The Chinese Liked the Big White Guy!

Phil Mickelson HSBC Championship Trophy ChinaLao Mi or Phil Mickelson won the HSBC Championship in Shanghai on Sunday, which was really Saturday here in America. Highlighted in Nanfung Daily was how Phil might be ranked second in the world, but he was number one in approachability. This comes to no surprise of the Americans, as we’ve always felt closer to Phil than Tiger. I just found it interesting that Tiger wasn’t more well received, since he is in fact Asian. I guess they aren’t that big on half Chinese. I figured that alone would win him a good chunk of the popularity vote. The paper cited how Phil would hang around and sign autographs, but Tiger would leave immediately. It also said good luck getting Tiger to acknowledge you even if you are one inch from him! Once again, we see that Tiger is just a machine, and probably is the one reason I still root against him to this day.

I think that's better than I could do!

I think that's better than I could do!

In the end it was Laohu (Tiger) vs. Lao Mi (Phil), and Laohu only really had one good moment during the day sinking a birdie from about 14 feet away. He was constantly distracted by camera’s clicking during his backswing, and was quoted “I couldn’t wait to get out of here.” Phil on the other hand was giving the classic high-five to everybody that he walked by as he edged Els out for the victory by one stroke! Hopefully Phil is getting back on track after a disappointing season last year. His family seems to be okay, so now we’ll see if his focus goes back to the golf course!

    Hate to break it to you, cuz… but Tiger ain’t Chinese, he’s Thai. I guess that’s one less reason to root for him!

    It’s good to know that the Chinese aren’t fearful of the big white guy. Cause in most circumstances Phil could eat a couple of them for breakfast . What with the size of his girth ? He makes Oprah’s yo-yo weight loss seem like something of a joke !

    Great player but sloppy when it comes to his alleged fitness regime that he was once espousing.

    So it looks like AI may well want out of Memphis ? Now tell me who didn’t see this bull_hit coming down the pike ?

    What, so after seeing Graceland he found Memphis was that boring ? Didn’t he know that Elvis had already left the building ?

    Chiefs release RB Larry Johnson

    By DOUG TUCKER, AP Sports Writer 20 minutes ago

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)—The Kansas City Chiefs have released troubled running back Larry Johnson(notes).

    A two-paragraph statement from the team Monday simply listed Johnson’s statistics and announced his release. Johnson was due to come off a two-week suspension Monday.

    Johnson apparently caused the Chiefs to run out of patience after his latest brush with controversy. He questioned coach Todd Haley’s credentials on his Twitter accounted, insulted fans and used a gay slur. He then repeated the slur to reporters the next day.

    Johnson needed 75 yards to breaking the team’s career rushing mark.

    He established an NFL single-season record with 416 rushing attempts in 2006 when he set a franchise single-season mark with 1,789 rushing yards. He was a first round draft pick in 2003 from Penn State.

    Who didn’t see that coming concerning Larry Johnson and the Chiefs ? LOL,LOL,LOL !!!! ‘nough said !
