British Gentleman Invades U.S. Open Trophy Presentation, Channels Inner Kanye West


There’s sort of a disturbing trend of big moments ruined by unusal occurrences, and today’s U.S. Open Ceremony was no exception. As Bob Costas interviewed winner Webb Simpson, one guy decided it was time to do…bird calls?

I’m really not sure what he was doing, but he was unceremoniously yanked right off the green as the ever-smooth Bob Costas shot him an amazed look and continued interviewing an amused Simpson.

This narrowly edges out Kanye’s “Imma let you finish” interruption of Taylor Swift for oddest interruption at the moment of great achievement I can remember. Got more? Tell us in the comments.

    I usually skip the awards ceremony so I was about to turn the TV off.  But something told me not to.  So glad I listened to the “inner voice.”    I’m still laughing……..

    Webb buzz redefined.

    Kinda looks like Luke Donald.

    As a media website, it might be a good idea to discuss how poorly NBC handled covering the guy winning the tournament during the coverage.  Maybe the worst I have ever seen a major championship covered.  The final pairing, Hossler, of course Woods, Phil, and anyone who walked on to 18 green was more important than Simpson the whole day.

    There’s nothing better than a little nonsense to deflate the  pomposity and false significance of a golf tournament that most of us will forget the name of the winner in a few days. It was the only laugh in four days of grimness.

    What is Michael Scott doing in the background??   

  • Bill

    Where was San Francisco PD who were, otherwise, so visible up to this moment? It’s fortunate the bloke meant Webb Simpson no harm, like with a whipped cream pie or worse!

  • DC

    not really….they stopped covering Phil and Tiger during the fourth round…You saw Tiger every once and a while, but Simpson was shown just as much as everyone else in contention (not including the marquee final group of course)

    i noticed he had a BOEING Logo on his jacket?
