Does anyone have a transcript of any of these shows? I would like to read (and re-read, and re-read) anything good about tennis these people have to say. PTI is notorious for always getting on the anti-tennis bandwagon. Last year after the US Open (I think) Kornheiser basically stated "who cares about tennis, tennis is dead", while Wilbon sheepishly said that he heard that Roger Federer was pretty good". Wilbon also wrote an idiotic article this year on the Washington Post about the state of tennis, after Roddick had called him to chastise him about Wilbon's comments on PTI.
Heck, right after the 1995 US Open final between Sampras and Agassi, Wilbon wrote an article on the Washington Post about the sad state of tennis and how Sampras/Agassi was supposed to be THE rivalry and no one could get excited about it. So you see, dismissing tennis has been one of his pet projects for at least a decade.
Wilbon is pretty good about other sports, I have to say. Except when he pretends he knows something about figure skating...
Kornheiser? He. Gets. On. My. Last. Nerve.
