If you have been watching the 2012 Ryder Cup, you may have witnessed the greatest choke jobs in the history of American sports! With an almost insurmountable lead going into the final round, the Americans drowned in their own vomit as they puked all over themselves from start to finish on Sunday.
The faces of the PGA tour, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, and Tiger Woods would have been better off to have stayed home this weekend as they completely embarrassed themselves. Tiger and Steve couldn’t beat a couple of local club pros this week! Jason Dufner, Zach Johnson, and Dustin Johnson carried the American squad but was given little help from our so called seasoned veterans. I guess when you earn millions of dollars by showing up for events around the world and all the endorsements that go along with marginal success, you are not hungry for success on the world stage nor can you handle the pressures that go along with that. The Europeans, on the other hand, have to work hard every day to get the respect they deserve. If you are active in sports it is very simple, when you have an opponent down, you step on their throat! Give them a chance to breathe, and you give them a chance to survive. Today, the soft Americans gave the Europeans a chance to breathe and they came back to humiliate us.
It’s OK though, there will be another PGA event and one of these guys will win a million dollars and all will be forgiven – WRONG! Brandt Snedeker won his $10,000,000 last week, why should he care about what happens this week? When are we going to get tough and not accept this B.S. anymore? Let’s chill out in Hawaii in January and all will be forgiven!
