After all the two-hour prime-time extravaganza only boasts the likes of Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Sheryl Crow, Jamie Foxx, Steve Carell, Stevie Wonder, Garth Brooks, Usher, and a few more for Sunday night's big shew.
Not Happy Gilmore
How about bringing in arguably the greatest golfer in the world? Some would say the greatest athlete in the world.
No, not John Daly.
Tiger Woods will be joining the festivities on Sunday night.
"I am honored that I was invited to this historic event, and look forward to participating in Sunday's festivities," Woods said on his flashy web site.
Although Woods has stayed out of politics for the most part, he did discuss Obama's victory shortly after the election (see video below).
“I think it's absolutely incredible," Woods said to CNBC. "He represents America. He's multiracial. I was hoping it would happen in my lifetime. My father was hoping it would happen in his lifetime, but he didn't get to see it. I'm lucky enough to have seen a person of color in the White House."
When asked about how his father would have reacted to Obama's victory, Woods said, "He would have cried, no doubt about it."
Although we don't know when Tiger will take the stage, the two-hour event dubbed, "WE ARE ONE: THE OBAMA INAUGURAL CELEBRATION AT THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL" will begin at 7:00pm (ET) on HBO.
The signal will be distributed for free to cable and satellite TV subscribers.
