Bud Collins
« on: July 19, 2013, 06:34:24 AM »
what is he up to nowadays? As much he was silly/different he was so colorful. I loved his legendary predictions that never came through.

If Bud says 'a player A' is winning this or that, the player A was f*cked  :rofl_2:.

Collins was special  :)

feel free to talk about reporters you like or dislike here.

Though quirky, Bud certainly has a love for tennis.
He brought some color to the commentators both both with his clothing and great tennis stories.  Hope he is well.

I really did not like him or Dick Enberg.

Collins was unceremoniously kicked to the curb by NBC. They found him in the stands at Wimbledon, but no one interviewed him.
