Almost doesn't count
Good point. I was responding to the post that mentioned that kids are better younger than they were in the past. I don't have any statistics to back this up, so I could be completely wrong, but anecdotally it seems like you hear of more young men and women retiring at earlier ages when they start competing professionally in their teens.
I eat two meals a day, breakfast (breakfast is my favorite meal) and dinner, but with snacks in between. I still have a high enough metabolism that I'm less concerned than most about keeping a healthy diet. Not a great attitude about it, but I'll deal with the repercussions when it comes I guess. I do try to keep up with my vitamin and protein intake. I do eat too many carbs though.
Are you talking about the same Wie? She has won 4 times in LPGA including a major. She's no Chyenne or Kournikova. Neither won anything to speak of compared to Wie. If you meant Wie didn't meet the high expectation, you may be correct. But she is hardly a bust.
And I don't know much about what you stated above on her family & Wie. Unless you are a personal friend, relative, or someone who can definitively in the know, I doubt if what you stated is 100% accurate.
