anyone have some electrical tape and a dirty sock?

who the hell was that guy commentating with mary and pam Apparently there has to be a brain dead male during every women's match to state the obvious... having two experienced, female veterans isn't enough.... gotta add the third, manly wheel

he would just state the obvious and then there'd be dead air.. i could just hear mary thinking "thanks for adding that brilliant bit of commentating"

there isn't always a woman during the men's matches.. in fact there rarely is except when mary is there..... but i have yet to watch a single women's match without at least one male commentator, and sometimes they don't even know what the hell they're talking about

It's not often that you hear the word "constipated" during tennis commentary

However, it is often that we think the announcers are constipated.

After Mary's comment, I thought that it was particularly pathetic when the guy tried to come back with his own little "constipated" joke. Obviously, he got no replies from Mary or Pam, only that same dead air that usually follows one of his statements. And boy wasn't he whistling his ass off tonight? I'm really fed up with him. I'd rather see Mary, Pam and Mary Jo commentating during the women's matches.

i think they normally have one person to just call the games score with anice voice just to do the play by play. mary and pam talk more tennis in detail.

Chris Fowler. He does general ESPN stuff. It's like when TNT has that b-ball announcer doing Wimbledon interstitials. Useless.

*hands poe the requested tape and a dirty sock (stolen from Roddick after that five set match)*

We're counting on you Poe; don't let us down!

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

now how can we get this entire thread forwarded to ESPN??

Hail-Venus you're right. his addendum to Mary's constipated comment was so horrible. i'm glad they just ignored his ass. if it's bad for us, imagine how Mary and Pam must feel having to interact with this idiot day in day out.

For my $, "Martina I" is the ONLY really good commentator @ WTA events. Hopefully she'll go full time now that the on-court "encore" seems 2B wrapping up. Mary C. and Mary Joe have some potential; Pam and ESPECIALLY Chrissie flat out suck, IMO.
