Some folk took it a bit to heart.

It's a bit like Andy Murray. english when he wins and Scottish when he loses.


Right. I was bagging on another American poster for a non-sequitir that was racist.

 

Relating to the Irish political troubles, however, I am curious. I haven't talked to any 'actual' Irish folks about this. I have a sister who married an Irish man (from County Kildare - and I was best man in the wedding which was over there. Talk about an experience!) and I haven't talked to her husband since the win. Wonder how he feels and the sense he has of how it's being viewed over there.

I love how, a few posts later, you clarified with the "Gangsta Talk" and "bust a cap in your a$$" references. Enlightened.

 



It was meant as sarcasm, not racism. It was the use of the word "BIATCH" that set it off. My reply was not meant to offend or bring up race. It was a comment about the use of language. I apologize if anyone was offended. I guess I am a little sensitive to the use of language considering my oldest boy just recorded a D- in English and his answer to that was "Ain't gonna matter anyway."  Again, it was about language, not some social commentary.

 

Ok, back on topic.

Come on man, I am Italian, and English is my second language, but I got the Compton joke and it has nothing to do with racism aaaaaaaaaight? ;)

the liberal politically correct nonsense would have us all practicing our daily discourse before we step out of the door so we won't offend anybody. people don't have a right not to be offended, but we do have the right to say what we wish. 

 

i didn't find anything racist about the statement.

liberal politically correct nonsense? nice.

 

i found the comment series racist. you didn't. we can disagree. it's not about being liberal, or being p.c. for me. it's about not enjoying tacit racism. if you think i'm a liberal, politically correct, (insert random blast into series here) that's cool. think it. just like i can think, and do think, what the guy said was racist. we're all entitled to our opinions, even if they make us like a$$holes - or something :-)

Mciilroy will only get better. especially now that he got that first major. He should have won at the masters but totally unraveled on 10 and was immediately done.

You guys are just a sour grapes because he is not born in the USA! A least he has shown some respect to people and organisers by dressing like a golfer. Bubba should go to some "stan" and roll in the dirt.

No it wasn't. As Zeph says, look up the definition.

I'm not sure where I read it, but someone said something about him already having had surgery. I could't find any links verifying this. I saw the bit about his back and ligaments. Did he have minor or major surgery if he did?

He had back surgery last year, not sure how extensive it was.

I think what made it funny was the fact it was so far form being true
