It’s no secret that the dissolution of Tiger Woods‘ marriage to supermodel Elin Nordegren set off a chain of events — beginning Thanksgiving 2009 — that precipitated perhaps the hardest fall from grace an athlete has experienced since O.J. Simpson.
Moreover, given the details that came out regarding Woods and his harem of lovers — the text messages, the deception, the sheer number of women — reconciliation with Nordegren was probably never on anyone’s mind. Except Woods’, apparently.
According to the National Enquirer, the former No. 1 golfer has been desperate to win Nordegren back, and on Christmas he actually got down on one knee and formally proposed, new ring and all, to his ex-wife. But whether or not they’re actually getting back together is still up in the air.
Woods has apparently offered Nordegren a $200 million prenuptial agreement — about one-third of his net worth — but the Swedish model is holding out for a $350 million cheating clause. She won a $110 settlement in her initial divorce from Woods.
Woods and Nordegren have two children together, ages 3 and 5.

Quote of the Night
“Look, I’ve been fooled before. I believed Mark McGwire was hitting those home runs all on his own natural gifts. I believed Joe Paterno couldn’t possibly cover up something so grisly as child molestation. I bought Manti Te’o‘s girlfriend story. But those people never looked me square in the pupils and spit.”

There’s nothing quite like a good tennis meltdown. Thanks for that, Jerzy Janowicz.
