LMAO at European Tour and its selection process for Ryder Cup captain
The bandwagon of sportswriters has gained size and strength since Mrs. Doubtfire was named the next big thing at Ryder Cup captain school. I may be the only pseudo-sportswriter to occupy the state of LMAO. LMAO because Europe is imitating the Americans for a change. Next thing you know, their team will charge across a putting green before the hole is decided. The whole thing is a debacle because they Larry Nelsoned poor Sandy Lyle. A debacle because they dragged Olie, JM Olazabal, back into the fray for some unknown reason at the 11th hour. A debacle because Monty may be the worst candidate for Ryder Cup captain since Hal Sutton and until Tiger Woods (more on that accusation later in this post.)
To support my decrying of the Monty appointment, answer me these four questions:
1. Did anyone other than Lee want to partner Monty?
2. Did Monty drink and smoke with the boys while allegedly teaming with them in any Ryder Cup?
3. Has any competitor on the European Tour forgiven Monty for the scandalous replacing of the ball at Jakarta in 2005?
4. Has any other RC captain had the ignominy of having a button created (Be Nice To Monty) because he was such a simpering, whining wuss, as Monty had at the 2002 USGA Open at Bethpage?
These four questions (and a host of others that I could admit to evidence if I cared enough to do so) virtually assure a team implosion in 2010 and lessen the chances of a European victory in Wales in 2010.
Now, on to Tiger Woods as a captain. Think about it. If you don’t get it, leave a comment below and I’ll write another blog entry about it by the weekend.
