Payback for Casey
I don’t know about you, but I’m really tuned in to the Sony Open for Paul Casey’s 2005 debut on the PGA Tour. Casey, of course, is the Brit who called Americans “stupid” and “annoying” after the Ryder Cup. As if beating the U.S. wasn’t enough.
I don’t usually pay much attention to these things – pro athletes are always shooting their mouths off and it’s usually fairly adolescent stuff – but this one sticks in my craw for some reason.
For the record, I’d like for Americans to show Casey how they feel about his attitude toward America – where he got his college education and where he earns most of his money. Nothing too drastic, I’d just like to see some minor payback. How about this: A big, burly biker wearing an American flag dumping a warm can of Budweiser on his head? Or a Honolulu housewife throwing an apple pie in his face? Maybe some super-glue on his 3-wood? Then we can call it even and shake hands all around.
What I’d really like to see is Michelle Wie beating him on the course, but the above scenarios are more likely to happen.

If it's any consulation, Casey didn't make the cut either, and finished exactly as Wie, so a 15-year-old girl did keep up with him point-for-point. Well done, Michelle!
Obviously, the punk didn't see 'Happy Gilmore', one of the best golf movies of all time. In it, Happy had many rowdy golf groupies. Yeah, maybe some of our countrymen may have been a little rambuncous, but they meant it in good fun, and pride in our team at the last Ryder Cup. America is getting onboard with a fantastic love of Golf, and it's about time.
All I have to say to Casey is..."Don't bite the hand that feeds you", and if you can't say anything nice, don't say it at all.
Unfortunately, the only thing worse than professional athletes "shooting their mouths off" is Sports Writers doing the same.
Word is Casey was interviewed in a pub... Hopefully you weren't sober when you wrote the above article.
