Time four Bubba  to give a kid something.

Then we can all talk about how "cool" it was.

 

His genius is to know what people say about him but not read it.

 

Hey...he's just trying to live a "Christian life" whatever that is.

 

I'm just trying to see the connections, but can't.  He's a thoroughly unpleasant, nasty jerk.  But...he's going to heaven, so you aren't allowed to criticise him.

Yup.

 

Bubba to me is a "fake nice guy."

I too would buy the book, it would be best if it's short stories/random thoughts on golfers..

That must be the cool, suave, laconic response that the tag line and avatar are so desperately trying to convey.

Bet you're wearing a Hugh Hefner style smoking jacket and holding a brandy balloon. 

 

Very cool.

Just don't have the cravat too loose or too tight. It has to be  just right.

This from the Guardian - sums this jerk up pretty nicely.

 

Bubba Watson won’t be reading this

 

 

Bubba Watson falls into that unfortunate batch of sportspeople who claim, “The media write bad things about me. But I never read any of it anyway.”

The classic contradiction. As is the supposedly official Bubba Twitteraccount, which is routinely updated at moments when it couldn’t possibly be by the golfer himself.

What has specifically riled Watson is unclear. He started his sniping towards the press at the Open and has continued the theme this week.

“I think the media really loves me because I don’t give PC answers,” Watson said. “Sometimes people write different stories and make it and twist it in ways they want to. But again, the way I live my life and the way I want to live my life as a Christian, I don’t read, I took the internet off my phone. I don’t read what people write about me. I don’t read what people say about me.

“My true friends, my family, they know who I am as a person and what my heart is all about.”

Which all sounded like rambling nonsense to me. One wonders what Watson’s sponsors think, given his sudden and apparent aversion to utilising the tool most useful to them.

Really???

 

Because a few guys say they would like to read a book by you, and he would rather not....

Awe.  That's cute that you slam my character, how predictable, let's hug it out.

It does not take much for a personal Shorty slam does it?  I think I've proven my point.

Lol. You've missed the mark by a mile on this one. Ha ha.

No...you didn't read my post. 

It was the cruelness and biting wit of the two word response that hurt my feelings so irreparably.

He managed, in one laconic swipe to cause more psychological harm than a hundred pages of pro Bubba, pro Christian and pro gun lobbyists could achieve.

The thought of the raised pinky as he elegantly tapped the send button with his index finger continues to haunt me - and it happened a quarter of an hour ago.

This literally made me laugh out loud and I choked on my damn energy drink. Wow.. :beer: 

EDIT: I re-read the thread and have no idea what's going on either, but this line caught me in the middle of a very monotonous 5 hour task and got me.

Shorty if it will cheer you up, please know that I will buy a copy your book as soon as it is released.  I'm hoping for a signed copy, but that may be a far fetched wish.  :beer:

post #124 of 146
I'll buy the book-but only if it's free. 😉
post #125 of 146
Will this book be guaranteed?

Finely crafted sir. :beer:
