Arnold Palmer is the second person I’ve met who has a drink named after them. The first is Shirley Temple. The golf legend was born today. Do you wonder if he goes into a restaurant and orders “my drink.” If anyone knows, drop us a line. We love useless trivia (as evidenced by all that we share with you each day).
Also born today: baseball great Roger Maris, actors Ryan Phillippe, Colin Firth, singer Jose Feliciano and rocker Joe Perry of Aerosmith.
