News is breaking that legendary golfer Arnold Palmer has died.

I remember when I was little and all we had was a black and white TV set, my dad loved watching professional golf, so I knew of Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Palmer even as a boy.

Rest in peace, Arnie, and thanks for the memories.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I guess you could say he's in the clubhouse after his final round, with an 87.

Very sad, but what an amazing life! I was following golf when he was still competitive during the late 60's and early 70's and you rooted for Arnie every tournament. One of the most likeable and charismatic athletes we've ever had.

I'm too young to remember much of arnold palmer's actual play, but I do remember a joke my parents used to tell titled "Jesus and Moses play golf". Here it is, as found on the internet:


Quote:

One day Moses and Jesus were playing golf. They were at the tee of a beautiful par 3, with a lake right in the middle of the fairway. Moses selects a 5 iron, tees-up his ball and swings. His ball sails very high and lands in the middle of the lake. He mutters to himself and tees-up a second ball, this time selecting a 4 iron. This shot was perfect; landing right in the middle of the green.

Jesus pauses for a moment to ponder his club selection. "Hmmmm..... Arnold Palmer would use this," he says as he picks up a 5 iron.

"But, Jesus. My 5 iron shot ended up in the lake. You should use a 4 iron!"

"Nope. Arnie would use a 5," insisted Jesus.

So, Jesus swings hard and alas his shot ends up in the middle of the lake too. Jesus strolls over to the lake and walks out on the water to retrieve his ball. As Jesus is walking on the water trying to locate his ball a foursome comes up to the tee, sees a man walking on the water and one of them exclaims, "Who does he think he is? Jesus Christ?"

"No," explains Moses, "He is Jesus Christ. He thinks he's Arnold Palmer."

Incredibly, the season premiere of The Simpsons featured (among other things) jokes involving Arnold Palmer. Could that have been ANY worse-timed?

I can't stand any variety of iced tea. Otherwise, I know the perfect way to raise a glass and offer a toast to his memory.

Well, okay. I don't dislike all varieties of iced tea:
