Someone gag Mary Carillo

Also, tell her even if she takes off her mic, we can still hear her!!!

Re: Someone gag Mary Carillo

I wonder if Mary knows we can hear her cackling in the background! I heard other commentators this AO too in the background, good thing none of them have come out and said something terribly offensive

Whichever one makes her sound as deep as a man.

She hasn't been as bad this year. She's actually come off likable to me.

I miss my US commentators esp Mary Joe...I'm stuck with starsports. They're good but no fun.

Re: Someone gag Mary Carillo

She says lots of stupid stuff, but I still like her better than some of the other commentators.

LOL at her going on and on about This Is Spinal Tap. Then her cackling about whatever with her mic off. Hilarious.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed this annoyance.

Re: Someone gag Mary Carillo

she is getting on my nerves with calling any player under 30 a kid.

Wozniacki is a kid, she is 17 for fuck sake Mary, she is a teenager, not a kid.

And she called Domachowska a kid, who is 22.

Somebody ban the word kid.

Re: Someone gag Mary Carillo

So close but no cigar.
I almost thought that Mary Carillo would go the entire fortnight without mentioning something about challenges.

She didn't say anything on unlimited challanges when she had the chance but she's going off when it comes to the looking up to the player's box to ask a coach for help on challanges.

I almost started a thread in which we could count the # of times she used the word "kid" to describe someone over the age of 20.

Re: Someone gag Mary Carillo

Mary's great. She says what's on her mind. She's refreshingly candid, whether you like what she has to say or not. And she's an equal opportunity offender in that regard. She has no favorites.

And when that idiot Enberg tried to cut away after Maria's win over Henin to ask about serenus, Mary put him in his well-earned place. She's the best thing ESPN has going for it.

To me she's the worse thing to happen to ESPN because when you try to be "one of the boys", all you get is a shovenist in a women's figure.

IMO, she rarely has negative comments about men's tennis but in women's tennis they just come in burst.

That's what makes it funny, though. She's no Navratilova, stats-wise.

I look at her as being a better alternative than Enberg or Drysdale for the play-by-play person--it's why she is usually paired with Shriver or Fernandez who played at a higher level and can offer the technical insights. I just like her tendancies to say what's on her mind and not worry about the PC-ness of it all.
