It's bad enough that I have to listen to Corina Morariu, Barry McKay and Lindsay Davenport mangle the pronunciation of everything from players' names to the country where the Sony Ericsson Championships take place. But I'm used to that. Some of the other banter is worse. Like hearing Morariu (who I'm quite sure is neither vegan nor vegetarian) be oh, so shocked that people eat camels. How is that any worse than eating lambs or cows (this happens to be a pet peeve of mine)? Or hearing Davenport inform us that Maria Sharapova "feels more Russian than American," after Sharapova has almost had to take out a billboard that says I'M RUSSIAN. Or hearing Vera Zvonareva's psychological makeup deconstructed practically on the half-hour.
Stop it! Talk about the tennis matches, and if you have nothing to say about them, remember--silence is nice.
