At first glance, footballer Wayne Rooney and golfer Tiger Woods may not seem to have that much in common, but their recent excursions into the dark and gloomy world of prostitution show that the old adage still rings true, and that two great minds do, indeed, think alike.
Woods recently formalised his divorce from wife Elin Nordegren after a succession of visits to ladies of the night, and Rooney now looks to be going down the same route after first shagging a woman old enough to be his grandma, and then embarking on a mission to bang every hooker in Manchester by Christmas.
Rooney has a vicious temper, whereas Woods has a laid-back manner, but there the differences end.
Both stars are at the top of their respective games, and it will come as no surprise to sports psychotherapists to learn that both are extremely determined individuals who will stop at nothing to achieve their goals in life.
That extreme determination has already checked the progress of Woods, and it remains to be seen what will become of Rooney.
