Jason Day’s Wife Injured at NBA Game When Lebron James Goes Into Crowd Chasing Loose Ball

7:20 am Update:  The London Guardian reports Ellie Day has been released.

7:04 am Update:  It was ESPN’s first story on Sports Center.  No update on Ellie’s status.  Here’s an article from the London Independent with a video of the incident.

7:00 am Update:  Incredible.  Morning Drive is apparently a canned pre-recorded show.  All those hard workers at Golf Channel couldn’t be bothered to work the week before the week before Christmas.

6:50 am Update:  I just turned on Golf Channel, ten minutes before Morning Drive, so I could get the latest on Ellie Day.  What is on, as I wait for MD to start?  Lerner, Chamblee, and Rosaforte doing a panel discussion on…  Tiger Woods.  Here’s a programming suggest for Golf Channel when they are not showing live tournament coverage:


Breaking News:  Ellie Day was kept in a hospital overnight for observation after being injured at an NBA game.  She was taken out of the building on a stretcher.

It’s surprising there are not more of these type injuries with spectators located dangerously close to the action.

    GC and MD are so pathetic. I was watching the father/son tournament last week and they just couldn’t help themselves. I forget which announcer it was, but he was talking about Jack and his career/longevity etc. and Kelly Tilghman chimes in and says “You can’t talk about Jack and not talk about Tiger.” She then proceeded to gush over Woods with all the usual drivel. Unbelievable! I don’t know why I was surprised but it really made me mad. I look forward to watching the father/son tournament every year. I look forward to seeing those guys even if they are past their primes and they inject this type of crap.
    Then two days ago I see an article on Yahoo that Chamblee said “Woods is Greatest Player of All Time”. Why the about face Brandel? It wasn’t that long ago you were questioning his integrity as a player and how his cheating on the golf course was going to be a black cloud hovering over him for the rest of his career. This type of stuff makes me sick. He said Tiger is the best because “Tiger dominated in a way that had never been done before and will never be done again.” Never is a very long time my friend.
    Have you ever heard of Walter Hagen, Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, or Tom Watson? I would say they dominated the game and kicked everyone’s butt when they were in their primes. I’m so sick of this crap. It’s as if the entire past history of golf has been erased. So now it’s not about tournament wins or majors won it’s “dominating for a certain period of time.” This is the same thing they are doing with Tiger’s record of consecutive cuts made. An impressive record I admit, but how much more are they going to delude everyone else’s accomplishments to maintain that Wood’s is still king of the mountain? In my opinion this also applies to the Hall of Fame. They have lowered the standards so much that I actually feel bad for the guys who really accomplished things during their careers. I mean winning two majors is nothing to look down upon but I really don’t think that should qualify you for the Hall of Fame. I wanted to make sure I got this last post in before you go Tiger free in 2016.

      I think Chamblee is trolling, desperately trying to maintain some semblance of an audience. He fancies himself as “controversial,” but Nobilo left Chamblee in the dust with his move to CBS and his remarks about the Rock Ishii ball giving Woods a great advantage in 2000. Tilghman surely has a financial stake in Woods, directly or indirectly. They were once both clients of IMG. Maybe she moved to the new company Steinberg and Woods went to, or maybe she gets money from Nike. Kelly just flat-out needs to be fired.

      We promise not to be too draconian in the enforcement of the Tiger Woods-Free policy. We were starting to attract a crowd that would make a Woods comment to articles having nothing to do with him. There are a hundred places on the Internet to do that, but I guess they find them so lame they want to play their games here, on a quality website.

    I am going to miss Chamblee and Nobilo going at it on television. I don’t want to use the word bully but Nobilo was the only one who would stand up to Chamblee and debate him on issues. The rest of the guys on that panel are a joke especially Aarron Oberholser. Notah really isn’t even worth mentioning. The best was when Nobilo was arguing with Chamblee’s statement that Tiger’s whole problem was “too much forward shaft lean at impact” (LOL my gosh). David Duval does this to a certain extent now but he only rocks the boat so much and I’m sure does not want to ruffle to many feathers since he is the new guy. I have noticed that Chamblee does back off and back track a bit when Duval disagrees with him or says he’s off the mark.
    I had no idea Tilghman was once associated with IMG. It all makes sense now. That’s probably why she was offered the first interview after November 2009. I just boggles my mind how a guy can flip flop as much as Chamblee when it comes to Woods. Lets not forget it was Chamblee who accused Woods of cheating back in 1999 on the John Feinstein show. Its on youtube if you want to check it out. (His ball was next to a mushroom and was interfering with his backswing and he essentially chopped the mushroom down with his club prior to hitting the ball).

    • lannyh says:

      You know, for several years, I questioned Chamblee’s constant harping that Woods should go back to his “original Butch swing.” The fact that Woods on multiple occasions — and even multiple swing changes — said he was changing in order to avoid reinjuring himself just seemed too complicated for Chamblee to understand.

      Woods would change his swing, his shoes, his swing again, and say he was doing it to prevent reinjury, and Chamblee would say over and over, “Woods needs to go back to his old swing.”

      Now that Woods has had more operations than Caitlyn Jenner, and struggles to even walk, maybe Chamblee will finally get the point.

      What’s sad is that Chamblee made a lot of money by slinging that nonsense.

      I hadn’t heard of Mushroom gate. Do you have a link?

  3. HennyB says:

    I agree 100%. What is it that he doesn’t understand or cannot get through his head? He was also in denial on the state of Tiger’s health. I’m pretty sure he was convinced he was as healthy as a horse. Unfortunately that is the sate of reporting in today’s world. I feel the same way about the talking heads on all major news outlets. They just sit up there talking all sorts gibberish never held accountable and rake I the dough. It doesn’t even matter if their right or wrong. How does that saying go? It’s great work if you can get it. LOL.

      Add the horrible, untrustworthy content to the awful delivery — on TV: ever-present scrolls, constant “movement”; screen-blocking subtitles, on the Internet: ads appearing/disappearing/reappearing; dropdown and dropups when you scroll; flash ads; autoplay video — and media is truly at an all-time low these days.

    indeed sir!

    The funny thing is that the Ellie story is only a story because she’s a celebrity, or at least married to one.

    • lannyh says:

      I know. I was thinking about that, too. I was interested because I “know” her, and remember her during Jason’s vertigo on the 54th hole at Chambers Bay. And I know the story of their meeting, etc. But had it been Joe Blow, it would not have gotten as much attention. Although, to be sure, it would have been covered.

      • TigerFan says:

        Technically true as far as it getting mentioned if it was Joe Blow but as you say, it wouldn’t have been covered all day long like this version.

      • lannyh says:

        True. I did see it mentioned on a general news cable channel, now that I think about it.

    • Mr Merrick says:

      No kidding. Woods fans display great insight.
