As golf fans around the world ready themselves for The Masters, the conversation surrounding golf’s biggest tournament has officially shifted from debates over whether or not Tiger Woods is “back” to how ridiculous it is for Augusta National to have a list of phrases they’re banning from this year’s event.
Earlier in the week, as the sports world turned it’s attention from Villanova’s National Championship to The Masters, rumors began to emerge that the Augusta National Golf Club was actually planning to ban certain phrases from being spoken by fans at their event.
Just been told security staff at Augusta National have been handed a sheet with a list of sayings that are prohibited. I’m told “dilly dilly” is one of them. Patrons who shout out these phrases will be “removed” immediately. #themasters

Since the beginning of the 2018 golf season, a large part of the discussion has been centered around the question of how spectators should behave while walking the course during a PGA Tour event.
Back in February, Justin Thomas, the second ranked golfer in the world, unilaterally ejected a fan who yelled “get in the bunker” after his swing.

Then, Rory McIlroy, one of the sports’ brightest young stars, escalated the conversation when he complained to the media after the third round of this year’s Arnold Palmer Invitational that a fan heckled him throughout his round.
“There was one guy out there who kept yelling my wife’s name,” McIlroy said. “I was going to go over and have a chat with him, but, yeah, I don’t know, I think it’s gotten a little much, to be honest.”
McIlroy went on to suggest the outright ban of alcohol sales at future golf tournaments in order to improve fans’ behavior.
“I think that they need to limit the alcohol sales on the course, or they need to do something, because every week it seems like guys are complaining about it more,” McIlroy concluded.
And it looks like all the complaining by McIlroy and his friends has had the desired effect.
According to the folks over at Skratch TV, they’ve obtained the holy grail – the actual, official list of phrases banned as this year’s Masters.
If you’re caught daring to utter the phrase “Jimmy Carter eats peanuts” or happen to jokingly use the phrase “Dilly, Dilly” from the Bud Light ad campaign, the uppity elites who run The Masters will eject you, despite the hundreds of dollars you spent to stand in the sun all day watching other people play golf.
You can’t make this stuff up.
This is real life in 2018.
But have no fear, freedom-loving Americans who enjoy having a good time and aren’t walking around with a stick up your butts’, our hero has emerged to fight the tyrannical tendencies of those at August National.

Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.
Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.
The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.
College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
