"What we what what we said i think in in the previous podcast well of i'll just read out what he's had to say and really yeah. We're really grateful for for correspondence like this. He said a big admire of the poem. One view back is received. Lovely shouts out from me. I'm including fun. Memory of tomah introduce myself to at roland. Garros africa's may much of simone macho some of the proper fan but they down to watch it much and just so happened to bump didn't bump into matto afterwards says no ide if you read essays coming through the website. We absolutely david. But i haven't admittedly minor into pick. Mit in hopes. That you reconsider position of talking trash about non rafael nadal males. A male athletes wearing tank tops. Some tennis charging mates of mine. Know that i'm generally of all types of athlete bodies men and women anima personal fan of tanks and short shorts for men stylistic choices i like to see the body of athletes on display in. Don't really understand why men seem so eager to have blankets over their biceps or knees while working out just a personal taste thing anyway. My friends my attention does that. Twitter was going crazy about various top and there was general feeling. He didn't have the physique to pull it off. Something echoed on your show to my again admittedly minor disappointment. I'm actually in some displeased about this. I it's worth nineteen verve is not somebody i enjoy watching and i think he is deserving of real criticism about his behavior in fact i think the adp shamed it so by not instituting at domestic violence policy in suspended suspending him after the accusations levied by his ex and all of that is for more important than critique of his arms. My commentary really isn't about him all the mayo players wearing tank. Yes thank you. Michael emma and lead to terrific story there and i wonder if the tank top critique would be levied these lesser known players. Perhaps the criticism observe really is grounded feelings about his character or playing style. All that said zverev is one of the best. Tennis players in the world and a high end athlete with an incredible physique. Is chiseled body very little body fat an arms that showed distinct musculature. But what if he didn't. What if you had a long skinny arms. What if he was a little on the heavy side. There is no questioning that he works extremely hard to support his physique and that that sort of fitness is very difficult for most adult men to acquire. My question to you is what is the message it sends when fans or critics start saying this world class. Athletes body isn't good enough to show. I don't want to geor full. Quivalent between how men and women receive feedback on their bodies in cultural climate. I'm just pointing out. That may be critiquing male bodies on the physical worthiness for style feels weird to me. I don't really understand where it comes from or to turn it towards the positives. Perhaps it would be better to celebrate all of the buddies on display. One thing i love about tennis is how it supports polymorphic body types. You have long stretchy. Actimel slate kevin anderson lean gumby types jovic or compact. Where retool what. He's like days. Alex or david goffin or breezing agricultural thick chested wearing the diversity was gender. Cross body type is a big part of tennessee's appeal. In my opinion you can have body. Resembling that of serena williams taylor townsend or the place curva sisters or semana help or katie boulter and high end athleticism aside. You can still play this beautiful game again. My point isn't about zverev. He's a bit of an unwelcome distraction in many ways. The point is more that we are fans of sports and the bodies on display on the same and to me. That's a beautiful thing. Perhaps i have a bias towards the style of less clothing live in austin texas and they lived in mobile for the policy is and for my taste wearing less particularly particularly during the hot summer. Days is more. I'm not. We'll never be like zverev. But i have become a committed runner and swimming in recent years. And i've learned that treating my buddy below the cairn energy. I can is worthy use of my time when i look at professional athletes and admire the skill and grace and beauty. I find much to inspire my own efforts to care for my body. And so i think athlete body should be admired and appreciated across the board and not shamed. I completely agree with him. And i would like to retract. What we said about in the outfit in relation to nepal and others in that type of out. The i still out. I still think there are. There is a very valid reason for not to be wearing that that we touched on in las podcast. And we don't need to go into weekend but in terms of the body shaming which we absolutely didn't intend but i'm very grateful for that perspective being brought to our attention in such a away and i agree with everything that david has to say that and it is it is such a wonderful thing and and quite unique thing that tennis takes takes all body. Types isn't it. Yeah this all well if you got talent. I haven't well some would tell you that the hard work is everything david and not comment. I mean i think talent is quite significant. David is a very hard worker. I think that's it for rounding up the tennis from day. Three grigor dimitrov one. Alex boats blessed that was a bit of an afterthought wasn't it because it was sort of after and after halla and but it happened. He's into round number three order play for day four which we expect to be a bit of a lull of today the i mean can we possibly expect live up to today. I i doubt it somehow but this is what you have in store for. The inevitably disappointing day for open. Don collins against carolina is i on the world labor arena which is a very good start he gets star. I'm reading none of us have been lured into the push of atrop- this slam which inevitably mean she's she's going to definitely reached the quarters and probably when the thing.

