Surprised no one has mentioned this:

Tiger's agent: 'Lynch' remark a non-issue

By Staff Report
Published: January 08, 2008

Mark Steinberg, the agent for Tiger Woods, dismissed as a "non-issue" the controversy over Golf Channel anchor Kelly Tilghman's "lynch him in a back alley" remark during Friday's broadcast of the Mercedes-Benz Championship.

During an exchange with Nick Faldo toward the end of the second-round of the Mercedes, the pair joked about which young players on Tour might be able to challenge Woods. After Faldo suggested that the young players would have to gang up on Woods, Tilghman added, "lynch him in a back alley."

On Wednesday, the Golf Channel issued a statement apologizing for Tilghman's "unfortunate choice of words" and pointed out that she "has apologized privately to Tiger and publicly on the air."

Steinberg's statement was included in the Golf Channel release. "This story is a non-issue," he said. "Tiger and Kelly are friends and Tiger has a great deal of respect for Kelly. Regardless of the choice of words used we know unequivocally that there was no ill-intent in her comments. This story is a non-issue in our eyes. Case closed."

Tilghman also issued an apology: "On Friday during our golf broadcast, Nick Faldo and I were discussing Tiger's dominance in the golf world and I used some poorly chosen words. I have known Tiger for 12 years and I have apologized directly to him. I also apologize to our viewers who may have been offended by my comments."

In 2007, Tilghman and Faldo became the lead broadcast team for the majority of The Golf Channel's PGA Tour telecasts. She played golf at Duke, graduating in 1991, and played professionally in Australia, Europe and Asia from 1992-96.,28136,1701417,00.html

How they caught Statistic:

Chicken Bones Lead to Burglary Suspect

The Associated Press
Saturday, January 5, 2008; 6:35 PM

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A trail of chicken bones left at a burglary scene more than a year ago has led investigators to a Kansas prison inmate with a long rap sheet and a hefty appetite.

Authorities on Friday charged John Wyatt Weaver, 43, of Kansas City, with two counts of burglary and one count of stealing a firearm. No bond was set because Weaver is already serving time at Lansing Correctional Facility in Kansas for an unrelated crime.

Police tracked down the suspect through DNA left on six chicken bones strewn throughout a Gladstone apartment where several firearms were stolen in November 2006.

"The facts of this are more amusing than anything I can say," said prosecutor Daniel White.

Weaver is accused of entering two Gladstone homes on Nov. 23, 2006, court records show. At one of the crime scenes, the homeowner reported several shotguns, rifles and handguns missing.

Investigators at the scene found chewed-up chicken scattered around the residence _ leftovers authorities believe were stolen from a refrigerator at the earlier burglary.

The Kansas City crime lab examined the bones for DNA evidence, which was entered into a national database. White said the DNA on the bones matched that of Weaver, a convicted felon whose DNA had been entered into the national database.

Weaver has 16 felony convictions for second-degree burglary, stealing, tampering, receiving stolen property, automobile theft and resisting arrest. He was sentenced to Lansing Feb. 16 for burglary and fleeing police, with an earliest possible release date of Feb. 25, 2009, online prison records show.

ROFL! I give you this one. Good job.

Chill out.

ETA: I was probably the most identifiable person on LSN in 2004-05 (an adcom admitted knowing who I was), and I ended up fine.

If not you then me...

Merry Christmas everybody. I'm in Ohio :( I don't like it. I can't wait 'til I'm in Boston. I'm going to have fun.

What's so funny? That the majority of something can't be avg? That's not funny.
