I remember when Namath’s commercial came out and the big question was, “Did he shave his legs or not?” We watched the Packers all the time and Starr was today’s. These two are actually when I was a teenager.
Even though I didn’t really follow tennis, we tuned in to watch, the “bad boy of tennis.” It was kind of like going to a hockey game to watch the fights.
I like Freddy Couples too. He’s played a long time even with his back problems and he’s cute even with gray hair and a great smile.
Here’s the story on
The company was flying me to to pick up a flight later that day (called deadheading) and who should I sit by but Mr. Hustle himself. What it boiled down to was he asked me how much he would have to pay me to call in sick and stay in Vegas with him. If I recall, he wanted to know if $50-60,000 would do it. Needless to say, I thought it was a joke and he was an arrogant ass.
Also I remember that people would come to our seats for autographs and he was gracious about it until they walked away and then he pretty much made shit out of them. That was disappointing.
Happy Mother’s Day Mother Lady Andrea!
