Wie, Webb, Pak make LPGA way more exciting than the Vijay and the boys on Sunday
I don’t know if it was because a major championship was on the line, or because I’ve always found Asian women cute (a little of both of course) but I was giving the LPGA way more viewing attention on Sunday than Vijay and the boys in New York.
And I’m still not sure whether to be impressed or not with Michelle Wie’s good-but-not-winning finishes at her youth. I suppose as long as she’s playing with the women where she belongs (for the next decade at least) I must commend her, even though down the stretch she still showed signs she’s got a little “Shark” in her (sorry, Greg).
As far as the rest of the sporting world, I still can’t watch the NBA Finals (too painful) and I can’t believe Iran was on ABC and USA plays on ESPN2 tomorrow in the World Cup. C’mon, we can’t postpone Maury and Days of our Lives a couple hours???
As for me, I’m headed to Gaylord, Michigan this week to see what’s new in America’s Summer Golf Capital. Stay tuned.

Do you remember that other kid--the guy--who sprayed his tee shots all over the place at the most inopportune times and could not sink a three-footer when it counted?
I can remember yelling at the TV, "You're seeing breaks that aren't there!" or "The breaks aren't that big!" or "For crying out loud, groove your swing!"
I found myself yelling at the TV at today's kid--only its a young girl.
I was impressed with the other kid--the guy--because he used to win.
I'm impressed with today's kid--the young girl--because she can do so many "awesome" things with her golf clubs. I just wish she could avoid the inopportune "oops!"
By the way, to the average person, Karrie Webb and Se Ri Pak are no-names.
In other words, if she ends up winning a bunch in the 30-odd years she's got left to play, all these near misses won't mean squat. Of course if she doesn't, they won't really mean squat either.
