NBC apparently has rocks for brains
Since they decided to fire Bud Collins (legendary tennis commentator and Boston Globe correspondent) from Wimbledon coverage after this year. Now, Collins may have an interesting wardrobe, but as far as I know he had recovered from his recent health problems and is more than capable of guiding American audiences through an understanding of tennis. He is an icon, a landmark, a legend. NBC: firing Bud Collins to get a fresher, younger face on the camera is not going to make American tennis prospects any brighter for the foreseeable future! Andy Roddick is just not at the level of Federer or Nadal! Get over it! At least if Bud was around, we could still remember the glory days. Anyway, hooray for Venus Williams for pulling it out again. I can't believe I've spent this long talking about tennis, but there you go.
