The Ghost of Herb Brooks in Valhalla

"If we played 'em ten times, they might win nine. But not this [tournament.] Not [this weekend.]"

The tournament where the Americans choke every other year Ryder Cup is this weekend, and the Americans are already behind by six points actually up by two point halfway through play on Saturday! They will still blow it by 14 actually have a fighting chance to win this thing, but there are still four matches this afternoon, and the all-important choke-jobs single matches tomorrow. Right now American architect of choke captain Paul Azinger looks like a idiot genius for splitting up traditional pairings, and splitting up pairings in the middle of the weekend.

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

UPDATE: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO- Boo Weekley drains a 25 footer from off the fringe to take a 2 up lead. The Americans lead 2, the Europeans lead one, and 1 is all square.

Update: McDowell nails one on 14 on the second tier where nobody has been able to hold. Furyk bends one around and stops it a foot inside McDowell. Then Perry says to hell with yous guys, I'm gonna land one within a foot of the cup. They need it down 2 with five to go. Minor update: They won the hole, down 1 with four to go.

Update: Stricker with a windy 25 footer to halve the 18th and halve the match. HUGE putt to save a point. Only two hole wins out of 18, one for each team. Unbelievable match.

Sunday Update: Furyk closes out Cabrera, and the Cup is back in the Good Ol USA!
