Erin Andrews phallic mic - Nice play Fox Sprots

Erin Andrews phallic mic – Nice play Fox Sprots audio crew!

Yesterday’s Super Bowl was entertaining on a few levels.  First, thanks to my brother-in-law for pointing out how phallic the microphone sideline reporter Erin Andrews was using and posting this pic to Facebook.  As a former audio engineer and recording studio owner, I’ve never seen a microphone windscreen shaped like that.  Great joke by the Fox audio crew.  Nicely played Fox Sports!

Sometimes my golf game is like the performance the Denver Broncos put on Sunday. From their first snap, which went over Peyton Manning’s head and eventually ended up as a safety for the Seattle Seahawks, Denver was far from on their A game.  I looked at it like shanking the first shot out of bounds in a big tournament and never recovering.

So for fun I posted this question on my Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus social networks:

What is the golf equivalent to the Denver Broncos performance in the Super Bowl?

The responses are quite entertaining:

Tiger missing a cut.

That would be like Tiger shooting a pair of 80s at Augusta to miss the cut.

A little more research: Tommy Armour made a 23 on a par-5 at the 1927 Shawnee Open.

Scott Holm

Most rounds by John Daly back a few years ago

The most popular analogy seemed to be Van De Velde’s meltdown in the British Open at Carnoustie.  Not sure that’s the best analogy as he blew the lead and should have won.  Denver never seemed to get off the tee and never had the lead.
