ESPN is so stupid...

i dont know if a thread was started about this already, but as soon as i saw it, i knew people here would laugh at how dumb those commentators can be some time.

after saying that it was venus who was leading eleni in the match, when serena when brought up to the terrace with mary joe, the other guy who was there said that serena might be worried because kim beat her in the last meeting. and then serena made him feel stupid because she was like "no, actually i got her."

this is right up there with them making fun of marlene's website at the beginning of the week, confusing venus and serena countless times, referring to poor statistics, and showing ridiculous matches that do not need to be viewed.

ok, im done with my outburst

pam said that she couldn't believe a no name like marlene had a website - so she spent approxamitely 30 seconds there. she quoted stuff from it, but every time she brought it up, all of the people in the booth would start laughing b/c you'd expect it from jennifer and not from a "nobody" like marlene - they felt stupid when marlene won

there was other stuff too, but it was a week ago and i don't remember exactly what they said.

Yeah Chris Fowler has never done tennis. He is mainly college football! I like what he said to Serena... "we just had Meghann up here and she was trash talking about you".... it was funny of course he said he was joking!
I'm sure Chris had his little ITF cheat sheet in front of him and it didn't mention the exo. Although Hopman Cup to me doesn't seem like an exo.

LOL@ Serena when she "checked" Chris Fowler. She was deadly serious, when she told him she beat Kim in Perth. Looking foolish, he tried to changed the subject to the NFL

Is it possible Chris was only given info on WTA Tour matches, and made an honest mistake not knowing about the (technically an exhibition) Hopman Cup?

I thought that was hilarious ...Serena was like "No..... I got her last time we played ....HaHa" then she pointed at him, he did appear rather flustered but it didn't bother me!

ESPN covers the OZ Open with such stuuuuuuuuuuuuuupid commentating. All commetators are SUCK ASS. I think ESPN needs to do a overhaul and fire them all. Hire some people who talk about the tennis ball, instead of stttttttttttttttttttttttttuuuuuuuuuuuuuuupid crap.
