    An unprecedented 3 in a row is very close.

    "I am a big believer in fate, I have a good feeling tomorrow. That's all I am gonna say."


    The Americans Can Do It.


    A la the 1999 Brookline Comeback.

    And I believe they will do it.

    I really believe they are so much better in the singles.

    Maybe on home turf,but not in Ireland.This time tomorrow I will probably be wishing I had kept my mouth shut.[​IMG]

    I am not betting on the US side. I think they have it easier than the Europe side and aren't as willing to put up a fight. I believe in fate as well and am not looking forward to 2008, either.

    Solid start for Europe,things are looking good.
    I thought there might have been a bigger response on this thread as a commentator claimed yesterday,the Ryder Cup is the 3rd biggest sporting event in the world.I dont know what facts this comment was based on but that was the claim.
    1.World Cup 2.Olympics,in case anyone was interested.

    Obviously golf is not as popular as I thought.Europe walked it anyway,what a great moment for Darren Clarke.

    What an absolute butt-thumping. What is the deal with the US squad? Pitiful.

    The US doesn't have a squad, but rather a bunch of decent family men who have made a very comfortable living by placing second to Tiger. Think Michael and the Jordannaires.

    Lehman was a decent choice for captain since he's at least won something, but he's a get-along guy as well, not a win-at-all-costs player like Hogan, Nicklaus, Snead, Player, or Watkins.

    We might not win again until Tiger assumes the captaincy, or one of the old lions comes back.

    I read someone's opinion yesterday that the US will never capture another international competition until the players are promised a huge payday for a win: golf, basketball, etc.

    Do our pro athletes make so much money — salaries and endorsements — that they simply don't care? Seems rather jaded.
