Tiger Woods And Lindsey Vonn Announce Relationship Via Facebook

Tiger Woods And Lindsey Vonn Announce Relationship Via FacebookOn Monday, Tiger Woods decided to end all of the speculation that he was dating Lindsey Vonn by releasing a few pictures of the two on Facebook and delivering the following statement:

‘Ordinary couple’

This season has been great so far and I’m happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that’s happened off the course was meeting LindseyVonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes.

‘Wasn’t a well-kept secret’

Vonn decided to make a statement of her own on her Facebook page:

I guess it wasn’t a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy. I don’t plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends. Thank you for understanding and your continued support! xo LV

For those uninitiated, Woods and Vonn, a famed alpine skier, had been linked together in a rumored romance for the past several months. Things really heated up back in February when Woods reportedly sent his private jet to pick up the injured skier from Austria, an act that screamed, “Those two are so hooking up.”

And now we can confirm that they most certainly are.

Well, does the Tiger Woods-Lindsey Vonn love team get a thumbs up from you or not? Do you think this relationship is for keeps or do we see another heartbreak looming ahead?

Danica Patrick Becomes First Woman To Win Daytona 500 Pole

Danica Patrick Becomes First Woman To Win Daytona 500 PoleA year after making her Sprint Cup Series debut in the same race, Danica Patrick will lead the field to the green flag for the Daytona 500 after qualifying on the pole during Sunday’s front row qualifying session at Daytona International Speedway.

‘First woman to win a pole position’

It wasn’t necessarily a surprise. Patrick posted the fastest speed of Saturday’s two qualifying practices and ran slightly faster during her second qualifying lap on Sunday, knocking owner and teammate Tony Stewart from the provisional pole. She’s the first woman to win a pole position in Sprint Cup Series history.

Patrick, who went out 8th of 45 drivers, had to withstand challenges from her other teammate, Ryan Newman, and Jeff Gordon, who will start alongside her on the front row. Patrick’s speed was 33 thousandths of a second faster than Gordon’s.

‘Motorsports ubiquity’

While some fans tire of all-things Danica Patrick, given her motorsports ubiquity, her qualifying effort guarantees to keep her in the spotlight for the next seven days leading up to the most famous race of the NASCAR season. However, as Patrick has garnered a lot of media attention in the recent weeks for her relationship with fellow driver and Rookie of the Year contender Ricky Stenhouse, this time, the attention will be because of her success on the track. And no matter your opinion of her, that’s a good thing.

Are you a fan of Danica Patrick? What other achievements do you think are in store for her in her next races?
