Generally speaking, you can expect stadiums to be jam-packed full of teeming and gross humanity: Cheering, screaming, singing throngs of people who have gathered together to pay $75 for parking and sit in four hours of endless postgame gridlock to enjoy the communal experience of things like rooting for the Cleveland Browns, I guess. What happens when you find yourself in a stadium that’s mostly empty, because the team is hot garbage, because they got bounced out of the playoff race, because they play football in Los Angeles, because you elected to buy Indiana football season tickets for some reason? It’s an eerie feeling, sitting in a place designed for tens of thousands and being surrounded by a couple hundreds, with every whistle, boo and call echoing off the empty seats.
Scottish veteran Catriona Matthew said it was a "dream come true" being named captain of the Europe team for the 2019 Solheim Cup which will be held on the renowned Gleneagles course in Scotland.

"It's a great honour and a dream come true to be the captain at home in Scotland," Matthew told the Ladies European Tour website.
