Yesterday, ESPN published a Facebook post on Serena Williams thoroughly dominating Maria Sharapova in the Olympics women’s singles finals. They asked if we were happy for her. Obviously the Williams sisters are a lightning rod that BSPN uses on occasion. I will say I watched that match and Serena deserved a post.
Serena Williams is one of the few professional athletes who really gets the Olympics. She was ready, came out with her “A” game and dominated. Even more so, she complimented other athletes who were engaged in their own events.
Unfortunately,some of our fellow citizens revealed something about themselves in the comments. One person wrote about Serena throwing temper tantrums while the “greats” like … Jimmy Connors … Behaved with class.
Are you serious? Are you trying to make up points? Did you ever see Jimmy Connors play? At least the guy didn’t roll off with John McEnroe as a fine example.
Now we don’t go to racism very often in this blog, because that’s an area more likely used by Euro soccer fan. However, I’m thinking either the person is a complete idiot, a liar or a racist. Jimmy Connors outbursts were legendary. The one thing I find interesting about Connors is, the comments regarding his behavior are gushing with crap like “what a competitor.”
Let’s lean to the complete idiot theory. Then again, most racists are complete idiots.
