Subject: Bud collins- Federer won't win a slam this year

Thanks Bud. this should now mean Federer will not only tie Petes record
this year. but break it.
Bud's predictions usually turn out the opposite.

We will know after the year ending US Open who won what.
Only the moronic, sensation seeking senile old jackass Bud Collins
would say that "Federer won't win a slam this year".
Federer could win one, two or three slams, depending on his health/
fortune and the health/fortune of his main competitors.

If Federer wins two he can claim "50% predictive ability".

"A media caricature"? Not without Collins's consent,
I think. He has always wanted to make *himself* the
show imo, despite whatever tennis knowledge he might
have.. 20-25 years ago I remember thinking "c'mon
Collins, enough about you, give us a glimmer of the
match- and he would, most times. Then it was his
absurd get-up- the striped orange pants et c..- finally
an attention-whore who makes the Lisper look demure.

In fact, he's forgotten just about *everything* about tennis.

Not to be mean or anything, but Collins was the one who turned himself
into a variety act. He used to provide smart commentary in between the
clowning around and the coining of idiotic nicknames. Then he chose to
stay with the schtick and drop the smarts.

No, he hasn't forgotten anything -- he's still an incredibly knowledgeable man
to talk to in person.

But here, sadly, Pedro is right. The Bud you see on TV these days, and for the
most part in print, is a media caricature of what Collins has always been. It's
a shame, but he must be very well paid to so demean himself.

It's quite sad to see senile dementia on television. Someone should stick
ole Bud in the old folks home where he can drool in peace.