How well versed in the language all these characters were they really were. You've you heard Bill Townsend. But home in Hamilton was a spectacular rider, a spectacular master of the English language as was Hamilton tap. And the things they wrote about one another about events there. We're we're classic. But this is what Holman Hamilton said at the first meeting of the roundtable after in September after Bill passed away. And he said he said this. Tonight. I would not say a word about the career of William H Townsend or about the charming books. He wrote or the professional triumphs. He scored these are in this fear of common knowledge now appreciation of them has appropriately passed into the public domain and posterity will be earth. Ultimate judge permit me instead to voice for you. What any of you his sincere friends would surely say let it be underscored here. And now that Bill Townsend in this organization built a solid community of spirit and s spray a delightful appreciation of man for man, a brotherliness a rare achievement of. Affection without the slightest sign of affection. This do we not agree is the best in Kentucky. This is friendship. Others might use the very words he used, but those same words would fall lifeless and dull he had a sense of timing a significant pause and awareness of contrast and a flare of drama if Kentucky inns have long combined in an amazingly attractive way characteristics of the earthly and genteel. Here was a man who above all others represented the quintessence of the combination. How rich the heritage how pervasive the influence? How meaningful the tradition? Even we cannot finally say, but who would deny that the colors in the tapestries have Kentucky's historic past seem less likely to fade because a Bill Townsend color, charm, imaginative excursions, tantalizing anecdotes and the zest for reporte. We experienced them all at first hand because we knew it. Ours is a treasure of cultural comradeship with a premium far beyond material calculation, and that salty son of Anderson county is that catalyst to whom we are all indebted like Mark Twain, whom in many ways Bill Townsend so strongly resembles may we not paraphrase the lines of the Australian, poet, Robert Richardson. Warm summer sun shine kindly here. Warm Sud southern wind blow softly here. Green sod above li-, light light good night. Dear friend, goodnight. Goodnight. That's an example, just how incredible.

But he wrote two he edited tons of memoirs and diaries of mostly confederate soldiers because he came from Tennessee and bell was the speaker the night that home and gave that talk and bell got up and before he began his talk. He said built Townsend. Represents to me more of what I love about Kentucky than any human being. I've ever know. What attribute? So. That's a remarkable tribute from Bill. Yeah. Yeah. Wonderful and we've gone through a whole crowd of great presidents. I mean home, and of course, became the president for a significant period of time. I think more than ten years and after Hohmann iae buddy Thompson became president. He is an auction near here in town and real character total character and after him Charlie Roland became president of the roundtable. And of course, we know Charlie Charlie's hundred one year years old this month. He was president from nineteen eighty four until nineteen ninety four and Charlie like Bill Wylie came from east, Tennessee, bell Wiley, love Charlie roll out. He middle issue. But Charlie got his PHD at LSU after getting a master's degree at Vanderbilt, but. Charlie taught at Tulane university. And then became professor of history at the university of Kentucky, and he was above the last of a group of historians at the university all of whom were connected with around table who were among the greatest southern historians in America, one of one of the greatest departments of southern history and in the country and Charlie held forth at the roundtable for for ten years, and Charlie is still is a character. But he carried that torch on through until nineteen ninety four and then James clutter became president.
