    Count me in with Moddy. The Euros are better. In '99, the US comeback was possible because when the US guys played their best, they'd eviscerate the lower-level guys on the Euro team like Van De Velde. Garcia's loss in the singles doomed them. Momentum comes with 6 and 5 wins. Now, Tiger Woods and Furyk can come out and play great golf and Woods can't shake Karlsson until near the end and Furyk can't catch Casey. Garcia can't do a thing today, and who notices?
    The Euros have won the last three days of singles. In '02, they were like a collective 20 under to the US' 3 under. In '04 and today, they dominated from the first. Maybe all the intangible motivation hoo-has means something in pairs, but singles is individual ability, and the Euros have more of it.

    The Europeans look like they've having fun. Most of the Americans look like they've got sand wedges stuck up their butts.

    DiMarco has rallied from five down to one down. Too little too late but he did at least sack up and not quit.
    Still, they're better.

    Verplank with some very candid comments about the pairings.

    Great stat about Sergio: In his Ryder Cup career, when playing with a partner, he's 13-1-1, the best in Ryder Cup history.

    Quick question: Is it true that Woosnam is never allowed to drive in the United Kingdom again? I seem to remember he got like five DUIs in the 80s and 90s, and they took away his driver's license for, well, ever. I kept thinking about that when he was pouring champange down his throat, nose, front of his shirt. Woosy is a drunk's drunk.

    A few quick stats from singles play. The US twelve was a collective 18 under par, which isn't bad. Europe was 35 (!!) under
    Six of the twelve Americans shot under par in their match. All twelve Europeans were under par. Scott Verplank can shove the pairings up his ass. The Europeans were just too good to lose..

    Just looking at the 2006 PGA Tour media guide. According to that, the full name of the player with the best record in Ryder Cup history is Sergio Garcia Fernandez. Anybody know what's up with that?

    I think we should go back to using college kids who actually care about playing hard for this country instead of a bunch of spoiled millionaires who are just there to appease their sponsors! ;D

    (Sarcasm mode. Sort of).

    Overall, another bang-up job by T-Rod and the boys.
