U.S. Ryder Cup team wild card picks
“Zinger, you’ve got to quit bothering me, I’m trying to write.”
“Have you seen what I have to choose from? I’ve waited this long hoping someone would get hot, but NOBODY is hot. Please, help me, Tim, help me.”
“OK, but this could change.”
Rocco Mediate. Good Ryder Cup temperament. Loose enough to keep everyone relaxed, but that hides an intensely competitive spirit.
Woody Austin. Emotional opposite of Mediate. He’s a little wacko, but wacko in a good kind of way. Wacho in a way that might unnerve the Euros.
Hunter Mahan. This guy is just an awesome golfer at times. If he can find his rhythm at Valhalla, he could do some serious Euro-damage.
Jerry Kelly. Don’t know why, I just like this guy in this kind of atmosphere.

Other three...you're winning me over to Rocco...He has no experience, but what the hell...He LOVES poker and I want a card-flipping prick on my team when it's crunch time.
My replacement for Kelly...Carolyn Bivens...Just Kidding!!!...Ha De Ha Ha...actually, I like Stricker if he's driving it straight, because he putts out of this world.
Mahan (if he can take all the ribbing at mealtimes) because he doesn't have grind it out for 4 rounds, just play a couple of blinders.
Stricker + "hot 1". (Maybe I was wrong about Azinger's lateral thinking - your comments re Piercy/Streelman).
NB Kaymer m/c Gleneagles - out of running for Euro team.
Seriously, though, don't you think there's any difference between grinding out the 4th round when you know you're not in contention, to how fired up he would be in single rounds? If he's not scared of TW, don't think he'll be scared of any Euro either- at least that's why I still harbour a little (v. little) hope for him.
Not so seriously, he's also a lot more fun and a little better looking than most of the US team.
