Being arguably the best basketball player of all time apparently means nothing when a country club wants you to follow their rules.
According to the NY Daily News, hall of famer Michael Jordan was banned from the La Gorce Country Club in Miami Beach after he refused to change out of his cargo shorts into “proper” golf pants or shorts.
Jordan, whose favorite pastime for years has been golfing, told ESPN Chicago that he was not about to interrupt his game over shorts:
“I’ve been there many times and no one told me a thing. Then all of a sudden they come to me on the 11th hole and say I can’t wear cargo shorts. Wow! The round is almost over and you want me to buy shorts now? Yeah, right!!”
“We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce,” his representatives said. “I guess it’s their loss – as MJ is a great golfer, and a great guest.”
Do you believe that shoes can make the man?
Well if you do, you are not alone. As recent research suggests that it is not only common to judge people by their footwear; but your judgements are probably right. Researchers at the University of Kansas say that people can accurately judge 90 percent of a stranger’s personality including a person’s general age, their gender, income, political affiliation, and other personality traits simply by the heel tap of his flip flop, boat shoe or sneaker.
Some may consider this junk science but as a expert people watcher, I have long suspected that this was the key to determining whether a dude was a catch or a dud – and I’m not just talking about junk size neither. So in an effort help the ladies weed out or find their perfect match, I have created a list of seven true-to-life personality traits that you can tell just by checking out what he is rocking on his feet:
Sure, you can’t really define what a grown a** man is in plain, black and white terms. However, I’m sure we can all agree that it’s pretty easy to point out the traits that prove a man’s overall maturity level is on the low low. We hear brothas say it often: “What!? I’m a grown a** man!” But you don’t just talk the talk, you have to walk it. But before someone gets their briefs all tied up in a knot, as usual, this list only pertains to some men, not all. So with that (and with all due respect), let’s get this thing started.
PS, there will be one for women coming soon too, so don’t get too comfortable.
We believe in equal opportunity so while had a few pieces of advice for the women who’ve found dating to be a bit of challenge, we also want to provide that same type of help to our brothers (Notice the “er”. It signifies all races.) in the single struggle. If you’re cuddling a little too close to your pillow at night, pretending it has breasts here a few potential problems you might need to fix.
Earlier this week I let go of something that had been attached to me for almost ten years. Although I frequently forgot it even existed because it had unconsciously become a part of me, it was a well thought out decision after questioning its age appropriateness. Yes, I finally let go of my belly ring. The small object placed neatly through my belly button had run its course and needed to be retired. This belly ring amongst other items have recently fallen into the ‘you know you’re too old to be wearing that’ category in my life; and while what a person chooses to wear is subjective, we all have those items that should have been excluded from our closets years ago.
Chances are if you think you’re too old to be wearing it, you probably are. As we approach our 20’s, 30’s and beyond, each cycle of our lives require the letting go of some items that we know we’re probably too old to still wear. While these items vary with age, check out five of the top items that you probably should have retired years ago.
