All tied up after the morning foursomes on Friday. Some of the American players really sh!t the bed. This afternoon looks to be a different story with the American players coming out strong in the afternoon.

So far this afternoon, US up in 2 matches, all square in the other two matches.

Check that... Kuchar just hit a long putt to go one up with his match.

I'd like to see the US win this. We haven't been good in men's tennis in years.

That Colitis guy from Europe has 8 birdies and an eagle. Yet Tiger and Stricker somehow still have a chance at a draw.

I can't believe people aren't watching.....Bubba Watson and Keegan Bradley make this fun to watch. And Bradley with Mickelson looks like a lethal duo

I watched it most of the day yesterday, back at it today (with a break around noon to mow the backyard. )

USA is OWNING the Euros this morning. Up in all 4 matches, and yeah, Keegan Bradley and Lefty are bringing it every single damn hole. McIlroy looks demoralized, and some of the wind has been taken out of Poulter's sails.

The Lefty/Bradley match will end at the 12th if Westwood/Donald keep playing like they are.

I am a little worried now with the Watson/Simpson pair. They started off good but the last 2 holes are weak.

The frenzied fans always trip me out when the Ryder Cup is in the US. Like Happy Gilmore is out there, or something...

I dig it, though.

Right on with L & B... 5 up after 9. Damn... that's an ass-whoopin' right there.

USA up in 3 matches, all square in the 4th. Stretch out that lead, bring Tiger & Kuch back for the afternoon session...

Check that... Simpson/Watson just missed a putt to halve the hole, so Rose/Poulter have gone 1 up through 10.

Damn. Steamrolled frickin' Luke Donald and Lee Westwood 7 & 6. Matched the best win in Ryder Cup history.

Good thing about beating them so early it lets both Mickelson and Bradley rest and come back to play in the afternoon.

Although Bradley is on such a roll I don't think I want him to rest.

Love has some thinking to do.

I figure you play Kuch and Woods this afternoon, and let Webb Simpson and either Phil or Bubba rest.

But what the hell do I know.

I like Phil's comments during the interview....shows they want to play as a team and not individuals.

Simpson/Watson showing some life. 1 down with two to go, Poulter/Rose looking vulnerable. US leading in all other matches.

Rose/Poulter 1 up with 1 left...

I love watching the thing. There have been some very memorable moments/shots on both sides.

My favorite moment of all time will be Darren Clarke.

About 2:38 in, after he lost his wife to cancer.

Not really. It gets lost because of football season. It's fun to watch, though.

Obviously, it's a bigger deal for the folks that follow golf. The crowds were damn impressive lining every single fairway at Medinah. Props to all of the fans that have shown up to watch.

I'll be watching this today instead of football.

Then again, with a 10-6 lead the US might have this thing closed out before the late games start.

How's this for a weekend of sports:


My Chiefs get blown out and look like total shit
My Pittsburgh Pirates get no hit and finish off their 20th STRAIGHT season with a losing record after being 16 games over .500 in August
I have to watch my favorite sport of golf and our US Team CHOKE in the Ryder Cup after being up 10-6 to start the day.


I think I am going to go out and beat someone else's wife! :deevee:

This was the very definition of a choking collapse. The US performance on holes 17 and 18 when it really mattered was jaw droppingly bad.
