Since his car crash in February, Tiger Woods has kept a rather low profile. The crash left him with substantial leg injuries, and since then, he has only made social media appearances like his congratulatory tweet at his old rival Phil Mickelson, who recently won the PGA Championship. Still, his only other public appearance was in an April photo on his Instagram profile, where he could be seen standing on crutches.
The New Photo of Tiger Woods Was Shared On Instagram By the Young Athlete Luna Perrone
Recently, a new photo of Tiger Woods surfaced through social media, but this time, it wasn’t the golfer sharing it. Instead, it was the 10-year old athlete Luna Perrone. She posted the picture on her Instagram profile. Perrone wrote that she is battling bone cancer and shared a picture of herself and Woods in a meeting at an over-the-weekend soccer game. Perrone was decked out in her soccer gear and a smiling Woods was alongside her, standing on crutches. The golfer had a compression sleeve over his injured right leg.
Tiger Woods Has Apparently Shed His Walking Boot Which Was Present In His April Photo
In the new photo, Tiger Woods appears without the walking boot he had on in the photo he posted last April. It seems that the golfer is gradually getting better. As for Luna Perrone, she has described herself as a legend, star, model, and one tough girl who is battling with Ewing’s Sarcoma. Despite having this rare type of bone cancer, the young athlete appears truly brave and has asked her followers to share her journey so she can inspire others. Certainly, befriending Tiger Woods is one good move for getting her message out.
So far, Woods’ team has not provided medical updates of any kind since the March tweet that announced he had returned to his home after being in the hospital. If his appearance in public without the walking boot is any indication, Woods’ continuing recovery at home is going well because things seem to be progressing in the right direction for him.
It seems that the New York Rangers are not particularly happy with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety because of their handling of the Tom Wilson situation. As fans know, during Monday’s game against the New York Rangers, he punched Pavel Buchnevich while on the ice. Later, Wilson pulled Artemi Panarin to the ground by his hair, and that led to an injury that will keep him out until the end of the season.
The Department Has Only Fined Tom Wilson for the Situation
Apparently, the only punishment Tom Wilson will get is a $5000 fine. However, former NHL enforcer John Scott, Rangers head coach David Quinn, and forward Mike Zibanejad reacted strongly to that move. The Rangers even took it one step further and released an official statement, expressing their disgust with the NHL over their decision to not suspend Wilson for his violence.
Tom Wilson Is a Repeat Offender and Considered a Reckless Player By Many
In their statement, The New York Rangers point out how extremely disappointed they were that Tom Wilson was not suspended. They maintain that Wilson is a repeat offender with a long history of violent acts and add that they find it shocking that the NHL’s Department of Player Safety has failed to enforce the appropriate punishment and suspend the forward. They continue to point out how Wilson’s reckless actions have caused an injury to Artemi Panarin that will not allow him to play again during the season. The team views this as a dereliction of duty by George Parros, the NHL’s head of player safety, calling him unfit to continue serving in his role.
Recently, Wilson was fined for concussing another player, and it seems he has not decided to change his ways of intentionally hurting players. While it does not seem that the Rangers will make it to the playoffs, Panarin will have to recover from an injury he shouldn’t have received in the first place, while Wilson will be allowed to play for the remainder of the season.
