CHI CHI RODRIGUEZ
WELL, YOU KNOW. ARNIE'S THE KING OF GOLF AND I REALLY, I REALLY ENJOY WATCHING HIM. YOU KNOW, AND HE'S DONE SO MANY GOOD THINGS, NOT ONLY FOR, FOR GOLF BUT FOR EVERYTHING, BUT I ALWAYS HAVE ADMIRED HIM. YOU KNOW, WHEN HE ENDORSES A PRODUCT, I MEAN HE REALLY GOES TO BAT FOR IT. THE OTHER DAY WE WERE IN THE COCKTAIL PARTY, AND HE WAS DRINKING PENNZOIL.
