Cool News From 12 Years Ago: Somebody Wants a Golfing Boy Band

05.19.11 7 years ago 5 Comments

Hey guys, check it out, I just got a job writing for Cracked magazine. A guy named Bubba wants to get together a bunch of PGA golfers and form the first all-golfer boy band. Wait, this is real?

“I’ve got two words for you. Before I tell you those two words, I’m going to build it up,” Watson joked. “I should be in the media.”

Then, he gave the media just a little taste of what to expect.

“There’s going to be a group of guys, and the two words are Boy Band. I’m going to leave it at that. And it involves Ben, me and maybe a couple others. But Boy Band.”

Did Tiger Woods cheating on his wife break whatever mystical seal existed that was ket young white golfers from losing their minds and coming up with terrible ideas for things on the Internet? Ben Crane pulls a Brian Wilson and all of a sudden everybody is a wacky guy just tryin’ t’have fun.

Anyway, alternate titles for this blog post included “Drive the Ball ‘N Sync a Putt,” “I Didn’t Know They Had Golf Tournaments In O-Town,” “Bubba Watson Golfed a Plus One” or “Bubba Watson Should Take Five Strokes,” “Watson Slices Ball 98 Degrees” and “A New Edition of Golf Digest.” None of them should be typed, but the O-Town one is pretty funny. I tried to work “LFO” into an “LOL” or “LMAO” thing, but it didn’t work, just like LFO.
