Anyone remember the media coverage on him in the late 70s/early 80s? It was insane!
He was such a dick and had a weasel face. Married famous women (Tatum O'Neal and Patty Smyth).
Patty Smyth was involved with RIchard Hell and had a kid. I don't think Tatum O'Neal ever remarried.
Spoiled fucking brat, I bet his marriage to Tatum was a rolling coaster!
JMac = Fugly troll.
He was a good tennis player with a bad temper. That match he did with Bjorn Borg is one of the greatest moments in sports history.
He also did copious lines of coke with Tatum.
He wasn't boring and didn't try to appear as everybody's all American to get endorsements. He was good and fun to watch. Temper tantrums and all.
McEnroe turned into quite the spoiled brat after reaching the top of the tennis heap, he dumped his longtime gf he'd had since college and fucked quite a number of model & starlets, many he used to share with competitors like Borg & Gerulaitis, before settling down with Tatum. Did a lot of drugs too mostly coke, as they all did.
His relationship with Tatum was based on their mutual love of partying and drugs which they both indulged in. She of course developed the addiction while he was mostly able to stop. His early days w/Smythe were also drug-fuelled and they were known to indulge in heavy partaking including snorting heroin - she's previously been hooked when with Hell and only stopped when she got pregnant with their daughter.
There was gossip that he'd had to be removed from a NY art-scene party because he was nearly out cold from all the smack he'd been snorting in the bathroom. This was the early 90s or so.
I've always wondered if he's hung. Anyone know?
He's Irish, so I think that answers your question, R7. I hated his tantrums, as they were so obviously fake and designed to psych out his opponents.
He is a great tennis commentator and I always wanted to soothe his tempter with my dick in his ass.
He was the subject matter of so many of my wank sessions when I was a young teenager, and have remained faithful ever since - I still find him vaguely sexy (as I do his ideal reincarnations in sneering on-court presences like Andy Murray). Go figure.
His daughter has a really neat fashion blog, and she seems sweet.
He wasn't attractive but he did have nice legs and a nice ass.
Just a very unpleasant guy.
Did Chrissie Evert fuck him and Jimmy Connors when she was married to that British queen?
My stepmother is a very repressed, uptight woman, but she loved skinny, angry, drugged-out John McEnroe and watched his every move.
Patty Smyth had Richard Hell? That bitch. He was a hot piece.
I remember when Tatum went to People Magazine and complained about McEnroe giving their son, who was around 15 at the time, a bare-assed spanking. Can you imagine him demonstrating his swing on your ass?!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
