Brandi Chastain slaps Wie Warriors, recognizes who needs to replace LPGA boss Caroyln Bivens: Me
Brandi Chastain - one of the most famous female athletes in the world (hey, you try and rip your shirt off with that much skill after scoring a World Cup clinching goal) - obviously knows a thing or two about what makes women’s sports work.
While TravelGolf.com National Golf Editor Tim McDonald effectively details why the LPGA needs a new commissioner in a column which has received only slightly less promotion than Spiderman 2, he misses the obvious solution on Bivens’ replacement.
One that Brandi Chastain would whole heartedly endorse. One that would send the Wie Warriors, already reeling from having to now completely reverse course and peck, “Well, who can expect this poor 16-year-old to finish in the top five, let alone win - we’re not still talking winning are we” - in the wake of the Women’s British Open, into an apocalyptic fit. One that pretends to enjoy McDonald’s swampland home stories over a Denny’s French Slam.
It’s as transparent as the plot of M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie. I should be the new LPGA leader.
Just listen to what Chastain said, what she recognized with her women’s athlete intitution in our first interview together. I asked Chastain why there aren’t more women in celebrity golf tournaments.
She quickly shot back unprompted, “Cause you’re not in charge. Because you’re not inviting them.
“I don’t know. I have no idea what the answer to that question is. I don’t run a golf tournament. But I’d like to see one run by you. You’re a big backer of women’s sports.”
There was no sarcasm in this either. Chastain smiled as bright and tender as could be. It was a special moment shared at the front door of a women’s restroom. This was confirmed when the motherly gray-haired tournament volunteer guarding the women’s bathroom for the celebrities turned to me after Chastain slipped through the door and said, “You did good.”
Of course, Chastain did defend Zidane, the mad head butting Frenchman, in the same interview. No matter, I’ll take it.
For the complete interview with Brandi Chastain, stay tuned to BadGolfer.com soon. And the soon has nothing to do with the fact that soccer has about 10 minutes of shelf life left in this country (see I’m sensitive like that).
Just don’t expect me to promote the interview with McDonald’s Superman Returns worthy campaign. I’m the subtle one.

BY THE WAY, you Chris Baldwin fans might want to check out my column on LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Bivens, here:
As a leading member of the Wie Warriors, I would have to say that you would not be my first choice to replace Carolyn Bivens. I would much prefer Jennifer Mario. But if it ever comes down to a matter of you or Carolyn Bivens, I can say that you will have my full support.
As to supporting, Baldwin? Not a chance, but i'd consider a write in vote for Tim as an alternate.
Bivens really needs to go.

Ha ha wouldn't it be funny if it was an X rated email? And names were mentioned?!!
Comment from: Wie fan [Visitor]
Sorry folks. I don't know how that email got all tangled up with a previous email.I must have hit Paste accidentally.
Actually, your golf posts are so nutty anyway, that the delivery stuff seemed to be in character for you. The words flowed as usual. Keep up the crazy work
You are very beautiful man.
You are correct, and Paula Creamer is best golfer. She is beating Wie by alot at British Open, and Paula will win tournament.
Michelle behind many poor golfers and her ranking is falling way back. Paula is ranked much better.
Keep up the good work Chris, tell the truth about it.
Will it be George, will it be Alex. Are their other condenders?
Maybe Judge Smails isn't dedicated enough.
High fives. Woohooh, go horray.
Do you think women should be banned from playing golf?
What about Paula Creamer's legs?
Women shouldn't be banned from mens tours and the reason is simple. Paula Creamer is going to join the pga tour in a few years time. I posted a timetable before, of how it will all pan out. It works out with Paula dominating the lpga tour by the time she is 22, and she will win the lpga grand slam when she is 22 or 23, and then she will join the pga tour.
It will probably take until she is about 28, before she wins her first mens major, but she has a very good chance of winning the mens grand slam at some stage.
I thought it was George who posted that timetable. Anyway, methinks you aspire to be a humorist.
MICHELLE...WAKE UP MICHELLE...YOUR TEE TIME IS IN ONE HOUR.
HUH...OH...I MUST HAVE BEEN DREAMING.
And you are a nut yourself. Someone has the courtesy to apologize for an error and you call him a nut? What kind of a jerk are you? Your only excuse will be if you are a 11 or 12 year old.
I JUST RECEIVED AN E-MAIL FROM MW AND SHE IS CONSIDERING YOU TO BE HER NEXT CADDIE!!! I HOPE YOU GIVE IT SERIOUS THOUGHT BEFORE YOU ACCEPT.
