The United States took a commanding lead over the European squad at the 2012 Ryder Cup on Saturday. (UPDATE: They blew it.)
That’s somewhat surprising, given that American golfers don’t usually excel at the team pairings portion of the event. But the inspired hometown play wasn’t nearly as surprising as the duo that showed up together in the gallery to watch the action: George W. Bush and Michael Jordan. Awesome.
Bush, you may remember, used to be president of the United States. And Jordan was selected as a Ryder Cup adviser (his advice: bet a lot?), so his appearance at the event outside his hometown of Chicago makes sense. But seeing this duo together is just a terrific image.
George Bush (41) also attended this weekend’s Ryder Cup, though so far there are no Twitpics or Instagram photos of his sitting in the VIP gallery next to Honus Wagner’s corpse.
