The NCAA is using Billy Jean King to continue the farce that is amateurism. It's a shame someone as great as she is is shilling for them.
UNC should probably ask the NCAA to stop playing the Billy Jean King ad during their games (awkward)
Billy Jean King in the recently aired ad: monetary rewards and love of the game by college athletes, are mutually exclusive.

MY BIRTHDAY MESSAGE TO MY FIRENDS ARISE AND TAKE A STAND I am touched by such an outpouring of love by my friends on the occasion of my birthday. I say thank you all for your kind words. At last Billy Jean King, the celebrated *** woman I had mentioned in an earlier write up, is not going to Sochi after all. She was the most popular openly *** former athlete nominated by Obama to lead the US contingent to Sochi. A nomination celebrated by Christianne Amampour (CNN). Her presence would have been the clearest pro *** statement in Sochi. But God works in mysterious ways. One week to the opening of the games her or his mother (what ever gender she is now) took ill and died on the day of the opening ceremony of the Sochi games. While I offer my condolences to other more reasonable members of the family, for the glorious passage of a faithful woman who had lived with her husband for 65 year b4 his death. Unfortunately she bore a daughter who chose the way of the sodomites and became the global *** brand - what ...
Finally can get on board with an Obama statement. Loved his interview with Bob Costas- away to go with selecting our USA reps Brian Boitano, Caitlin Cahow and the great Billy Jean King. BJK is there in spirit though!
Kate McKinnon's impersonation of Billy Jean King is perfection.
Why is President Obama sending former tennis star Billy Jean King as a representive for the Winter Olympics when she had nothing to do with Winter sports?
PBO is skipping Sochi Olympics, but is sending openly *** Billy Jean King & Caitlin Cahow. That's a pretty big stand for human equality.
Just realized how much resembles Billy Jean King
You don't have to like tennis (I don't) to get something out of BATTLE OF SEXES, a doc about infamous Billy Jean King vs Bobby Riggs match.
PBS is having a show about Billy Jean King, the whole Bobby Riggs game and then her coming out as *** I remember the utter shock of that (I was really young) Almost no women had come out at that point and few men. It's nearly over now, but it was a good show. It will probably be on again.
Billy Jean King's glasses make me nostalgic for a time Sally Jesse Raphael ruled the airwaves.
Best line ever: Matt Lauer on the Today Show speaking with Brian Boitano who "came out" the other day after being named to the official United States delegation to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. "Can I say this. and please don't take it the wrong way. I wasn't shocked" . I think the President may have said."Brian. seriously. do you think people don't know you're *** as well.I just appointed Billy Jean King and Caitlin Cahow to the delegation .jump on the band wagon man. Own it already! . LOL. What is funny. the articles I found named Billy Jean and Caitlin "openly *** and Brian got a side note along with others named to the delegation. Good one Matt. I too wasn't shocked.but my question would have been. "what took you so long?" too funny!

Yuletide scenes are all around us despite the scarily warm solstice in New York. Bells are ringing, malls are crowding, and in some quarters Christmas caroling can be heard. The US media is agog with serious problems such as whether Santa Claus was white and the even more troubling problem that Jesus might not be a blue eyed blonde man.  In India a benighted Supreme Court upheld a British colonial law against homosexuality.  In the Emirates of Russia, Putin the Vlad may need to rethink his anti LGBT laws since Billy Jean King and other openly *** athletes will represent the US in the Winter Olympics.  But there is reason for hope; under protests, the Indian government has asked the court to review the law because it "violated the principle of equality".  India’s brilliant mythologist Devdutt Puttnaik upset a lot of Hindus by declaring that homophobia is not a part of India’s religious heritage. there are good tidings from Moscow:  Nadia and Masha, the two jailed members of the Russian feminist p ...
*** alert! Billy Jean King is going to drive her Subaru into Red Square doing donuts & blasting Melissa Etheridge
I taught at Poly HS in Long Beach in the 1970's. the alma mater of Billy Jean Moffit, nee King. I played a lot of tennis in those days, good shape. One of my students was a tennis player with a bullet, she was already getting recruited. I went out and hit the ball with her one day, cleaned the court with me, totally killed me. She went on to pros, small solace, until injury sidelined her career. Tennis at Poly has a great legacy, about to get even greater with BJK going to Sochi. Give Putin the middle finger for all of us BJK! Billy Jean King rocks ever.
"There is no demographic in this world that gives less of a flip than 70-year-old *** " - Kate McKinnon as Billy Jean King on "Saturday Night Live"
The Billy Jean King skit on SNL was hilarious!
I'm bringin my arms to Sochi... This ones hammer and this ones sickle "Billy Jean King" on SNL
Omg snl-billy jean king is President Obamas big *** middle finger... This show is hysterical.
