If You Can't Beat 'Em, Hang 'Em

If anyone out there is an aspiring announcer, here's a quick tip. If you're setting up the keys to a game for an underdog, you can mention cliches like "bring their A game," "turn up the intensity," or "leave everything out on the field." What you might want to avoid, however, is advocating mob violence reminiscent of the Ku Klux Klan. Apparently, Golf Channel anchor Kelly Tilghman did not get the memo:

Golf Channel anchor Kelly Tilghman has apologized after saying during Friday's telecast of the PGA Tour's opening event that today's young players should "lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley."

A spokesman for the network said Tilghman apologized on Sunday's telecast and has reached out to Woods' representatives to express her regrets for the comments, according to New York Newsday.

To be fair, Kelly Tilghman was a golfer at Duke University, where I'm pretty sure that lynching is the standard hazing practice for any black student that dares join the athletic department.

Meanwhile, it's expected that Tiger Woods will accept her apology as only a third of him was offended by the remark.

If you think Kelly Tilghman is a RACIST, show it by voting!

I believe only one-quarter of Tiger was offended. Mom (100% Thai) + Dad (50% Black, 25% Chinese, & 25% Native American). In fact 62.5% of Tiger is really good at math.
