• PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES A bunch of baloney.

• HURRICANES Phew! We got caught with our pants down.

• RYDER CUP The Presidents Cup thins out the desire.

• TIGER AS VICE CAPTAIN Pointless.

• EUROPEANS AS UNDERDOGS Until they're playing for as much money as we are, they're always going to have something to prove.

• PHIL'S CLUB SWITCH It made it look as if he didn't care too much about his teammates.

• TAMPA BAY BUCS I'm a fair-weather fan. Two years ago I was a huge fan. I don't care much this year.
