A Worldwide Phenomenon

Fifteen year old golfing phenom Michelle Wie turned pro today. Her initial reward? A $20 million, four year, Nike contract. She also has signed a deal with Sony for an amount I haven't been able to determine but it should be in the same ballpark as the Nike deal. (And we haven't begun to count the money she will win from...er...golfing). Since the Asian markets appear to be ripe for capitalistic exploration, she may become the biggest worldwide star we've ever seen. (Or at least that is what ABC News said tonight).
