Well my equipment won't let me see You Tube. So I can't see the clip for myself, but I can't understand why this would be such a big deal myself
We all know Tommy talks to everyone (usually loudly)--himself, his box, the fans, the umpire. Thankfully he normally talks at these times in German so I can't understand a word he says! Of course, he does talk to the umpire in English and some of those exchanges get pretty interesting
But since this topic came from GM in the Forum I would say they were using it just to make fun of Tommy. Most posters in GM do not like Tommy at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think this particular incident was cool as hell and is really no "instrument" to mock Tommy. He's pretty funny (in case you understand him, of course), and more importantly, he goes out there after his rant and hits the line with a backhand winner (I left that one in on purpose
), and in the end wins this thing. This was just badass!
I put this video up some time ago, here
you can find the original link, maybe that works for you. The YouTube version has subtitles, but maybe you find a translation somewhere else.
