Travis really needs to grow up. He's not playing juniors anymore, he has to accept he is a huge loser.

Jim Thomas was born on 24 September, 1974. He will be 31 this September.

Travis Parrott was born on 16 August, 1980. He will be 25 this August.

This is irrelevant to what happened. Travis was VERY rude, and refused to shake Jim's hand at the end. Whether or not this was related to Jim hitting Travis is unimportant. Jim hit Travis by mistake, and apologised twice.

Drew, you weren't there, you don't know what happened, you only have one person's side of the story, so please give it a rest. Travis is one of the most laid back people on tour and for him to refuse to shake Jim's hand, he must have been really pissed about something. I understand your belief that your hero Jim can do no wrong, I used to feel the same way about JanMike, but some of your comments in the scoring thread yesterday were as classless as you believe Travis' behavior to be.

Default Re: Do you know Travis Parrott?!

Well, I was the one who told Drew about it. And I don't know any of these players from Adam, nor did I particularly care who won, nor did I even know anything about any of them before I saw the match yesterday. So I feel pretty comfortable saying I didn't have a bias when I watched it. Jim tried repeatedly to shake Travis's hand - both before and after they shook hands with the ump - and each time Travis just sort of turned his back.

And I really did find Travis's behavior to be extremely rude and inexplicable. perhaps there was a reason or some history between them. Yes it is true that Jim accidentally pelted Travis with a ball but he immediately apologized for it, twice I think. I've seen a lot of cold handshakes and stuff, but this was just an outright refusal to acknowledge his presence.

So I dunno, as far as first impressions go, he made a pretty bad one on me. Which actually makes me sad, b/c I like to support as many US players as possible, but sportsmanship is a big thing for me.

Fee, you weren't either, you don't either, you do too, so please give it a rest too. Jim did nothing wrong, so for Travis to refuse to shake his hand, it validates the statement I made-it was rude. My comments in the scoring thread? Such as what?

OKAY.

So I rewatched a repeat of the end of the match tonight just to pay really really extra special close attention to what happened. And I need to amend. so that is my fault.

They DID shake hands. Very very quickly, and I can see how I would've missed it while I was typing on here. But AFTER that, Jim appears to have been trying to talk to Travis and Travis kept turning his head away. So I don't know what that was about but they DID shake hands. So I take back much of what I said and I am so sorry for creating some of the confusion

I asked Jordan about it today. He said they did shake hands, and there was no problem at all in the match. Has no idea what there could be any fuss about.

Well ok. It did look like it from tv, but obviously, you couldn't hear anything and the angle was such that you could not see their faces.

The rest was my fault SORRY

Its no big deal Deb, we all make mistakes and TV coverage doesn't always make you feel like you are really there. The bigger mistake here was made by someone else in this thread who went on a silly name-calling bender before he did a little bit more research (and all he had to do was send an email to one of the players involved). I'm sure all of Travis' fans are looking forward to his apology.

I can tell you Jordan didn't even dwell on it for a minute because I immediately changed the subject to how happy I was to see him again, etc, etc. It's no big deal.

I try to understand what happened… But I still got confused. Someone told me that Travis refused shake hands, and he was so rude and childish also he is prick. I didn’t understand about that…My first impression of Travis---this is a good guy, and he was friendly to everyone. So I didn’t believe that. Because someone also told me He likes Travis too. I was angry the day before yesterday…if I did something wrong, I’m sorry.

I'm sorry Cindy. It was all my fault. I was watching the match and talking to Andrew, and I didn't realize that what I was saying would literally end up EVERYWHERE.

I THOUGHT that Jim and Travis did not shake hands. It was VERY quick and I was probably just looking away. Yesterday I watched a repeat of the match and I paid better attention and saw what really happened. it DID look on the TV that AFTER the handshake there was some hostility there, but obviously, I wasn't there nor could I hear what was happening, so it may have been (and sounds like it was) absolutely nothing.

I will be more careful talking about stuff like this online at the spur of the moment during a match. I'm not used to everything I say on MSN being posted in like 5 places lol.
