Do you kids remember Jim McMahon? You should — he was THE cocky, accomplished college/pro quarterback a decade before Johnny Manziel was even born.
Nearly 20 years after retiring from the NFL, McMahon is still walking around giving no fucks. He’s playing the BMW Charity Pro-Am at Green Valley Country Club in Greenville, South Carolina this weekend and doing it in style.
McMahon’s wardrobe for the tourney:
Friday: “an oversized wide-brimmed hat, checkered floral-print Hawaiian shorts, an earring and no shoes”
Saturday: barefoot with black polo shirt and cow-print pants (above and below)
Sunday: TBD, but it ought to be good
McMahon has made news in the past few years for a variety of health issues he says stem from his playing days, but he’s not become anti-football, per Greenville Online:
“I think it’s all about how you teach them,” McMahon said. “If you teach them the correct ways, it’s a safe game. Injuries will happen, but they happen everywhere. If you teach them correctly, it’s still a good game – it’s a great game.”
Other brash QBs (Bobby Layne and Joe Namath) pre-date McMahon, but he set the cockiness level for the passer of the post-1985 era. He also set about every NCAA passing record and won a Super Bowl.
FWIW – at publishing time, Max Homa and Blayne Barber were tied for the tournament lead.
