Oh Phil, You Jokester You!
If there is one thing Phil Mickelson is, it's funny. Okay, maybe more than that, but he is funny, right? Don't we hear all the time about how many jokes he can dish out at a time, and how he's basically the Daniel Tosh of the PGA Tour? Wrong again? Oh well.
He did make a funny after Padraig Harrington got disqualified last week at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship that the Irishman said helped him get past the rules infraction. After a caller phoned in the penalty Padraig made, Mickelson consoled the three-time major winner in the locker room.
“Phil Mickelson in the locker room that afternoon came in, he said he thought it was very unfortunate and thought it was, the whole incident was a terrible thing to happen.
“And he felt really bad for bringing in the phone call.”
BOOM! BAM! GOT 'EM! THAT'S ALL, FOLKS! HOLLA!
Phil Mickelson, just laying 'em down without any idea what these other people are feeling! See, he said that HE, Phil Mickelson, was the one that brought the call in to get the other dude, Padraig Harrington, disqualified. It's funny because it probably would have happened three years ago!
