Earlier this month, Ian Poulter blasted spectators who yell out "Baba Booey" and "mashed potatoes" and the like during players' backswings, calling them "bellends" and expressing a desire to "tazer every muppet who shouts out something stupid." Golf fans naturally took this as a challenge.
It might be the most commonly spoken phrase in the history of televised baseball: "This copyrighted telecast is presented by authority of the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball, &c., &c." But do you really listen? Padres color commentator Mark Grant is betting you don't.
Ian Poulter had a rough go of it at the PGA Championship—not as rough as Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson did, but bad enough that he was well out of contention on Sunday. This has allowed him ample time to air out fans who yell things at golf tournaments, and get a response from Howard Stern.
