As you might imagine, the subject of Tiger Woods is difficult for any celebrity-athlete to address right now.

And so it was that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady walked tepidly when he was asked about what life in such an icon's shoes is like.

"Everyone’s situation is different," Brady said. "Things happen in people’s lives. I’ll just wish everybody the best. Everybody needs to find their own way, find their own happiness. We’re all …

Brady paused, then continued, "I think everybody in this room has some degree of notoriety. You have to understand what comes along with that and try to make the best decisions you can."

The Patriots QB, of course, has some understanding of the spotlight that Woods is under. The difference might be that Brady can walk the streets of London or Paris, and go unnoticed. Woods probably can't.

Here's about the only list I could find of the Top 10 most famous athletes in the world ... "Kornheiser's Cartel" has Woods, David Beckham, Ronaldinho, Yao Ming, Roger Federer, Usain Bolt, Kaka, Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry and Lance Armstrong. I'd argue maybe LeBron or Kobe should be on that list, but maybe that's me.
