It Took A While, But Michigan Decides That Fried Chicken Jokes Are Bad

On May 24, radio host and University of Michigan football announcer Frank Beckmann decided to take to The Detroit News to weigh in on Sergio Garcia's "fried chicken" comments about Tiger Woods. This didn't prove wise, because Beckmann came off as dumb, insensitive, and/or racist, which are generally bad things to be when … » 5/30/13 10:47pm 5/30/13 10:47pm

Sergio Garcia Makes Tiger Woods "Fried Chicken" Joke, Apologizes

For over a week now, we've had to talk about this weak golf "feud" between Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods which started in 1999 and got heated, or at least slightly warm, a week and a half ago. Garcia hit a terrible shot on a par-5 second hole at The Players Championship, and blamed Woods for the miss, since Woods was… » 5/21/13 11:38pm 5/21/13 11:38pm

The Tiger Woods-Sergio Garcia Slapfight Continues

Golf's longest-running feud reached new levels of cattiness on Monday. Recall earlier this month, when Sergio Garcia rekindled some old animosity when he blamed Tiger Woods for his errant shot on the second hole of The Player's Championship, an accusation that elicited a someone-get-this-baby-a-bottle response from… » 5/21/13 1:15pm 5/21/13 1:15pm

Sergio Garcia Stirs Up The Ghosts And The Water

There's no shame in splashing short of TPC Sawgrass's iconic 17th, as Sergio Garcia did yesterday (twice!). Better players have found the drink in the past, and will in the future.

Sergio Garcia Just Climbed Into A Tree Like A Monkey And Hit A…

When Sergio's Garcia errant shot got caught in a big ass tree today at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he was basically screwed. The only thing he could've done was climb up that big ass tree after it, because you have to play the ball as it lies.

The U.S. Rolls Over And Europe Roars Back To Win The Ryder Cup

Oh, fuck! The European team just stole the Ryder Cup despite beginning the day well behind on points to the U.S. team. Three Americans lost both 17 and 18 (the U.S. went 0/7 on the 17th hole), the 10-6 lead the U.S. came in with today was not safe, and Gene Wojciechowski's "Ryder Cup all but locked up for U.S." column… » 9/30/12 6:40pm 9/30/12 6:40pm

Sergio Garcia's Mind, It Likes To Wander


Have we picked on Sergio Garcia enough this weekend? Indeed we have, but just as you can never have enough bacon, you can never try hard enough to destroy the psyche of an athlete whose sport is 90 percent mental. But maybe we don't need to do any of the work. The Sports Elitists recounts a Sergio Garcia story from… » 8/12/07 12:20pm 8/12/07 12:20pm
