Quote of the Day (Tennis Great/Brat Jimmy Connors, With No Apologies)

“I make no apologies for the way I played tennis. I wasn't out there to win a popularity contest—I was out there to win—and entertain at the same time. The thing is, I was good at being a bad boy, a real one.  Not like some of the pretend bad boys who said sorry after every little incident. Face up to it or don’t do it.  I always accepted the fines, suspensions and screaming headlines that followed my spontaneous assholery. That is a word, right? Well, it is now.”— Jimmy Connors, The Outsider: A Memoir (2013)
