Her Underwear is Ryder-ing Up

Okay, first, if you're wondering if I've been waiting for a chance to do a golf post in order to use that pic, you're right.

Today begins the Ryder Cup at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, and the United States is hanging in there and is at least not off to the horrible starts they've gotten off to in the last couple of Cups.

Without Tiger Woods, many think the Euros are just too strong but I do think playing in their home country is helpful for the U.S. And, sure, the Euros have won five of the past six, but let's not forget one key thing. This is a country vs. continent contest.

Back when the Ryder Cup began in 1927, it was the United States vs. Great Britain. Then after the U.S. dominated for 40+ years, Great Britain apparently annexed Ireland and all Ireland's great players. And then, in 1979, they said, the hell with it, let's just take anyone and everyone from Europe. Gotta have Seve Ballesteros and Sergio Garcia and so on.

Sure, sure, the U.S. is larger, I get it. But the game was invented over there so I'm not sure how many advantages we need to give them. I guess it'll just make it sweeter when we take them down, even without Tiger.
