Brandon Weeden a Rickie Fowler superfan

While Tiger Woods stole the show inside the ropes at the weekend's Memorial Tournament, another big name turned heads in the gallery:

Brandon Weeden, the Oklahoma State-turned-Cleveland Browns quarterback who, according to The Plain Dealer, bought a special orange outfit to support/mimic fellow former Cowboy (and noted fashion star) Rickie Fowler.

It didn't quite work in terms of Fowler's scorecard; the young Fowler (a fourth-year pro who, at 23, is considerably younger than the 28-year-old rookie Weeden) shot an ugly 84, far from the winning 67 Woods fired while in the same pairing.

Still, Fowler clearly appreciated the gesture; he changed his Twitter avatar to a shot from the 2012 Fiesta Bowl, where this pic also was snapped:
