Spencer Levin Will Not Be Reading This Blog Post
Or anything on the Internet, for that matter. That's because Spencer Levin has the technological desire of a wombat. Asked about the uplifting nature of the masses after Kyle Stanley's collapse at Torrey Pines, Levin said it would be impossible for groups to do the same for him since he looks at technology the same way Phil Mickelson looks at layup yardages.
"I've got an email, but I haven't checked it in about eight years," Levin said on Wednesday. "I think I dropped my cell phone in the water or whatever somewhere [last winter], and then I just haven't bothered to get a new one. I have no desire to."
Ten bucks says his e-mail is something like firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone want to bet?
It is one of the beauties of all professional sports; the differences in personalities. For every Bubba Watson that replies to basically anything you send the guy on Twitter ("thanks" "yep "thx"), you have youngsters like Spencer would couldn't care less about being on the computer and just wants to go out and play and hang out.
Honestly, we could probably use more young people like Spencer, who still know how to enjoy their lives without their faces stuck directly behind the glow of a device screen (I'm the most guilty of anyone about this).
