Why is race the first and most important thing a Liberal sees?

An aging "Negro" wins at Augusta...what is the world coming to? 

 

Tiger Woods'¬†stunning Masters win¬†in Georgia on Sunday was a great day for the golfer and for anybody who can't resist a good comeback story‚ÄĒbut a lousy day for bookies. A customer betting with William Hill in Las Vegas won $1.2 million with an $85,000 bet on Woods at 14-1,¬†ESPN¬†reports. "Pretty good first bet," says William Hill exec Nick

Bogdanovich. He adds: It's great to see Tiger back. It's a painful day for William Hill‚ÄĒour biggest loss ever‚ÄĒbut a great day for golf." This is believed be just the fourth time the company has paid out seven figures in the US. The previous three were all for large bets on the Eagles beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl last year. Other bookies also lost big-time, including FanDuel, which says it is out more than $2 million,¬†NJ.com¬†reports.

 

A New Jersey outlet of BetStars had a net loss of $360,000 on the Masters, and it would have been a lot more if it had listened to executive Matthew Primeaux's suggestion that the limit for promotional bets on Woods at 100-1 be $100 instead of $10, the Washington Postreports. "I believe my direct quote was, 'Guys, there’s no way Tiger is winning this tournament,'" Primeaux says. "Whoops." The win was Woods' first Masters victory since 2005 and his first major tournament win since the 2008 US Open. He is still listed at 8.5-1 to win the PGA Championship in May, meaning "sportsbooks could be set to take another bath" if he ends up with back-to-back wins, the Post notes

Well 3 more major victories until he catches Nicklaus. If I had to bet money on him winning 3 more or not, I go with not. Not because I have anything against him but it took 10 + years to win this one and he is not getting any younger.

One more green jacket to catch Nicklaus.

I am referring to the major tournament wins. Tiger has 15 and Nicklaus 18. As for the Masters, you are correct.

Yes...I knew what you meant.

 

It will be difficult...that's why Sunday's game was so great.

 

Who knows where Tiger will go from here...except down in history as one of the greatest golfers ever.

No way of knowing. The odds of him winning 3 or 4 more majors are low. I have no rooting interest. If he does, fine. If he does not, then he was a great golfer.

  Agreed...I think he has a better chance of winning one more Masters than he does 3 or 4 majors.

I have no heroes but one, Bob Hoover. Tiger has been through things that would body-slam a good strong man. Yes, unequivocally, yes, he put himself through some of it with his philandering. But all are worthy of redemption if their frailties are acknowledged and confronted. Then there were the injuries, and surgeries. Where they because of the swinging of a 9-iron....or being swung at by one? I don't know. But this man came back from all of that, having faced his public shaming, not undeserved, to, once again win the Masters. That's no small achievement and I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed it. He deserved it. N-thionking ot because he had it coming, in some liberal way, but because he frigging well earned it.

BTW, we all know we live in a pitifully racist country.....as we are reminded by the pig-stream media and Democrats daily, but it was refreshing to see all the white nationalist racists going nuts over the triumph of a black man. Don't you think?

Which can be funny........depending on who's wallowing in it. Or, who's wearing it on their face. Bernie "millionaire" Sanders. You know him. The guy who made $500k and gave 3.4% to charity and is proud of it.

Hey everybody...Menace posted a funny.

 

But he left out the part where some Indian tribes did the same thing to other tribes all through the Americas.

 

It doesn't excuse what the Euros did to the Indians, the Spaniards were the worst, and it's very similar to what the dem party did to black people.

 

But hey...it's what yer side has cashed in on for decades...the victim card.

Absolutely! Our Southern Antebellum era hard-liner Right-Wing Conservative Christian Democrats from America's shameful 19th Century REALLY set the high bar for horrific crimes against humanity. They REALLY provided a FANTASTIC example of how one Conservative religious sect could deliver some of Man's cruelest inhumanities unto other Men, while revealing the Right-Wing Conservative Christian's true, centuries-long ideological tradition of perpetrating vile, demented, sadistic cruelty and mass-murder upon women, people of color, secularists, and non-Christians.

