Video of the Week: Norv Turner? Aaaaaauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh!

Remember how I wrote that the San Diego Chargers were right to keep Marty Schottenheimer, then two days later they reversed course and blew it by canning him? Then the lunacy continued by hiring (SCREAM OF HORROR!) NORV TURNER. Mr. .380ish winning percentage. Well This video shows how Norval Turner (that’s his real name) got the job

But as Jerry garcia would say, there’s help on the way.

Now with new “Norv-away” your city can protect itself from all Norv’s spores, pollens and contagions, leaving your team free to choose a more suitable candidate. Oh!  And it has a fresh pine scent as well!

Great idea. Now can we get a can of “Fazio repellent?” Mr. “this course could host a U.S. Open” and “we’ve had enough redans routinely infests cities pipe dreaming about attracting a major golf championship. He promised to build the “Augusta of the _____ [insert name of region]”

As if that’s not bad enough, he dislocated his own shoulder patting himself on the back at Blarney Stone…err Turning Stone Casino during his pre-tournament presser, telling anyone still awake (or even there for that matter), how great he is. Sadly, a few stragglers aside, from a golf course architecture standpoint, he hasn’t been relevant since World Woods. Two words, folks…PGA National. (for those of you scoring at home, roundly vilified as the worst major venue in modern history. For the record, the 1987 PGA won by…drum roll please…Larry Nelson.)

If the Yankees can Joe Torre, they will have made the same mistake the Chargers did. Don’t it always seem to go you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone?
Hey, not for nothing, but do think you Norv Turner looks a heck of a lot like Tom Doak?
