There is loads of TV talk about Serena Williams breaking Margaret Court's record of singles wins at the Australian Open. But there is very little talk about Court, which has become par for the course. It is almost as if the ex-champions don't want to talk about her because they pale in comparison when they are talking about themselves. We can argue about the all-time greatest players, and compare and contrast the eras that they played. But what can't be argued is that Margaret Court is the MOST SUCCESSFUL female player of all-time. And it isn't really close. From Wikipedia statistics: "Margaret Court. Court won 62 Grand Slam events (24 singles, 19 doubles, 19 mixed doubles), which is a record for a male or female player. Her 24 Grand Slam singles titles and 19 in mixed doubles are also all-time records across both sexes. She achieved a career Grand Slam in singles, doubles and mixed doubles, is one of two women to have achieved the Grand Slam in singles in the Open Era (alongside Steffi Graf), and is the ...

Battle of the Sexes shows Billie Jean King faced Bobby Riggs over way more than the world's most-watched tennis match
Random Thoughts 3... I'm probably going to die relatively young, I have no illusions about that, but in the meantime I'd really like to watch all 5,854 minutes of 'Homicide: Life On The Street.' Granted, I've never watched a single episode, but it just seems like it'd be a really good show. I wonder what Women's Lib has to say about sushi. I mean, if there's any sexist food, it's definitely sushi. Women can't make sushi, because apparently their hands are warmer than men's, and the rice doesn't stick well. Honestly, I think that's just a historical fallacy used by the patriarchy to subjugate an entire gender, but let's assume this is true, that women literally, genetically, have evolved in such a way as to not be able to make decent sushi. The Japanese have (to generalize horribly) a long history of making sure women were socially useless as anything other than baby machines (Newsweek, "Take a Hike, Hiroshi", August 10, 1992, (2 pages).

Highlights of a benfit event featuring a rematch of Stacie "Billie Jean" and Robert "Bobby Riggs"
"Be bold. If you're going to make an error, make a doozey, and don't be afraid to hit the ball." – Billie Jean King About Billie Jean King Billie Jean King, the American tennis champion, is best known for "The Battle of the Sexes," her 1973 match against men's champion Bobby Riggs. Her win gave women's tennis a new legitimacy. She was born in California in 1943. She won her first Wimbledon title at age 17, was ranked number one in the world for five years, and is considered one of the world's greatest tennis players. She was also the first American athlete to reveal publicly that she is homosexual. King launched the initiative GreenSlam in 2007 to encourage the sports world to be more environmentally conscious. She lives in New York and Chicago.
From Bobby Riggs - and I agree with this message: "Happy New Year and I just wanted to remind everyone that Senator Thad Cochran voted to fund Obamacare after it had been defunded in the House and Senate on Sept 27, 2013. Obamacare was defunded and the only way it could have been revived was for six of the 46 Republican Senators to vote with Harry Reid on the cloture motion to end debate in the Senate. Thad Cochran was one of those Republican Senators who voted with Reid to fund Obamacare. After voting with the Democrats on the cloture motion Senator Cochran then voted on the CR to fund the government that no longer contained the ban on funding Obamacare. Thad Cochran if you read my feed I wish you would quit lying to the public about your votes on this critical issue, shame on you Senator. May 2014 be your last year in the US Senate, you have been voting against the wishes of your constituency for decades now, it's time to throw in the towel, your constituency is coming to get you out of office."

This date in Pasadena, Texas history – or nearby: On Sunday, December 8, 2013 they started demolishing the Houston Astrodome. Built in 1965 many of us had personal connections. My father drilled the water wells for the sand & gravel contractors on site to make the concrete. My wife’s grandfather was an electrician who helped wire the place. What is your connection to the “Eighth Wonder of the World?” We experienced baseball games, football games, rodeos and conventions in the first doomed stadium in the world. Texas can-do! We were there in 1992 when George H. W. Bush was selected at the Republican National Convention. Didn’t Elvis perform there? Selena? What about monster trucks? Or the AMA Grand National Championship? A movie set? Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs tennis match. The events were endless. An incredible place that will never be forgotten.
Foolish Pleasure (March 23, 1972–November 2, 1994) was an American bay thoroughbred race horse who was born in Williston, Florida. He was one of the top three three-year-old colts of his time. Owned by John L. Greer and trained by LeRoy Jolley, who had previously been partners in the colt Ridan, Foolish Pleasure was undefeated as a two-year-old. In 1975, at age three, he won the Flamingo Stakes, Wood Memorial Stakes, and Kentucky Derby. Although heavily favored to win, he finished second to longshots in both the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. He was racing at the same time as Ruffian, the "Queen of the Fillies," who had won all ten of her races, including the Fillies' Triple Crown. In July 1975, a match race was arranged between the horses. They had the same jockey—Jacinto Vásquez, who chose to ride Ruffian, with Braulio Baeza taking over on Foolish Pleasure. This race became a highly publicized "battle of the sexes" contest, similar to the tennis matches between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs that ...
