SHOTY competition is officially over. Thanks for playing, everyone-not-named-markie_farkie
 
2012-08-20 12:32:13 PM  
Fantastic, Subby!

That said, ANGC is a private club. If it doesn't want to admit women, it shouldn't have to or be expected to. Have anyone ever noticed that men have never biatched about not being allowed to join woman-only clubs?

Excellent job by Augusta National. By announcing this now, they have nearly 8 months before Billy Payne will have to discuss it at his annual pre-Masters press conference. By then it's old news, just they way they like it.

I just hope Martha Burk is somewhere without phone service today, nobody needs to hear from her, since she probably delayed this at least a few years with her temper tantrum of 10 years ago.

OriginalGamer: What will their handicap be though? ;-)


Being a woman?

Thanks for the guffaw, subby!

consider this: Does this mean I can join the all women fitness club and enroll in the women's college?


The 90s called. They want their false equivalency/Radio Host Talking Point back.

OriginalGamer: Awesome headline....

Besides the fact they're women? :) j/k

From what I remember they want members to have a handicap of 18 or less. And they have to be able to walk the course. No golf carts.
 
2012-08-20 12:34:36 PM  
Heh, nice headline. I'm bettin IBM's CEO didn't get admitted yet because of pride. Augusta didn't want to seem like IBM forced them, so they chose two others to break the mold first.
 
2012-08-20 12:34:43 PM

Hmm. You're right. Interesting. Nobody's ever made that point before.

No. I get this shiat in my inbox. That's what Newsflash does, and I don't think guys playing with balls is particularly newsworthy.

And in response to your childish taunt:

"WAHHH! I MUST DEFEND SPORTS BECAUSE THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE INTERESTING OR INTELLIGENT ABOUT ME AND IT DEFINES ME AS A MAN! WAAAHHH!"

Oh, and for your information, my teenage boxing record was 18-3-1. I was undefeated on the fencing team in college. And I kicked ass at little league playing third base until I got in a fight and took a crowbar to the back, so fark you.

I could probably still kick your ass in Olympic-style fencing, which is a hell of lot more of a man's sport than a bunch of overpaid pussies playing with a basketball.

pisceandreamer: Great day for rich women.


This. Good for them, but this isn't a victory for women's rights or anything. This is just confirmation that if you have money and are well connected, you can get whatever you want.

I think you mean advanced it by ten years by pointing out CBS, a company that rents public airwaves, was in bed with such a backwards company.

I would but the whole thing with a crowbar and my Olympic style fencing career is too traumatic to revisit.

Would you really want to go in to a woman-only club? it would probably smell like tampons.

/Used to sleep in the ladies restroom at work. It was the last place anyone would look for me and they had an awesome couch and a table full of magazines. If it wasn't for the smell, it would be better than my apartment at the time.
 
2012-08-20 12:37:47 PM  

croesius: I knew this day wouldn't be far off when they let Tiger in. Kind of surprised they let one of the first women in be "of color", I woulda thought that combination would be another few years in the making. Maybe the old boys' club is coming around!


To be fair, Ms. Rice is about as white as a black person can be.

/except for chappelle in that sketch

No, I meant what I said, thanks. CBS has no power over ANGC's membership decisions, and aired The Masters with ZERO commercials for two years after Burk went nuts because that's what the club told them to do.

Wait until you see the back of Rice and Moore's new green jackets.

Me and a buddy were behind a foursome of older guys golfing, they all t off at the whites but one as he walked up to the reds, or what most refer to the ladies t. We both watched, as one guy whispered in another guy's ear, and just say his shoulders shrugged. We joked about it all day, if a guy wants to hit from the reds it's his gotdamn prerogative.

They have no power except for not dealing with a backward company at all.

I suppose this is cool, but who'd want to be around those fascist old pigs anyway? Smh.

JosephFinn: They have no power except for not dealing with a backward company at all.


Which was never going to happen. And even if it did, the club would have found a new network partner in about 15 seconds, and it would only take them that long because they still use rotary phones there.

But then how are you supposed to get drunk and crash into things?

So, besides Rice, how many other war criminals are members at Augusta?


This one needs a troll button ;)
