Now that he's patched things up with Rory McIlroy--well, until Rory's lawyers drop a few more requests for personal info--you'd think Graeme McDowell might have gone quietly as sort of the utility man that was the other Team Europe MVP after Justin Rose.
(BTW, I just don't know what else to say about the Getty Images shot posted at the Daily Mail featuring The Litigators, McIlroy and McDowell, other than I'm moved to see Northern Irishman proudly holding up a defaced flag of their home nation.)
Instead, GMac used Sunday's euphoria to ask Captain Paul McGinley to set aside his differences with Darren Clarke, who we recently learned backstabbed the current captain, and smooth the way for the Northern Irishman to be the next European Captain, even though he falls on most people's lists somewhere between Monty and a hologram of Henry Cotton, especially with huge personalities like Miguel Angel and Paddy waiting in the wings.
"Darren and Paul should put their differences aside," said McDowell.
Darren needs to spend some time talking to Paul about the way he [McGinley] has conducted himself this week.
"Paul commanded a huge amount of respect in the team room and was the best captain I have ever played under by far and that's no disrespect to any of the other captains."
So why not Paul again?
