    ... hits four fairways and four greens.

    Please, for the love of God, someone get her parents to stop the madness.

    She probably shouldn't have come back so quickly from the wrist injury. Even after she was fully recovered, I don't see how you can expect even the best golfer to be on top of their game that quickly.

    This was starting to happen before the wrist injury. She hasn't broken par in any tournament, men's or women's, since last July. I think it's now 21 rounds in a row. And 82 isn't exactly flirting with breaking par.

    Sal Johnson from golfobserver.com had one of the best lines about her. Called the most expensive exhibition golfer of all time.

    What madness?

    She pulled out of the men's event she was going to play.

    She's currently playing in a women's event (which you've been on her to play).

    She's injured physically and a bit of a mess mentally.

    And take away your punch lines? Yeah, you really want that. ::)

    Leave the parents out of this one. What madness did they cause this week?

    Vince Spadea once lost 21 consecutive tennis matches . . . and recovered enough to climb into the top 20.

    A 17 year old who's "injured physically and a bit of a mess mentally" should not be playing in the U.S. Women's Open. Period.
    Paging any grown-ups in the Michelle Wie Camp ... please pick up the white courtesy phone.

    Vince Spadea was never viewed as the next superstar of men's tennis.

    Easy to say in hindsight.

    Should a 16-year-old with a severely sprained ankle attempt a vault that will determine the fate of the U.S. women's Olympic gymnastics team?

    Kerri Strug (and a few others) would say "yes."

    Did someone really try to compare a virtual no-name like Vince Spadea to Michelle Wie, who we've been told is the next great thing? That's laughable.

    And Kerri Strug had a much better year than Michelle Wie is having.

    Kerri Strug was in a one-shot, once in a lifetime situation... and I still think it bordered on abuse to make her vault!

    That's fair.
