Ben Curtis not so smartly jumps on Brett Favre bandwagon in FedEx Cup Barclays
PARAMUS, N.J. - If you’ve spent any time in the greater New York metro market, you know that Northern New Jersey is largely New York Giants country. In these parts, you’ll get 10 lifelong Giants fans for every one New York Jets rebel.
Yet Ben Curtis - who for once had a choice in what he’d wear in a golf tournament with this being a two-team NFL market - showed up in all Jets green for the first round of the Barclays, the first tournament in the second FedEx Cup. Maybe Curtis got a little carried away with the Brett Favre hype (hey, you can make a whole career out of doing that at ESPN!)
Still, the old magic of No. 4 wasn’t exactly there for Curtis at Ridgewood Country Club. Then again, who knows if it’s still there for Favre anymore either?
But there Curtis was posting an even par 71 that puts him nine shots back of runaway first round leader Hunter Mahan. And has him hearing plenty from Giants fans.
When you have an NFL gear endorsement contract, you’d hope you would put a little research into your team selections. First, the Detroit Lions blunder (actually thinking that people in Detroit like the Lions). Now this.
That’s Curtis. And people used to think Eli Manning was dorky?
