Arnold's Army Lost Its Leader
I've played golf since I was a kid, and was fortunate to see the late Arnold Palmer play when he came through the Chicago-area for tournaments. He played with style, and won more tournaments than anyone else except for Jack, Tiger, and Sam Snead (I think.) I often hear people expressing bafflement as to why anyone would watch golf, since it's just some guys chasing a little white ball around a course. I don't have time to get into why that is so wrong-headed, so let me say that I guess Miles Davis was just a guy who just blew spit into some metal tubing. Farewell, Arnie! Hopefully they have golf in heaven, and you have a 29-year-old body again.
