Chris,

I re-read that blog of yours from JUly 2005. Some of the comments were hilarious.

I wonder if any of the posters on that thread and others like it ever go back and read their nonsensical rants.

speaking of predictions that imploded, here's one from Sept. 2005 by James Coulthard:

[...]

PREDICTION: If the Americans play in 2007 without Michelle Wie, they will lose. If Michelle Wie is on the team, they will win. Michelle Wie would negate the Europeans home course advantage. Most of the fans wouldn't be there to root for the Europeans; they would be there to see Michelle Wie.
*****

If Michelle Wie fails to win an LPGA tournament before much more time passes -- specifically if she does not win by around July 31, 2008 -- it won't matter anyway.

At that point, Paula Creamer will remain the youngest LPGA winner ever (of a true, multi-round event) and Morgan Pressel will remain the youngest winner of an LPGA major.

Ironic, considering Paula and Morgan are probably the two rivals of Michelle that drive the Wie Warriors the most batty.

Better win soon, Michelle.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock...

"I kind of hit a couple of shots off-line, found a couple of bad breaks, the putts didn't fall today," Wie said. "But I had a lot of positive shots I can bank off of for the next tournament. Obviously, there's a lot of room for improvement. I felt like I did a pretty good job."

Good grief...it never changes!

The diehard Wie Warriors simply cannot accept the fact that they have been duped. The Wie machine baited the hook and these clowns took that bait and are hooked.

The Wiebots remind me of people who have been victimized by a scam, but refuse to believe they could be that gullible.

Even professional people who should know better are frequently taken in by pyramid schemes, chain letters, and things like Amway and the televised work at home ads.

In the case of Bubbles, her handlers carefully orchestrated a publicity campaign that a great many folks bought into. The sensible ones are reluctantly leaving the Wie hive,
but others are too emotionally invested to jump ship. The may never give up on Bubbles. They will be similar to those Japanese soldiers who were still hiding out in the Philipine jungles in 1950 waiting for orders from the emperor.

Paula's caddy for the weekend was Colin Cann - her regular caddy. You just needed something to write about.

I'm not doubting that John. But you watch that replay and tell me it didn't come across a little weird ...

Could be a TV thing. Maybe it looked fine in person, but hey ...
