Who woulda thunk it! The HSBC Champions, played in beautiful Shanghai, China, has some funny people behind the scenes.

Equipped with one of the sneakiest best fields this week, the tournament directors had to make sure to pair a few of the best with each other, and what better way to do that than to get a few guys that hate each other together, right?

That's why the pairing of Anthony Kim and Robert Allenby is so funny. As you may remember wayyyy back in 2009, the two played a singles match in the Presidents Cup against each other.

Kim smoked Allenby like he was a Prop. 19 prop on Sunday of the Americans win in San Francisco, only to have the Australian say the following about Kim's nightlife.

"Maybe we should all take the theory of Anthony Kim," he said. "Get home at 4 o'clock (in the morning) and then go shoot 6 under."

Allenby tried to sidestep the comments after they were dropped, but there it is, out there in the open, and the two will be together for a couple of sure-to-be snugly days in China starting Thursday.

Now, any chance we can get Tiger Woods and the guy that installs fire hydrants paired together at some point? Draaaamaaa!
