Morning Look: The End of the Pink Shirt
When I think back on the 2008 AT&T National, the first and second and fourth things I'll remember will be the Steve Marino gallery of enthusiastic and flat-out fun fans. I don't care if a few people didn't appreciate their behavior; you could hear their whoops from literally all over that golf course, and it breathed a tiny flickering burst of hops-flavored life into an event that was clearly missing something from the year before.
Anyhow, in the interest of completeness, here's a final update on Brandon Stacy, the particularly outspoken Marino friend-ish person who had pledged to wear the same clothes to every round of the tournament. When I saw him outside the clubhouse after Marino's round on Saturday, his old pink polo was gone, replaced by a pink Congressional shirt.
"Some guy gave me $100 for my shirt," Stacy said. "He saw him on TV and he said, 'I want that shirt.' "
Whether or not this is true, I could not say, but in my memory, heck yeah it's true. Heck yeah some random guy saw sweaty Brandon Stacy on TV, and offered him $100, a Sunday pass to Congressional and a pink Congressional shirt in exchange for one nasty, filthy, reeking pink polo.
And was I the only one to think of Stacy when the pink-shirted Anthony Kim went on to win the event? Yeah, probably I was.
