Rory McIlroy Wins 2014 British Open, Gets Booed for Being Manchester United Fan

Rory McIlroy was a popular man at Royal Liverpool after winning the 2014 British Open at Hoylake—until he mentioned football.

McIlroy is a well-known Manchester United fan. 

In most of the world, a line about his football team would have gone by without a reaction.   

But then Liverpool isn't most of the world, so the crowd gave him a (friendly, we think) boo for mentioning the Red Devils as he held the Claret Jug.
