Rory McIlroy To Parade Claret Jug At Manchester United Game

Well, maybe sharing he’s a Manchester United fan with the folks at Royal Liverpool wasn’t such a bad idea for Rory McIlroy. He was booed heavily following his victory at the Open Championship, not because the fans were unhappy he won, but because he’s a fan of the wrong team.  It’s like throwing out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium and saying “Go Red Sox!” That usually...
