More Like One Out of a Million

A 10-6 Ryder Cup deficit seems daunting. Except that it's been overcome twice since 1999, including the very last time these two ancient rivals faced each other on the green fields of France (Medinah, technically, but this post is all about excuses to post various inspirational YouTubes).



No, we're not digging deep for original oratory. Our team of rich Republicans wouldn't likely go for it, anyway. We're trafficking in tried and true today. One shot at a time. One hole at a time. Count 'em all up, and hope we get to 14 1/2. Like it did in Brookline in 1999. (Enjoy, once again, David Duval's 'fist pump' stylings. It's possibly the whitest moment ever caught on camera.)



I assume Tom Watson played that Leonard putt several times in the team room last night. Though, I guess, based upon his decision-making thus far in Gleneagles, he might just as likely have played Gallipoli. Bet Keegan Bradley's watching this instead.



War's over, man. Dubuisson dropped the big one. Things look bleak for the red, white, and blue. They looked bleak in December 1776, too, friends. The captain of a different U.S. side didn't fold up his tents and give the Cup to Cornwallis. Instead, he attacked, crossing the Delaware and capturing an entire Hessian garrison. If that doesn't scare the shit out of Martin Kaymer, I don't know what to tell you. Sure, the odds are long, but in the words of a different comedic giant, "So you're telling' me there's a chance?"

TR is busy texting me photos of big honeys and meatheads at the Meadowlands and Jeter's last game starts in 20 minutes. Meanwhile, zson had a stomach bug so my family room is coated in vomit and a have a metric shitton of work to get done today because my next five days in the office are already almost booked up with meetings and other face-to-face tomfoolery. So much internal conflict. Do I boot my sick kid's Thomas the Train video off the TV in favor of Jeter? Should I even watch the game given the amount of work I have to do? Can I even manage to spend more than 10 minutes in the family room without vomiting due to the stench of the preexisting vomit?

Zman - sometimes you gotta say "What the fuck".

zman said...

In family room windows open ceiling fan on.

So TR, I guess we aren't going to Fenway today?

zman said...

Will they use the bob shepherd recording?

zman said...

This broadcast is overly maudlin. Saying "I've never heard a lets go yankees chant at Fenway" means you haven't been to many Yankee games at Fenway. I remember 1918 chants at Fenway. And I miss them. Worst part about 2004 was losing that chant.

JJ Watt is incredible. EJ Manuel is not.

zman said...

I just came here to say that JJ Watt is preposterously faster than EJ Manuel.

zman said...

Steve Smith Sr.: 5/122/2 with over a quarter left to play.

rob said...

the stillers lost at home to the bucs? ewww. pains me to say this, but any team other than the rooneys', and tomlin would be on a very hot seat.

Mark said...

8Ball & MJG opened for Outkast today. Dammit.

Danimal said...

So Phil wasted no time throwing Tom Watson under the bus. Nice move buddy. Stay classy.

zman said...

Worst fake punt ever? Worst fake punt ever.
