Bird Call Man interrupts Webb Simpson, Bob Costas (video)

A guy in a goofy hat bird-bombed Bob Costas as he attempted to interview Webb Simpson just after Simpson had won the U.S. Open on Sunday night.

The man, who bears a bit of resemblance to Tom Watson and delivered a performance far less nuanced than Cigar Guy’s, wandered in front of NBC’s cameras and did some Bruce Boudreau-like bird calls, then was hustled off by security. (Watch after the jump.)

“Enjoy the jail cell, pal,” Simpson quipped.

In fairness to Bird Call Man, Costas did mention birdies.
