PLAYERS: Tiger Woods
It was the joke that went too far. Before Sergio Garcia’s racial comment, the media battle between Tiger Woods and Garcia was almost comical. They were going back and forth taking shots at each other. Woods called Garcia a whiner and Garcia responded by telling the media, “That’s probably right,” and he went on to say “It’s also probably the first thing he’s (Woods) told you guys that’s true in 15 years. I know what he is like. You guys are finding out.” Now while those comments were a little harsh, it still remained a silly argument. That all changed when Garcia made one comment. At the European Tour Awards dinner Garcia was asked if he would be inviting Woods over for dinner during the U.S. Open. Garcia’s response went too far. Garcia said, “We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.” For those of you that do not know, eating chicken or fried chicken is a racial stereotype put on African Americans. The response by Garcia was too much and completely unnecessary.
