It's Good To Be King: Arnie Smooches Kate

We knew from Doug Ferguson earlier in the week that Arnold Palmer was positively giddy about getting to meet 20-year-old SI Swimsuit Issue cover woman Kate Upton.

Well he certainly got to meet her. And kiss her he did. And I'm sure his left arm was behind his back.

Cori Britt of Arnold Palmer's staff posted this on Twitter:


And she received an umbrella pin, making her an official member of Arnie's Army.

Also, The King visited with the far less attractive Darren Rovell on a Good Morning America appearance to plug his drink and reveal his preferred ratio of lemondate to iced tea.

Kate Upton thought bubble "omg I have to stand here and smile while this old man smooches me, the things I do for publicity"

Rovell is the worst. Not up for debate.

It's good to be king and have your own world
It helps to make friends, it's good to meet girls
A sweet little queen who can't run away
It's good to be king, whatever it pays

About 20 years ago, I saw Ted Williams meet Dwight Gooden when Gooden was still young and strong.

I remember thinking, "if Ted were 50 years younger, Gooden would feel about 2 inches tall."

Not sure Kate would feel 2 inches tall, but I trust it would've been a totally different dynamic.

Never forget the time Arnie winked at my wife as we passed between green and tee at Geezer Tour event. Dawg!!!

SI must have some pretty talented photoshoppers in their art dept.

She's a hottie, but compared to her usual pictorials, she looks (dare I say) almost ordinary.

Willie, less creepy than Arnold does in the first!

johnny, go check out the Cat Daddy video she filmed for Terry Richardson....I think you'll get it then.

IMO..... The Iced Tea/Lemonade (50/50) drink marketed under Arnies name currently is just flat AWFUL tasting.

Whether it's from a can, plastic bottle or [lastic jug.

I live in Western PA and a couple of local IT/Lemonade blends are light years better tasting that what Arnies has licensed...... Sad but true.
