John Daly: smoke 'em if you got 'em
So I’m watching John Daly warm up for his playoff with Vijay Singh at the Houston Open by chain-smoking and joshing with buddies and officials, whoever happens to pass by. He finally warms up when he gets to the first tee, cigarette dangling from his mouth, ashes dropping on his shirt.
A politically correct person I’m watching with is horrified. “Why doesn’t he take that thing out of his mouth? Do they have to show that? What kind of role model is he being?”
I’ll bet if he had been taking sips off a cool one, you’d never hear such remarks. That’s why people like Daly. He smokes, he drinks – or used to – and he obviously over-eats. You hear these self-righteous blowhards like Jim Nantz blasting Daly because he didn’t warm up. He warmed up – he had a smoke and a joke.
