Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar hunt passed away today. http://football.guardian.co.uk/breakingnews/feedstory/0,,-6280571,00.html Not only was he responsible for the formation of the AFL, which later merged with the NFL, but he was a great tennis fan. He really was responsible for bringing tennis to television in the 1970s, which led to the big tennis boom. For those of you who remember the WCT tour, he was the founder and at one time the WCT finals in Dallas was argueably one of the biggest tournaments in men's tennis after the slams. He's the guy who started putting tennis on prime time TV. I have a lot of fond memories watching these tournaments. After the U.S. Open and Wimbledon, the WCT finals in Dallas was my favorite tournament.
