The 2015 NFL season kicked off Sunday and there were dozens of celebrities in attendance at games all across the country. NBC’s Sunday Night Football kicked off with a bang at Jerry World in Arlington as the Dallas Cowboys faced off with the New York Giants.
The Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium is one of the biggest spectacles to behold in all of the NFL, so there was an abundance of stars in the building for last night’s thriller. T
iger Woods was sitting up in one of the luxury suites and NBC’s Al Michaels recognized him immediately. Too bad that he didn’t see one of the greatest golfers in the world today sitting right next to him.
Michaels said, “In his is place is one Eldrick Woods.” Of course, Eldrick is Tiger’s actual name, but the real travesty is the fact that Michaels didn’t realize Tiger was sitting with Jordan Spieth; you know, Spieth. the same guy that won the Masters AND the US Open this year? The same guy that was ranked number one in the world just a month ago?
Maybe Michaels should brush up on his athletes for future situations like this. God forbid that he recognizes Michael Jordan, but not Steph Curry on national television.
