Last week, Tiger Woods was described by girlfriend Lindsey Vonn as dorky-goofy. Vonn then immediately told Katie Couric that Tiger would probably not be too excited that she said that.
In an interview with CNN's Rachel Nichols, Tiger somewhat agreed with Vonn's assessment, however stopped short of calling himself a dork, but rather referred to himself as a nerd, instead.
“I guess so. My teammates used to call me Urkel back in college. Yeah, I do have that little nerdy of side of me. That’s probably why I got into Stanford.”
Anyone who has lived through the 21st century knows that being a nerd is no longer considered uncool. In fact, being labeled as a nerd has become a term of endearment in some ways. We can thank the trend of NBA players like Russell Westbrook and Dwight Howard wearing black, oversized, square glasses during interviews for this trend.
But to call someone a dork? Well, that's just way more insulting.