Anyone else notice obama just can't seem to get enough of pissing off other world leaders? Why in the *** else would he send Billy Jean King to the Olympics as a spokes woman? / whatever. He's like a bad little kid poking a hornets nest with a stick, he'll walk away clean & the next guy will get stung. This was an obvious slap in the face to Russia. Why do all these liberals think 4 & 5 year-olds need to know anything about sexuality? Teaching tolerance to kids that don't know the concept of homosexuality is just sick. After all maybe 10% of *** have a predisposition that way, the other 90% just kind of get sucked into it.
It's no secret that I'm not a fan of President Obama. That being said, I think he is being derelict in his duties by skipping out on the Winter Olympics. If he wanted to boycott the Olympics, that would be one thing and nobody would attend. But he wants to make a "statement" by not attending, and at the same time sending former Olympic athletes such as Brian Boytonno, and Billy Jean King along with a Deputy Secretary of State. Obama is, in my opinion, acting like a scared child by not attending. He needs to be there showing support for the American team or not have American representation, period
Is anyone as confused as me? This weeks news had the appointment of Billy Jean King and Brian Boitano to represent the USA in Russia at the Sochi Olympics and the controversy of Phil Robertson's comments to GQ. I love Duck Dynasty but at the core Phil's comments sound a lot like Vladimir Putin's. Should we as a country be sending Billy Jean and Brian to represent us when we aren't united at home?
I UNDERSTAND Billy Jean King will be carrying the American Flag for the opening Olympian Parade of Athletes...
I'm Confused about Something: Russia Finally has a Democracy. Isn't that what we are proud about who we are? Then shouldn't we be pleased that Russia is now a Democracy? And shouldn't we respect other nations' democracies, as we do our own? Or "Democracy" in general? Well then, why did our President chose to send, deliberately, Delegates whom just happen to be LGBT, when the Russian parliament simply did not rule that *** Marriage is legal? So, our duly elected president Likes democracies when they elect him or vote in favor of one of his, or his party's polices; but if some other country--whom we should be delighted has recently become a Democracy--exercises it's Democratic Process, and we simply disagree with them, this is the kind of silly stuff we do? is this dignified? And how can Billy Jean King allow herself to be used like this? And, what right do we have to disagree with another country's Democratic Process? And then seek to what, Punish them? Does anyone believe Putin cares what Obama thinks? Th ...
Must Be The Dry Climate The state of Washington joined professional boxing four months ago to create the worst sporting event since the gladiators hacked each other up. Seattle and the MMA hosted a fully legitimate prize fight between a former jockey and a former drug dealer, barroom brawler and experienced street fighter. Well I can see the P.T. Barnam value in that but here's the finger down my throat part: the former jockey was a man and the street fighter was and still is a woman. Congratulations to both of them for being the two steps backward after the one step forward gained by battered women over the last twenty years. During that time tough laws in almost all the states were passed that are decidedly biased in favor of the woman. They need to be to try and counter the physical rage some men just can't control. In Seattle alone there were 16,000 cases reported last year of men beating women, many times to death. The cops hate domestic violence calls more that any other as their outcome can often b ...
Jonathan Carl of ABC (tonight's evening news) quoted the president saying "when it comes to the Olympics and athletic performance, we don't make distinctions on the basis of sexual performance." (Referring to Billy Jean King to headline the Olympic delegation of the opening ceremonies in Russia). I hope that was a misquote! Otherwise I'm thinking the NSA knows a lot more about us than we can imagine!
Hahha according to this ABC newcaster billy jean king is lousy in bed and even premature ejaculatots can go to the olympics. Listen at the end of quote
Select Miche Styles are 50% off - MONDAY ONLY!
While watching World News tonight at 6pm Diane Sawyer is talking with the white house correspondent on sending Billy Jean King to the Olympics as the representative for the USA. He quoted the White House as saying this was to show that America doesn't judge people on their sexual "performance". Shouldn't that have been "orientation"?
Anyone watching the 630 pm ABC News will notice that when the reporter Johnathan Karl was sharing news about the Olympic Games he quoted President Obama as saying, by sending Billy Jean King to the delegation they see we didn't judge athletes on their sexual performance! Check it out. I wonder by what standards we are measuring this???
This just happened on ABC World News 12/20/2013 6:40pm Eastern Time: the reporter said something like, referring to Billy Jean King leading the US delegation at the Olympics: "that the athletes will not be judged on sexual performance".he meant to say preference.
Obama's sending Brian Boitano and Billy Jean King to Russia. Maybe my favorite decision by an American President in my life time.
