Was Not To Be For Wie

For a while today, it looked like Michelle Wie would earn her first major victory on the LPGA Tour. But Karrie Webb and Lorena Ochoa both eagled the 18th to head into a playoff at -9, while Wie's birdie putt just singed the cupp, leaving her at -8, tied for 3rd with Ben Roethlisberger's ex-girlfriend, Natalie Gulbis. Webb eventually won, beating Ochoa on the first playoff hole.

I'm not quite sure how it happened, but an LPGA tournament was the most exciting sporting event I watched this weekend. Thanks a lot for that, LSU. Poor Verne Lundquist is calling the event for CBS. Last week, he was hanging with Bill Raftery at the NCAA tournament. This week, he's with Judy Rankin at an LPGA event. The Lord must be angry with him.

The winner of this particular tournament always jumps into the lake on 18 when they win, and I was kinda hoping that someone hot and wearing a white shirt would win.
