The kindness of Arnold Palmer

They called him "The King," and folks are saying of golfer Arnold Palmer that he "lifted the game to another level." Loaded with charisma and a commoner’s touch, he was a genuine nice guy. I started hearing people praise him earlier this week, just after hearing news of his death. One of the things everyone is saying is that he was a kind man. He was one of the first sports figures to endorse products and even ended up having a product named after him (a mix of lemonade and iced tea). He was so down to earth, he didn't really like being called "The King," and said once in an interview "I don’t bask in it. I don’t relish it. I tried for a long time to stop that and there was no point." Being remembered as nice and kind, is a great legacy indeed!
