    Rory McIlroy is totally dominating through two rounds, shooting an Open record -11. He's been in the lead in most recent majors before falling back, spectacularly so on the back nine at Augusta. But he's shown great resiliency and toughness to go with his tremendous talent and I think he'll close the deal this time and become a full-fledged superstar at the age of 22.

    I am sure the American media and Jewish owned sponsors as Nike will do anything possible to hold this kid down from a super star status inside the US, exactly like they do with all the white soccer super stars, all these elite white boxers, white basketball players who smash Negro team of USA in the international competitions, formula-1 stars, and so on.<div>
    </div><div>They won't even televise the Klitschkos all those years, are you kidding? No way this kid can be a super star in the negro loving country and media of the US.</div>

    You're pretty much correct, however the U.S. golf media and U.S. golf fans aren't as bad as in other sports when it comes to recognizing non-U.S. talent, in large part because other than the media's idol Tiger Woods all the top players are White other than a few Asians. Phil Mickelson made $57 million in endorsements last year and is now nipping at Woods' heels ($60 million in endorsements in '10 and dropping). Mickelson is the second highest earning U.S. athlete after Woods: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/specials/fortunate50-2011/?sct=hp_t2_a6&amp;eref=sihp







    Lots of golfers do commercials for golf equipment companies, and non-Americans pop up frequently on them. Gary Player and Greg Norman were extremely popular in the U.S. during their careers, and playerssuch asPadraig Harrington, Sergio Garcia, Luke Donald, Ernie Els, Adam Scott and others are quite popular on the PGA Tour. The galleries at the U.S. Open are cheering on McIlroy like crazy, so although the U.S. media will never give him anywhere near the hype Woods has received -- and will continue to receive for a long time even if he never wins another tournament -- McIlory will become a golfing star in the U.S. if he wins the Open after making his mark in majors over the past year.Edited by: Don Wassall

    McIlroy continues to tear up the record book. He has an 8 shot lead at -14 after three rounds. No one had ever been more than -12 at any point in a U.S. Open before.

    The galleries love him. Tomorrow should be the coronation of a present star and possible future all-time great. Rory may just be the breakthrough White star that we have been waiting for ever since the emergence of Tiger Woods.

    The fans have been fantastic in cheering on Rory, it's great to see.
    I can't wait to see and hear the reception he'll get on 18. This is so great after 15 years of non-stop Woods adulation by the media and a good chunk of the fans. It's also pretty cool to realize how long ago Woods' top performances are -- 14 years since his big Masters win and 11 years since his U.S. open runaway. And still not a single other good black golfer anywhere in the top 500 or so players.

    I know he's considered "black" by everyone outside of Thailand, but I still believe that if his dad had married another black woman, all things else being equal, he may have ended up as an above average golfer, but nowhere near the level he attained.

    Wow, great shot by McElroy to get back on the green for a birdie on the 16th to get back to -17.

    I agree. Woods should be referred to either as mixed or Asian. There's not another major sport that highlights the deficiencies of black athleticismas does golf. If Woods was of pure negro blood he wouldn't be good enough to be a pro golfer.

    Great, great performance by Rory McIlroy.

    The only American on the first page of the leader board was someone named Kevin Chappell. I follow golf closely and had never heard of him before. That makes five straight majors won by non-Americans,the last fourof themstillin their 20s. Edited by: Don Wassall

    Rory was awesome and looks like a real consistent player who could dominate for quite a while. A few more record breaking performances like today and the fans will be happy to only see Tiger in the proverbial rear view mirror.

    Way to burn up Congressional, Rory! Best of luck for further success from a fellow (ethnic) Irishman (well, on my mother's side I am) of lifelong US citizenship and residency.

    I think it's safe to say that golf's next superstar was born today. I don't want to get too carried away and start any Jack Nicklaus or Woods comparisons, but this kid is extremely talented. I was also impressed the way he was treated by the fans, that was good stuff.

