Episode 73 is a change of pace: a whole episode full of our recurring segments, including The Rant, #SeeWhatHadHappenedWas, the Spelling Bey, and #NameTheTennisPlayer. We devote the first 20 minutes to a particularly enraging moment in John McEnroe history, one which is relevant to the continued debasement of young people of color in sport and elsewhere. After that, it's all fun and games. Your hosts take quizzes, spelling tests, and put forth their picks for the greatest players without a Slam singles title.
