What DOES 'Mashed Potatoes" mean? - Page 3

Wasn't the birdman from England? I find the behavior childish and pathetic. Unless you are under the age 17 this is not entertaining behavior. Pixel are you 14 years old? It is just not funny. Thank god I have never heard "mashed potatoes" on my golf course.

I feel these inbred knuckle dragging mouth breathers should be removed from the course with great  prejudice and malice c5_banana.gif

I think that the people that yell stupid shit should be taken away to be tested for public drunkenness. After tested if they sober they can rejoin the gallery. A few embarrassing trips to the tent should curb this.

I doubt it, go ahead and play with your friends and have them yell something a split second after you hit it everytime and watch as you hit a 102 instead of your 91 average.

Just mad because I brought up how you hang weights from your penis. It's all good bro.

They save their rowdiness for soccer games.

I am afraid, that the same booze fuelled lifestyle has landed here also.

It is the same people who stand up and look for the camera at a hockey game. People more worried that their buddies will know it was them at the event than enjoying being there. I am fairly sure that the ones who yell random stuff go running home to watch the same event that they have recorded to see if they can hear themselves and then exclaim "That's me" with great pride.

Good point. It's a 'look at me' statement. Some people want attention no matter how stupid it  makes them look.

Well I guess I'm just happy they stopped yelling "You Da Man" but it does get out of hand from time to time.

 

In my opinion Tiger fans are the absolute worst on the course. "Tiger Fan" is really making a move to overtake "Raider Fan" as the most rediculous in sports.

I guess you are just one of those people who is genetically disposed to being a jackass.

Yep.  Golf used to be the one sporting event where the fans acted like adults instead of spoiled brats.  What ever happened to showing a little respect for others.   If you want to act like an immature idiot, go to a boxing match or a soccer game.  Or don't stand in front of me at a golf tournament.  I guarantee that you won't like what I have to say. z1_censored.gif

 

I can probably guess the physical age range of the screamers on this forum.... there is no doubt of their psychological age. d2_doh.gif

I understand trying to get more people involved in golf and growing the game and all that, but the history of the game and the ideas of respect and integrity that they talk about on the first tee commercials should be remembered by the people yelling out at an event... I don't have a problem with 16 at Phoenix, because it is a designated zone and is expected. I'ts not the 18th in the us open.

I think it's somewhat related to the grunting in women's tennis... many believe it is seriously out of hand, and I have to say, I have watched a few matches where I wanted to change the channel much like I do when a car salesmen commercial comes on the radio and I almost wreck my car because he is yelling at me.

 

I'm not sure how much the imitation of tourette's syndrome affects the players on the course, but it sure is annoying to me as a spectator.

I think yelling during events is stupid.  But that's what it means.

I beg to differ.

 

It is a declaration of the state of mind of the yeller, i.e. "I've got mashed potatoes for brains!"

 

In many cases this would not be a surprise to those who know and tolerate them ......

If you do this, you might end up with a stick up your butt, preferably administered by someone like Ernie or Vijay - have you ever seen (up close and personal) the power of Vijay hacking out of deep rough?  I recommend that you do attend your first pro event for this reason if for no other.   You might then have second thoughts about your plan ....

"TELEPHONE BOOK!"  "PAPER CLIP!"  "DOUBLE PANE WINDOWS!"

 

Doesn't get much more stupid...

I heard one guy scream "Yabba Dabba Doooooo" after Bubba hit a tee shot. I watched some of the event this last weekend and I couldn't believe how noisy it was. It was like watching Happy Gilmore..
