Example No. 4,309 Why Golfers Will Do Anything For Their Sponsors
I have absolutely no idea why this picture was taken, but I'm happy for it. Really happy. It's Phil Mickelson riding a bicycle, carrying his driver.
It's obviously for Barclays, and who knows why they wanted this taken, but it makes me happy. I love Phil doing anything fairly goofy, especially with that grin he usually flashes, because it makes everything look just a little less serious.
Also, you'd have to pay me a pretty penny to be caught doing this ... Ahh, who am I kidding. I'd go Anthony Weiner on my Twitter account for a couple dozen Pentas at this point.
Update -- Reader Mike explains the bikes -- "Barclays sponsored those bike sharing programs that cities are putting in place. This is one of those bikes. I saw them over in London, and I think Boston is putting in a program too." Good to know!
