Chris, we all know your mother tried to flush you down the toilet, but try being nice once in awhile. Golf is a gentlemens sport after all.

You know why the rest of the world hate America? Ignorant comment like this. As well, making blanket negative comments about your own ally is not helping either.

Remember the 1999 Ryder Cup?

Here is a reminder from Wikipedia:

"There was still considerable bad blood after the match with some of the European players complaining about the behavior of the American galleries throughout the match. Sam Torrance branded it "disgusting," while European captain Mark James referred to it as a "bear pit" in a book recounting the event[5]. There were also reports that his wife was spat at by a spectator."

We sure did not see things like this in Montreal.

Now I know that you know absolutely nothing about golf. Thanks for the verification.

Chris,

Your knowledge of golf is about the same as the the average American knows about Hockey - little to none.

Perhaps you should try writing about hockey too. At least then the person that stumbles upon this site by accident which I am sure are many like myself will have some some variety to amuse themselves to these suspect blogs.

Funny, Canada acted a lot like the USA acts when they beat Canada in an Olympic hockey game. Shame on the USA for having national pride. ;)

Nolan,

Didn't you say on another thread that the Internationals were better team players than the selfish Yanks? And that they would beat the Americans because they like to do the pubcrawl together?

How did that work out?

Mike Weir stood up on Sunday under a ridiculous amount of pressure, and beat the best golfer in the world (possibly ever) on home soil in the event he lobbied for. If that isn't something to be proud of for Canada, how about this, I don't know what is. I guess America can't be proud of its Ryder Cup wins either? Oh wait, they haven't really won in.......

Obviously you're just trying to be provacative. Mike Weir performed wonderfully under tremendous pressure and Canada has every right to be proud of him. "Meaningless match" just because of the overall result? I don't think so.

Nicklaus : Tiger, I know you hate to lose but it would be better all around if you didn't do a Steven Ames on Mike Weir today.
Tiger : Yeah, I'd hate to see Mike bawling on TV like he did after I crushed him in the PGA a few years ago.
Nicklaus : Hit it OB and act mad if necessary to keep it close. Take it to 18 and then make sure he wins 1 up, that's the best scenario. We got this cup locked up and all the Canucks will be gathered on 18 and will go home happy. Take one for the team.
Tiger : Will do.

So we like Mike Weir.

Americans on the other hand voted in G.W. Bush and Co. Twice.

lol, love the comment about how loving hockey drops your IQ about 50 points; that was a good one. Alas, if you've ever had the misfortune of talking to an NFL or NBA player (or just your typical "student-athlete" at a state university in the US), you'd know hockey players aren't the dimmest bulbs in the box :)

Of course, if Americans dominated the sport, we'd all be listening ad nauseum to how great the game of hockey is. But they don't dominate the sport so, of course, it sucks.

Anyway, I will say this: I think eldrick threw "little mikey" (who I agree is over-rated) a bone. Here kid, I've got enough hardware for the year, you have this one, solitary, meaningless match to keep you warm all winter.

Do you actually believe what is coming out of your head? Obviously you know nothing of pride and admiration for a sports figure with humility and pride in his own game. Beating Eldrick can happen and I doubt Eldrick would throw anything as it would completely undermine his competitive drive that makes him what he is. By the way you might want to try the other end of Ste. Catherine street next time your there. It will remind you of most US inner cities.
