Other than the Superbowl and the Olympics, this is, IN MY OPINION*, the most important sporting/athletic event in the world:
Presidents Cup organizers are billing this week’s event in Virginia as “Unfinished Business,” a reference to the dramatic tie in the 2003 event in South Africa. When the event begins today with a starry opening pairing featuring Tiger Woods, 24 players and two captains will be hoping not only for victory but also the kind of theater that will elevate the team match-play competition to the status enjoyed by the Ryder Cup.
With eight of the top 10 players in the world here this week, there will be plenty of talent all over the 7,335-yard, par-72 course, and today’s alternate shot competition will open in a big way.
And as further proof that there is no God, the Yankees are in first place again in the AL East.

I am a blithering idiot and don’t know why any of you even read me. In my rush to post before class, I confused the Ryder Cup and the President’s Cup.
What a maroon. The Ryder Cup IS important.
