    Listened to your very first broadcast on 690. Always very informative EXCEPT with my favorite sport tennis. I know tennis isn’t the NFL but the very few times ive heard you cover it, you mispronounced the names of players, and basically botched the coverage (very un Lee Hamilton like). Occasionally you used to have John Macenroe on your show, but I was always stunned that when Indian Wells came along each year (considered by many the major of the west) you gave it literally no coverage. How about some tennis my friend. If you took an Interest, I bet you be the best reporter on the scene.
