Re: 2008 Ryder Cup
I hate being wrong about Team Europe, but I love the fact that Team USA regained the Ryder Cup.
I honestly anticipated a blow out of epic proportions, but it just didn't happen. The "best" Euros didn't show up. That was the difference. To put this weekend into perspective, this is basically the same as a 15 seed beating a 2 seed in the NCAA tourney. Huge huge upset.
Part of me wonders if the Euros vastly took the Americans for granted, and assumed they'd stomp the US on their home turf.
Regardless, great golf this weekend by a golfers not many of us knew before, and some absolutely horrendous golf by some household names.
I'm also wondering if anyone's going to sit next to Westwood or Harrington on the trip home...
