I Heart Michelle Wie

July 21, 2005

And, I am a million times more interested in golf now that Michelle Wie, all 15 years of her, is in the game. That is to say, I didn't care one bit before, and now I will actually read a golf story in the sports section, but admittedly, only if it's about her. I mean, how can you not root for her? I was thinking, she's probably doing wonders for the sport. Then I came across this story in the NY Times: A Teenage Golfer May Also Be a Marketer's Dream. Here's a more lengthy story that ran on CBS back in August. We would love to interview her. Somehow I think she's probably too busy for that.
