John Daly has brought it on himself, but even in absentia he still garners attention, not in a flattering manner, either. Here are four examples just from the past week:
Ken Berger of CBSSports.com: "You don't try to go shot-for-shot with Kobe (or with John Daly, if you're in a bar)."
Mike Lopresti of USA Today: "They could blow kisses to the gallery, but nothing would move the needle like the sight of Tiger Woods with a club in his hand. That could mean even more money than John Daly's bar tab."
Ryan Wilson of fanhouse.com: "I think (Boo Weekley's) good for golf in much the same way John Daly was in the early '90s before beer-soaked Twinkies took over his life
Michael Zuidema of the Grand Rapids Press, on athletes who probably don't belong on Wheaties boxes: "John Daly -- unless pouring light beer over cereal now is both tasty and socially acceptable."
