Mickelson Dominates Krispy Kreme
By mustang6560 on 4/19/11
Anyone remember this picture of Phil Mickelson?
After winning The Masters last year, Phil decided to celebrate in style by going through a local Augusta, Georgia Krispy Kreme drive-thru wearing his green jacket. An employee captured this picture and it's been famous ever since.
Well, as you can imagine, Phil (and his legal team) was not very happy to hear that the local Krispy Kreme had used this picture along with the company logo for an in-store sign. It's reported that Phil's team paid a visit to the donut shop during the week of The Masters to make sure every last sign was removed or - as is the American tradition - he was gonna sue their butts off!
All is well that ends well. Krispy Kreme and their employees had some good laughs and the embarrassment for Phil is over.
I know I'm a few days behind on this particular story, but I wanted to make sure everyone had the opportunity to make a Homer Simpson joke. The first thing I thought about when hearing about Phil's trip to Krispy Kreme wearing his green jacket was Homer Simpson saying "mmmm, donut!"
If we ever see Phil at a less than optimal weight, at least we know who to blame - those darn glazed donuts!

There's no drive thru at 5 Guys :)

That's because they take the time to do the burgers correctly, vs. McDonalds, where speed and preservatives result in a hamburger that tastes like masking tape.

I would wear that jacket everywhere. Grocery store, washing the car, mowing the lawn......
