Wow! Michelle Wie Only 16 Strokes off the Lead
In an earlier post I pointed out how pathetic Michelle Wie’s performances have been and how worthless the media’s continued fixation with her is.
I thought I’d provide a Day 2 update of the LPGA’s US Open. Let’s see now. Oh look. Christie Kerr, last year’s winner is only two shots off the lead. Paula Creamer is also two shots off the lead. Amateur Maria Jose Uribe, is only three shots off the lead. Where oh where is Michelle Wie?
Only sixteen strokes off the lead after two rounds. Our local fish wrap the Pioneer Press showed pictures after the first day. Who has the biggest photo? Not Annika, not Lorena, not last year’s champion Christie Kerr. No Wie gets the column inches.
I’ll concede that Ms. Wie was only 2-over in the second round, but that was way too little too late. I think it is quite obvious that Michelle Wie is never going to amount to anything. She’s never going to vie for #1 in the world, she isn’t going to win a major and her sponsors are not going to want to be associated with a third tier player. Sponsors and fans want a winner and at some point, as her contracts expire, the gravy train she’s been riding is going to dry up.
Sports fans will tolerate bad behavior, habits and hygiene if it they get what they want - victories. As Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis said so eloquently, “Just Win, Baby.”
This baby will never do that.

Where would you like that break, your skull or your neck?
As for the ninth hole, no, it was not her problem. Even if Bubbles had parred that hole, she still would have missed the cut by two strokes.
Fred, you seem to have so glommed onto Bubbles that you regard criticism of her as a personal attack. But, face it, it should be obvious now even to the dullest among us that she is no phenom. She is a pretty good LPGA golfer, that's it. Yes, she does have the potential to be an excellent one, but so what? So do lots of other gals.
is the norm
not the exception
Oh, and you've really drunk the feminist Kool-Aid, haven't you? Calling women "gals" is tantamount to calling men "guys," and only a complete pinhead would think otherwise.
As for Bubbles, the point is that she was supposed to transcend Woods' greatness, in that she was to be an Amazon golfer who would topple sex barriers. And she and her family did their best to encourage this perception. So she deserves the criticism.
Fred: Is "gals" seriously sexist now? What about calling women over 21, "girls"? Demeaning? I'll stick to "women" and "females" to be safe.
Regarding this phenom in Michelle Wie. It's safe to say she's overrated beyond comprehension. Started her young career scoffing at the LPGA tour? Um, I think being a faorly good tour player is looking great just about now.
As an aside, I have no problem with women (PC'd up for you, Fred) on the PGA tour, absolutely none. But they do have to earn their place there. Michelle Wie? Not even close.
6'-9" and 350 pounds. There are meds available that can stunt your growth; otherwise, you are going to have some serious knee and joint issues awaiting you. The largest man ever on record grew to be 8'-11", but died at 22 years old and could not even stand up. By reading your posts about Wie, it is clear that your Brain has already been seriously damaged and is likely to be irreversable. But you may want to check into anti-growth meds, because you could likely break your neck or skull now just by falling down.
