Golf Community Alert: From now on, it's Mi-Wie
Having seen the leggy rara avis that is Heather McMichael comment that nothing may be deemed a golf blog without two mentions of Michelle Wie, I realized some important things.
First of all, trust me on this, be happy that Chris Baldwin is fixated on Michelle Wie (that made my quota). If it wasn’t for her, he’d be writing about his laundry, an electric bill that seemed slightly higher than normal, his favorite cereal (Frosted Flakes, extra sugar), etc. Seriously, talk to the guy on the phone, you’ll want to gnaw your arm off to escape.
More importantly, however, I realized that all this “Michelle Wie” stuff is nonsense. This is the era of the hyphenated abbreviation, people! From here on out, I deem that Michelle Wie be known by just one name.
I’m willing to even go with “Mi-Wi” but I think that might be pushing it.
Yeah, too arrogant.
Oh, this is going to be big. I can see this catching on immediately. And the best part is, she’s just 16. We have until about the year 2100 or so to listen to it. C’mon, say it, just once. You’ll never go back to the old way.

Mr. Wolfrum, you are too funny! Mi-Wie (Mi-Wi)is a joke right? I think she prefers just plain ole Michelle. Kinda like in the song by the Beetles. Thank you.
Yeah, I can understand she likes being called by her actual name, but Mi-Wie is in the big time now. Like J-Lo.
My biggest dream now is that Mi-Wie starts dating Matt Damon. Then we can call them "WieMon".
It took you Three separate posts to come up with that??
I mean, sure, there's a whole fringe group of Iowa hunters who follow me around who think the "Ahh-Sh**" line was wildly hilarious, but the rest of us blanched, my friend
Extreme contractions become popular when the name is somewhat long and common. No one will want to keep saying "Alex Rodriguez", "Jennifer Lopez" etc.
With a last name "Wie", you don't really need a contraction. Simply "Wie" will work just fine. There ain't no other Wie in mainstream media to cause confusion.
For a 'nickname', "Big Wiesy" is here to stay.
I must admit that is good. Plus, it will make every child in the U.S. under the age of 12 giggle uncontrollably when they hear it.

Oh yeah, this has possibilities.
