Solheim Cup brings out the best and worst in people

Well, the Internet seems to live forever, doesn’t it? Things that happened years ago are “news” to those who never saw them before. So was the case with the Irish Independent’s story about Catrin Nilsmark’s remarks about Cristie Kerr being a “brat” and Michelle Redman “having no talent”. I posted it yesterday because it was published in yesterday’s paper like it was current news. I guess the translation from Swedish to English they had was a little “outdated”.

I was browsing around and came across this posting from Waggle Room:

How the Solheim Cup Became Very Serious, Very Fast (Hint: Dottie Pepper)

First, let me say that I really enjoyed the post. I wasn’t a golf addict until a few years ago, so a lot of this was news to me. I really like Dottie Pepper on the air (I wish I had seen her play more), but had no idea that the other ladies didn’t like her. Interesting. But it doesn’t change my opinion of her. I think she’s cool.

Anyway…back to my point. I found out from this post that Catrin said those catty things back in 2002 – not this year. Hmmm…I wonder if she feels the same today? Oh well…still nasty regardless of when it was said.

But a piece of news that is current is Laura Davies saying that all the gals on the US team were her friends, except one – but of course, she wouldn’t say which one. I expect it is one of the older ladies – it takes time to “not” be someone’s friend. Anyone know who it is????

Anyway…I really enjoyed the Solheim Cup coverage this AM. The weather was pretty brutal at times, but the players hit some amazing shots. The excitement came through the TV for me.

And although I said I wasn’t going to do this…I am watching the Fedex Cup – and that 28 of Tiger’s on the front nine today was amazing. birdie birdie birdie birdie birdie birdie…BORING! (NOT!!!!!) đŸ™‚

Enjoy the weekend everyone. I’ll be back on Monday.
