You probably already know that U.S. Open winner (and world No. 2) golfer Rory McIlroy and world No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki are involved in the 21st century's most visible cross-sports romance, the present-day equivalent of Nomar Garciaparra and Mia Hamm (we won't say Greg Norman/Chris Evert, because that didn't end so well). They're all cute and kissy and whatnot in a way that only insanely rich and famous young people can be, so we say good on 'em. Do what you will, kids.
Like this, the custom club McIlroy gave Wozniacki, which she tweeted on Tuesday. It's emblazoned with "Wozzilroy," which is either a.) cute and precious, b.) a weird kind of passive marriage proposal, or c.) the lamest Muppet ever created. She indicated that a racket from Yonex is on the way, and if it doesn't have "McIacki" on it, we're going to be a tiny bit disappointed.
Yep, it's a little slow in the golf world these days.