OK, are my final observations now that the POS, oops I mean POTUS, no I think I had it right the first time!!! 1. He showed up 19 minutes late!!! Extremely disrespectful! 2. What does immigration have to do with Americans getting pay raises??? 3. Why don't you just throw it in our face a few more times that we are paying for your fabulous vacation to Hawaii? I believe the exact comment was that he would be able to reflect better after a couple of days of sleep and sun! Does he have any idea of how few Americans can afford to go to CA or FL, let alone Hawaii? Sure, Mr. , just drop that bombshell on the people! 4. First of all he said that a million people had signed up for Obummercare, then later he said 2 million, so what is the number because there is about a million differences between one and two million! And how is it that the number can even be 1 million b/c the numbers look like less than half a million and I find it hard to believe that if the number wasn't so pathetic, they would be yelli ...
Just wondering if anyone else is hoping the Russians refuse admittance to Obama's "American Delegation" comprised of Billy Jean King and Brian Boitano( essentially our president is giving the finger to Russia) and does not allow them exit the planes? That would be funny.
GREAT NEWS: Gold medalist at the 1988 Calgary Olympics, figure skating legend Brian Boitano has come out publicly, just days after being named as a delegate for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. He joins tennis star Billy Jean King and Olympic ice hockey silver and bronze medalist Caitlin Cahow as the third openly LGBT member of the US delegation to Sochi.
Billy Jean King is going to Russia to teach them about "Truth, justice, and the American *** !"
I see that 1988 olympic figure skating gold medalist Brian Boitano has made an announcement that he is *** Next we will be notified that the sky is blue, grass is green, and that the big round thing in the sky is called the moon. Why is it that so many *** athletes and celebrities think that I or anyone else gives a crap whether they are attracted to males or females. Why is it that there are so many *** people who believe that no one knows they are *** unless they announce it? It is obvious to the most casual observer that persons such as Billy Jean King, Martina Navratilova, Rosie O'Donnell, and hundreds of others are *** And apparently those casual observers knew it long before the closeted ones did. It was a surprise to me that Rock Hudson and the Brady bunch dad was *** and my reaction was . oh, okay, whatever. How many heterosexuals feel the need to call a press conference to announce that they are not *** I could go on for days on this topic, but let me stop here and just say this. No one g ...
Did you know that for the first time in 7 Olympic Games, the USA delegation will not include the President nor his family. Instead, Billy Jean King and other *** and *** leaders will be our official representatives.
Preparing for 2014 Received an amazing gem of wisdom while meeting with my good friend Zlatko Stupavsky at Carpe Diem Coffee & Tea Co. today. While competing in the World Team Tennis Championship over a decade ago. Billy Jean King asked Zlatko and Joey Scrivano what the key to championship level play. Her quote, "Champions adjust." In the coming year you and I will live in ever changing circumstances. Nothing stays the same in life--- and in 2014, even the change will change. God wants us to learn to adjust to what's 'thrown at us' and not to lose heart. You're not alone. Champions adjust.
Peeps...u know me not political but justice and I'm there. So go Obama not attending the Olympics but sending our *** ! Bryan Boitano and billy jean king - going! And Brian comes out after becoming Olympic ambassador. So cute! And that's not all. Madonna's art for freedom has made huge strides. Although my gang isn't that big we are making small strides for justice, equality and peace and love! Share! Xo jb
No, I don't have to be tolerant of someone else's intolerance.and I remain informed and inspired by the fact that Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Alice Paul, those who fought from within the Warsaw Ghetto, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., Delores Huerta, bell hooks, Angela Davis. Harvey Milk, Billy Jean King, the first women rabbis in America, Yitzhak Rabin, Joan Jett (who confronted no small amount of sexism on stage), my Butch-Femme family, the Women of The Wall, Irshad Manji, those struggling for a trans-inclusive MichFest, Janet Mock, out *** Jews (and Muslims and Catholics), the students of Eastside Catholic High School (look it up) and Malala Yousafzai (among so many others) weren't tolerant of it either.
Most important sporting moments: NCAA College Basketball: Texas Western (now UTEP) led by the Bear Don Haskins starts five African-American basketball players and beats Adolph Rupp's all-white No. 1 ranked team led by Pat Riley. Pro Football: Super Bowl III--Joe Willie Namath guarantees victory as the AFL New York Jets beat the NFL Baltimore Colts. This leads to the merger of the two leagues and the modern NFL. College Football: At Legion Field in 1970, USC's Sam "Bam" Cummingham rushes for 135 yards as USC beats Alabama. Cummingham was a prep product of Birmingham but Alabama had no African-American players. Legendary Alabama Coach Bear Bryant asks legendary USC coach John McKay where Cummingham was from and is shocked by the answer. Realizing times are a changin', Bryant integrates his team the next year. 40 years later 20 of 22 Alabama starters are African-American. NBA: Not a game but the 1979 draft brought two future stars that would reshape the NBA. The Lakers draft Magic Johnson and the Celt ...
