I love sports shows, probably more than most. I watched 30 for 30 on Jimmy Connors last night – Is This What They Want? It was really interesting. I am not sure it will be as interesting to others as it was do me but on the chance it might be, I bring it to your attention.
My family (other than me) was heavily into tennis. I was aware of Jimmy Connors in the 1970’s, 1980’s and the 1990’s. That his career spanned an entire Saturn cycle should give you a clue. He’s a piece of work to be sure. But one hell of a player and COMPETITOR.
I always go for the iconoclast (see tag – iconoclast). I am not alone! Jimmy Connors, the bastard -outsider could really please the crowd like not other. You could compare him to Donald Trump in the modern day.
To give you an idea, the level of his repulsiveness, he got involved with fellow #1 tennis player, Chris Evert, back it the day. They were the dream love match. America’s sweethearts..
H revealed in his book that she aborted their baby…this is what ended their relationship. He wound up marrying a Playboy centerfold. They remain married today.
I think this really shows the Moon (in Aquarius). Mercury, Jupiter, Pluto t-square in his chart.
Anyway, if you want to watch a show on this bastard and like him in spite of yourself, you can. Or alternately, you can just get real mad, which I don’t think will bother him in the least.
Were you around to see Jimmy Connors play tennis?
