European Ryder Cup team passes drinks at press conference

http://youtube.com/watch?v=J8NtEXIacbk

The most surreal aspect of this year's Ryder Cup may have been the drunken European press conference well after the compettion had concluded and much partying had begun.  Unfortunately, I tuned in late, only after a couple texts from my brother about Sergio Garcia slurring his words and Lee Westwood nearly falling out of his chair.  Thankfully, I was able to catch this clip of Garcia passing drink after drink after drink to his teammates along the table.  Whoever sits to Garcia's right tried to get him to down his glass while answering a question at the same time (and gave Sergio bunny ears later on).  Safe to say you're not going to see this kind of press conference anywhere else in sports.  And really, is having a drink or two (or twelve) at one of these mundane pressers a bad idea?  Anything to loosen up all the tight-lipped, dictatorial coaches around sports is a good thing as far as I'm concerned.
