I’m kind of annoyed by this clown’s recent quote when asked his preference on Red Wings or Penguins for the Stanley Cup. His response was:
“I don’t think anybody really watches hockey any more.”
Allow me to translate:
“I play a sport in which people carry my clubs for me. My practices consist of swinging a long skinny club at a tiny ball. But somehow people line up to watch me ‘play’.”
Another actual quote from Tiger:
“Oh, yeah, I’ve gotten a lot of grief over that,” Woods said. “I love the sport. I love watching it, but I don’t like watching it on TV. In person it’s absolutely incredible, what they’re able to do and what they can do. TV doesn’t do justice to that. But then, a lot of sports are the same way.
“I said what I said and I was trying to be funny about it, but people didn’t perceive it that way.”
Seriously, golf may be enjoyable, and gentlemanly (in other words, a bunch of elitist pricks), but I cannot respect anything that comes out of the mouth of a multi-millionaire who made his fortune in a “sport” in which the hardest breathing is done over morning breakfast. “Oh, but they have to walk a lot”. Fuck you, my grandmother walks a lot. This doesn’t mean she’s an athlete.
Until you can take a 30+ MPH puck to the face like Ryan Malone (video), or a skate to the mouth (Dan Cleary, Game 4 I think) and continue to compete in a man’s game, go sit in the clubhouse, sip an Arnold Palmer, and shut your fucking mouth Tiger Woods.
Editorial note: I’ve been swearing a lot lately. In case you haven’t noticed…
I believe it was in the recent Sports Illustrated (with the Wings on the cover) where the author noted that Tiger’s “sport” is what real athletes do for relaxation during their off-season.
Golf is not a sport…it is a hobby.
Agreed, thanks for your comments, Wade.
Wow, what an ignorant statement. lol
Golf puts me to sleep. Especially watching it. I think driving the carts around is even more difficult (and fun!)
But to each their own, I’m not going to say no one watches it because I don’t like it.
