Yesterday, we received an email about Rick Reilly's latest column on America's chances in the upcoming Ryder Cup, where he gives a list of reasons as to how Paul Azinger's Tiger-less squad could actually win this year's event. It's the usual Reilly-on-golf effort (probably his strongest subject) and it's mildly entertaining if you're into that sort of thing. However, the tipster pointed out an interesting edit to the piece that occurred during the day: I don't know if this is relevant or not to you guys but ... I'm pretty sure the last line in Reilly's column this morning was "or I'll tongue bathe the Queen Mother". It has since been edited to "or I'll tongue bathe Windsor castle". Seems an oblique reference to cunnilingus was removed sometime throughout the day. Thanks to Deadspin's new "open" relationship with some of ESPN's higher-ups, we are able to get answers to these pressing questions. ESPN's official response via email was as follows: " It was removed but not for reasons you outlined ....was done because Queen Mother has been dead for years so reference doesn't make sense." Great. And just to make sure I wasn't missing anything, I did a quick Google-search for "tongue bathe" to see what popped up. It's amazing what adding an "e" to the end of that phrase does, for when you Google "tongue bathe" , the definition for "tongue bath" shows up which is...this:
1. Licking the anus and genitals (with an abundance of saliva).
So, to sum up: Rick Reilly would give the Queen Mother a rim-job. Oh, and Windsor Castle too. Life Of Reilly [ESPN]
