Michigan high school athletic director goes "Southwest Airlines" on school's Girls' Golf Team
First, it was the fashion police at Southwest Airlines threatening to kick passengers off flights because a flight attendant didn’t like their skirts or shirts.
Now it’s Jamie Gent, athletic director at Haslett High School in Michigan. According to the Lansing State Journal, Gent confiscated the new Girls’ Golf Team’s matching spirit shirts printed with the slogan “Grip It and Rip It.”
Is Gent opposed to John Daly-related gear? (That slogan is his motto, after all.)
No. According to Gent, the phrase could be “taken two ways.” One way, apparently, carries a “sexual connotation.”
Oh fer cripes sake.
Now the politically correct thought police are out there telling kids what’s wrong and right based on the connotations bred in the fetid imaginations of twisted old folks. Just because Gent thinks something might be vaguely dirty, it’s banned.
Does the phrase only connote something sexual when emblazoned on teenaged girls, or does Gent think impure thoughts when Big John wears it, too?
But fine. The almighty athletic director is in charge. So be it. May I suggest banning golf altogether, then, as the sport is rife with double entendres, which, apparently, signal the downfall of Western Civilization. Here’s a partial list:
It’s in the hole.
Knock it stiff.
Putting from the fringe
A smooth stroke
Sneaking a putt in the back door
My caddy carries my bag and washes my balls.
Hole in one
Go for it.
Keep it in the short grass.
You get the idea. Geez, even Gent’s “taken two ways” could be taken two ways.
I’m surprised the school lets the team even touch those phallic clubs, not to mention the balls.

My balls have dimples.
Nothing better than a good up-and-down.
Never up, never in.
I also agree with the coach.
To many of the obviously liberal posters, the coaches edict may seem draconian.
What you libs seem to forget is that teachers and coaches are parental surrogates when school kids are under their tutelage.
Golf is sport and an extra curricular activity. If the girls don't like the rules, they can quit and go talk on their cellular phones.
Teachers playing the role of parents? Why, that's downright liberal talk right there!
You have things so backwards and are so profoundly ignorant that I won't even waste time refuting your inanity.
Love it when those on the right take offense at something so trivial and then manage not only to get indignant when the foolishness of their argument is pointed out to them.
The normal reaction they have when they find themselves unable to logically support their arguments, is to inevitably resort to name calling and stating their own superiority.
Stupid is as Dectra does. If someone doesn't even know what constitutes political correctness, one won't be able to prevail upon him with reason.
