ESPN Should Dump Brad Gilbert
I call Brad Gilbert the new Bud Collins. We've all seen Bud Collins in his flashy, idiotic pants and mismatched shirt standing with a microphone in his hand and making insanely stupid comments. Well, Brad Gilbert is exactly like him. Brad Gilbert, as a commentator for televised tennis on ESPN, is a disaster. He makes the most ridiculous and inane comments I have heard since Bud Collins prowled the sidelines back in the 80's. I watched the Hewitt/Del Potro match and got so tired of hearing Brad call Leyton Hewitt "Rusty Hewitt" that I was ready to pull my hair out. Then, after the match, he's sitting in the studio with the other tennis commentators and he's got on a gawd-awful, ill-fitting suit jacket with a fancy handkerchief sticking out of the pocket. Agghhhhhhh!! Please, ESPN, your Wimbeldon coverage stinks because you show too many jock-sniffers and not enough tennis. Don't make it any worse by inflicting Brad Gilbert on your audience.
