Charles Barkley’s Golf Swing: (Still) Inspiration To Us All

May 5, 2011

3 Comments

Now, we know that the sheer absurdity of The Round Mound of Rebound’s golf swing isn’t exactly a new phenomenon, but it’s still a phenomenon nonetheless — which is why we feel it’s wise to occasionally remind aspiring golfers out there that things could always be worse.

Here’s Barkley on the first tee at a recent celebrity outing. Notwithstanding the incomprehensibility of the motion involved here, Sir Charles also manages to lose his club head, apparently nearly out-driving his own ball in the process. Amazing.

Luckily, Bo Jackson — AKA: “the 2nd greatest athlete in Auburn history” — was apparently on hand to lend Barkley a replacement driver, and we can only imagine the theatrics that went down throughout the remaining 17 holes.

Good stuff, Chuck. Who says one can never really own their swing?

Robert Allenby adds a little excitement to the Australian Masters, knocks out — presumably bored — spectator

We’ve got quite a few golfers on staff here at Frumpzilla. I’m not one of them.

Try or not try as he might, The Gingerhead Man will likely never get me out on the links — at least not until scenes like this become less of an anomaly.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not wishing injuries on anyone, and I certainly hope this chap made a full recovery. But, a little zest from time to time couldn’t hurt, right? A bit of danger, perhaps? It would certainly pique my interest.

Many thanks to Robert Allenby in advance.

The New Nike Ad w/ Tiger Woods is….Awkward.

April 7, 2010

0 Comments

This is the new 30 second spot Nike is debuting tomorrow during the Masters.  It’s a simple ad where Tiger’s (deceased) father Earl speaks while Tiger stares (awkwardly) at the camera.  I can’t be the only one that wishes that instead of 30 seconds, it was a 20 minute epic of Earl berating him without mercy.  That I could take a break from the Masters for.

(although, recent reports suggest his Dad may have well just given him high fives for 20 minutes)

5 melodramatic press conferences that give Tiger a run for his money

February 19, 2010

Tiger Woods: The ThesbianDon’t let some of these pundits fool you, Frumpsters. Sure, sports naturally lends itself to drama, and the adoring public’s spotlight, for better or worse, typically doesn’t switch off when the lights of the arenas, fields and stadiums that players and coaches occupy in their respective professional lives do, but sometimes people just need to get a grip.

Seriously, we’ve got respected, established journalists out there (who shall remain nameless) shedding tears and using words like “profound” and “deep” in reference to this act Tiger just put on a bit ago.

And, before I get labeled a “hater” or something, let me just say that, before now, I was never particularly fazed by all this Tiger scandal stuff. It was entertaining more than anything, but never completely ruined Tiger’s aura, or whatever, for me.

Now, however, after it became overwhelmingly clear that the most sincere thing at Tiger’s presser was his own level of self absorption (or possibly the look on his mother’s face), he just might be doomed.

But at least he’s not the first to pull a stunt like this, right? I mean, his performance may have been the most Oscar-worthy, sure, but there is precedence, and we highlight a bit of what may have served as inspiration for Tiger here (and after the jump).

We’ve also got the full clip of Tiger’s press conference for those of you that may have missed out, so please do enjoy (regardless of how unfair it all is).

Enjoying the “Playoffs”?

June 16, 2008

You better be.  I know I am, and there’s really no excuse for any sports fan not to be.  Between the NBA Finals, College World Series, Euro 2008, and today’s U.S. Open showdown between a couple guys named Tiger and Rocco, what more could one really ask for this time of year?  So yeah, today would have probably been a nice day to call in sick.  We’ve got Rocco and Tiger at noon ET, Miami and Florida State, the 1st and 3rd favorites respectively to win the CWS, in an elimination game at 2:00, and Germany and Austria for a spot in the Euro Quarter Finals at 2:45.  Time your lunch appropriately.  If you had the foresight to Tivo this stuff, good luck avoiding the scores/updates today at work.  If you had no such vision, well, be mindful of the visionaries around you.  At least we should all get to enjoy seeing two potential CWS cinderellas square off in Georgia vs Stanford tonight at 7:00.  College Football should be taking notes…

Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate will play an 18 hole playoff today for the US Open Championship The NBA Finals, in full force, is on its way back to Boston.  My 4-2 prediction is looking good right now

                   Georgia's Gordon Beckham is hoping to lead the Dawgs to CWS glory

     This was the best Euro 2008 photo I could track down.

Tiger Watch!:  Day 2 at the Masters

April 11, 2008

Tiger’s 7 back now.  He’s looked relatively pedestrian, and the task ahead is a daunting one.  Woods will need the 2nd biggest comeback in Masters’ history if he wants to slip on that 5th Green Jacket this year.  Of course, if anyone is gonna pull such a feat off, Tiger is the most likely candidate.  The Grand Slam dream, and the hype, is alive, but it’s slipping.  It’s on life support even.  Some Tiger free highlights await after the jump.  Gary Player Edition…

Tiger may be letting that 5th jacket slip away...
