I don't remember ever hearing you talk about Tiger Woods, but I tend to tune out when people talk sports so I can't swear to it.
I agree that it would be good to have more adults in fandom in general and fanfic (both writing and critiquing) in particular. I don't know that the public face is where we'll get them, though. It can't *hurt* to have a more public presence (and I think that OTW is a good step along that way) but I think that adults in fandom will continue to join in the two ways they have been:
- they were teens or young adults in fandom and they grew up (like you)
- they stumbled across it and liked it as adults (like me)
