Woods Says He Is Proud Of
His Foundation Helping Kids
BROWN WAY OFF BASE: In DC, Michael Wilbon defends Woods, calling many of Brown’s remarks against the golfer “dead wrong." Woods has "committed millions of dollars, some of the money raised and some of it donated out of his own pocket, to enriching the lives of kids who couldn't possibly find the help elsewhere." Woods is "too sophisticated a man to get into a public back-and-forth" with Brown. When asked if it is "possible that a conversation with Jim Brown might be productive," Woods said, "That depends on whether both parties show up open minded." Wilbon: "One would hope that actual facts will open Brown's mind to the efforts of a young man who doesn't share the same personal history, but shares the belief that actions speak louder than words" (WASHINGTON POST, 7/1). ESPN Radio's Mike Greenberg: "The world that Jim Brown lived most of his life in is different than the one Tiger Woods lives his life in and so I think that's where the disconnect is" ("Mike & Mike in the Morning," ESPN2, 7/1).
