Andrew Magee Suspended
By Kickntrue on 2/9/09
Golf Channel's announcer Andrew Magee is suspended for a week after reading a t-shirt slogan he saw from a passer-by on air.
"I just saw a fan wearing a T-shirt that read, 'I got kicked out of the Boy Scouts for eating a brownie.'"Of course last year this time we were talking about Kelly Tilghman and her mouth, but this one is far more rediculous.
Look- I'm not clueless, I get that it's an oral sex joke, but seriously it's pretty obscure. I don't think a kid watching is going to get it, and if they do, they are far beyond your control as a parent to monitor what they hear. I think one of the comments from the source (awful announcing) said it well,
"I want to find the person who has the sense of humor to get this, while simultaneously lacking enough of a sense of humor to get offended."Seriously people. Get a grip.
Oh- in case you have a sense of humor, and lack tact and refinement- you can buy the shirt here.

They are forbidden to say anything that may be unusual during a golf broadcast. It may raise ratings.
He's suspended for a week... and he just happens to be playing at Pebble this week. Does that mean they can't interview him as a player?

Boy did this bring back some fond memories of what I call humor. Let me see, maybe 1962 or 63. Soupy Sales related that his girlfriend couldn't make a very good cherry pie but she sure could make a banana creme. As I recall he did about a week also.
