Seve Said he's Sick of Success
You know it isn't good when one of the best European Ryder Cup players ever is hoping that the Americans can notch a victory in the 2008 Ryder Cup so the thing isn't so damn boring.
Over at the Fanhouse they have the story, complete with a great quote.
"They need to win badly," said the five-time Major winner. "I hope the Americans win this year in all seriousness.
I find it very hard to believe that Seve really wants this to happen, but I can understand his point - hell, the Presidents Cup is more exciting than the Ryder Cup, which isn't good consider Mike Weir is involved.
I'm not trying to be an American homer, but I don't see this as complete European dominance, I just see it as their team has played better than ours at certain times the last few years. I think with the addition of people like Hunter Mahan and Zach Johnson you could see some young talent getting the team a little fired up. Oh, and we won't have Davis Love III there anymore, which isn't a horrible thing (third all time in matches lost, but Tiger is second, so, ya know...).
Anyway, mark this as the first of Ryder Cup trash talking - a really good European player is begging the Americans to win so people will be excited about it again.
