Ryan Longwell Hit by Shrapnel from Tiger Woods Explosion


It must be awesome being acquaintances with Tiger Woods…until Tiger’s life blows up and you start getting peppered with debris.

Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell has now seen both sides of the Tiger Woods connection equation.  He’s basked in the glow of being on the fringes of Tiger’s circle, and he’s found out how bad it can suck when Tiger does something naughty and people start shoving microphones in your face to get your take on it.

Unfortunately for Longwell, even his family shall not be spared from the Tiger blowback.

In a video posted on Yahoo’s Shutdown Corner, Longwell discusses the craziness his wife and kids have experienced back in the gated Florida community both the Woodses and Longwells call home.

“My wife is a blonde that wears sunglasses in Florida,” Longwell explains.  “So every time she comes out of the gates they’re snapping pictures.”

My advice to Mrs. Longwell?  Go brunette.  At least until the paparazzi are off Elin-watch.  Which should happen some time shortly after the $300 million divorce.
