Might As Well Face It, You’re Addicted to Palmer

No, not this one:

Arnold Palmer

No, not this one:

Carson Palmer

No, not this one, who stuck the line “Might as well face it, you’re addicted to love” in our heads for eternity:

Robert Palmer (and friends)

Robert Palmer (and friends)

This is the Palmer that makes you swoon. This is the former piece of driftwood on the Iowa basketball bench who has scored 40 points in the Hawkeyes’ last two games and helped them to an ovetime win over Wisconsin Wednesday night.

This is the man who stayed on the team when a spectator is all he was. This is the man brought here by an assistant coach of Steve Alford’s when both fled Seton Hall. The assistant left in the wake of Alford’s exodus. The player, having already burned his redshirt year to come to Iowa, stayed behind.

This is the man who is No. 2 in your program, No. 1 in your hearts.

This is David Palmer, folk hero:

David Palmer. The Man.

David Palmer. The Man.

  1. Robert Palmer, dead or Canadian?

  2. Dead!

    And he was British, for that matter.

  3. Are you getting paid for these comments yet? If so, I’ll throw you a couple cents.
