You aint seen nothing yet from Tiger, John Seibel
I was driving home tonight, debating whether to listen to Vanessa Carlton sing “A Thousand Miles” again (always gets to me, makes me think of Latrell in White Chicks) or check out some John Seibel on the radio. Imagine my surprise when JS seized the opportunity laid bare by Jim Brown to slap Tiger Woods with a backhanded compliment. Goes something like this:
JB says Tiger could do better. Says Tiger teaches kids to play golf and that’s all.
What I want to know is, was JB effecting change while still active in the NFL? Was he wearing the cool subcontinent clothing and headware? I’m guessing that the answer is “No.” I’m pretty steamed that he calls Tiger out, as if TW weren’t doing enough. Tiger is helping to raise a family and is trying to break a record held by Jack Nicklaus. Let me say this: if a black man, a man of color can be held up as the greatest major champion in a white man’s game, that’s a lot. That’s a foundation on which to build a program of change.
Remember when Tiger turned pro and Earl Woods said that his kids would change the world? My money is on Tiger doing just that. He won’t do it as an active competitor, mind you. Look for him to do it after major championship # 20, around age 45. I hope you’re alive to see it, JB. You’ll be smiling.
