Haven’t Learned Your Lesson Yet…

Posted: September 7, 2012 in Just Throwing This Out There

So I love Michael Jeffery Jordan.  Best athlete I’ve seen in action.  Unfortunately, he is probably one of the worst talent evaluators and NBA front office leader ever.  This guy goes all out being greatest or worst.  Anyway, I saw this story about MJ being tapped to be an adviser and motivator for the Ryder Cup team and could not help but think of several questions.  First, why would you need MJ to advise you on anything sports related?  The Charlotte Bobcats are the worst franchise in the NBA and Jordan is a huge part of that problem with “yes men” unable to run the basketball operations in a sound manner.  I would be more accepting if this was basketball but a golf adviser?  Just drop that misnomer because it isnt happening.  He isn’t telling Tiger Woods “hey I know you are a pro at this but if I were playing this hole, I’d use a 4-iron.”

Some people suggest it won’t make a difference (no stuff Sherlock) but his presence should add some positive motivation for the team.  That’s pathetic.  Just say we want to have one of the most recognizable faces in sports around so people will watch and we won’t be a bunch of middle aged boring white dudes and Tiger.  If you can’t be motivated by facing the Europeans after they have won 6 of the last 8 Ryder Cups then you don’t need to be on the team.  Go out and kick the crap out the Euros and celebrate like in 1999 – people will care so much more if you just win!
