Nice putt, Alice
School was out for Alice Cooper on Tuesday at the interview room for the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. Cooper, the former rock star turned five-handicap golf addict, brought his A game.
On tournament host Arnold Palmer: "He's everybody's uncle. He's that uncle that would hand you five dollars and say don't tell your mom.”
On athletes and musicians: “I've never met a baseball player that didn't want to be in a band. And I never met a guy in a band that didn't want to either play center or be an outfielder. I think I could actually play for the Lions this year if I really wanted to. I'm from Detroit, I'm allowed to say that. “
On growing up in Detroit: “When I was a kid we really only had three sports in Detroit, we had baseball, football, and grand theft auto. So the guys who played golf, we go, golf? Is that a game? “
His dream foursome: “It would be Hope and Crosby, Martin and Lewis. I would caddie for those four…. I would carry all four bags just to walk 18 with those guys."
