Attitude versus analysis in Ryder Cup camps (Reuters)
By Larry Fine NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Ryder Cup often produces magical golf, team captains Davis Love III and Darren Clarke concur, but for 20 years it has mainly been European players wielding the magic wand. "It's just special, isn't it," Europe captain Clarke told Reuters in promoting on behalf of sponsors Standard Life Investments this year's competition to be played at Minnesota's Hazeltine course from Sept 30-Oct 2. "We saw a different Payne Stewart, a different David Duval when the Ryder Cup matches came around," added Love, summoning heroes of the past.

Ducks fire coach Bruce Boudreau after early playoff exit (Yahoo Sports)
The Anaheim Ducks fired coach Bruce Boudreau on Friday, two days after the four-time Pacific Division champions' first-round exit from the playoffs. While announcing the move, Ducks general manager Bob Murray expressed much more anger at his players than at Boudreau, who hasn't been able to pair postseason success with steady excellence in his two NHL jobs in Anaheim and Washington. Boudreau has won 409 regular-season games and eight division titles, but just five playoff rounds in his coaching career.
