As was discussed extensively during yesterday's podcast, I'm still waiting on the post on "Champagne Kim's" win by Pete Bodo. But in the meantime: His post on Kimmy' retirement, four years ago.
When I first saw Clijsters, I groaned. I thought: very good athlete, excellent movement for a girl so thickly built, a game with roughly the same degree of sex appeal as curling, but without the wacky bits that make curling fun to watch for 30 seconds. She might have moved me off my position if she had showed some heart and drive, won me over with her competitive character, but as time went on it became apparent to me that she was one of the least inspired players I've ever watched.
So...you're saying you're not a fan. Got it.
It's so perplexing. I would hope that the good people of FD know that any ire I direct towards a player is completely in jest and really, for comedic storytelling purposes only. I mean, what's the fun of a narrative without a villain, right?
But this post isn't trying to be funny. It isn't poking fun. It's just plain mean and unnecessarily judgmental. Kim clearly, at some point in her career, must have taken a shit on Pete's head. That's the only explanation for this level of disdain. I wasn't even a Kim fan back in the day and I found it really uncomfortable to read.
It reeks of a guy who's been rejected by a girl and goes around telling everyone she was borderline retarded.