    Oh, and before I forget, somewhere, Rick Reilly is crying his eyes out, clinging to his Tiger Woods blow-up doll, and realizing that his boyfriend is now on his way to being replaced as the top golfer in the world by this new White phenom, who looks to be the winner of many, many majors to come.

    Congratulations to Rory McIlroy on winning the U.S. Open in record fashion! Tiger who?[​IMG]

    As for the pledge of allegiance, sure they didn't mean to offend anyone by their intentional editing out of the dreaded phrase "under God." Horsefeathers! They did it on purpose just to slap Christians in the face. Most Christians won't think a thing about it, just as usual. Sad.

    On the rare occasion when I do say the pledge, I never say "indivisible" because I don't believe it. I probably shouldn't say "with liberty and justice for all" either, because I don't believe that is the case. To me, the U.S. flag is little more than a tainted, disgraced rag anyway.

    It was rather amusing to watch the Affirmative Action ESPN anchors stutter and squirm with revulsion as they half-heartedly made statements such as: "Rory McIlroy is the future of golf,"Â￾ "McIlroy is the heir apparent to Tiger,"Â￾ and "McIlroy is a young phenom the likes of which hasn't been seen since, well, Tiger Woods burst onto the scene."Â￾ Their remarks rang true; however, it's fascinating to observe the fact that every golf-related statement, no matter how unrelated, must be inherently complimentary of Tiger's achievements (now his distant past).

    In the aftermath of the 2011 U.S. Open, the mainstream media News-Jews must be soundly frightened of the extraterrestrial potential of the youthful white Irishman. When a young Tiger Woods "burst onto the scene,"Â￾ his competition was mostly American golfers well past their prime (with much fewer Europeans, Asians, South Americans, White South Africans, etc.). McIlroy is now playing a global game, against global competition, in which any player whatsoever could potentially dominate the field at any given tournament. But, of course, given his age, McIlroy appears to have the most potential of all.

    McIlroy's most recent ascendancy is in conspicuous contrast to their 1/8th Afro-sweetheart, who has fallen so very far from his contrived, heavenly roost. Winless in Majors since the 2008 U.S. Open, winless in invitational play since the 2009 Bridgestone, appropriately disgraced in colossal tabloid-style scandals, dropped from corporate sponsorships and perpetually-injured"¦"Tiger, Inc."Â￾ is vanishing into the gray void of artificial mass-consciousness. Should he continue on such a course, the extinction of the Black Tiger will be imminent. Considering his gargantuan fury of self-absorption, I strongly doubt that this corporate hooker will wither (like the weed he truly is) without a fight for dignity.

    I was watching the end of the tourniment and cheering Rory on, my son came by (hates golf like many kids his age) and saw a young white guy similar to himself winning big, he asked me what does he get for winning? Besides the trophy? That and a million dollars plus I told him. He then asked if we could go to the driving range. [​IMG]

    Sally Jenkins, the Washington Post columnist said (the quote may not be exact):

    "it's nice to have a golfing hero who doesn't view the world as his personal spitoon"

    I read today it had the worst US ratings of a US Open final day since at least 1996. No suspense, no Americans, no Tiger. Rory has a good personality though and is sure to win more so maybe in time he'll become an attraction to ordinary Americans. Or...maybe the DWFs will hate him for taking Tiger's place.

    The Big Three (Obama, LeBron, and Tiger) aren't doing so well this year.

    Yet another example of US Military worship involved in yet another US sporting event, just like the NFL, MLB, etc. Funny how I don't remember seeing any of this stuff 10, 20, 30, etc. years ago. How about a backdrop scrolling the Bill of Rights of our Constitution while these kids were taking this pledge instead? This was not unintentional. They simply felt they could get away with it, without any complaints by the sheeple, by doing it this way. The question is why they did it and who authorized it?

    I believe the ultimate goal goes something like this, starting at mark 4:15 - 4:54:
