‘Tiger’ Doesn’t Take Ejection Well
By Stephanie Wei under Tiger Woods

Orange alert!

Hoping to cheer on his hero Tiger Woods, mega-fan Jason Goodwin claims he was given permission ahead of time to wear a bright orange “Tiger” suit to TPC Boston last year for the Deutsche Bank Championship, but a recent lawsuit reveals the plan went awry, according to TMZ.com.

Goodwin, who says he had a valid ticket for the event, claims security escorted him off the course after the 1st hole … because Tiger’s playing partner, Angel Cabrera, complained the tiger suit was “too bright and bothersome.”

Goodwin filed a small claims lawsuit against the PGA in Boston, insisting his civil rights were “infringed upon” — and he wants $7150 to make things right.

Goodwin tells TMZ … he chose the amount because it’s the most he’s allowed to sue for in small claims court … adding, “I want to make the point that you can’t tell people what to wear.”

Calls to the PGA have not been returned.

Oh, I’d love a comment on this one!

While a grown man wearing a “Tiger” suit is a bit ridiculous, sports fans are frequently known to get overzealous with their costumes. I mean, Goodwin does have a point that he should be able to wear what he wants. And is there that big of a difference between the above-pictured costume and the infamous “Green Man”?
