I think it was during the Casio, when Wie missed the cut by one stroke. It was in the middle of the night, yet Chris Baldwin declined his sleep to bring us the breaking news straight away.

Funnily enough, when Wie is successful, Chris would rather catch up on his sleep and let someone else run the story.

Headlines in the Michelle Wie Tribune: "Euphoria sweeps Wie camp! Wie Warriors rioting in the streets! Chaos reigns! Norman is targeted for arrest as chief instigator! Authorities considering declaring martial law! Chris Baldwin, fearful for his life, goes into hiding! Alex traveling incognito to Zanzibar! Police fear that a Wie top ten could result in unprecedented mayhem!

The standard of play is high on the Asian Tour. But it still isn't the PGA Tour.

Kudos to Ms. Wie for making the cut! Maybe now she can focus on actually WINNING something. Making a cut is like getting a C in school, maybe even a C- since this is against inferior competition. So, against the LPGA, she's basically an A-, and against AA-level male players, she's a C.

It would be interesting to know how many 16-year-olds have ever made the cut on the Asian Tour. That would be a better measure as to where Wie stands than comparing her to other women who has tried since there have been so few.

The only thing I've been able to find out via Google is that the youngest male to make the cut was 14 years old.

My guess is that only a handful of males 16 and under have ever made the cut in a pro-event at this level. Female or not, that's quite an achievement.

Todd, perhaps if the LPGA would allow her to play in more tournaments, she would focus more on winning women's events.

In case you don't know, if Wie wasn't playing in the SK Telecom Open this weekend, she would not be competing in the current LPGA Tour event. Why not? Because she's already entered the maximum number of events the LPGA allows. What's she supposed to be doing? Sitting at home watching TV?

If she wins, I fear the Wie Warriors are gonna go "Zulu" on Baldie, Frank DeFord, and other Enemies of the People...

Nope, We will just be mailing in our favorite recipes for "Crow Meat Humble Pie" and "100 Condiments to Compliment Used Fedoras".

I hear 2006 may be a vintage year for "Bitter Tears of Gall";-)

Looking foward to it. Unfortunately, none of this will have any impact on Baldie, etal...his post today was about as irrational as ever.

Ken, if she wins , I will personally eat a gallon of goat excrement on the public square of Peoria and give you three hours to draw a crowd.

At least Alex was smart enough to bet on Michelle to make the cut.

Alex, I notice you don't specify whether you mean the Peoria in Illinois, the one in Arizona, or the one in Kansas;-)

Nor should the gentle reader be lead astray into presuming that any of those fine midwest to western cities (Well, city, town and cross-road respectively) are laid out on the New England Plan so as to actually possess a "public-square".

However, the offer is accepted in the spirit in which it is made. Which do you prefer Alex--Angora, Hungarian or American Mountain Goat?

How about the Booted Goat? Alex may want a swift kick in the pants every now and then to help him with his lunch.

I just had a Priest and some Nuns over to the new house for a blessing and I asked them all to pray for Michelle to shoot a 54 today and tomorrow so Alex could enjoy his meal.

God are you listening........?

Comment from: One-Putt [Visitor]
Man that Alex will do anything to avoid eating crap. He must have gotten his prayer logged before mine.

The SK play is cancelled for today (Rain) and the event shortened to 54 holes with the final round tomorrow.

Come on, Wolfie, you do know that the "girls" won't let her play with them except for 6 times a year--and she has those six times already scheduled/committed.

You know she cannot become a "girls" member until she is 18 and you know how many folks get so "PO'd" when she gets exemptions.

OK, so the field at the SK Telecom wasn't major league enough for you. Of course, if it were major league, the course would have been PGA-fixed; MW would not have shot 5 under, and/or the major leaguers would have set the cut line over 5 under and MW would have missed the cut. Isn't that much, even for you, Wolfie?

Let's not be too harsh on Baldie, Alex and the rest. They have been serving well for Wie's publicity and togetherness of Wie supporters.

They need to have their allies such as george and John D back in order to fight back the onslaught from Wie supporters because they are loosing their grounds as Wie improves on her golf and gets closer to her goal.

I think it is high time we showed our mercy on them as the battle is tipping toward our favor.

Brian, Please don't take this as anything but constructive criticism. The overuse of cliches does not add emphasis to your posts. I respectfully suggest that you attempt to be more creative in your writing. Thank you, Alex

Alex, thank you for proving my point very well. Your post just shows that you are running out of resources to belittle Wie's success.

I thought that this was not an online grammar or writing class, or was it?

hmmm.... kind of like the pot calling the kettle black, don't you think?
While I realize the use of cliches is not to your liking Alex, your over done hoopla of your first post was just a tad bit off the wall.

But then as long as Alex or Baldy do it, then it's alright.
Double standards at work!~!

Brian.
Alex may be a Barrister, lawyer or legal hack of some sort( read: Shyster), not sure but I have serious doubts.

Putting that aside, as much as he derides the rest of us for our command of the english language, his usage of the kings english is suspect at best.
And as far as Baldy is concerned.... well, let's not go there. The internet is just not a large enough venue to provide constructive criticism for that schmuck.

I think the only time Alex pulls off with decent argument is when he is talking about English grammar and writing. Please read through the following and you will understand.

Now see the difference? Whenever Alex is talking about Wie he apparently loses touch with reality and talks in gibberish babble.

John D, Perhaps Bubbles didn't win , but how about how she climbed up the leaderboard each day? 5 back after one round, 6 back T17 after two, 12 back T17 final. Too bad the 3rd round was washed out or Bubbles would have shown them!
