Death, taxes, and great Miguel Angel Jimenez stories -- the three things you can count on in this life.

Jaime Diaz profiled the aging Spainard recently for GolfDigest and collected the usual quotes like this one from Tommy Armour III:

"He's pretty straight, pretty good with the irons, has a pretty good short game and is a pretty good putter. It adds up to a really very good player. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts."

But then things took a turn when Diaz told this story from the eyes of Jose Maria Olazabal.

"José Maria Olazábal -- who as an introverted ascetic from the north of Spain is outwardly Jiménez's opposite -- loves to tell the story of his close friend standing nearly naked in front of a locker-room mirror (the mind's eye can't avoid a vision of bikini briefs), and saying, "Vascorro [Spanish for Basque], I am such a beautiful man."

Yep, I believe every word of that.

I'm just glad I didn't have to witness it.

Go read the rest of the profile, it doesn't disappoint.
