Congratulations, Arnold Palmer!
Arnold Palmer Cupcakes before, and boy, were they good! On Wednesday, Palmer was honored with the Congressional Gold Medal, and became just the sixth athlete to receive the award. (The others, according to ABC News, were "track Olympian Jesse Owens, baseball hall of famers Roberto Clemente and Jackie Robinson, boxing icon Joe Louis and fellow golfer Byron Nelson.") Palmer is also known for his charitable work and philanthropy, and I liked that when accepting the award during a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol, he joked that he is “particularly proud of anything that the House and the Senate agree on.” And so I happily lift my bottle of Arnold Palmer to … Arnold Palmer!
