Zinger's Palin Pick: Streelman
You think that McCain picking Sarah Palin as running mate was out of the blue? What happens if Kevin Streelman wins this weekend? Can Azinger avoid picking the guy? We know he had the chops to lead the US Open and he will have performed exceedingly well on two successive playoff stages. True that he didn’t qualify to play in the PGA Championship but heck, none of the other potential captain’s choices did much at the SlimFast PGA at Oakland Hills.
As of 6:03 EST on Saturday the 30th of September, here are the never-set-in-stone Big Four picks from RonMon:
1. Rocco Mediate (earned a right to play…poker nerves w/o the poker face.)
2. Steve Stricker (assuming he plays well this weekend and gets into double-under-par figures at Boston. I need to know his putter is working.)
3. Woody Austin (ditto what I wrote for Stricker…longer haul for Woody but he’s the birdie machine team USA needs for the matches.)
4. Streelman (if he finishes top three at Boston)
All of this is rendered moot if the usually-uninformed RonMon has missed the fact that Zinger isn’t selecting this week. We know Faldo is, but that’s all the RonMon knows. In the spirit of Cheap Bastard, RonMon will now often refer to himself in the third person.
