Arnold Palmer was cold, so someone gave him a winter cap


As yet another winter storm bears down on the (entire) East Coast, some folks in Latrobe, Penn., noticed a statue of Arnold Palmer at the regional airport bearing his name looked awfully cold.

So they tried to dress the King warmly for the pending winter weather.

This photo, taken by Joanne Previc, shows the Palmer statue with a nice knit cap on, still looking as cool as ever even in bone-chilling temperatures.

There's a reason Mr. Palmer waits until the spring to make his way back to his hometown.
