    Let's hope we kick some European ass this week.

    I'm sick of listening to that Kraut European captain running his mouth.

    Oh and great news fellow HD viewers, NBC is NOT providing the game in HD.

    Golf is BOOOORING. I put on Golf telecasts when I'm laying around and want to take a nap ;)


    Golf is for fat old white guys with white patent leather shoes, matching belt and funny hats! :D

    Far to much of South Florida is taken up with Golf courses reserved for the rich, elderly white folks.

    I put Ryder cup right up there with the Super Bowl. Intense. Its been disappointing the last few years. Got to get off to a quick start for a change.

    Loooooove the Ryder Cup and I love it when we stuff you at it. This is probably the best true rivalry in sports for players playing for the flag on their chest and not the paycheck.

    Should be some great golf. Euros are underdogs, despite being the CURRENT CHAMPS!

    I have a wedding in Plymouth to attend so I have a jam-packed weekend. Any given chance and I'll be watching.

    GO EUROPE!! ;)

    B Twp is roughly 5-6 miles away, not that far at all.

    Oakland Hills is at Telegraph/15 Mile, Royal Oak's NW border is Greenfield/14 Mile.




    Al I think the SD game trumps the Ryder cup big time.

    And in this weeks Ryder Cup Restaurant Tipping Championship, Canada defeated Scotland 3 percent to 2 percent.

    Yeah he's pretty cocky for a guy who broke down and cried after blowing a putt years ago.

    I saw a picture of Mrs. Doubtfire the other day. She looks pretty good. Must have had breast reduction surgery. In all honesty I think he has handled the constant ribbing pretty well and is winning over the american fans. I'll miss his red faced tantrums though.

    One of the great sporting events to watch and attend. Wheather you play or not, it's a wonderful event to watch just on the basis of national pride and intense sportsmanship.

    To the weenie claiming it's a sport for old white men, think again! I play lot's of golf and see all factions of life out on the course. Young and old, black and white, men and women, etc. etc.

    The game is much more fun if you keep in really good shape (look at Tiger and some of the other young players on tour). You play better and hit the ball farther. Golf is one of the more difficult sports to master that I have played. Oh yea..........it's a great venue to conduct a little business. Try it some time.

    Yes, I will. Its my friends home course as a youngster. We used to shag the balls out of the water hazzards (if they still have them) and sell buckets to the hacks when I visited. We also used to sneak in during the winter and cruise snowmobiles on the greens.

    Look for Hopkins to kick the snot out of DeLaHoya.

    Looks like another dismal US showing. Mrs Doubtfire is hot again.

    Jesus Team USA has their heads straight up their collective asses.


    Did anyone see Mickelson's tee shot on the 18th this afternoon? That slice made mine look straight as an arrow.
