Mary Carillo .. just ripped into Jen.

Her two picks of the tourney today and tonight were.

Steffie and Jaden

and

Jen's ignorance of Title 9. They even replayed her interview. Also MC said that even her 10 and 15 year old know what that means.

YOU GO MARY! So few of the ladies give a shit about women's issues. Sad!

At least she is not supporting right-wing ultranationalist war criminals. Even Mary did not touch that one.

I thought it was a bit of a cheap shot from Mary but she is right and it was pretty funny.

Btw, I just did a SEARCH on CNN.com about Bush and Article 9 and could not find any mention of it at all!!!!! I don't think the story is getting enough press for Jenn to even know about it but the WTA should be briefing its players on this stuff and ought to be looking out for women's rights. you would think the WTA would do this so their players would not fall victim to these questions and also to fight Bush and his cronies.

Why is that when Bush wrecks the environment, seeks to push back gender, racial and sexual minority rights, betrays our allies, sells out to big business and uses terrorism as a pretext to take away our privacy and constitutional rights there is almost NO CRITICISM?

And yet Clinton's sex life was newsworthy for two damn years.!

Maybe she just didn't understand what the interviewer meant.... I guess. I'll give her a little bit of credit since we don't know what she heard/thought/meant/intrepreted the question.

I almost feel bad for Jenny. We all know she's not very smart or apperently curious about whats going on in the world. But then I recall a Sportcenter piece embarassing major league Baseball players for their lack of knowledge of history. My local papers ripped into Frank Thomas for lacking knowledge of Jackie Robinson.

These sports folks get paid big bucks and one price of it is that the media is going to put a spotlight on some of the dopey stuff you say. But something don't quite feel right about it. Jenny's just too easy a target. Its like people making fun of the kids in the "little yellow bus". It seems a bit unfair.

Mary was right. She did not hold back on Lleyton last year when he was wrong. Now it's time to move on and just leave James and Lleyton the hell alone. Mary used to rip on Martina Hingis but now she is quite nice to her. This is what I like about Mary. She is honest but she also forgives and realizes when the press is being unfair to Martina, Lleyton or the Williams or whoever. Mary is smart and she knows what's going on. btw, Mary likes Jenn. She just did not care for that answer.


Once again, I agree with Dawn Marie.

Kudos to Mary. Title 9 is a huge reason that a lot of these women are able to make such a rich and fulfilling living playing the sport that they love. Capriati is 26 years old for the love of Pete, playing a sport and has never heard of Title 9? That's just sickening. I'm sure that Jen isn't the only guilty party, but as one of the senior American players on the tour, you would think that she would have some sense of history. Contrary to what the selfish, self-serving, vapid athletes realize there was a world before them and there were a lot of woman who had to fight and (who NEVER made the money these women make) scrounge so that players like Jennifer and Venus and Monica can make so much money and have so much fame.

Mary Carillo is a brilliant, smart, and fantastic commentator, who cuts a lot of players a lot of slack (contrary to public opinion) and it would take a LOT to get her so worked up that she would feel the need to bring it up on air. Title 9 IS that important for women athletes and it just shows complete and utter disrespect to all the people that fought so hard to allow Jennifer and all the women of her generation and beyond the opportunity to pursue their dreams as athletes.

MARY CARILLO IS MY HERO-

By the by, I am not doing my 'Pam Shriver man crazy' bit right now. I am sincere.

That's what she said!!!

Mary was ruthless...and rightfully so. Jennifer came off like a big DUH! How embarrassing for women's sports.

Oops! But the point is that it's not getting enough coverage. Actually Dawn and I agree on quite a few things but we don't always admit it. LOL!
