On FOX News earlier today an anchor told us how she really felt about Irish golfer Rory McIlroy and, spoiler alert, she does not find him magical or delicious. After teasing a segment involving a doctor who would discuss McIlroy's ankle injury and his chances for playing in the upcoming British Open, a woman was heard off screen saying "He's a leprechaun, I can't stand him."

To the extent that hatred is an irrational emotion, this makes total sense. To the extent that a FOX News reporter can't stand a person because he is like a creature that does not exist, this also makes total sense.

McIlroy broke the injury news on Instagram earlier today under a picture of himself standing on crutches. "Total rupture of left ATFL (ankle ligament) and associated joint capsule damage in a soccer kickabout with friends on Saturday." A spokeswoman for McIlroy later released a statement putting his chances for defending his British Open title at 10 percent.
