Mandarin Boo Boo

Yesterday was Round 2 of Season 2006/2007 of my golf tournament. Since it was the new season, we were given shirts and stuff. This season's golf shirt is a bladdy disaster (see picture). Orange collar with stripe over a white background. The kick in the balls is that the tournament logo on the sleeve is PINK. Wah lan eh......

All participants are "strongly encouraged" to wear the tournament shirt on competition day. Given it was damn fugly, I flatly refused to wear it (which explains the plastic bag being intact).

However, not wanting to flout the rules of not wearing the tournament shirt, I showed up yesterday in a tournament shirt dated back to Season 2001/2002.

Besides, it wasn't 100% cotton (got polyester) which means that the fabric material would be damn lousy at absorbing sweat.

As I arrived at the check-in area, I was met with one of the organising committee member (OCM).

OCM: 怎么没有穿队服?

JayWalk: 不吸汗.

OCM: HAR??? 你怎么可以说这一种话来了呢? Blah blah blah blah.......

He must have gone on a tirade for a good minute and a half about me being ungrateful since the shirt was a sponsorship of goodwill from the team captain before I realised what the fuss was all about.

I pointed to his sweat-dripping chin

JayWalk: OI! 是 "不吸汗" 啦! 不是 "不稀罕" 啦!

OCM: OH!!! Paiseh paiseh......

JayWalk: Nin nah ma eh chao turtle*.......

* Had to scold that coz he Ta1wanese don't understand mah. Arh bor, lim peh confirm tio hoot one.

For those who are curious about how I fared? I came in at a dismal 46th out of 90+ participants. This in golfer's term is known as LOFT....

is Michelle Wie under this LOFT scheme as well? lol..

Gary: Using another country's line may be a workable idea but definitely too expensive as a viable long time solution.

It is not worth the IDD money just for the sake of read and writing blogs right?

Well, all I can say is that there are other ways to get around it.

As for Michelle Wie, you are being too critical lah. She went down due to heat exhaustion and I know what it feels like to be playing in temperatures about 40 degrees Celsius. I just did last Thursday. Just my luck that it was the hottest day of the year to have a tournament.

no lah.. haha.. but michelle wie want to make the cut for the men PGA championship.. but time and time again, she couldnt make it.. donno what to say about her the way she project herself to the media, "i want to play in the men's league!"

Gary: What to do, she is good for TV rating and that is where a big chunk of the revenue come from.
On one hand, we ask why is she doing in a Men's tour (and replacing the spot of a rightful man golfer) when she has her own Ladies Tour? We also ask that if the women were to seek gender equality, then why didn't they allow men to sign up for the ladies tour?

The crux of this matter really isn't about equality among the sexes. More rather, it that women in men's tour would boost revenue.

It is solely a commercial justification and nothing more.
