    Thank goodness we don't have to see this nonsense in tennis. If we did . . .

    Nos. 1-1,000 d. Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-0.

    Then go play in LPGA events and WIN something there!!! Don't waste our time or take a spot from a male golfer who needs to play in the 84 Lumber just to try and qualify for the PGA Tour next year.

    The point we've been making is that maybe she should try to win something, anything on the ladies tour before competing against men. Top five doesn't cut it when you've got that much hype.

    Last place against men, fifth in LPGA, a couple almosts-in-majors, who cares?

    She don't suck.

    Its a victory for her if she isn't carried off on a stretcher.

    Except Wie gets attention and sells tickets on Thursday and Friday for what would otherwise be a tournament which wouldn't get much attention outside the area where she is playing.

    Using the "she's taking an opportunity away from another golfer" logic, no local guys should get a sponsor's invitation in any PGA tournament.

    Wie shouldn't either. She should be on the LPGA Tour winning events. Period.

    However, because of her age, she can only play in a limited number of LPGA events each year. So if she weren't playing the guys, she'd be wasting her time at home studying or something.

    So her last three results against the men have been:

    *carried off on a stretcher
    *dead fucking last
    *dead fucking last

    Who's managing her career, Latrell Sprewell?

    I wonder if she's struggling because her body is, uh, changing?
  12. Gold...you're an idiot. Try telling that to the local guy who has made a career of the Tour...struggling, that plays in the Monday Pro-Am every year. You're telling me he shouldn't get an exemption. Dig a little deeper big man.
