The NY Post is ‘reporting’ that his Airness, Michael Jordan, may not be allowed back at a Miami Beach country club because he wore cargo shorts instead of Bermuda shorts. What makes matters worse is that Jordan was ratted out by other members of La Gorce Country Club because of this minor faux pas. According to the NY Post: Michael Jordan ruffled feathers at an exclusive Miami Beach country club when he wouldn’t play by their rules. Page Six has exclusively learned the NBA legend hit the links as a guest at swanky La Gorce Country Club — but his gear didn’t fit the club’s old-school rules. “Michael was wearing cargo pants on the course,” said a spy. Jordan’s multipocketed pants were apparently against the dress code that, sources say, dictates that members and guests must be attired in a collared shirt and Bermuda shorts. But when 6-foot, 6-inch Jordan was offered a chance to change outfits, he demurred. “He was given the chance to change but he didn’t want to,” a source said. The source added that Jordan, who was enjoying a round at the club with one of its members, played on anyway. The source added that members complained about Jordan breaking the rules and, “He won’t be invited back.” A rep for Jordan said, “Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change. We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. If the golf course really has banned Jordan for this minor transgression, they probably have won anyhow. They lose one golfer but get a week of the best press they could ask for. H/T Traina Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
