Tiger , MJ And Chuck On Politics

Tiger Woods cried like a baby on the shoulders of his caddy , Steve Williams , after winning his 11th major championshop at the British Open . ' That the human drama of athletic competition ' said ABC's Mark Tirico. It was the 1st majors since Tiger lost his father this May . Reminds one when Michael Jordan, Tiger's golfing buddy , won the NBA championship. MJ cried for a long time while hugging the ball . You see that year's NBA championship happened after MJ's father was murdered while sleeping in his car.

Tiger's Dad , Earl , once said that he will be bigger than Muhammad Ali because ' he's more educated '. I don't know about that . Tiger is more like Jordan who once said ' the Republicans wear shoes too ' when asked about his party affiliation.I know that Tiger likes his Stanford basketball team . That's all (photo left ) but Tiger normally stays out of choosing sides and issues unlike Ali. Both MJ and Woods are not vocal on issues that might jeopardize their marketability to mainstream America .

Another golfing buddy of Tiger and MJ is different. Charles Barkley declared that he has switched parties. A long time Republican , Chuck is now a Democrat. ' When I was poor , I'm for the Democratic Party but now that I'm rich , I am a Republican '. Chuck once said.
Hmmmm. Chuck must be poor again .
Must have lost a bundle on Barbaro !

Chuck : What ! kiss a donkey's ass
I just left the Party of the donkey!

MJ and Tiger are both cowards . They do not have any stand on anything but their endorsements.

Michael Jordan used to have a locker in the men's lockeroom, right next to my dad at the country club and lived just down the street. (When he lived in Birmingham) I remember when he was moving back to Chicago, they had several big moving vans, 1 of them held two of his cars).
Oh and Charles Barkley...there has been ongoing talk about him wanting to be Governor of Alabama (a few years down the road).
Just a couple of Monday tidbits.
