Truth & Rumors: Euros party in style after Ryder Cup win
Francesco Molinari channeling Marilyn Monroe. Rory McIlroy finding his inner Flava Flav. Golfers outdrinking Darren Clarke.
All part of the Europeans' plan to turn Illinois into Ibiza after their shocking comeback, according to Brian Keogh of Irish Golf Desk, who filed a report from the morning after.
"They had a good time," Vice Captain Clarke, who chided himself for bowing out after a mere four glasses of wine, told Keogh. "I’m not sure what state Lee Westwood is in, but I’m sure he’s not the only one."
Judging from what Mike Kerr, Westwood's caddie had to say, that state is worse for wear: “I couldn’t tell you what time the party broke up," Kerr was quoted as saying, "The big joke all night was that it didn’t matter what time we went to bed, because we were all on Rory time.”
It's easy to stay on Rory time, of course, when Rory himself is strolling through the party wearing his large, neck-mounted time-piece.
Former DJ (and one-time indulgence enthusiast) Nicolas Colsaerts was on the 1s and 2s, and…we'll let him speak for himself:
“I haven’t slept. But I’ll be alright. This used to be my first job so it’s okay.”
Asked where the party ranked, he said: “It was just the length of it, the intensity of it after all that work.
“We were just stretching it out and stretching it out. I don’t know how bumpy this plane ride is going to be but I might give it 10 out of 10.
“It was just a good old fashioned party with drinks flying in the air and other stupid stuff going on.
“There were a few Diana Ross wigs and things like that. Frankie Molinari was wearing a blonde one which made him look like Marilyn Monroe!"
We can sympathize with "Frankie," and his impending shame. Can't wait for Colsaerts to upload his Ryder Cup photo album to Facebook. Working title: "Me-WIN-ah."
