Tiger Woods spit scandal has us drooling

By Justin Aucoin

Tiger Woods recently ruffled the feathers of the high and mighty golf tribunal by doing this:

Commentator Ewen Murray: Disgusting what he did just there. He just spat all over the green

All over the green is a bit of an exaggeration. Were pretty sure Woods would have to squeeze every drop of water in his body through his saliva glands to be able to cover the entire green. In fact, the average human outputs 0.75 to 1.75 liters of saliva per day. Thats not going to cover that green.

Suck and salve all over that, Ewen.

Best part of this story is that Woods is being fined an undisclosed amount for his loogy.

Murray: It does not get much lower than that.

Really, Murray? Spitting is as low as it gets? You need to get your priorities in order, sir.

It takes people almost losing their head before the NHL fines or suspends a player and a PGA event will fine someone for merely spitting. Maybe theyd be happier if Woods caddy brought a spit bucket for him?

Some people have complained that they wouldnt want to hit their ball through Woods spit. Well guess what, folks? Theres a 99.9 chance that some bird or squirrel relieved itself on the green already, so, if anything, his spit is sanitizing your balls.

We think Dubai is getting its undies all twisted when it should be a bit more culturally aware. Perhaps Woods is a cowboy, infamous for their bar-spitting abilities and competitions.

Maybe hes a big fan of baseball and was looking to connect with an audience born after the 19th century.

Or maybe -- just maybe -- Tiger is really a llama.

At the end of the day we the PGA needs to take a lesson from the prophet known as Ace Ventura.

This totally wins for grossest sports blog post.

Game notes: Patriots 27, Steelers 16

Game notes: Patriots 27, Steelers 16

Postgame notes from the Patriots' 27-16 victory over the Steelers, courtesy of the Pats' P.R. department:


-- The Patriots are 6-1 and have won at least six of their first seven games for the eighth time in team history and the sixth time under coach Bill Belichick. The Pats started 7-0 in 2007 and 2015, and 6-1 in 1974, 1980, 2004, 2006, 2010 and 2016.

-- The Patriots extended their franchise record of games at the start of a season without an interception to seven. (The previous team record was four, set last year.) The NFL record is nine, set by the 1960 Browns, and the 2008 Redskins had eight.


-- Rob Gronkowski tied Stanley Morgan's franchise record for most touchdowns (68) and most touchdown receptions (67).

-- The TD pass caught by Gronkowski was the 66th he's caught from Tom Brady, putting the two of them in seventh place in NFL history for most quarterback-to-receiver touchdowns. They trail Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison (112), Steve Young/Jerry Rice (85), Dan Marino/Mark Clayton (79), Philip Rivers/Antonio Gates (79), Drew Brees/Marques Colson (72) and Manning/Reggie Wayne (67). Sunday's Brady-to-Gronkowski TD broke a tie at 65 with Jim Kelly/Andre Reed.

-- Gronkowski now has 5,930 career receiving yards, 14th-best among tight ends in NFL history. His 93 yards Sunday moved him past Todd Heap (5,869) and Todd Christensen (5,872).

-- LeGarrette Blount rushed for 127 yards, his third 100-yard game of the season and 13th of his career.
