The BP St. Jude Classic?

Posted By on Wed, Jun 9, 2010 at 3:34 PM

A reader just sent a link to this BleacherReport.com story, which suggests that planet-destroying oil corporation BP would be smart to step up and sponsor the currently sponsor-less St. Jude Classic golf tournament in Memphis.

The logic is undeniable: a company with the absolute worst PR disaster in the world makes steps toward turning around its image by sponsoring a tournament that benefits the world's most famous children's cancer hospital. Sure, it's cynical in concept, but I can't imagine the good folks out at Southwind turning up their nose a deal that might save the tournament.

After all, what's greener than, well, a green? And no doubt, BP would rather people associate the company with golf than Gulf.
