Michael Jordan's Fiery Round of Golf

8/12/2005

Last Saturday, Michael Jordan and some buddies played a round of golf at the Rancho San Marcos golf course in Santa Barbara County, California. Somehow or another, a 25-acre fire that required 250 firefighters, two air tankers, and three helicopters to put out started about then and there. Authorities don't think Jordan started the fire, but according to ESPNews, they think he knows who did.

"While we do not believe Mr. Jordan is personally responsible for starting the fire, our investigators have been told that members of his party could have started it, and we would like to speak to Mr. Jordan or his managers to learn more about their group," Santa Barbara County Fire Department Spokesman Keith Cullom told ESPN Hollywood on Thursday. "So far, we are not getting any cooperation from him.

"Michael Jordan was not at the hole where the fire started, but it is believed he would know who was involved. While we're not asking Michael to pick up the phone and call us, it would be appropriate for his managers or representatives to assist in our investigation, and so far they are not."

I just have a funny feeling this has something to do with a cigar.
