Stale air Jordan


A city official has asked the PGA Tour to remind Michael Jordan that he can’t smoke cigars at San Francisco’s Harding Park during the Presidents Cup. Jordan, inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame last month, is serving as an honorary assistant to U.S. captain Fred Couples. A photo of Jordan smoking his cigar published in the San Francisco Chronicle caught the attention of city officials. Harding Park is a public facility, and smoking is banned. “I’ve already sent an e-mail to the PGA Tour director,” Recreation and Park general manager Phil Ginsburg told the newspaper. “It was a gentle nudge reminding them that smoking is illegal and that we would appreciate their support.”
