We'll probably never know the rest of this story. Apparently, not even former Auburn football coach Pat Dye knows the rest of the story.
On Lake Martin's shore, expanded because of drought conditions, a lady by the name of Shannon McDuffie happened upon Dye's long-lost wallet, hidden under water for the past two decades.
That story would have been interesting enough in itself. But McDuffie also found the long out-of-style madras golf pants that went with it. The mud-covered wallet contained Dye's driver's license, credit cards and the like from the mid-1980s. A set of Toyota car keys were in the pants pocket.
An amused Dye, who had a condominium at Stillwaters at the time, could offer no explanation.
"I don’t remember losing it, but now listen, that was a long time ago,” Dye told the Lake Martin edition of Lake Magazine, which reported the discovery in an online story Tuesday.
“I don’t have any idea how I lost ’em,” Dye said, “but we can make up a good story.”
Dye invited McDuffie to attend the Blue Jean Ball, where he said he would donate the pants and their contents for a charity auction. The last time Dye auctioned off clothes was after angry Syracuse fans sent him ugly ties after Auburn settled for a game-tying field goal in the final seconds of the 1988 Sugar Bowl.
WOW...never in a million years would I have thought this up. How drunk do you have to be to lose your pants?
