Certain celebrities enjoy global recognition; their mere mention can capture people’s attention as we eagerly seek updates on their lives.
When the majority of individuals envision famous celebrities, their minds typically gravitate toward singers and actors. In the realm of sports, there are also figures who transcend their sport, like Tiger Woods, commanding recognition even from those who don’t typically follow athletic pursuits.
Nevertheless, there are instances when individuals encounter these renowned figures without recognizing their identity. Such was the case when Tiger Woods found himself in Ireland, and the resulting humorous anecdote offers a hearty laugh.
On a golf tour in Ireland, Tiger Woods drives his BMW into a petrol station in a remote part of the Irish countryside.
The pump attendant obviously knows nothing about golf and greets him in a typical Irish manner completely unaware of who the golfing pro is. “Top of the mornin’ to yer, Sir” says the attendant.
Tiger nods a quick “Hello” and bends forward to pick up the nozzle. As he does so, two tees fall out of his shirt pocket onto the ground.
“What are dose?”, asks the attendant.
“They’re called tees”, replies Tiger.
“Well, what on the god’s earth are dey for?”, inquires the Irishman.
“They’re for resting my balls on when I’m driving”, says Tiger.
“My Lands!”, says the Irishman, “BMW thinks of everything!”
