Sergio Garcia made a fried chicken joke about Tiger Woods at an awards gala in England last night. When he was jokingly asked whether he'd invite Tiger over for dinner at the US Open, Sergio said, "We will have him 'round every night. We will serve fried chicken."
Bill Simmons lashed out at ESPN on Twitter last night after a joke he made on Sportscenter was later edited out. On the live Sportscenter immediately after the Heat beat the Spurs in Game 4, Simmons joked that Dwyane Wade must have gone to Germany before Game 4. But on later re-airings of the show, that Simmons comment was censored out. Simmons was not happy, tweeting:
I have been a staunch critic of the National Associaton of Realtors (NAR), their various renditions of Chief Economists, and the laughable jokes that they attempt to pass as objective analysis. What is alarming is the fact that the joke that is the NAR gets constant MSM airplay and front page print exposure - credibility be damned. For a glimpse of my real opinions on the matter, see below then reference the nuggest of truth that actually fell out of the MSM yesterday.
I was a West-Coast Carrie Bradshaw … sans Mr. Big. You wouldn’t expect it from my childhood: I’d grown up poor in Iowa, and I watched my mother struggle to work full-time and raise six kids on her own, while wishing that Prince Charming would come. (He never did.) She made ends meet using Sunday newspaper coupons, public assistance and homemade mac-and-state-issued-cheese.
No fair, “Brooks” has known me here too long and gave away the “baselines matter” punch line to yesterday’s “joke”:
“Could you loan me ten dollars but just give me five? That way you’ll owe me five, I’ll owe you five, and we’ll be even.”
