When and how does Tiger story end?

Another day, another rumor.

When and how does the Tiger Woods story end?

On Oprah? That's one rumor. But there are hundreds of rumors, far more of them than facts.

While Woods created the firestorm in which he's now caught, it just keeps burning. When Nancy Grace gets involved, you know it's crossed into a different dimension. When John Daly is piping in with offers of help, it's jumped the shark.

Maybe Tiger doesn't face the public until he shows up at Torrey Pines in late January to start his 2010 PGA Tour season. That's when his caddie, Steve Williams, said he expects Tiger to play again.

On one hand, it's hard to believe he'll let this story continue to spiral out of his control without saying something. Someone dug up Tiger's quote about the Michael Vick situation a few years ago where he suggested Vick needed to get out in front of the story.

On the other hand, it's not like Tiger to go public with private matters. He's done it already with his statement last week. That may be all we get from him.

The only thing for sure is the story isn't going away any time soon.

It will begin to end when Tiger and Elin come to a private resolution. Publicly, it will be when he puts himself in front of the cameras and puts some feeling behind what may or may not have been his words of contrition on his website. It will continue if he can manage a win in Augusta on April 11. But it will likely never really end.
