Wlady, the worst example of sports PC I ever saw happened after the Payne Stewart memorial service. Stewart and the two other passengers on the ill-fated lane, Van Arden and Bob Fraley, were all members of the same church in Orlando. So was Paul Azinger, who delivered an explicitly religious sermon at the service.
In a standup minutes after the conclusion of the service, Golf World’s Tim Rosaforte did not mention any religious message whatsoever.
The message got through anyway. I corresponded with the pastor of that church briefly after the service. He credited Azinger’s sermon with attracting an unprecedented number of inquires — and new members.
