Denver Broncos legend John Elway one of the few still admitting rooting for Michelle Wie
Everyone seems to be jumping off the Michelle Wie hype wagon these days joining the rare orginal thinkers who spoke up when the marketing machinery hummed along unquestioned. The latest is Associated Press golf writer Doug Ferguson (when you’re later then TravelGolf.com’s Tim McDonald to the party, you’re late).
It’s getting to the point where you cannot even find a dirty dozen who will admit they were ever Wie Warriors these days. The transformation’s sort of astounding - until you consider the kind of people who tend to latch onto worshipping supposed stars with no backing up results.
“I just hope that she can win some tournaments, get some confidence,” Elway said. “She’s a great player. But she’s young. I just hope she can get that first win under her belt.”
Elway knows a little something about being criticized for not winning. Until those two late career Super Bowl truimphs, he was regarded as the quarterback who couldn’t win the big one. Of course, he won a lot of big ones, they just weren’t Super Bowls. Just ask your neighborhood Cleveland Browns fan.
I’d be the first one to declare it absolutely ridiculous to compare Can’t Win Any Small Ones Wie to Elway, but Denver’s most popular citizen is willing to stick up for Wie.
It’s probably no surprise. Elway is a nice guy who doesn’t say anything bad about anyone not named Dan Reeves. Plus, he’s the first Football Hall of Famer to have his daughter give his induction speech.
John Elway is a progressive sort of guy. Like me.

I'm still a big fan of Michelle Wie.
I also think she will be the greatest female player of all time.
By the way, she is still a far better player than Paula Creamer who is by the way, 0 fo 36 in her last 36 lpga events.
Did you know that?
Creamer's winless lpga record surpasses that of Michelle Wie.
Isn't that interesting.
Natalie Gulbis is 0 for about 130 or so events.
Pressel earned nearly five hundred thousand bucks during her Rookie season on tour. A great first season for Morgan as a Pro.
You have to finish high in the order consistently to earn over a million without a win and I for one think they both had very good seasons on tour and most importantly they kept their exempt cards for the 2007 tour.
Morgan and Paula will win a bunch of golf tournaments in the future, so be patient.
won 4 tournaments her rookie year and won
over a million dollars as a sophmore pro. Wie
has not won anything as a pro. Besides
wishful thinking, why do you think Wie is
ahead of Creamer?????
Are you having another out of body experience? Did you not take your medication this morning?
The fact is that Paula Creamer won those 4 events and then backed it up by winning nothing, well apart from less money that is.
Creamer has failed to perform in the majors again and again.
