But, (you knew it was coming) didn't the antics display a, kinda, immature and over-the-top emotionalism? Didn't it seem that a few of the players reacted differently than they normally would? I get it, it was a big stage and Patrick Reed's emotional example from 2014 set the stage for outward displays of the "shush" signal, as evidenced by Rory and Sergio a few times, but, many of the players went overboard in their expressions, many times in response to the stupidity of the equally inappropriate behavior of USA and/or European hecklers. I don't know, just a comment on maturity and the state of our cultures, I guess.
So, yes, we won and I was mesmerized by the pageantry and artistry and, even, the sportsmanship of Rory and Patrick when they fist-pumped after matching birdies early in their Sunday lead-off match.
But, again, the immaturity of many of the players and, especially, the fans continues to leave an odd taste in my mouth that sours the sweet taste of Ryder Cup victory & history.
