he confessed to charges in his involvement with dog fighting. Michael Vick's dogs that did not perform up to his expectations were killed by electrocution, hanging, drowning and other violent and horrific means by him. He’s another perfect example of the two tiered society that America is defined as.... The rich and famous and well connected have a different set of rules apparently in our society than the rest of us where the rules we are forced to live by don't really even give us second chances at times.
We banned Pete Rose from the HOF and baseball for gambling. Yet we let Mike Vick play. Am I missing something there?

We the collective thought here at Enough Already decided to compile a list of what we felt is the top 15 "FOOLS" in 2010 who made a commotion in the sports world and in the hobby world. We will begin counting down in no particular order a character/company/item that made not only a fool of themselves but truly made us wonder, "what the hell were they thinking?"
#15: TIGER WOODS
Tiger seemed to have it all.....a hot Swedish wife, quite a few major golf titles, and lots of endorsement deals that were very profitable for him. However, Tiger also had a lot of other "side projects" that consisted of hitting his balls into more holes than anyone could begin to imagine. His "magical golf course" consisted of hitting endless "holes" with no mulligans and no penalty strokes. Reportedly over 120 holes to boast! Then there was the SUV accident involving him and his wife. Then all of the "lady lions" started coming out of the jungle claiming to be tamed by this "big' ol Tiger".
Long story short: Hit his balls into one to many sand traps and was not given any mulligans and received a multiple penalty stroke!
Outcome: about $90 million lighter in his wallet thanks to the former "Mrs. Woods".
Highlights of foolishness: Was a "guest" on SOUTHPARK. Gatorade drop his endorsements. Gillette had suspended any advertising with him on their products. AT&T dropped him like a dropped call. Golf Digest canceled articles on him. He took the neighbor's 21 yr old daughter and showed her how to use his "1 wood" club. Then there was the bogus "no questions allowed while I read this prepared statement that was written for me by someone else" interview.
We hope that Tiger can turn things around for the better. Perhaps in 2011 he can regain his old form on the golf course and even turn his life around for the better and make better decisions. However he needs to focus on two things more than anything: His children and his Golf game. Let everything else go.

On my 10th birthday my parents divorced and my Father chose to leave me out of his life. He paid hardly anything in child support and chose to leave at the worse of times. So I had lived with my mother who had Cancer at the time and I chose to help her since my Father wouldn't. My mother could not work a full time job due to her illness. I know what it's like seeing the opening up of Christmas gifts of others and yet knowing it was ok that my mother did not get me anything because she couldn't and I understood but yet she felt so horrible about it. Between Mom going back and forth for chemo treatments and holding my mother's head in my hands at time because she was puking so much I kind of never got to do most things kid did. I had to be an adult at a young age. My mother is a cancer survivor but she is also Diabetic. She has lost her right leg from the knee down due to infection and just recently had half of her right middle finger removed due to infection settling into the bone. This is another reason why I have listed as giving a donation to Cancer Research or Diabetes research.
I know what it's like to be at the bottom of the barrel. I know what it's like to have nothing. Am I angry? No. Am I sad? Yes. I'm sad because someone would think that giving to someone else would be a joke. Better yet here's my thought:
To Randy & Glenn P. who so kindly wrote me: I'd be willing to bet that you two gentlemen are pack searchers. I'd be willing to bet that you would probably take a 1987 Donruss Greg Maddux rookie and sell it on Craigslist for 100.00 gem mint status. I'd be willing to bet that you when you were kids you stole money from your Mom's purse. I'd also be willing to bet that you don't wash your hands after peeing or wiping.....EVER. I'd be willing to bet that you two are the kind of idiots who praise Beckett and shun EBAY values. I'd be willing to bet that once santa finds out your address you're gonna get more than lumps of coal.
So yes the contest is very real and it is true to my heart.
