They did it. They won. They beat up the unbeatable. It was pretty damn impressive.
I think the only way to describe this performance is summed up in one work, rookies. The young guns played like veterans and the country kids played like the really didn't have anything to lose. Like Boo Weekley said before the week, it isn't life or death. It was golf, and the Americans played better than their opponent.
This might be the proudest moment I've ever had as an athletic spectator. This team was given no chance and they acted like they've never logged into a chat room. They didn't care what you or I thought, they just wanted to win.
Congrats guys, you sure as hell earned it.
