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.

Tim Hardaway’s Gay Bashing rant and George Takei’s Response

George Takei has been long known in the Asian American community as an activist for civil rights and more recently, for gay rights.

Hats off to George Takei for his brave PSA addressing Tim Hardaway’s recent homophobic rants.

George, you are my hero.
