Earlier this week, we brought you the stunning self-realization of a soccer team owner that it turns out he doesn’t actually like soccer. Now, we turn our sights to another revelation from a different boring sport: golf.
Keegan Bradley took a lot of grief on Twitter for his recent performance in the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles, but not for losing the three-way playoff at the end. [Editor’s Note: it turned out the three-way was a three person golf tournament, proving last paragraph’s point.] No, golf enthusiasts were stunned by Bradley’s constant expectorating during the televised event.
After reviewing the footage, Bradley responded on his own Twitter account, saying he had no idea how much he spits and pledged to swallow more from here on out.
See, PGA? It doesn’t take much to sex up a game where men use wood to sink their balls in holes.
Shinboku-con 2011 was held in Westlake, Ohio over the weekend, and was a festival aimed at showcasing and celebrating anime and video games. Oh, and pugilism, apparently.
Yes, a rousing bout of fisticuffs most certainly did arise between two lads. Indubitably!
On April 30, two men (both attendees at the show) were arrested after getting into a disagreement over how one of the pair was “playing a video game”. This disagreement spilled over when one of the men punched the other in the mouth (kind of how it would between you and your friends, except you were 12 when that happened). Charged with assault and arrested by local police, the other guy was then also arrested after spitting on one of the cops.
And the third arrest? It came later that night, when one of the earlier pair’s younger brothers was picked up for damaging hotel property at the Holiday Inn all three had been staying in for the convention. This younger sibling and a friend – both 18 – were also nabbed for underage consumption of alcohol.
Nerds: stop trying to not be you.
