Jen, Jen, Jen........you can't ACTUALLY expect Beth Daniel to actually take responsibility for losing a match? Not after Nancy Lopez brought her on the team ahead of at least 2 younger/better players (NEITHER of whom are named Michelle)!! LOL

BV There was no need for Daniel to take responsibility for losing the match, since they didn't lose. But Daniel might have said something about Creamer's great bunker shot on 18 which allowed them to at least salvage a tie.

Captain Nancy at it again. She is so concerned about experience, yet she puts Creamer on the first tee time. Europe's captain says she didn't send a rookie out in the morning so they could see what the competition was like first, get a feel. If experience is SUCH a big deal, perhaps Nancy could have thought about that when forming her pairings and tee times! Instead, she sticks Creamer with the OLDEST player on the team. OK, so maybe that was to give Creamer a steadying influence, a rock solid feel. Confidence only a 7 time Cup player could exude.

Or, Beth could not sleep the night before, state publicly that she felt they (her and Creamer) were not likely to do well, be twitchy on the first tee, miss hit critical shots all day, and blame her partner at the end of the round. Hmm, who is the rookie here, and who was added to the team for her ability to inspire and lead? The Beth Daniel pick looks worse by the minute. Surprise, surprise.

I love tomorrow's pairings now too. Let's see, we were doing well, then melted down. In the afternoon, we had a rock-solid duo help pull our bacon out of the fire. Let's NOT play those two, and chop up all the teams from the first morning. Rather than try and keep a duo that did very well for most of the day together, like Kim/Hurst, let's mix it all up and go for broke in the morning!

Hopefully our players will overcome their captain and win this thing. Either way, I am sure Lopez will be emotional and everyone will talk about what an icon she is. Icon, yes. Emotional, yes. Good captain? Answer is in already: no, with Hell No still an option.

Grrr!

Am I just being cynical, or does pairing Beth Daniel with one of the hottest young Americans in the foursomes allow the record to show what Daniel Creamer did without any separate record of what each golfer did individually as would have been the case if Daniel had played in the four ball competititon?

Any chance someone could put together a Western Hemisphere vs. Eastern Hemisphere Cup for disaster relief that could include the one person that people want to see--Michelle Wie?

Thanks god for the steadying hand of veteran Beth Daniel. If not for her calming influece, I fear the US would be even further behind.

Tim. Did you notice that Nancy played Beth Daniel in only one more partner event after the first round? And in that one she paired Beth Daniel with Juli Inkster--not exactly a young player in need of a calming influence. Beth Daniel had a slightly better round than Juli Inkster, but that was just golf--not calming influence.
