Overheard on the links

Tiger Woods, Tony Romo and House Minority Whip John Boehner played together this morning in the Pro-Am at AT&T National in Washington, D.C.  Astute observers were able to pick up on some of the conversation.

“Tiger, congrats on having another baby. And Tony, I saw that Jessica is pregnant. What? Really? She’s not? Wow. I’m so sorry.”

“Your ball hasn’t fallen off the tee once yet, Tony. Don’t let Wade Phillips know. You’ll lose your job as the holder on field goals.”

– – – – –

“Boehner is going to be pissed he hit that one in the trees. He likes to stay out in the fairway to sun his leathery skin.”

– – – – –

“Tiger, I realize we Republicans are stereotyped as out-of-touch racists, but you do really look a bit like President Obama. And also Colin Powell. And Condoleeza Rice. And Frederick Douglass. And Harriet Tubman. And my Oriental dry-cleaner.”

“Tony, you know, you should really also yell FORE! whenever you throw a pass in December. It’s good etiquette. You could hurt someone.”

– – – – –

“Tiger wears red shirts on Sundays. I wear orange skin on all days. I don’t see the difference.”

– – – – –

“I don’t think we’re going to find that one. Too bad Pelosi isn’t here to track our shots with her hypervision alien bug eyes.”

– – – – –

“I think you should know that I am against your kind getting married.”

“What do you mean?”

“You know — homos.”

“I’m not gay.”

“Then why is your name Tony Homo?”

“It’s not. It’s Tony Romo.”

“Well, Tony Homo is how they pronounce it around here.”
