Tiger needs to get a glass stomach so you can see where you are going.

Rory Sabbatini channeling Patrick Ewing... Priceless.

If you're gonna call out Tiger Woods in front of the media, then be a man and take it when people call you out on your predictions. What a moron this Sabbatini guy is.

Sabbatini would be funny except that he gave the PGA and the organizers a black eye with his actions.

Don't get so excited, guys.

David Feherty got it right when he said Rory was absolutely correct when he said that Tiger was "as beatable as ever." Woods IS as beatable as he ever was.

Which is the same thing as saying Tiger is very difficult to beat.
David was being facetious, of course, but the conclusion was on the money

I have no idea what the first comment means.

Anyway, Chris...right on.

Jeff White,

I also have no idea what Rick's comment means.

He posts quite a few similarly incoherent comments. Maybe he'll have an explanation for this one.

Alex, you could use a glass stomach of your own to see where you are going.

Rick,

OK. I'll bite. What's the punch line?

Rory is not nearly the villain we make him out to be, nor the sot that many of us consider him to be. He is a competitor, and is trying to break down Tiger in as many ways as possible. I do not consider one or two comments as a relentless and foolish onslaught on the Cat from Cypress. Where is it written that all should bow to the King and shrink from the heat of the limelight? Power to Rory and all who attempt to reign!

Rory keeps thing exciting. Just because it's golf doesn't mean you can't have a little competitive trash talking.

I'm sure Tiger likes it more than anyone.

Alex, there is no "punch line". It's a self explanatory comment. It refers to having your head up your ass.

Rick,

Thanks. It may have been self-explanatory to a young fellow like you.

Jeff and I just don't get that type of humor.

And your age is?

Sorry Rick, I didn't get that punch line either. so I asked my boys about that and they'd never heard that before either.
boys ages 25 29 and 32. Not exactly ancient so they might have heard of it. Two of them live in Calgary, the heart of American commerce in Canada. So if it was an American thing, they'd have heard it there, I'm sure.

Colloquialism ?

I can't believe we are continuing to discuss this. It's not regional. A google search of "glass stomach" and "head" will give you a number of examples of it's use.

And I'm 36. I've lived all over the US.

Rick,

I'm approaching 65, and I agree that it's not much to talk about.

In my firm, we have about 60 people working at any one time. Their ages range from 25 to me at the high end. None have ever heard that expression. Neither have my sons or sons-in-law who are ages 40 to 28.

This is the hip, cosmopolitan city of Chicago, so that if it isn't regional, it is virtually unknown.

I'm originally from 100 miles outside Chichago and spent 9 years in the Quad City region with many long weekends in the Windy City. I run in medical circles but have a brother-in-law who is an attorney in the QCA so I'll have to ask if he's ever heard of the expression.

At 65, you probably have heard of it but just forgot...... ;-) Couldn't resist.

Rick,

Sorry to pile-on, dear fellow.

I run in medical circles as well. First time I ever heard of that one.

I was a Marine as well. And as Alex will attest, you hear just about everything, b/c you have every race, creed, color from across the country represented. Never heard it uttered before.

I would be willing to offer assistance in providing colorful retorts, should you need it. Marines have developed many inventive and humorous "off-color" phrases.

One popular phrase from my Marine Corps days...

"Wow, Rory really shot the brown-star cluster on Sunday, didn't he".

If you can figure that one out, you get a gold star for day. Alex, you aren't allowed to answer.

Like I said, any google or yahoo search for "glass stomach" and "head" will show that it's not some obscure reference.

And I prefer the term "star crimper" over "brown-star cluster". It's more obsure but always makes me chuckle.
