1. Sports-talk radio was abuzz Wednesday morning with some comments that Sergio Garcia, the professional golfer, made about his frequent foil, Tiger Woods.

    "We’ll have him ‘round every night," Garcia said. "We will serve fried chicken."

    The comment came after Garcia was asked if he would invite his rival, with whom he has a frosty relationship, to his house during next month’s U.S. Open. Woods responded to Garcia’s tweets on Twitter: “The comment that was made wasn’t silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate … I’m confident that there is real regret that the remark was made.” (Garcia offered a textbook nonapology apology.)

    Wait. This again?

    This black-people-and-fried-chicken thing is really old — it’s not even the first time a professional golfer made a joke about fried chicken and Tiger Woods.

    What is it with this stereotype about black people loving fried chicken?
