Michael Jordan banned from golf course...

For cargo pants.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/golf-d...638--golf.html



Quote:
Michael Jordan is good at a lot of things: basketball, building apparel empires, smoking cigars. But if there's one thing he absolutely needs to work on in the future, it's the way he dresses on the golf course.

A couple months after Jordan wore an awful getup to the Ryder Cup that caused a minor stir, the greatest player to ever lace up a pair of high-tops is back in the news again for, you guessed it, the way he was dressed on the course.

According to the New York Post, Jordan showed up at La Gorce Country Club a high-class course in Miami Beach, Fla. wearing a pair of cargo pants for a round of golf.

No big deal, right? On most occasions, wearing a pair of cargo shorts for a round at your local muni track is acceptable, but when you're playing at a swanky club in Miami, you're expected to wear a pair of khakis that don't have baggy pockets. Apparently Jordan didn't get the memo and showed up to the course sporting cargos anyway. That didn't sit too well with the membership.

"Michael was wearing cargo pants on the course," said a spy. Jordan's multipocketed pants were apparently against the dress code that, sources say, dictates that members and guests must be attired in a collared shirt and Bermuda shorts. But when 6-foot, 6-inch Jordan was offered a chance to change outfits, he demurred.

"He was given the chance to change but he didn't want to," a source said. The source added that Jordan, who was enjoying a round at the club with one of its members, played on anyway. The source added that members complained about Jordan breaking the rules and, "He won't be invited back."

A rep for Michael Jordan told the Post that, "Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change. We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. I guess it's their loss as MJ is a great golfer, and a great guest." The club did not respond for comment.

Honestly, I'm a little surprised the club didn't let Jordan's fashion faux pas pass. After all, we're talking about Michael freakin' Jordan and, as you can see from the photo, he's been known to wear cargo shorts on the course in the past. If he's done it before, chances are good he's going to keep doing the same thing in the future, because, well, he's Michael Jordan.

But hey, if a club has rules, everyone has to follow them even if the rule breaker happens to be a living legend. Next time bring a pair of Bermuda shorts to the course, Mike.

Why do people have to dress like total douches to hit a stationary ball and ride around on a cart for a few hours?

I don't see 4 popped collars, so no wonder he was banned.

LOL that's exactly what I was thinking. First of all, it's Michael Jordan. Secondly, who really gives a shit what someone is wearing at a golf course? Even if it angers you and you DON'T report it, you're still a giant douchebag. But then going ahead and reporting it....****ing kill yourself(ves). Golf....

Golf is much more fun when there are 3 balls to hit and it is total random luck if you hit the right one.

I actually like the game of golf to a degree. I get it. Being outside with freshly cut grass, hitting the absolute shit out of a little ball with a big giant metal club. It feels good. It's a shame I'm complete and utter dog shit at it, or else I would play the game myself. However, it's really the PEOPLE that can ruin it. Like others have already said, there are a lot of snobby, horribly dressed dipshits out there that care more about appearance and shit than just the game itself. It's sad and pathetic. It's like the people that listen to rap music in their cars and turn it up really really ****ing loud when they enter a QuikTrip parking lot. Most of those people don't really enjoy going deaf listening to that shit. They just want everyone else to NOTICE that they're listening to it. Makes em feel "cool" or whatever. I wish I had a rocket propelled grenade for those assholes to be honest...

I am not a country club guy, if for no other reason than I can't afford to be. That being said there are rules to sports and expectations in sports. If you don't like them then don't ****ing play them. Just because people like to follow traditions doesn't make them a bunch of spoiled, stuck up dickheads(even if they are such in other aspects of life).

The one thing I would say is that the people telling was a little stupid. The golf course seeing it themselves is one thing, telling on him is a little much. I just would have been annoyed by it and let it go.
Those shorts look like ass and are banned for a reason.

Your and idiot

A country club is established with rules, and all of the members pay a significant amount of money (not me, I can't afford it and don't want to be part of that lifestyle) to be part of that club with those rules. Jordan isn't above the rules, especially as a guest.
