Oh, Monty!

Oh, Monty!

On Friday at the BMW PGA Championship, America’s favorite Scot, Colin Montgomerie, chimed in on the Tiger Woods-Sergio Garcia spat, particularly in reference to Sergio’s “fried chicken” remark and European Tour CEO George O’Grady’s “colored athletes” comment while he was trying to defend Garcia.

Naturally, Monty came to the defense of Sergio and O’Grady, saying the whole thing had been blown out of proportion and suggested players would now be scared to talk to the press because you have to be just *so* PC.

Oh.

Oh, boy, you’re up, Finchem.

OH MY GOD. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.

I wish this was an SNL skit or Onion parody, but unfortunately this actually happened: European Tour Commissioner George O’Grady was trying to defend the now notorious remark Sergio Garcia made on Tuesday at an awards dinner — that he’d serve Tiger Woods “fried chicken — when he uttered his own racially insensitive phrase.

Apparently I’m an idiot and need to learn how to copy and paste properly. Thanks to the astute reader who pointed out that I tweeted the incorrect link.

Well, most of you properly missed the Hangout, but good news is you can watch it now. Bad news is I ramble. God, these things are awkward when you’re multitasking!

Thanks everyone for all the questions on the Tiger vs. Sergio saga, which went from being amusing to just bad after Sergio made a racist remark. I’m pretty much done with it, but I have a feeling this is not going to be the last we hear of the incident.

Sergio loses another round

Sergio loses another round

The Tiger Woods/Sergio Garcia feud — which doesn’t just date back to The Incident at The Players Championship, rather it has a long history spanning over more than a decade of bad blood– was an amusing and relatively trivial soap opera until it turned ugly on Tuesday night.

At the European Tour players’ awards dinner in England, Golf Channel’s Steve Sands asked Sergio in jest if he would have Tiger over for dinner at the U.S. Open. The Spaniard responded, “We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.”

Ugh. No. Just no. That comment will no doubt haunt Sergio for the rest of his career.

WTF Sergio??

WTF Sergio??

Oh boy, the Sergio Garcia vs. Tiger Woods spat continued on Tuesday night, but this time Sergio really stuck his foot in his mouth. He went out of bounds. Not good. He pulled a Fuzzy Zoeller, except worse because he should’ve learned from Fuzzy that you don’t go there. Never. Ever.