 

But sadly...we still see painful examples of the hard-line White Christian RIGHT's hatred against anyone outside of the Cult, today.

Targeting and murdering Sikh-Americans.

Torturing, targeting, attacking, and disenfranchising our LGBTQ communities.

Shooting-up Jewish synagogues and Islamic mosques.

Issuing Death Threats to women of color who have gained political power.

Bombing, burning, and killing innocent Americans inside Women's Health Clinics.

Conducting an 8-year campaign of racial hatred against America's first President of color.

 

Enough. Actually compiling a comprehensive list of all of the purposeful, violent attacks made by hard-liner Right-Wing Conservative Christians against their self-imagined "enemies" right here in America is a long, sad, and far too horrible task to complete, here.

  

America sees just how violently our angriest White Right-Wing cultists are reacting as our culture rapidly evolves, and tolerant attitudes toward minority citizens prevail and rocket towards becoming the new American cultural normal.

As all non-White American citizens inch closer and closer to finally attaining true equality in an American Nation that was originally established as a Conservative White Apartheid Patriarchy........we should expect that the very same folks who have sorely misused their past elevated societal status and past positions of power and influence to disadvantage all other Americans will stubbornly try to cling to authority and privilege...and they may employ extreme means to cling to that diminishing power. 

But in the end, it will avail them NOTHING.

Our American MAJORITY has already turned the last page on out Nation's darkest chapters.

Soon, we will close that book, entirely.

exactly...   Racist Americans   love Tiger, Trump loves Tiger, Rush  loves Tiger.

 

Tiger has come back from the  abyss  and   we are all better for it.    Tiger showed us how to come back from  a world of Bad worde.

Witnessing Tiger's astonishing, fiery riches-to-rags-and-back-to-riches Lazarus-like return from cold, dead golf exile was truly an inspiration to us hackers.

I wonder what all the experts who have insisted for the last decade that he would NEVER win another Major are saying, now?

 

Did his triumphant return visit to the Butler Cabin come from the Golf Gods damning the other close competitors and granting Tiger a fortuitous set of circumstances?

He basically put it on cruise-control to finish and gained two strokes over the last 6 holes, while everyone else sent balls into the drink and/or self-destructed under the pressure of a Sunday afternoon at Augusta.

 

Hard to say. He played with a lead like you are SUPPOSED to play with a small lead. What we saw was Tiger use his vast grasp of course knowledge and employ an atypical conservative, play-it-safe approach to stay OUT of trouble and position himself on the fairways and greens to get no worse than a par or bogey over the last 6 holes. We didn't witness him performing any "Tiger-like' stupendous feats of golf magic.

So maybe he was just performing a different kind of Tiger-ONLY magic?

An argument could be made that by successfully playing it safe and constantly positioning his balls AWAY from trouble, instead of playing for birdies, Tiger performed magic equal to a nailing 50 foot birdie putt or chipping it in from a green side bunker. Everyone who has a small lead on the back nine of a Major TRIES to do it, but Tiger DID it. 

Back when he was playing like Tiger Woods, he won because Tiger always DID what everyone KNOWS they have to do given the position they are in, whether ahead or behind, with uncanny consistency. Need 3 birdies over the last 7 holes to come from behind and grab the trophy? Done. Need an eagle putt on the front 9 to get into 2-shot range of the leaders on the back 9 and steal another Tournament? Done. Need to hole a 15-ft putt on the 18th to win? Done.   

 

We'll know whether Tiger "is back" over the next 2 tournaments. One thing's for certain....the PGA NEEDS a revitalized Tiger, because ever since his decline, the public's interest in golf has waned, and young American players aren't entering the sport or viewing it as a career path in the huge numbers we saw, only 15 years ago.

Was in Cartegana, but watching replays - what a f'n amazing Sunday. Masters is the best.....well, that and The Ryder Cup.

 

Really happy for Woods. He's a douche' for what he did on his amazing wife, but that was quite some time ago and none of us walk on water.

 

Good stuff.....helluva Sunday.