One of the more clever and cooler moves the U.S. government has made lately was President Obama appointing athlete and LGBT activist Billy Jean King to represent the U.S. at the Sochi Olympics in a very anti-homosexual Russia.
Congratulation to Brian and Billy Jean King for representing the USA in the opening Olympic ceremonies ..Mea CASA Edifice REX is proud of Obama's bold choices of all USA athletic champions going to Russia
I am just loving the US Government criticizing Russia's *** policies.. *** rights in the US have not come NEARLY far enough for them to "call the kettle black"...I am going to predict that the beginning of WW3 will start at the Winter Olympics...when Billy Jean King gets her big old lezbian *** up in Putin's face and does her Olympic twerk...
Obama sending billy jean king to the Olympics to represent the U.S.of A. .Phil gets kicked off A&E (and eggheads) . What next???
Can't say I am big fan of "Duck Dynasty", but, if you can grow long beards and pull that gig off.. more power to you!! So, when the old guy expresses his opinion on *** the "politically correct crowd" on their network censures him.. guess I won't make the comment that Obama has appointed Billy Jean King as the LBGT or LGBT or whatever rep. to the Olympics.. we used to joke she was sponsored by Snap On Tools!!
The President of the U.S. and his staff take a global stand for human rights. Additionally he names openly *** people as His representatives. Billy Jean King has been working for women's rights and human rights for a very long time.
Billy Jean King, Caitlin Cahow, Brian Boitano, Janet Napolitano... It's an interesting list, is all I'm saying.
I praise our president, first lady, vice president, and other world leaders for boycotting winter Olympic opening ceremonies in Russia, standing up to Putins anti *** sentiments and rules that they are banned from competing...and happy to see we are sending a male *** ex Olympian and Billy Jean king a long known *** tennis pro in their stead!!! Go USA!!! Peace and love!
Who is going to watch the Winter Olympics? I have mixed emotions. On one hand I want to support our athletes and watch their success, but I really don't want to support NBC or Putin. I am proud President Obama and VP Biden are not going and I totally support the President's selection of Billy Jean King and Caitlin Cahow as representative of the Administration.
Outstanding: Billy Jean King; world class athlete; author of Pressure Is a Privilege (great book title); openly *** USA Delegate to the Winter Olympics held in Sochi...RUSSIA :)
While I am on a roll, why is the POTUS sending people to the Olympic delegation in Russia based exclusively on their sexual preference? Billy Jean King and others were chosen to represent the US ONLY because they are homosexuals. What is our country really standing for?
what kind of parents would want these woman to be a roll model for there little girls, billy jean king and this hockey player, and who would want to have them as reps for our country,this is not the image we would want to promote for our country. and our president should do some real soul searching, he represents a CHRISTIAN people and this is not the the message of the people, it is of a select few.
I award our President 1000 prez points for sending Billy Jean King and another activist to the upcoming Olympic Games in Russia in response to Russia's "homosexual propaganda" law. Feel free to join us in the 20th century, Ruskies. That is exactly the kind of thing that I would do if I were President. If you find yourself concerned about the preferences of another, seek help. That's just one man's opinion.
Billy Jean King is a woman? Man, I guess the next thing you'll tell me is that Marilyn Manson is a man? Good thing I'm pretty...
I am very pleased with President Barack Obamas decision to send Billy Jean King to represent our country at the Winter Olympics in Russia. Take that, Putin you homophobic weirdo!
Now our president is fighting w/ Puten the same way he faught with Congress. Like a couple of little kids batteling over a made up game. By not going to the Olympics in Russia under the pretence of not likeing how they treat *** people is just snubbing the American Athletes. If he really wanted to prove his point and cared about American Athletes he'd go and sit next to Billy Jean King. Instead once again his arms are crossed, feet stomping w/ lower lip out saying, "I don't like you. I wont go." Maybe next election we could vote for a grown man. Ok, done w/ my rant.
ON SET Sharing a laugh with Billy Jean King during our interview.
Billy Jean King to be the United States Official Representative for the Olympics in Russia: Great Idea..!
Billy Jean King representing the US at the Winter Olympics. How cool is that (no pun intended).
Kudos for Obama and Biden in there 'subtle ' shunning of that goon Putin and his Olympics…..And sending Billy Jean King in their stead,well that is just sheer brilliance...
Just seen where our fine president nominated Billy Jean King as one of the Olympic Delegates for the US since Russia is antigay. So he and the vp will not be at the Olympics. All i can say is our.President and V.P.are once again having the citizens of the U.S. doing something that they will not do themselves. Obamacare comes to mind also. What great leaders we have here in this United States
Whoa man. Billy Jean King and Elton John look like brother and sister.

We made it home today. My Crew was awesome Stephanie J Schrank and Tom Peevers kept me on track and on the bike. I finished 36 out of 54. Not a bad time for being sick for the past two weeks and just being a week out of an epidural.
