Yeah, Kiel. June didn't know you could be funny. And she's only been reading you for five years.

By the way, still feel good about going after the highest common denominator after reading Heywood I'm So Clever's comment? I'm not even a Nutty Professor and that one depressed me.

What are you guys teaching the kids today!

No no no--Kiel is NOT bashing Michelle Wie -its supposed to be tongue in cheek.

Its only a joke and he's pointing out how ridiculous and crazy Chris Baldwin's justifications are for bashing Michelle !

Kiel has actually been very supportive of Michelle!!

Kiel --isn't it time for you and the other bloggers to stop humoring Chris Baldwin and make him stop hanging around you guys? He's really ruining this website with his mediocrity.

I know Chris Baldwin says blog writing is his dream but there comes a time where you got to tell Anna Nicole Smith that she'll never win the Nobel Prize.

I really like your articles--can't you just write twice the amount of articles and kick that Baldwin fellow off this website?

Ugh...sorry. I read only the first paragraph and thought this article was a copycat act. My bad!
Chris, go away.

I got a good laugh out of this one... brilliant title. I think someone out there is feeling a bit embarrassed.

Belittling a 15 year old girl? This really has to be one of the most asinine articles I have ever read! I certainly hope other writers don't lower themselves to your myopic views. Michelle Wie’s will soon dispel all naysayer. It’s just a matter of time. Actually, she’s already winning head-to-heads with most golfers in the LPGA. It’s highly improbable that Michelle will lose to the likes of other LPGA golfers, notably Jeong Jang, on a consistent basis.

Second, your love affair for one particular golfer has me, understandably, worried. Jang seems to be a great golfer, but she cannot stir the golf world like Wie can. You sound like you’re in kindergarten. At least, you write like one. Go back to elementary school and learn to write more respectably (I hear Baldwin is good) !!!!!!

Sorry, that was a bad attempt to be funny (trying to spell 'Balwin Sucks!' vertically down). Oh well.

Dude! Another Chris Baldwin wannabe or copycat! They are either running out of great materials to write about or they are suffering from writer's block. These guys putting trash out there so people will think it's funny or stupid that they'll respond. I wonder if they are getting paid to write these trashy columns. It's time to stop the Wie bashing.

Jay--you got Kiel Christianson's article all wrong--see my post above...

Yup, the logic makes perfect sense to me. Vijay wins the Buick Open over 2nd place Tiger and old "Baldy" would write: "Vijay Singh better than Tiger Woods now, will always be better than Woods."

Yup, old "Baldy" should apply for a full professorship in the College of Logical Thinking. Might I suggest the CLT Dept at the University of Colorado. He can join professor Churchill because they have much in common, "Delusions of Grandeur".

I don't really care whether this in tongue in cheek or not. Michelle is just so incredibly hot, I don't care whether she wins or ties for third or whatever. My heart skips a beat every time I see her.

Chris Baldwin better than Kiel Christianson, will always be better than Kiel. Why? Read on.

Baldwin can use ultimately trendy nickname of Topher; Christianson can use Hull or Keel or some other nautical motif.

Actually, that's my only reason. I have no tongue nor cheek.

We all wanna see Baldwain write it, " Even David Duval is better than Michelle Wie now, will always be better than Wie". He got the big W, after all, right? ;-)

Actually Chris and Kiel are both wrong. Who cares about what happens in a tournament run by the froggies or the limeys? Only a good old All-American tournament counts, and for that matter, the only one that counts is the biggest and richest of them all, the US Open.

It is not Paula Creamer who is better than Michelle Wie now and forever. It is not Jeong Jang. It is Birdie Kim who is better than Michelle Wie now, and who will always be better than Michelle Wie. Indeed, Birdie Kim is so great she knew better than to perform well in some stupid froggy or limey tournament--which is something else that Michelle Wie needs to learn.

A lot of people are calling Michelle Wie a loser. This is true--but most people fail to truly understand what it means to be a loser. Sportsmanship is for losers. Being a loser has very little to do with losing--it is simply another term for being a good sport.

If anyone watched the US Open you may have seen the most extreme act of goodsportsmanship ever seen in this country. When Birdie Kim sank her miracle chip to win the Open, Michelle Wie's good friend and fellow American amateur Morgan Pressel was denied a victory in the biggest tournament in women's golf. Can you even begin to imagine how much it must have hurt Michelle to see her good friend Morgan denied that prize.

But did Michelle express anger or hurt or any other negative emotion. No she did not. Hiding her sadness for her good friend Morgan Pressel, she reached out in joy towards Birdie Kim, congratulating the Birdie Kim with a sincerity rarely seen in anyone--and certainly never in a winner.

Its very unfortunate to see middle aged men bashing 15 year olds on their golf game. What is this world turning into? Whats next, Bush being reelected again for presidency ?

OK. For all of you out there who are either unable or unwilling to read, this blog was intended as SUPPORT for Wie and an example of how comparisons between golfers--any golfers, especially Wie and Tiger--are silly. One thing Baldwin got right in his comment above is that it appears that many people--most shockingly those who feel compelled to comment publicly on blogs--are either too dense or too lazy to understand anything other than the bleedingly obvious. Sigh...

I would like to address an issue that is far larger than Michelle Wie ....although much less pleasant to think about. That is...this name changing stuff the Koreans are pulling. First we have Birdie..what's next Eagle Jong and Double Eagle Jang? Never Miss a Putt Kim???
Does Paula counter with AAA None Better Creamer? Where does it end? People will start using animal names..like Tiger.
