We don’t often write about golf here at the Deuce, but when something like this comes along, I almost feel compelled. Seems that Tiger Woods: sex addict, drug abuser, and recipient of multiple knee surgeries, at one point considered walking away from professional golf and becoming an Navy SEAL. To wit: Read the rest of this entry
Awesome video made by the good people and friends of the Deuce at Wondershot, Tiger and Elin in an eHarmony-esque commercial. Great for a laugh. Check it out.
Irish online sports betting site Paddy Power lost a bit of money over the weekend when they decided to pay out over $2 million in wagers on Tiger Woods to win the PGA Championship on Saturday…before he even teed off for round 3. This, obviously, did not work out so well for the betting site when YE Yang came from no where and won the event on Sunday. Meaning they not only lost that $2+ million that they already gave away for nothing, but they also had to pay people who bet on Yang at 150/1.
The guys that run this sports book might be the boldest dumbasses you have ever heard of in your life.
The best thing about this all is that the book isn’t trying to get the money back. Some other sportsbook might try some real shady things to get their cash back, but not Paddy Power. They gave it away before they should’ve and they paid the price, taking their medicine like the men they are. That is a bookie that I can get behind there and I’ll willingly give em this little free advertisement in this space for their huge blunder.

Could be fake for sure. It at least sounds fake. I’m saying its probably fake. Its pretty loud, right into a mic and is a typical fake juicy fart sound, but you can watch for yourself and see Tiger Woods and his caddy, Steve Williams, laugh right when the fart sound happens. Nothin but the best for the Deuce.
