Lindsey Vonn, right, girlfriend of Tiger Woods, hands a small squirrel to Davis Love III while they watch the last four-ball match of the day at the Presidents Cup golf tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club on Thursday in Dublin, Ohio. Love found the squirrel earlier in the day and kept it in his cart during the matches.

Sammy the Squirrel stars at President's Cup

Sammy hangs out with Tiger.

All of a sudden you need Marlin Perkins and Jim Fowler to negotiate Sportsworld.

First you've got Joe Maddon, America's favorite baseball manager (or if he isn't, he should be), bringing penguins into the Tampa Bay Rays clubhouse last spring.

Now you've got Davis Love III, the U.S. captain in the President's Cup, driving around with a live squirrel in his pocket as the team's unofficial mascot. Dubbed, "Sammy," he even made a guest appearance on Tiger Woods' shoulder.

Who, being Tiger, looked annoyed and tried him off as his teammates broke up laughing.

When last heard from, Sammy was being taken to the Columbus (O.) Zoo to hang out with notable animal lover Jack Hanna. And no doubt to being collaboration on a dual autobiography with this guy.
