So I heard on the news this morning that there is a movie in the works about one of my favorite professional atheletes of all time, John Daly. In case you don’t know who Mr. Daly is, well he is like the “bad boy” of professional golf (although more recently, Tiger Woods has been making a strong run at that title). John likes to drink, he likes to smoke, he likes to play guitar, and he likes to not only eat at Hooters, but also date their waitresses.
He has had an up and down life where he has experienced the highs of winning PGA tournaments and the lows of waking up in a pile of 600 Hooters chicken wing bones with 3 empty bottles of Jack and a plethera of underage waitresses around him, AND missing 4 of his golf clubs. However, he has turned things around recently for the better. Apparently he has lost 115 pounds and is trying to work his way back into the golf limelight. I was excited when I heard they wanted to make a movie about his life, but I was not excited to find out they wanted Kevin James of Kings of Queens fame to play him. Seriously Hollywood??? Kevin James? You mean the guy that looks like a giant baby and is a comedian??? Paul Blartt??? Get out of here! They need this guy…..
I think he looks just like JD, without the Hitler mustache of course. In fact I heard this guy is booked for the next 3 years doing Hitler look alike appearances.
I’ll tell you what, this entire Tiger Woods saga is pretty unbelievable if you ask me. I mean here is the best golfer in the world, maybe the best golfer of all time, who seems like a very down to Earth family man, with a billion dollars and a beautiful wife and beautiful kids, who always kind of stays out of the limelight. That was two weeks ago. Now, his list of porn star mistresses has quadrupled in size overnight and no one has seen or heard from him in weeks. I’m not usually into scandals like this…but this one is like watching a car wreck. I find myself intrigued to see how far this is going to spin out of control before it finally comes to a hault. Honestly I cannot believe all of the allegations that keep coming out, and even though I am not a huge Tiger fan, I find myself hoping that all of this stops for him soon. I know that he made his own bed and now must sleep in it, but this is mind boggling. It would be like finding out that Andre Kirilenko is going to inheret Playboy or Hustler and become the next Hugh Hefner overnight.
I am starting to believe that it is impossible for anyone to remain faithful or NOT take naked pictures of themselves. Part of me thinks that this is just the world we live in now, where everybody is so accessible whether they like it or not. Part of me thinks that this is how the world has been for a real long time and it’s going to take a while for everyone to figure out how to cover their tracks up again.
At least I have the “Only 7 NBA Personalities Who Never Successfully Secured Road Beef” to look up to.
Alright well that’s all I got for today. I leave you with a haiku…
JD chugged JD
No “road beef” for poor ol’ Z
Tiger? Dirk Diggler?
