There are 2 kinds of people that like Mary Carillo

A lot of tennis fans despise Mary Carillo, finding her annoying, unprofessional, and lame. However, Carillo undeniably has her fans. What kind of person is a fan of Mary Carillo?

Her fans can be placed into 2 broad categories.

Carillo Fans Type A: Fans who follow tennis closely, but are not very intelligent and therefore are taken in by Carillo's kitschy act.

Carillo Fans Type B: People who may be intelligent, but who follow tennis only casually and know little about the sport, and therefore do not realize how little Carillo knows.

Carillo Fans Type C: Out and out racists who use her as a defense to justify their dislike of two black women dominating a lily white sport

Re: There are 2 kinds of people that like Mary Carillo

type D: Luv her 'cause she get the most mileage from a limited skillset.

in today's media, credibility runs a distant second to controversy. Carillo asserts that the sisters fix matches, hurt tennis by being present, hurt tennis by being absent, etc.

anyone trying to be objective regarding her commentary should recognize they're damned if they do and damned if they don't.

one thing is certain about potential and the Williams sisters. , they absolutely lack the potential to please everybody .

Re: There are 2 kinds of people that like Mary Carillo

I like her because I think she is a woman doing her job, entitled to her opinion. Even if I don't like it, I think her voice sounds better than mine over a tennis match. Of course I like other commentators better, but I like her. I think people need to relax with this racist tactic. No one calls Richard Williams racist when he makes white comments. But yet, Carillo never makes black comments and she is somehow racist. I don't get it! Let the woman do her job and let Venus and Serena prove her wrong. Australia 2007, Wimbledon 2007 anyone?

but she's not objective, so does her opinion really mean anything?

Type F: those of us who understand that she is commentating for a national audience who know next-to-nothing about tennis and is paid to be entertaining and mildly controversial.

Do you just make up shit as you go along?

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
