:wavey:

I was watching sportscenter last night and on the bottom line it had a tease for 'Rome is Burning' and the special guests were 'Jason Giambi and Serena Williams'.

Now, you know I stared at the bottom line for at least two minutes in disbelief because:

1. Jim's an asshole who likes the sound of his own voice,
2. Jim's an asshole who said that he missed the days when Richard decided their matches,
and
3. Jim's an asshole.

Did I mention Jim's an asshole?

I'll be skeptically watching at 7:00 EST on ESPN and I'll probably end up :rolleyes: the entire time. And I'm sure, it'll be remote from her house or her gig in Toronto if she can walk.

Just wanted to let you guys know. peace out.

thanks, cariosity. so i take it that you're not that fond of jim? ;) in non-tennis a week or so ago, i c/p a blurb he did about ben affleck and jennifer lopez eating at red lobster. i realize he can be a real jerk but there are moments when i'm in the right frame of mind to appreciate his attempts at humor. :eek:

I find it hard to listen to him. He's like acrylic nails on a chalkboard; you're not irritated until you hear the sound (of his voice). I watch him on mute and he tries to out-talk his guests when he doesn't respect them. We'll see if he tries to out-talk Serena. :tape:

I'm not a Rome fan. I've never heard a satisfatory explanation for his repeated insults of Chris Evert. It would be nice if she was in studio with him. She'd no doubt wear something that would completely discombobulate him.

I hate Rome's voice because it completely reminds me of the obnoxious "surfer dudes" that I went to school with. It's such a condescending tone, and his smirk makes me sick. Come to think of it, Rome very well could be one of those surfer dudes who I went to school with.

I guess the lady in red (Rari) doesn't like Rome's acerbic sense of humour. ;)

Volcana, Rome has apologized for calling former NFL quarterback Jim Everret Chris Evert to his face many years ago which spurred Everret to rough up Rome on the set! :eek: Rome has said he wished he never said that. But he was a young loudmouth then looking to stir the pot.

I'm looking forward to seeing Serena tonight on "Rome Is Burning".

cat: you called me Rari? rut-roh! :tape: :haha: :haha:

naw, it's just that I don't like people who are chronically mean with their humor. it's not funny to me.

babe: this should be a good segment... I think Serena will give him the what for but be real cute and most importantly SEXY about it.

Serena - 'I might be in a cast but I'm still gonna look good.'

:tape: :tape: :tape:

Oops! Sorry Cari. I must have been thinking red and capitalized the R. :eek:

Cari, as for Rome, how do you know what he's like if you don't watch him? Gotcha! ;) And he does rub me the wrong way sometimes. But he knows his sports and doesn't pull any punches. But it took me a couple of years to get used to him.
