Angry Williams Sisters Fans: Please Send Email To This Address Today!

Send email to Mike and Mike in the Morning


This show on EPSN Radio, nominated Venus and Serena's dad, Richard, for the weekly Just Shut Up Award. One of the hosts, who was subsituting for one of the Mikes, said that Richard should get the award because of the comments he made about Venus and Serena not being appreciated when they were dominating tennis because of their color, but he also alleged that Richard was upatriotic because he doesn't salute the Americn flag.

BTW, Richard won the award.

who the heck are they to say someone is not patriotic? Lots of people don't salute the flag for religious reasons, etc..

on ESPN's Sunday Conversation, Venus HERSELF said that people don't wanna hear anything regarding race so this "just shut up" award is not that surprising.

besides, who cares what THEY think. i'd rather make Venus wallpaper than send an email that won't be read.

Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

I know; I saw the entire conversation on EPSN News.

If you make it nasty enough, they'll read it.

yeah, the u.s. fosters FAUX patriotism by making us recite the "pledge of allegiance". I stopped pledging my allegiance in middle school and students were like "why don't you pledge?" some even made fun of me for not pledging. I just felt sorry for those poor robots.

you see, over here you can be proud of the Union Jack/St Georges cross etc, but there's such a thing as taking it too far if everytime we saw it, we saluted it, we'd be considered silly

Liz, I just happen to see that this morning and could not believe my ears. Where the hell were those guys when everyone were saying that the sisters were not good for tennis...these people only hear what they want to hear.

It was a sub host named Eric (I can't spell his last name, but he has a show on ESPN radio show that comes on after Dan Patrick's, but not in the NYC area where I live.
