ESPN gave Carillo the boot – good riddance! I had hopes she had been shipped out to do service
somewhere, anywhere else. (How about this hilarious photo of Mary? LOL)
Now the Tennis Channel signed her up. The channel is covering the early rounds of the US Open. I’ll see how long I can tolerate her commentating. I am not trying to be hard on Mary Carillo but the woman does have issues!
Remember the rant she went on and stayed on regarding my girl Serena’s conflict with the line judge? (Okay so I am putting that mildly.) True it is that Serena had a moment, one of those I call an “out-of-body experience,” during the finals of the 2009 US Open.
Don’t agree with the manner with which Serena reacted; at the same time, I do understand it. I am still asking who the hell calls a foot fault when players are at championship point. I have never heard of such an occurrence but maybe someone can enlighten me. Please!!! Is it Serena’s fault that the USTA chose a Blind person as a line judge? 😉
As we all know Serena apologized and paid the hefty (around $90,000) fine imposed by the USTA . Carillo practically called for Serena to be “Banned” from the game of tennis. Pitiful display of shall we say envy? That little green monster is quite busy all the time. Right Mary?
At least with TC I don’t have to suffer through loud mouth biased Pam Shriver and her partners in annoyance Chris Fowler and Patrick McEnroe. Thank you Lawd for small favors. And thank goodness for Live Streaming – which gives me relief from commentators from hell regardless of the tv channel.
