John's Monday Washington Post Article...

Here is my column today for The Washington Post ------

It is tempting to begin any review of this past weekend's sports events with the Washington Redskins' loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. After all, the coverage of the Redskins in The Post and the local media is so understated. Just in case you missed it: Giants 23, Redskins 17.
Okay, enough about that.

Let's move on to the Serena Williams debacle. Rarely is there a perfect storm quite like this in sports: Everyone involved managed to get this wrong (with the exception of Kim Clijsters, Williams's opponents and an innocent bystander).

Listening to DC sports radio today I was curious to hear JT2's comments. He seemed a bemused spectator reluctant to enter the verbal fray over Mike Jordan's HOF acceptance speech. Was he tacitly saying, that's just Jordan being Jordan?

IMHO, the hyper-competitive tenor of Jordan's comments was what made him great on the court (assisted ably by all the non-calls the NBA/Media mandated for him).

Unfortunately MJ is unwilling to divorce the court from personal life. it's the Strasberg school on steroids.

Not a person I'd ever want to meet in a social situation.
