Lame Quotes from Mary Carillo

Blinkism

Does anyone else notice Mary Carillo says some really lame things?

I'll start it off

"RF usually stands for Roger Federer, but today it'll stand for Roof Federer... because he's playing under the roof" - Carillo, on Federer playing under a roof.

"He's going to cry so much that roof won't matter" - Carillo, on Federer potentially crying if he wins Wimbledon.

We've all heard Carillo say some lame things, so if you hear something really lame, post it here so we can all have some laughs!

BTW, did anyone see her, fernandez, and shriver do the "Big Babe Tennis" skit?
*Facepalm*

yeah, that big babe skit is pretty painful but i blame ESPN more for coming up with the ridiculous idea.....even Cahill face-palmed it right after they showed it

My favorite part was the Black and White sequences from the 80's. Please. I realize that was for effect.

Never really liked Pam Shriver, but re5pek. She's still fairly mobile and her strokes are actually more fluid now. And she plays with a Babolat Pure Storm Limited.....cool. A far cry from the oversized Princes she played with as a pro.

I tried to watch that from a ''Little Babe'' perspective (Dulko / Hingis / Justine) and it's even more lame.

From a male perspective....self indulgent BS is all that was.

Hahhaah, true. But, what bills? Her husband is Federer's agent. Not only is he well-compensated, but everything's a write-off.

Anyway, yeah, she's aged well.
I had a crush in her in 12s and 14s.

Just a few quotes? How about everything she said during a play? Nothing is more annoying than people talking during a play...

Mary Carillo is annoying. Her only claim to fame is that she is from the same area as John McEnroe and they won the French Open mixed doubles together.

^^^^I thought you had to have at least one female for a mixed doubles team? I guess the French made an exception for Mr. Carillo.

Last year at the FO, Carillo tried to coin, "Big babes on bricks!!" None of the other commentators would indulge her and run with it, so she quit saying it after a couple of days. Wish she would go away.

Mary seems pretty bright and I cut her more slack than most, but the preconceived cheesy sayings have to stop. This thread has serious potential.
 
I don't cut ugly Mary any slack. Get her off the air and Enberg too. Heck, make sure Collins and Gilbert don't get any airtime either!

I remember that and that was a perfect analysis. Thank you so much. AHAH.

Big Babe Tennis was miserable to watch. What an awful idea of a video.

I absolutely hated it.....whose idea was it!?!??!?!


Cahill and Gilbert's video on volleying (it was shown today) was much better.
