The Prattle of the Bulge
By Stephanie Wei under General

As you’ve probably heard, Tiger Woods withdrew from The Players Championship because of a neck injury. After he hit his second shot on the seventh hole, he picked up and told an official he might have a “bulging disc” that has been bothering him before The Masters (maybe crashing his car into a tree tweaked it?).

The Golf Channel’s Win McMurray had an unfortunate (but hilarious) Freudian slip and called the injury a “bulging dick.” Whoops!

ESPN’s Steve Levy made a similar blooper in 1995 when reporting Maurice Hurst was out with a bulging disc. Listen to co-anchor Keith Olbermann crack up in the background.
