ABTV Celebrities Fighting Coronavirus: The Match: Champions for Charity
Extreme trash-talk, average golf, but millions donated towards COVID-19 relief as Team Tiger-Payton took down Team Phil-Tom at Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Charity on Sunday.
Between the witty banter and almost painful golf games, viewers were able to feel relatable to four of the biggest athlete celebrities and weren’t shy to recognize this on social media.
However, this made-for-TV event provided hours of entertainment for sports fans who have gone over two months without live sports, and it was all for a good cause. By the end of the match, $20 million was raised toward COVID-19 relief efforts.
Country artist Brad Paisley pledged his allegiance for his commercial pal, Peyton Manning saying he was “of course team Peyton”.
The event started off with both teams taking big swings – and not exactly on the green – at one another.
Peyton Manning got things rolling as he jokingly states he should’ve brought Eli or Nick Foles to be his caddy. (For any non-football fans, this referred to the only quarterbacks to beat Tom Brady in a Super Bowl).
The two quarterbacks played each other 17 times in the NFL with Tom Brady having won 11 out of those games.
Although, this was about the extent that Tom Brady would be able to put his money where his mouth is because from here on out, viewers mostly took to Twitter to rejoice in Brady’s golf failings.
Current NFL quarterback Case Keenum tweeted he was “all in” after Tiger and Petyon were looking for their golf balls in the woods – something many, if not all, golfers have had to do at some point playing the game, professionals and amateurs alike.
Watching Tiger look for Peyton’s golf ball in the woods makes it all worth it. I’m all in. #TheMatch
One of the biggest storylines surrounding the NFL this offseason was Tom Brady’s decision to move on from the New England Patriots – where he’s played for 20 seasons – and join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs and New Orleans Saints are in the same division, playing each other twice every season. So, Saints’ head coach, Sean Payton had some jokes for twitter admitting that he liked this Florida version of Tom Brady.
Brady also fulfilled Koepka’s pledge and earned the promised $100,000.
Unfortunately, Brady’s golf skills weren’t the biggest joke of the day. The NFL superstar ripped his pants. Yes, you read that right – he ripped his pants. And of course, twitter noticed within seconds.
While many felt relief watching the poor play of two NFL legends, some didn’t have the same opinion. FOXSports TV personality and NFL Hall of Famer, Shannon Sharpe tweeted he has to be good or great at a task in order to enjoy it and watching Tom and Peyton play golf reinforced his desire to not.
After watching Tom and Peyton playing golf. This is why I don’t play. I need to be good or gr8 at a task in order for me to enjoy it. #GolfIsHard
