In response to Ian Poulter’s question, the triumphant ’08 American Ryder Cup captain Paul Azinger tweeted on Thursday night:

Hey..@Ianjamespoulter Is it to late to ask a question? I was busy polishing this. http://yfrog.com/n8poexj

And no words necessary for this priceless image (where the above link is directed) — well, actually, Pat Perez’s reaction sums it up appropriately.
