TV commentators. From Growltiger. Thanks.

Jenny got us all going with her great “animal” question.
I got so frustrated listening to Dick Enberg running his mouth during the final that I was screaming “SHUT UP” at the television.
So let’s have at it at the commentators. And don’t be nice except when it’s warranted.
Patrick McEnroe – Needs to put on a little bra, short tennis skirt and wave pom poms when Federer, Nadal, Murray, Isner or Querry are playing. He is not objective.
Brad Gilbert – smart but with a mean streak.
John McEnroe – A good commentator who doesn’t deserve to be paired with Mary and Enberg.
Mary – Used to be the best but recently talks constantly.
Enberg – Will not shut up. He ran his mouth to the point I wanted to mute the TV but was interested in what McEnroe was saying so couldn’t. He and Mary even talked about the concession stand during one long point.
Conners – The best
Martina – Up there with Conners.
Tracy – Grating voice. Knows tennis but says stupid stuff.
Leif Sheiras – Is that how you spell it? What’s he doing there? Was he a tennis player? I never heard of him.
Courier – Super
Arias – Good, too.
Justin – Irksome but knows what he’s talking about.
Now it’s ya’ll’s turn.
