As reported here year after year, Nike Woods (yes, for 1.2 Billion Euros, Eldrick sold his first name to Nike, Inc. His full name is now "Nike Puregreed Woods") refused to come to New Orleans to play in the Zurich golf tourney. Again.
In 2006, when we could have really used the publicity for recovery, he claimed that he was taking time off to spend more time with his ailing father. In fact, he went car racing and bungy jumping. Bitch.
In 2007, he just dissed us outright.
Sure, he's been here before. As an amateur. Never as a professional.
I'm kind of torn about Zurich. I'm glad they pony up to sponsor the golf tournament, but why does their subsidiary, Farmers, have to rape us?
For crying out loud,
Nike Tiger Nike wasn't even here to film the damned Buick commercial in da Quarter. Bluescreened.
I mean, he has to be a racist, right? He can't hate New Orleans that much...can he?
