Sorry "You Suck" - It's completely true and all easily proven June 12, 2007, 8:43 pm

by Chris Baldwin
Sorry "You Suck", which is an appropriate moniker for yourself. Guys like you are the ones who give Michelle Wie a bad name.
One, it was only five questions. And five exactly. Wie was hustled out of there by her manager Greg Nared. Here's a link to an official LPGA transcript of her complete Thursday round one interview.
http://www.worldgolf.com/news/lpga/michelle-wie-bj-bo-lpga-championship-5512.htm
I know this could be tough for you, but try and count along with the questions. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ... done.
Two, I witnessed Wie's attempted walk away up close and also had the eyewitness of Scott Serio, one of the most well respected cops in Baltimore. Do a Google search on Scott Serio. See what you come up with. This guy doesn't lie.
Here's a few more details for you. It wasn't a golf ball. It was a glossy photo that Serio - a photographer before he became a cop and a darn good one - took himself of Wie. She tried to blow everyone off. Her dad stepped in. Good for her dad. And good for Wie for taking the advice.
Scott Serio and his daughter came to Bulle Rock the very next day to get more autographs from players on his photos. An LPGA official asked him if that's what happened and he said absolutely and once again praised Wie's dad for stepping in.
I also witnessed Wie's dad stepping in. So Sorry "You Suck". You obviously were not there. Try again. That garbage is not working here. You have one of the most respected cops in Baltimore who went through this with this reporter watching.
You're not going to be able to Wie out of this one. And by the way, Team Wie is not disputing it.
Side note, since you seem determined on dragging Wie down. Serio and his 4-year-old daughter had no trouble getting the autographs of any other player. Including Annika who had her five-person burly security force.

You are lying, Baldwin June 12, 2007, 3:34 am

If this icident is about Thursday (since you mentioned 5 hr and half on the course and also based on the photo, it has to be Thursday), then you are lying again, Baldwin. I was there too.
First of all, LPGA official doesn't cut the interview session after mere 5 questions like you said. After first giving her interview with Mike Rits from TGC, she was surrounded by 20 some reporters and kept answering questions. The whole media session at the scorer's tent lasted about 20 mintue or more. Here you were lying.
Secondly, there was about 30 people or more waiting in line for signing while she was giving her interview. Number dwindle to some 20 by the time the interview ends. Right after the interview, she came to the waitiing line and gave everybody who were still there her signature. Obvioulsy i could have missed the incident with 4 years old but I haven't heard her saying "I won't sign".
If she indeed said "I wouldn't sign", it would probably have to do with signing golf ball, which for whatever reason a lof of player (PGA or LPGA) won't sign.
So I believe that even if that 4 years old story is true, I know you are not telling the whole story without your own agenda. Get the stroy right.

My question is who is responsible for these leeches(team Wie)?
If it is not BJ, who?

Good story, as I watch the news media circle Michelle like a pack of wolves sensing weakness in a deer. I cannot help but wonder if any of them noticed a 17 year old girl make the cut in a major tournement against the best women players in the world....without using her driver.
Michelle needs the LPGA, but they need her even more.

Hey, Chris, thanks for the story. Michelle needs more wise counsel like what she received from her father. Just something from the heart and Mr. Wie did what he needed to do as a parent--teaching his teen age daughter valuable and grounded life's lessons.
Being 17 is still being 17 and there's still that natural tendency to be a teen ager no matter how many endorsements she has. Her world is just opening up and she still needs her mom and dad probably more than ever right now, as it seemed like the the Wie's just by themselves were doing fine until acquiring such a large entourage. What do these people all do besides ride along in SUV's?
Liked the story very much, Chris.
