VIDEO: Sergio Apologizes to Tiger for 'Fried Chicken' Remark
THE VERY PUBLIC SPAT BETWEEN SERGIO GARCIA and Tiger Woods took an ugly and stupid turn on Tuesday night at a European Tour awards dinner.
When asked if he would have Tiger as a dinner guest during next month's U.S. Open, Sergio said, "We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken."
Today, the outrage, the apology, the "is Sergio a racist?" commentary and much more.
"As soon as I left the dinner, I started getting a sick feeling in my body," Garcia said in a press conference on Wednesday.
"I wasn't able to sleep at all last night. I felt like my heart was going to come out of my body. Today it was difficult to hit a shot without thinking about it. Unfortunately, I said it. I wish I didn't do it but the only thing I can say is sorry."
I think Sergio should take a page from Vijay Singh's media relations handbook. The next time he's asked a question about Tiger Woods, use this: "No comment."
