Those of us in the golf press dreaded this day would come: the day Bubba TV gets into the media tent and takes all of our collective jobs.
That day was Tuesday, in Shenzhen, China, where Bubba Watson worked his way into the press tent to interview Keegan Bradley before the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament. ASAP Sports has the transcript:
MODERATOR: First question from Bubba TV. BUBBA WATSON: As one of your biggest fans, the public would like to know what are you looking at when you're reading putts.
KEEGAN BRADLEY: Well, if I explained it to you, then I'd have to kill you. So I don't want to give away‑‑ I don't want to give you any of my secrets. BUBBA WATSON: Okay, look, I'm going to leave the room. You tell the rest of the world why ‑‑ what you're doing and whatever you're doing when you do that?
KEEGAN BRADLEY: Listen, it's the stink eye; don't get in the way of it. It will burn you.
BUBBA WATSON: So are you going to talk to Phil about him starting to do that?
KEEGAN BRADLEY: He was actually doing it today. BUBBA WATSON: Since he's left‑handed, does he go the other way?
KEEGAN BRADLEY: Yeah, he goes the other way. Thank you, Bubba. (Laughter).
MODERATOR: Now time for some legitimate questions.
Someday we'll all either work for Bubba TV, or not at all. This is the way our jobs end: Not with the joke, but the laughter.
