The so-called "Reverend Al" is back at it again. Poor Kelly Tilghman is in his sights. He will stop at nothing to protect the world from this person. What a load of malarkey!!
Ya gotta feel sorry for Kelly. She had just landed the tower anchor job on the Golf Channel Tournament golf telecasts this year. Friday (day 2 of her new gig) late in the afternoon rounds, she and co-anchor Nick Faldo are clowning around. Faldo brings up the topic of Tiger Woods and suggests that the young guys on tour need to "take him out into a back alley...". Interjected by Tilghman was the phrase " yeah, and lynch him". Not sympathetic and not nice, but not to be taken out of context like it has been. She and Tiger are friends, he is soon to the first billionaire golfer in the world (that's right Billionaire). All she does is to convey that he is virtually unbeatable when on his A-game and that the only way to usurp him is to have him not play (in an off-beat way).
Now the powers that be at TGC decided to give her a 2 week suspension for her off-color remarks, but that's not enough for the "REVEREND AL". He is hollering and screaming that she should be fired for racial remarks. Even though he was eventually outmaneuvered in the Don Imus ploy, he is back at it again. What I truly don't see is the racist side of this. I can see that she made a comment that could be viewed as a personal threat, but no color was injected or intended. Tiger is done with the issue, so why does Al still have his panties in a wad. Nobody else to sacrifice this week for Al?
I thought that all ministerial/reverend type folks are supposed to help the rest of us spiritually. Not Al. He only tries to tear down people. He isn't even inconvenienced in this matter. He nor "his people" have been attacked or besmirched by this. I just don't understand this whole thing. What's your take on this?
