Open Letter to the Sport of Tennis

Open Letter to the Sport of Tennis

Dear Tennis,

What is your deal? You obviously think your special. Using all those words like "love" and crap in your scores. What is wrong with a number score, huh? What do you have against 5-0, or "its tied up" or "scoreless". I mean, "deuce"? It isnt a card game for Pete's sake, its a sport with a ball, which should use the number system. Oh and if that isnt bad enough, your female players wear skirts. Well, la-ti-da, arent you something? Please. Oh, and your fans? Boring. Their polite little applause like they all sticks up their bums. How about some shouting in the stands? Or someone throwing a plastic beer cup, or a people with painted faces? Nope, too good for that obviously. Then you go and put yourself into a wii game, and now my children are using your ridiculous terms for scores, and frankly, its making me ill. Please stop the insanity.

So true. The sport of the upper crust, the nobility. BLah!! I want to see the shirtless guys with their chests painted!

This is truly a letter that needed to be written. I hope you have the address for "Sport of Tennis" and send them the official letter.

Who hasn't thought of writing this letter? :)

p.s. - What's the deal with all the playing surfaces? grass, cement, CLAY???

Golf could use a similar letter. Oooh, look at me, I'm playing a sport while wearing Ralph Lauren.

I took tennis lessons four summers ago and got all into it. Tennis skirts and everything...but I could never figure out how to keep score! It is confusing.

Gigi said...

Amen. I hate those stupid tennis scores and the white clothes and cableknit pullovers all over the place and the complete LACK of screaming and fist fights.

Gotta admit, that is why John McEnroe was so popular! He would throw a fit on the court and all of us commoners would love it!!!!

And why can't you go 1-nothing, 2-nothing? Why 15, then 30, then 40? Why are the first 2 points worth 15 points each and the third point is only worth 10? Why don't you try making sense?
