How Arnold Palmer orders an Arnold Palmer drink

Arnold Palmer drinkEver wonder how the man who has a drink named after him orders his own drink at a restaurant? Of course you do.

Star-Ledger columnist Steve Politi found out the answer to the age old question.

Politi asked a waitress who served golf legend Arnold Palmer his special drink at the Masters and found out the answer.

“He leaned over and said, ‘I’ll have a Mr. Palmer.’ Then he winked,” the waitress said.

And there you have it. The man with enough style and character to create his own drink — half lemonade and half ice tea — orders his drink just like the boss that he is. You can’t top that.

Now that this question is answered, I hope to find out how many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop.

If you’re wondering how Palmer came up with the drink, this video explains it:

Arnold Palmer on cover of Tiger Woods video game (Picture)

EA Sports has decided to add golfing legend Arnold Palmer to the cover of the latest edition of Tiger Woods’ video game. The cover you see above is for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, which still doesn’t have a release date scheduled.

According to EA Sports, Palmer has actually been in the 2005 and 2006 versions of the game, and users will be able to play as him in this version as well.

Keegan Bradley, Bud Cauley, Stacy Lewis and Lexi Thompson are newcomers who will also be in the game.

Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler joined Woods on last year’s cover (in separate covers).

Tiger and Palmer seem to have a strong relationship. Tiger won the Arnold Palmer Invitational four straight times from 2000-2003, back-to-back in 2008 and 2009, and he won there in 2012 for his first tournament win in nearly three years.

LeBron James unveils ‘LeBronald Palmer’ Arnold Palmer inspired shoes (Picture)

When you’re an NBA champion and can no longer be labeled a choker, you can pull off footwear like this. LeBron James took to Instagram on Tuesday to unveil some new Arnold Palmer-inspired kicks he calls the “LeBronold Palmer 9 lows.” As you can see, they even come equipped with a picture of Arnie’s favorite drink in the sole of the shoe.

While basketball shoes like the LBJ MVP sneakers and those ridiculous dinosaur-looking ones Kobe launched around Christmas could only be accepted by the basketball community, the LeBronold Palmer’s may interest cribbage enthusiasts in retirement communities across Florida. Good for LeBron for trying to bridge the gap between the South Beach scene and the octogenarian population.
