Approves...sort of.

Howard is a shell of his popularity, kind of an afterthought now.  After he re upped at Sirius, cut back to three days a week and then a two week vacation every other month, he got lame.

He's got Jason Dufner on right now. His interviews are as good as ever.

I'll just quote myself from yesterday's thread:

As for the other issue from the weekend, the dipshiats yelling after every tee shot.  Listen, if you still think shouting "baba booey" is funny (as if it ever was), you're a farking child.  Go away.

It's not funny.  You're not funny or original.  You're dumb.
 
2013-08-13 09:47:49 AM  
I can't believe that "Baba Booey" is still a thing.
 
2013-08-13 09:51:17 AM  
I'm sorry all your favorite radio personalities aren't as successful as you'd like them to be.
 
2013-08-13 09:52:16 AM  
That's golf for you, always on the cutting edge of society. Just think, another 50 years or so, and they might allow women and ethnics to play at all the courses!

As far as the content of the article, I have a hard time working up empathy for professional athletes who demand complete and total silence while they try to execute their swing. fark off and adjust.

It's a little easier when you look at the post below yours and consider the amount of pride Stern listeners have in being Stern listeners.

Did Howard go back on vacation after interviewing Dufner?
 
2013-08-13 10:07:31 AM  
Baba Booey? What year is it? Should I be yelling "Sock it to me!" at canasta tourneys?

And when he's there its basically just so people can pimp whatever movie/show/album they have coming out, he's not even the best interviewer on Sirius any longer. That honor goes to Ron Bennington now, he takes dull, bland celeb interviews and makes them funny or interesting.

And if you yell shiat out on a golf course then you should be killed on the spot.

He's one of the best interviewers in the business, but he doesn't press as hard as he used to.

Oh, I'm aware of it. My friend is a chronic Stern listener and always feels the need to bestow the virtues of how awesome he is.

Howard Stern listeners are like the Juggalos of the talk radio world.

I'm definitely no pro, but I prefer it to be quiet when I tee off and slice my ball into the woods. I pay enough to play, so I want the best possible conditions.

That said, you must admit that the shouters say the dumbest things imaginable. I'm sick of hearing it.

Played a private course Sunday. No ladies locker room, and the mens looks like an upscale hotel bar.

They do have women members, but they're not allowed on the course at all on Wednesday, and only after 11 on the weekend. Such is progress!

I think those are the die hard, juggalo-type fans.

People who were "normal" fans or just listened but didn't necessarily drink the Kool-Aid (or Flavor-Aid, if you want to be accurate) realize that Stern's show has gone to shiat since 2010/2011, and is now basically an hour of America's Got Talent talk, followed by one or two bland interviews that eat up the remaining 2-3 hours, and that's it.

He's now a rich old motherfarker who wants to be accepted by the America's Got Talent audience, and has changed his show to reflect that.

He's still on? That's cool. I don't have Sirius but I used to listen to Ron and Ron all the time in the 90s. They broadcasted right down the street from me, met them a few times. Cool guys. Fed too.

Yeah, Ron and Fez are on the Opie and Anthony channel middays after O&A.

GoldSpider: People in this thread care so little about Howard Stern, they felt compelled to post in it.


It's an issue that has been discussed on the sports tab and in golf threads for some time now.  Stern's involvement is tangential to that conversation, and specific to this one since some of his fans have decided to demonstrate how loyal/stupid they are at recent golf tournaments.

Though I guess it's possible I'm not getting the extremely subtle humor of shouting "baba booey" at the top of my lungs.

I haven't heard Stern since the 90s does he really still have strippers on the show?

"Wow, these strippers are so hot. True, this is radio and you can't see them but trust me, they're hot."

Compelling radio.

^^^^^
This.  I have Sirius in my car and listened to him pretty regularly up to that point.  I think it started to go downhill after Artie tried to kill himself, but after the new contract, it was never "fresh" radio.  It was getting to the point that I'd get in the car right as they went to a break and they would come back for about 30 seconds of reruns as I was pulling into my parking space.  It's more productive/entertaining to listen to Mad Dog Radio or ESPN now.

Nope.

I described an average show a bit upthread... Starting the morning off with an hour of AGT talk, followed by a couple of neverending, bland interviews, then some news to give him an opportunity to say "Anything else, Robin?" all the way though, and it's time to go home for two weeks!
 
2013-08-13 12:35:55 PM  
I'm a long time Stern listener and IMO, this yelling bababooey thing is played out and has been for a long time.  It might have been funny when someone did it the first time, since it's such a taboo to yell stuff when a golfer is swinging, but now it's just bandwagon bullshiat.

That said, I've never been a hardcore fan. All I care about is whether the show is interesting. I don't care about Howard's life, I don't go to events, I just listen. Maybe hardcore fans find this shiat interesting. Who knows.
 
2013-08-13 12:43:34 PM  
His show got a little worse when Jackie left... then it got a little worse when he got divorced... then it got a little worse when he got married... then it got a little worse when I stopped listening to it.

Indeed, Artie was a great personality on the show.  I should have cancelled my Sirius long ago, if only there was a way to keep them from harassing me every two weeks trying to get me to re-up.

Except Fez came out of the closet after finally admitting what everyone knew in the 90s and now he's crazy. Barely speaks anymore, thinks everything slightly anti-gay to be the worst person and hates him for being gay. Most of the listeners have known/thought he was gay and never cared.

What's telling is this has 30 or so responses which is nothing for most threads and nobody is really defending his tired show.

The article's author fails to understand that when there are a bunch of idiots in the gallery all hoping to be first to shout something stupid after a shot is hit some will end up shouting while a player is taking his shot.  It happened on 17 to Jim Furyk at the PGA, and he gave a true look of death to that idiot after hitting his shot.

People shout in football and baseball because in most cases they are at least 50 yards away from the player in a noisy stadium.  In golf the fans stand within a few feet of the players, and that only works when folks respect the "silence" rule, or when the fans are moved off the course and into stands (the Phoenix Open being a good example of the latter).

The PGA needs to boot the shouters; the alternative is to have all the fans relegated to grandstands far away from the holes and if that happens golf will take a much bigger hit than it will by excluding a few shouting idiots.

So, what's acceptable?  Little golf claps, 10 seconds after every shot?   What about "Get in the hole!"?  Acceptable?  What about "Rutabaga"?

It's the PGA's tour, I think they can exercise discretion to remove fans who are disruptive without setting objective standards.  The line between enthusiastic fan and douchebag attention whore is a pretty bright one.
