Lindsey Vonn calls Tiger Woods ‘dorky-goofy’ (video)

Nov 5, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

Lindsey Vonn had an interesting description of her boyfriend in a sitdown with Katie Couric to air Tuesday.

Couric called Tiger Woods an “enigma” and asked Vonn what he’s like as a person.

“He’s funny,” Vonn said. “He’s really laid back, a great guy, always making jokes, very competitive, just like me. We have very similar personalities. If there’s one thing I can say is he’s funny. He’s goofy, like dorky-goofy.

Olympic flame has gone out at least 44 times during torch relay, journalist says

“He’s probably not going to be excited that I just said that.”

As for her skiing, Vonn is expected to make her season debut in Beaver Creek, Colo., on Nov. 29. The Olympic downhill champion blew out her knee in a crash at the World Championships in Schladming, Austria, in February.

      Remember back in the old days, when the sports page (paper or web) talked about sports? You know: last-minute scores, great plays, records being set or broken? Now they talk about relationships, who so-and-so is dating, what so-and-so is wearing, people complaining how athletes make millions for throwing a ball (yet those same people stand in line to buy lotto tickets so they can get paid millions to do nothing), etc. The latest: Bullying in the NFL (Dolphins). What next?

        My guess? Guys belly-aching about nothing, rather than just moving along to something which interests them.
        Strange times.

    You just keep doing what you’ve been doing to make him “happy” and you’ll get to continue to call him your boyfriend.

    Katie Curic, Loser, isn’t there some 8 year old child, that just had her parents killed in a head on car accident yesterday that Katy could be interviewing……That’s usually her MO

    My guess is Lindsey is a smart girl, lining herself up on all the talk shows with the help of Tiger s relationship, become a house hold word, more sponsor and advertising dollars will come her way, peaking at the Olympics……its all about money for her and her boyfriend.

    Does she really think that there is any future with him? Did she not hear about what he did while married to his first wife? Reminds me of the mistress that marries a guy after he gets a divorce and then is surprised when he starts cheating on her.

      I still think the only “future” here is the publicity. He gets to mend his public image and she gets plenty of extra press leading up to the Olympics and all her endorsement opportunities. Sometime after the Olympics, they’ll part ways “still good friends” having dated over a year but having spent only a few days together between his golf and her recovery/skiing.

      Birds of a feather cheat together?

    Lot of haters out there today.

    It’ll only be a matter of time till Lindsey learns to swing a golf club…
