JOHN MCENROE UPDATE….Unfortunately, I missed John McEnroe filling in for David Letterman last night, but Ken Layne has the scoop.
As an aside for anyone who wonders why us tennis fans love McEnroe even though he is, was, and probably always will be an asshole ? well, it’s all about the tennis. Even that’s hard to explain, but he really did do stuff with a racket that no one has ever done before or since. He might not have been the best tennis player ever, but in some cosmic sense he was the most magical. I wish I could do a better job of explaining it.
