Man, that warms the cockles on a cold October morning. I think the Seppos even top the English for misguided sporting hubris.
My favourite bits:

Amazing days play with some brilliant play and monumental chokes from the spetics
Woods missed a 2 footer to win. Say what you want it was ****ing funny. Meant that Europe won outright rather than simply retaining by drawing too. It was brilliant.
That was simply the greatest night of sport I have ever had the privilege to witness. Loved the fightback, never expected to win it but was proud how they gave it a go. To eventually get over the line and see a couple of games turn from 1 down after 16 to wins was amazing. Can't wait till Gleneagles when the crap tee shots by the Yanks WILL get punished.
Well done Manassero, earnt me 180 quid as I was asleep.:D
A mate of mine who I used to play golf with got his spot on the PGA Tour next year after many years of slogging it out on the Web.com Tour. Finished 15th this year to automatically qualify for the step up. He's worked his arse off and is a top bloke, would love to see him go well next year.
Good to see Scott win the Oz Masters but sad to see how far the tourney has fallen
Used to attract a very high quality field (hint to organisers: dont schedule it on the same weekend as 2 European Tour events, you dumb ****s) and got great TV ratings
This event only had a few world class players and they literally couldnt give the coverage away for free to the commercial channels
IMG run the Masters, while one of their main competitors is used by the main Australian golfing body to run every other tournament; so the Masters in the last two years has been treated as the poor cousin.
Anyone watching the Australian Open?
Windy 4th round. Crazy stuff.
Play the ball as it lies.
The mate I mentioned above came tied for 7th at the Aussie Open this week. His name's Scott Gardiner, he's been in a few of the papers the last couple of weeks after qualifying for the PGA Tour. As I said above, lovely bloke and hope he goes well in the US.
