"I've been waiting about 20 years to get the call"

You can just feel the excitement of the outdoor Today Show crowd as Matt Lauer introduces Ted Bishop of the PGA who reveals Tom Watson as the 2014 Ryder Cup Captain nearly two years out.

The video and post announcement coverage from GolfChannel.com.

Can anyone think of a worse possible venue -- excluding the NBC angle? Well, OK, maybe Larry Nelson's den, but other than that, no.

Wonder what the over/under was on the percent of layabout housewives on vacation that knew who Tom was? 10%? NBC never fails to fail.

Matt Lauer stole Sobel's haircut.

Haircut ?!? I think he's got the mange.

Quick, someone pour some sand in Matt's divot before the growing season....

From that headline I begin to think that Watson had more than a little to do with redefining this box the PGA is so ready to think outside. (Such an overworked, late 20th century, cliché).

A lesson in campaigning for the next contenders -- the subtlety is worthy of a Shakespearean villain. Euros be warned. This guy is capable, despite the gap-toothed, freckled aw-shucksery, of darting like an asp.
