I discovered this on Twitter this morning:
You are blocked from following @chambleebrandel and viewing @chambleebrandel’s Tweets.
Now if only he could block me from hearing his useless drivel on Golf Channel!
I just now noticed Chamblee blocked me, but my guess is he did it several weeks ago. After watching Chamblee on GC one day mentioning “Tiger Woods’s dominant 2000,” I sent him a message suggesting he contact Frank Nobilo to learn about the Rock Ishii ball.
I sent that same type comment to Arron Oberholser a couple of weeks earlier, and he responded good-naturedly, even saying he agreed the ball was a factor. Chamblee must have thin skin. Or maybe he has professional jealousy of Nobilo; perhaps I hit a sore spot.
Chamblee does seem like he’d be hell to work around. The kind who speaks emphatically even when he’s wrong. He’s been saying for years that the only thing wrong with Tiger Woods is that he doesn’t swing the same way after all his injuries and aging as he did when he was 24 years old. Brilliant analysis, eh? Kind of like saying Bo Jackson’s only problem post-injury was his running form.
This is a very sad day for Lanny H Golf. I feel as if we have been banished from golf’s inner sanctum. Without access to Chamblee’s tweets, I might forget that Only Tiger Matters, that Woods is still 24 years old, that the only thing holding Woods back are those awful, icky, mean ole swing coaches. Why, if only Tiger would listen to Brandel and — this is really simple, folks — swing like he did when he was young and uninjured, Tiger would be back!
