The Michelle Wie circus has, like, totally reached a new low
Can there be any doubt Michelle Wie pulled out of the Ginn Tribute to spare herself any more humiliation than she’s already experienced?
Wie, playing like a weekend hacker, pulled out after 16 holes, citing her wrist injury. This was after a huddle with her manager, Greg Nard.
Nard: “Michelle, do you realize you’re in danger of falling to the LPGA’s 88 rule?”
Wie: “Oh my god, like, what is that?”
Nard: “If you can’t break 88, you won’t be allowed to play here or any other LPGA tournament the rest of the year.”
Wie: “Wow, that is, like, totally un-cool.”
Nard: “No kidding, Sherlock.”
Wie: “Will Nike stop giving me free stuff?”
Nard: “If you prove you can’t even play on the LPGA, much less with the men, what do you think?”
Wie, to Ginn official: “We’re not going to play any more.”

"With Michelle it has always been about ME. I am beginning to think that she is dumb as a rock! It will be interesting to see how she reacts when the exemptions stop along with the endorsements. She has really turned out to be the "spoiled brat" and that is too bad. I doubt if she will even make the cut during the LPGA Championship...if she plays."
She may not be friendly, but she's not spoiled or selfish. When she turned Pro, she donated $500,000 to Hurricane Katrina victims. And $50,000 to the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association on May 25,2006http://starbulletin.com/2006/12/16/sports/story04.html . She also purchased (worth $100,000) 30 computers and help with the upgrading of the computer room for Kamaile Elementary School. She also helps out the homeless population. http://starbulletin.com/2006/11/15/sports/story03.html . On Dec. 16, 2006 she donated $25,000 to a paralyzed teen athlete http://starbulletin.com/2006/12/16/sports/story04.html . Now, what person, especially a 16/17 year old would donate all that if he/she were "dumb as a rock." or "always about ME" huh? And she graduated from Punahou school with good grades. Punahou is a very prestigous school (Notable alumni: Barack Obama, Steve Case (AOL), Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), Carrie Ann Inaba (Dancing with the Stars), Leilani Jones (Brodway star and Tony winner, Brook Mahealani Lee (Miss. Universe 1997), Jennifer Nicholson (daughter of Jack Nicolson), Pierre Omidyar (founder and chairman of eBay, Kelly Preston, Mark Tuinei (Dallas Cowboys, & more). No one dumb graduates from Punahou. And no one dumb gets accepted from Stanford.
Sure, her personality could be better, but you don't know what's really going on. As far as Tim's opinion on how the huddle w/ her manager went, I disagree. I never heard her talk like that, sounds more valley girlish. I respect you're opinion Tim, but it's a bit overboard.
Since you seem to have a surfeit of information about Bubbles, maybe you can give a little insight to this question: What obnoxious actions did she take to so alienate her playing partners in her last two pro-ams?
You know my response to Joe Cool is right that's why you had ask that question.
Next time, you respond to something I said to somebody else, I'm not responding back to you.
