Ryder Cup

Sorry to start this off on a critical note, but am I the only one who wanted to puke listening to Hal Sutton's address at the opening ceremony?

How the fuck do you manage to turn a golf competition into something about "protecting American freedoms". Yoo hoo Hal, its a GAME involving hitting a little ball around fields with little holes in them!

For christ's sake, when are we going to get some rest from all of this rhetoric, it's getting incredibly boring.

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

I managed to miss the opening ceremony, but I did see the bit where Donald Trump was wheeled out for some reason...I swiftly turned over.

I have a feeling in my bones that this will be the US of A's year...I think they are a bit more up for battle, their patriotic juices are flowing, which with the addition of a pumped up, potentially hostile crowd, will give them the cup.

But regardless...GO EUROPE!

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!

I just hope the American public behave themselves and don't jeer the Europeans as they are custom too........fine cheer your team, but be sporting and don't jeer.......Colin Montgomerie was booed slightly at the beginning....but he has a history with America......most were fine........but 'some' Americans can turn bitter and nasty

Monty and Harrington in the bunkers straight off
Mickelson & Woods in the crowd
LOL!

I already hear some big mouth drunks in the gallery yelling over something or another. Leave it to a tournament to be held in the states to show absolute classlessness!

I'm American, but I'm cheering for the Europeans. As if I have to endure another year of Tiger Woods maddness I'm going to scream. Isn't Woods washed up now? I certainly hope.

Go GARCIA!!!

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!
