shame on tiger

Well... at least he didn't use the dreaded n-word. But a disappointed Tiger Woods DID open his mouth and let something politically-incorrect fly out of his neck after a frustrating final round at The Masters last week. He said that he putted "like a spaz."

Ohmygawd! The delicate sensibility brigade didn't take long to form ranks and bleat about THAT insensitive remark. It was insulting to every spaz differently-abled person on the planet. How DARE Tiger say such a thing?

If Tiger had said, "I was so in control from tee to green, the best I've played for years... But as soon as I got on the green I was a complete fucktard," would all the fucktards of the world be jumping up and falling down in protest? I mean, in today's world, the word "fucktard" MUST be insulting to some downtrodden, grievance-bearing minority group. Damn near everything else is.

The truth is, Tiger DID play like a "spaz" on the greens on Sunday. His inability to get the ball in the hole the way he usually does probably cost him a chance to win at Augusta and there's no pretty way to describe the way Tiger played. Tiger doesn't usually miss three and four-foot putts. He did in that final round.

"I would think that anybody in the disability community would see it as offensive," says Babs Johnson of National ADAPT. "It would be looked upon as someone having a fit or seizure or something like that. Body movements that you're not able to control."

So? I believe that Tiger implied that he was having fits and seizures with his putter and body movements that he couldn't control caused him to miss shots he should have made. In other words, he played "like a spaz."

Offensive, my Cracker ass. Crude, but accurate, is more like it.


Spaz - spastic = related to or affected by muscle spasm

So if you have a "spastic colon" are you supposed to be offended?

Yeah, you're right. It was crude, but accurate (I saw him play and I'm not even into golf!)

If I had Tiger's money and pussy, I would say anything I wanted, shit, I say anything these days myself.

... there would never be a problem saying "fucktard" on television... see, those who ARE fucktards don't know it.. so they wouldn't get pissed at all... it is all in the nature of being fucktarded... denial.... well, and always thinking they are talking about someone else...

Poor bastrad couldn't one putt a green if the damn cups had been as big as a dinners plate and the green sloped towards them. Just wasn't his day and yep, he played like a spaz.

Wots do da boy mean by spaz? Is that a new word on the street?

He's usually a mediocre putter. Sunday, he putted like a spaz.

Make up a word, use any letters that don't fit and call someone that unknown word and the left wing mental retards will jump all over you. Did I just do a no no? They (left wingers) are now pitiful, more pitiful than a real retard. LMAO

Would we expect anything different from someone named Babs ??

Jeez, I say that all the time. Hell, I spaz out all the time. Hit the wrong key on the keyboard, hit my knee on the desk. The PC thing has really gone too far.

"Spaz" is probably the least offensive word he uttered on the golf course Sunday. Rumor has it, and the PGA won't confirm offensive word he uttered on the golf course Sunday. Rumor has it, and the PGA won't confirm, but dear old Eldrick is one heavily fined linkster for his on-course demeanor. I've heard he'd even put Tommy "Thunder" Bolt to shame.

Jesus Christ! Don't people have better things to do then get their panties in a wad over a stupid word?

Geesh Maeve - quit using the JC would ya - you are offending me (REALLY)! My sis had a cat named "SPAZ" - and he sure was!! I was watching when Tiger said it and I just laughed!

"The disability community".

That says something deeply meaningful. I'm not quite sure exactly what, but it's deeply meaningful.

Perhaps just that members of the "greivance community" or the "community-creating community" are all fucktards.

Then again, I'm surprised it's not the "differently-abled community". Isn't disabled an insult these days?

I hate people trying to create "communities" based on random crap. There's no community involved. Disability isn't a community. Free software isn't a community. Even being a fucktard isn't a community.
