Jim Rome Jim Everett incident A real low point in TV sports journalism: An ESPN interview turns into the Jerry Springer Show when host Jim Rome repeatedly refers to his guest, NFL quarterback Jim Everett, as Chris. (Rome's accusation, I assume, was that Everett played like a girl.) I've often wondered what tennis star Chris Evert thought about this.

Renee Richards Remember the uproar about tennis player Renee Richards in the 1970s? The reason for the kerfuffle? She used to be Richard Raskind.

Anna Kournikova Ah, yes...adorable Anna Kournikova! She was the Russian tennis goddess with the incredible good looks and the incredibly mediocre record. Anna reached the semifinals of Wimbledon in 1997 at the age of 16--and never did much after that. Despite never having won a professional title in singles, Anna was always among the tour's leading earners in endorsements. (Gee, I wonder why.) She famously dated Russian the two hockey stars pictured here, Pavel Bure and Slava Fedisov. Both experienced declines in their careers after dating Anna.

Featured Member- Lava1964 I was born in a small Canadian city in 1964. I am unmarried. Miss Right has not yet come along. I'm beginning to think she never will. As a kid, I loved acquiring knowledge on a variety of topics, hence my love of trivia. My father got me interested in history by making me watch documentaries when I was eight years old. I am truly grateful he did this. I developed my own passion for sports history. My favorite sports are baseball, boxing, tennis, hockey, football, and soccer. Baseball is far and away my favorite. I live and die with the exploits of the Boston Red Sox. (I was a Red Sox fan long before it became fashionable.) I played fastpitch softball as a kid when that was a popular pastime in Canada. I was a second baseman: Good glove, weak arm, decent contact hitter, not much power. I normally batted second. I have been a softball umpire since 1978. Last time I counted, I had worked over 2,300 games. I've always loved words and the English language. Its possibilities are truly limitless. I modestly say I am a writer of some repute. I began writing pieces for sports encyclopedias at age 19 and really haven't stopped penning sports articles since then. I used to write a weekly sports nostalgia column for a local newspaper. I allegedly had half a million readers at one time. (My column ran for five years before a dim-witted editor took over the sports department and dismissed all the freelance columnists and replaced them with hand-picked toadies. Accordingly, I have put a curse on him and his family. I've had three books on baseball history published. All have received kind reviews. I still write the occasional piece for nostalgia publications. If anyone is really interested in my stuff, I sell collections of my columns on demand. My books are available through mail order from my publisher in North Carolina. I am a tournament Scrabble player and official. I have an expert rating (which I am quite proud of) and I'm usually ranked in the top 40 in Canada. I help run a local club and local tourneys, and, for some reason, I am much in demand to officiate and organize tournaments in many places. Scrabble has allowed me to travel to Las Vegas, Reno, Phoenix, New Orleans, and this summer...Orlando. It's nice work if you can get it. It must be my aptitude for organization which I acquired from both my parents. Scrabble is quite a diverse and odd subculture. Nevertheless, my best friends are Scrabble players. The game helps me retain what is left of my sanity. Along those same lines, I enjoy all competitive endeavors. I always play to win. This is why I love game shows too, I suppose. Occasionally I do real jobs too. I've been a private tutor since 1994. My students think I'm brilliant. I always try to live up to their expectations. I think I have a good sense of humor. It's a hybrid of American and British mirth. I especially love puns. I am cuddly.

Connors Vs Borg 1976 Two minutes from the 1976 U.S. Open men's final between Jimmy Connors and Bjorn Borg. This was the second of only three years when the U.S. Open was played on clay courts at Forest Hills. Personally I like these old matches better than today's tennis. The server wasn't as dominant and the players had to craft the points back then.

John McEnroe Tantrum Montage John McEnroe was one of the greatest tennis players ever. Unfortunately, he will be often remembered for these types of outbursts.
