Ryder Cup

I feel like I have to write something about the Ryder Cup because I’m a golf fan. Well, it was ugly. It was just as expected. The Americans were expected to lose and we lost. We simply were not as strong throughout our line up. We needed Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson, Hunter Mahan, Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley to step up. Although Rickie Fowler played pretty well, the rest of the line up played average. The exception to this mediocre play was Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler. I really think that Fowler is a hair’s breath away from being truly great.

On the other hand, the Europeans got great performances from some of the guys we really didn’t expect to hit it out of the park. Jamie Donaldson played GREAT. Dubuisson played outstanding. He was steady and focused. World number 1 Rory McIlroy started off in a funk but played his way out of it. By Sunday, he was putting lights out. The biggest surprise was Justin Rose. He was great. He kept making shot after shot and putt after putt. It isn’t that Rose can’t play great. He can and he has. He seems to fall short in the Majors. He plays steady golf. He never seems to blow you away in a normal PGA format but in the Ryder Cup he was fabulous.

So, the Americans go home once again licking out wounds. I don’t know what the Americans could do better. I do think that there were a couple who should have been there but weren’t. The biggest name was Billy Horschel. He was playing the best golf in the world over the past month or so but he peaked too late for the Ryder Cup. I think that his passion and fire would have been great for the Americans who all looked a little flat. I also wonder from Brandt Snedeker would have been a better pick than Webb Simpson. Finally, Gary Woodland is an interesting player who was been solid all year. His game is really coming around. He could always bomb it off the

Working really, really hard in America under mediocre conditions is common. I just think that Americans should be treated better.

This presidential race is still close. It is very important for us to continue to work hard if we truly want progressive change in this country.

What if Israel bombed Iran?

I really don’t know why Romney has continually messed up. This is a guy who has wanted to be president for 20 years. He has put himself in position. He has talked to tons of people about the mechanics about how to win votes and run for president. Yet, I don’t understand simple decisions that the Romney campaign makes. If you aren’t going to release all of your taxes, then why do you continually bring it up? Why did he release some half tax return which will do nothing but stir up with waters?

Everyone thought that Romney would try to tack from the extreme right to the middle for the general election. We thought that he would try to appeal to independent voters. Nope. His 47% remark proves that he has decided to stay on the extreme right of his party.

Iraq has been a problem. It continues to be a problem.

NFL week 3 is here. The best game of the week may be the Ravens versus the Patriots. Falcons versus the Chargers will also be fun to watch.

The Fed Ex Championship at East Lake in Atlanta is golf at its best. Justin Rose and Brent Snedeker are tied for the lead. The course will be dry. The greens will be super fast. $10 million at stake!
