I’m constantly amazed at the lack of self awareness in professional sports. If it’s not someone shooting themselves in the leg at a nightclub, you can always count on the old “made up a fake girlfriend to win a Heisman and then pretended it was a vicious hoax” routine. (Note: I’m a huge ND fan, but c’mon, bro!)
Even with the constant barrage of ridiculousness these athletes throw at us, there is one type of party foul that shocks me more than the rest. Sergio Garcia was a shining example of that this past week when he was asked if he would have Tiger Woods over for dinner during the US Open. Now, Sergio could have answered with any number of hilarious one liners, including but not limited to cheating on your spouse and whining. In fact, a Momma joke would have been funnier than this classy response from Mr. Garcia:
“We’ll have him ’round every night. We will serve fried chicken.”
