Grow up, Michelle Wie!

wie_8a.jpgActually, I like Michelle Wie. I kind of feel sorry for her. She’s only 17 and the whole world watches her every move and criticizes everything she does now that she doesn’t look like a kid.

But then I realize, she’s really a very lucky girl. She’s got parents who support her, she’s got immense talent and potential, and she’s going to be a very, very rich girl regardless of how well her golf career goes. Is there anyone out there who doesn’t think she’s going to get a ton of money in endorsement deals? Have a side gig as an athlete model ala Gabrielle Reece or Lisa Leslie?

I hate to jump on the bandwagon with all the Michelle Wie haters (Tim McDonald as one example), but I’ve got to say I’m less than thrilled by her recent behavior.

Michelle, I don’t care if you’re 17 or not. You’ve been playing golf for a long time, please show some sportsmanship. If you say you are injured, ACT like you are injured. Don’t pull out of a tournament you are losing terribly in and then come back shortly to practice some more right in front of the people who you were previously losing to.

Some have said you’re the next Tiger Woods.

Tiger Woods has always been a class act.

Grow up and live up to that standard, please.

Otherwise I might have to join the haters permanently.

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank.
