Can you believe it's nearly 40 years since the infamous "Battle of the Sexes" was held in the Houston Astrodome? I've said it before, and I'll say it again- Billie Jean brought me into tennis way back then (I was 11 years old) when the whole family sat down in the living room to watch that dog and pony show.

First off BFTP is my favorite of this forum. I believe that 98% of what I posted is here on BFTP.

Moving on to what was the original topic.

I saw the match on TV, and was thrilled that Billie Jean won. She is not one of my personal favorites, but Ms. King is one person who I have the utmost respect and admiration for. She IMO - Put TENNIS on the map. No, (before anyone says so) I did not mean to say "Women's Tennis" I mean TENNIS! I'll probably get some replies back about that, but that is how I feel.
