Tiger Woods should just buy Ireland

Forget every single thing you've ever read about Tiger's history of mediocre Ryder Cup performances. Ignore the "not a team player" criticism because it does not apply anymore. This year's Cup is no longer about the team. It's about Tiger and nobody else. Some douche bag newspaper editor in Ireland just did the one thing that gives you no hope when you have to go against El Tigre. He made the whole thing personal.

From the September issue of The Dubliner:
"Most American golfers are married to women who cannot keep their clothes on in public. Is it too much to ask that they leave them at home for the Ryder Cup? Consider the evidence. Tiger Woods' wife can be found in a variety of sweaty poses on porn sites."

Oh, and just to really hammer home the point, the paper published this nonsense next to a nude photo that it claimed was of Tiger's wife. It wasn't...gulp.

And Elin wasn't the only wife singled out by name. Half the U.S. team just had their families publicly ridiculed. They are a group of guys who have lost two straight Cups including the largest-ever margin of defeat in '04, and during those losses the main complaint was the Americans lacked the emotion, unity, and motivation of the Europeans. Think that will be a problem this time around?

And then there's Tiger. His wife (who ironically happens to be from Sweden, which does happen to be in Europe) is the centerpiece of the entire controversy, and he is one of the few- Kobe is the only other guy that springs to mind - modern athletes that possess that Jordan-esque will to destroy as soon as a personal challenge has been issued. The Europeans had better pray that the weather postpones this thing, because Tiger is in Ireland looking for the kill.

I can't wait to watch it.
