What are the odds of Wendy Ward winning a game?

1. I cannot believe that NO major network is carrying the matches, even today.

2. Even in puns, I believe in maintaining grammatical agreement, so it "should" be "womana e womana" (feminine gender).

3. Did I mention the network issue? My local paper didn't even bother to mention the Golf Channel coverage, though some crappy IRL event broadcast on the Speed network was listed.

4. Sigh...

Good thing the US had Creamer...Wie would probably have "CHOKED".

John, what do you mean by "CHOKED"? You capitalize and put it in quotes. So you must have some hidden meaning, something you mean to imply beyond the meaning of the word itself.

As for Captain Nancy and how wonderful a job she did - James has summed it up elsewhere better than I ever could. Nancy had two choices for this team, and her choices sucked. She brought a previous proven losing player in Wendy Ward, and Wendy lost again. And she brought an undeserving old friend in Beth Daniel along for one more ride. Ostensibly, Beth was providing some form of leadership and guidance for the younger players. Unfortunately, the only leadership she provided was a losing effort every time she played, and the only guidance was how to be a real jerk of a teammate in a post-match interview. Not to mention a first-rate lesson on ignoring your own sucky play and dumping blame on someone else.

Quality choices by Lopez. She should be commended, for sure. Please. As James pointed out, it was the narrowest margin on U.S. soil ever. I am thankful for only one thing - that Nancy's "leadership" only had potential costs. We won the Cup despite her, so all is well. Now let's NEVER have her captain a team for us again.

Candace, just for you..... Bob and his three golf buddies were out playing and were just starting on the back nine when Bob paused, looked down the fairway and began to sob uncontrollably. The other three gathered around him and asked: What's wrong? Bob looked down at his feet, sniffed and dried his eyes some, then apologized for his emotional outburst. I'm sorry, I always get emotional at this hole it holds very difficult memories for me. One of his buddies asked: What happened? What could have gotten you so upset? Bob stared silently off in the distance, then said in a low voice, This is where my wife and I were playing 12 years ago when she suddenly died of a heart attack; right at this very hole. Oh my God, the other golfers said, That must have been horrible! Horrible? You think it`s horrible? Bob cried in disbelief; It was worse than that! Every hole for the rest of the day, all the way back to the clubhouse it was hit the ball, drag Alice, hit the ball, drag Alice...
