Even though he's been retired for about a decade now, Michael Jordan still finds ways to stay busy. He owns the Charlotte Bobcats. He runs the brand that's named after him. And, he releases a new pair of sneakers almost every other day. But, MJ apparently still wants to do more. So, he just accepted a role as an advisor to the U.S. Ryder Cup Team. Ryder Cup team captain Davis Love III reached out to him recently and said he wanted MJ to be a part of the team.
"I've talked to him," he said. "Michael's going to be hanging around with Fred [Couples] probably a lot and be an influence. I told Michael this a couple weeks ago. One of the neatest things I ever saw in the Ryder Cup was Michael riding in the golf cart with Tom Kite. He came out to watch Freddie and I play and I thought that was one of the coolest things. So, I want my team, like Fred and I did, to get to see Michael. Rather than him sneaking around in the gallery, I want him to be seen and I want him to be in our team room, be hanging around and be a great influence."
The Ryder Cup tees off on September 28 at the Medinah Country Club in Illinois. Something tells us you care a whole hell of a lot more than you did five minutes ago.
