Big Break V: here we go again
Here?s a sampling of quotes from our two Barbies.
?Other women hate me because of my looks.? (Barbie I)
?I?m just genetically gifted, what can I say?? (Barbie II)
?My driver is the best part of my game. I?m very, very, very long and accurate.? (Barbie I)
?I don?t want to be arrogant or anything, but I can probably outdrive most women with my seven-wood.? (Barbie II)
To her credit, Barbie the First used her sticks to back up all that talk and ended up winning the thing. Barbie the Second, eh, not so much.
Last week, Miss October came within one putt of getting booted off the show. In last night?s episode, she shanked her drive right into the crap and lost to Jeanne Cho, while displaying apparent ignorance about match-play rules. ?She doesn?t look like a real golfer,? said Kristina, a fellow Breaker. ?I think she was trying to be the supermodel slash golfer.? Meow!
So who?s going to win? Becky Lucidi has an impressive resume?one that includes the 2002 US Women?s Amateur title. Less impressive is the fact that at the 2003 US Women?s Publinx, she lost in match-play 6 and 5 to a 13-year-old. Of course, that 13-year-old did happen to be eventual winner Michelle Wie.
My money?s on Kristina. The Swede?s got the whole package: Duke education, steady nerves, and plenty of competitive experience.

What a waste of TV time.
Here's to hoping the latest "aspiring actress" (read: next month's centerfold) doesn't get too far on the Big Break V. Barbie II's swing stands out among a good looking group of players as BY FAR the ugliest, and her results to date match the swing.
What ever it is, your entire post is ridiculous, pointless and illogical. You have no facts, you have nothing but your own prejudices to base any claims about myself, the other respondents on this blog, or the author.
Nikki and Danielle are not getting bashed for their looks, but for their preoccupation with their looks (and their overwhelming egos.) See, that's what the "Barbie" reference means.
There are at least three women on the current Big Break that are, in my opinion and the opinion of several male friends I have asked, more attractive than Nikki. They are not getting dumped on by anyone on this blog, because they are not annoying, nor are they preening for TV at every turn. Nor are they making ridiculous comments like the ones the author of this blog points out - self aggrandizing statements that are not borne out by the results. And yes, I know Danielle won on the first Big Break, but even that didn't live up to her own sense of self!
As for Danielle being sweet, I guess you didn't watch that Big Break season all that closely. She was looked at as a pariah by all the players ON the show, and by most who watched it and commented here or on other golf blogs, specifically because she was a shrew.
So, rather than let you spew anti-Italian suppositions and baseless claims of prejudgement, this European-heritage-female (Polish) will say this: your opinion doesn't count, because your name is Ken, you sound like you are of German descent, and you don't like people who take showers.
Now, you smelly Hessian, go take your racist, fact-free opinion somewhere else. You are taking up space the logical elements on this blog would like to use for discourse.
I want to watch good golfers ...she wasnt that good.
