ers and players share the kind of moment that oc

Graham DeLaet may not have won the Barclays on Sunday, but his performance did help him in a few significant ways. First, the Weyburn, Saskatchewan product climbed inside the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Hes now at 48, the highest of his career. If he were to hold that spot at the end of this season, hed earn a slew of benefits, such as entry to the World Golf Championship events as well as The Masters. The bigger boost for DeLaet, however, is that he moved to 10th on the Presidents Cup ranking. The team will be announced next week, following the Deutsche Bank Championship. Theres a very good chance that DeLaet will hold 10th spot, in which case hed earn a place on the team. He could potentially be passed by a player such as Tim Clark, who is in the field at the Deutsche Bank, or Tongchai Jaidee, who is playing the European Tours stop in Wales, which he won last year. But even 11th might be good enough. At the moment, Louis Oosthuizen is ranked fifth but hes been on the shelf since the start of August and isnt expected to return to action until the end of September. Whether hed be ready to play in the Presidents Cup after a two-month layoff is something captain Nick Price will no doubt bring up with the popular South African. If he sits out, that would bring the 11th-place finisher onto the team. And even if all of that came to fruition, youd have to think that DeLaet, with six top-10s this year, would be a captains pick for Price. DeLaet said making the Presidents Cup team was one of his top goals for 2013 and it appears its one hes going to achieve. Hed be just the second Canadian on that squad after Mike Weir, who played on five teams. Not to be overlooked is the fact that DeLaet is sitting seventh in the FedEx Cup standings. It would appear that barring a total collapse in the next two events, hell be in the field for the Tour Championship. That means a good payday and also loads of exemptions for next season, including all four majors.

There was the audacious 50-yard swerving, fizzing turf-trimming ball played from Pedro Morales to Gershon Koffie in the first half. There was another solid Darren Mattocks performance where, despite not finding the scoresheet, the young Jamaican played a huge role in both Whitecap goals. And there was goalkeeper David Ousted, who faced 26 Dynamo crosses, but staved off a big, physical Houston team with strong hands and a commanding presence. But none of those moments generated the kind of reaction that Kenny Miller garnered after the game was over. It was a moment that went viral, appeared on local newscasts, and revealed an aspect of sporting culture not often witnessed in North American arenas. The "Humba" begin in the German carnival town of Mainz, and gained momentum when Lucas Podolski grabbed the bullhorn and led his nations supporters in song after Germany dispatched Portugal during the quarter-final round of the 08 European Championship. Its rare in sport to see supporters and players share the kind of moment that occurred Saturday afternoon. Its even more intriguing when a Gerrman tradition, led by a former Scottish international, takes place in a Canadian stadium.dddddddddddd Seeing a shirtless Kenny Miller, the game-winning penalty hero, asking his adoring throng to "give him an H" was as symbolic as it was enamoring. He was in fact naked among the paying public. Stripped down of his past achievements, his fame, his designated player status. At that moment, Kenny Miller was among them, celebrating a hard earned victory. It was a scene more reminiscent of a concert, with the lead singer joining the crowd, before being surfed back to the stage. Apart from the "Lambeau Leap", what other sporting circumstance brings the fans, and the stars so close together? Creating a bond, and appreciating the sporting customer is a rare occurrence in North America where the economic divide between pro athlete and paying public seems to be getting wider with every collective bargaining agreement. The big corporate nature of sport doesnt often inspire brand to mix with consumer so spontaneously. If the Humba tradition catches on in Vancouver, lets hope the spirit of humility and genuine fan appreciation that Kenny Miller showed on Saturday is merely the beginning of something much bigger.
