Who the Fuck is Booz Allen?

Well, it's hard to say.

What we can confidently say is that it is the name of a golf tournament being led by Ben Curtis heading into today's action. But for this Boozer dude, we just don't know for sure. We typed some shit into google and all that came up was this silly thing. (Fine, so we probably added an "e" to his name.)

All we could dig up on Old Man Booz(er) is that Edwin G. Booz(er) crafted the idea of management consulting back during WWI. No word on his involvment in the war, but we'll suggest he was not at all OK with prohibition. Boozer's role in bootlegging is hazy, as was he while assissting other thirsty lawbreakers.

As for this Allen thing, it comes from Boozer's drinking buddy at Northwestern, James L. Allen. If this is indeed the company sponsor for this golf classic (which we can't confirm), Booz Allen is not one man at all, but two men who combined for a pretty wonderful name and a lot of blurry days in Chicago.

Read other Who the fuck is...: Mel Kiper Jr.; Chris Shelton; George Mason; Pat Venditte; Sidney Lowe; Orestes Destrade; Eric Musselman.

In other news: Esteban Loaiza beat the Giants Sunday after doing 120 on the freeway with a bottle of whiskey the night before.

Seeing as this is probably the last year of the Booz Allen Classic here in D.C. (long story, big on DC talk radio), it's kind of redeeming to know that Booz Allen isn't a real person.
