Unfortunately giving fodder for the argument that we don’t care about our elders (or the old), there was a sparse crowd at this casual chat between Bud Collins and Charlie Pasarell on the first weekend of the Pacific Life Open. (Pasarell, a former pro, is the tournament’s ATP director.)
As expected, Bud was in full regalia: green polo under a pink knit sweater paired with a pair of coral blue pants with big teal polka dots. Yowza.
For my fellow triviaphiles: The newest edition of The Bud Collins History of Tennis: An Authoritative Encyclopedia and Record Book will drop on June 1. You can pre-order if you wish.
