Saturday Tiger Woods was inducted into the Stanford sports hall of fame. As part of his induction, Woods gave a speech from midfield of Stanford Stadium at halftime of the Cal-Stanford game. That’s where he got a surprising, extremely vocal response from the fans in attendance.
(Reception so rude that Tiger stopped speech)
The boos were so loud that Woods actually had to stop in the middle of his remarks - as he was clearly taken aback by the reax.
The boos most likely came from Cal fans, who made the trip to The Farm from over the Bay Bridge. But even with that knowledge, Woods still was left somewhat aghast.
Understandable when you consider we’re watching the most famous athlete in the world most likely getting booed for the first time in his life.
Also ironic when you consider that if Tiger was ever going to get booed, it would’ve been on this previous occasion.
