I had been skeptical about disgruntled filmgoer Sarah Deming's
lawsuit stating, among other things, that the film "Drive" might rouse
anti-Semitic violence. I didn't think it was likely to incite
violence of any kind. Until I saw this story about Tiger Woods fan Brandon Kelly, who assaulted his idol with a hot dog.
Woods was attempting to sink a putt during the Frys.com Open when Kelly threw the wiener at him (Woods
missed the shot). Explaining the attack
to the "Santa Rosa Press Democrat," Kelly said, "I threw the hot dog toward
Tiger Woods because I was inspired by the movie 'Drive.'
As soon as the movie ended, I thought to myself, ‘I have to do something
courageous and epic. I have to throw a hot dog on the green in front of Tiger.'"
Could the fact that Woods was playing on the "links" have
anything to do with Kelly's attack? Or that
Woods used a "driver" to get on the
green? Does the possibility that the meat missile was a Hebrew National frank
have anything to do with it?
There's a lot more going on here than I first thought.
