Anthony Kim To ESPN's Jason Sobel -- 'Me and Phil Have Talked About Playing Together'
For some odd reason, ESPN gets more interviews than I do. I know, it's strange to me as well. Anyway, the always great Jason Sobel of ESPN sat down with American hopeful Ryder Cup hero Anthony Kim, asking him a few questions, including who he'd like to be paired with.
Q: On Thursday of Ryder Cup week, captain Paul Azinger hands you a blank lineup card for the week and tells you to fill in the names of your playing partners. Whose name do you write down?
A: Eleven other guys on the team.
Q: C'mon, give me somebody.
A: Well, Phil [Mickelson] and I have talked about playing together, so he's very high on the list. Jim Furyk, a veteran. Boo Weekley and I have become good friends. Really, everybody who has made the team I have become really good friends with before making this team, so it's hard to pick just one.
Now that gets me scratching my chin. Could Mickelson and Kim pair together? We all remember the disaster that was Mickelson-Woods in 2004, right? We also remember that Mickelson goes by FIGJAM by some on tour?
Hey, at least Kim said they've been talking about it. I sure hope it would work out because it would be awesome to watch, but I'm pretty sure that Phil would play better with lesser known names. Ben Curtis, you're listening, right?
