What The Fucking Fuck!?!?!?!?!?

A dude just called in to a sports radio show I am listening to to complain about the US Open golf tournament’s treatment of today’s ticket holders. For those who aren’t aware, today’s first round started, and a few players played a few holes, and then it got suspended, and finally rained out. This ticket holder claims that (1) no one told the fans after it was suspended that the round was finally called until hours later, and allowed them to spend money on beer, food, etc, thinking it could start back up, and (2) today’s ticket holders were told that their tickets are no good tomorrow, even though it is the first round that is going to be played tomorrow, and (3) NO REFUNDS.

OUTRAGE!!!!!!11!!!ELEVENTY!111!!!!!! And I am not kidding. If I were that dude, I would be fucking livid! I’m NOT that dude, and I’m fucking livid!!!!!!!!

UPDATE:Some USGA douchenozzle announced this morning that yesterday’s tickets will be valid for play on Monday, if there *is* play on Monday. This is a decent bet, unless they manage to get four rounds in over three days, or if there is a playoff (which is not sudden death like in PGA tournaments, but a full round).

    Golf? Good god man..get a motherfucking grip! Nobody gives a shit about golf. Shit, next you’ll be whining about Wimbledon rainouts. Here’s a hint- outside having a good time knocking back some beers? You’re good.

    Total ripoff.
    Golf finally has a bit going for it. Ironically, one of the most discriminatory and elitist sports in history is now very accessible as well as incredibly fair from the fan standpoint in this respect—earnings are always related to performance, year after year. Sure there is a handful who make serious endorsement money, but largely there are no guarantees, no contracts. You do well, you make money. You suck, you lose the privileges to play next year.
    Of course, therefore, the USGA has to preserve and propagate the historical assholitude that golf is rapidly losing. The USGA, though a bit saner in recent years, is filled with egomaniacal shitheads who are stuck in the 18th century.
    I know that they have a logistics problem in that they may not be able to accommodate a 100K people on the course tomorrow—but they could’ve easily refunded the money to anyone who bothered send in a valid ticket or stub. Stupidity born out of arrogance.

    OT but what the fuck is going on with Mr. Physioprofs’ fucking Yankees, losing 2 games in a row to the worst fucking team in the history of baseball (at least since the 61 Mets)?

    CPP,
    The USGA douchenozzle did announce that, but he also couldn’t stop whining about how they need to tighten up the language on the tickets so there is no ambiguity in the future etc. The fucker’s concern is STILL not to the right thing by the customers but rather to take his lawyers to task and see that there is no possible legal grounds for the customer to seek redress next time. What a total asshole.

    This shit happened to me too one day at the Masters a few years ago. I ponied up some serious cash for tickets on a Saturday and low and behold it poured down on us right at 8am. They cancelled play for the day and told us that our tickets would not be honored for Sunday nor would we receive a refund. Being the surly jackass that I was, we preceded to hurl half empty beer bottles (which we snuck in by the way) at USGA officials before hauling ass out of Augusta National before getting arrested.

    This happens in tennis all the time. I went to Wimbledon a decade ago all but 1 game the day i went got rained out (it was barely raining too). No apologies, and definitely no refunds. Utter waste of 20 pounds and 3 hours waiting in line.
