Was Vitas the beer can? Connors the straw? ... Or vice-versa! :eek:
I thought it was coke bottle vs straw! :hearts: :bounce: And to my absolute shame, I'd LOVE to know! I looked at both their hands -- looked like Vitas has smaller hands and you know what they say... But that's not very scientific...that's just "girl talk." :devil:

By the way Daze, what did Butch Buchholtz do in Phoenix (when Chris was playing WTT) to "get on her nerves." I saw a reference to that in an article and wondered what the deal is. They suggested that's the real reason Chris was traded to LA.

No idea. :shrug: Around the same time, Jerry Diamond had said it was good for womens tennis that chris lost a match & she held a grudge about that for a while. In 1988, she said to a crowd at an event he had been the tournie director for, "Jerry Diamond is really not a male chauvinst like you all may think he is..." :lol:
But I thought Chris went to LA to be with her best bud, Kirsten Kemmer-Shaw...

then it HAD to be serious!! Hanging out with kirsten is part of why she wanted to play, as I understand it. (Other than the top players also being on board for it...)

BUT what I want to know is: Was it a little coke can or a big beer can?!!!! :shock:

You looked at their hands???? Didn't think of that - I just looked at their shorts;) . My vote is Vitas as coke bottle/beer can and Jimmy as straw.

(When I first saw this thread, I thought Daze had had a very personal chat with Chris or a very up close and personal encounter with Jimmy:lol: )

You can't tell when they wear tennis clothes, you have to catch them in regular clothes. The athletic supporter holds stuff down. I'm ashamed to admit that I even thought of this -- but I did! :devil: I blame it on that Michael M. book! The least he could have done was give us a hint....:bounce:

p.s. Daze is a naughty boy...but I guess one can't be a true ChrissieE fan without being a little naughty...hehehehe...:lick:

p.s.s. When I first read about Chris making comparisons, I went to check out John Lloyd. Especially since I knew of photos of him in a swimming suite. Unfortunately, I think I know why Chris now describes their love as being one more based on companionship and friendship than passion. ;)!

Okay, it says 'mystery revealed'. I am waiting....
I guess I'm claiming that this BirdsEye moment is in fact a Dream in which that tennis ball can is communicated to us by Chris as being Jimmy's dick. Questions? :devil: :p

I don't understand this thread. Is Evert supposed to have made a comment on the relative size of some of her many lovers genitalia? Such a class act....

Yeah, apparently Chrissie was at a party when she was asked to compare Jimbo Connors and Vitas Gerulaitis. She picked up a soda bottle with a straw in it, and held the straw in one hand and the bottle in the other. "This is Jimmy..." she said "...and this is Vitas."

Unfortunately for all of the gossip mongers out there, it was never revealed who had the straw and who had the bottle (so to speak!)

And Chris was a very classy lady!:( She just knew how to have fun as well! I like the fact that she had a salty side that belied her 'prissy' image.;)

Very classy. I am sure had Jimmy Connors been at a party and asked to compare say Marjorie Wallace and Chris Evert and he had held up a champagne flute and a beer mug and said "this one's Chrissie and this one's Marjorie" he would be branded a cad and a low life for defaming such "classy" ladies. Sometimes you just have to set aside your admiration and see people with warts and all...

I wasn't saying that Chrissie's behaviour at the party was classy. Just because she might have behaved in a less than 'classy' manner at times, that doesn't mean that she has no class. It just means that she is human!

Also, maybe that's true that if Jimbo made a similar comment, he would be branded as a "low life", but I can't help but notice that some women on the tour are branded as 'sluts' for enjoying a party lifestyle or a selection of lovers, whereas the men (such as Jimbo) are seen as 'studs'.

So I guess they're even!

chris was about 20 at the time, and it was inline with the humor of the mid-1970s... she was not yet a woman. so we have fun with this recurring story because we are enjoying the fact that she wasnt so constructed for classiness at that stage. :) just a silly girl hangin' out with the boys.

NASTASE seen above: DEFINITELY a BEER CAN!! :rolls:
