indian wells sightings: bud collins chats with charlie pasarell

Bud Collins and Charlie Pasarell in Indian Wells 2008

Unfortunately giving fodder for the argument that we don’t care about our elders (or the old), there was a sparse crowd at this casual chat between Bud Collins and Charlie Pasarell on the first weekend of the Pacific Life Open. (Pasarell, a former pro, is the tournament’s ATP director.)

As expected, Bud was in full regalia: green polo under a pink knit sweater paired with a pair of coral blue pants with big teal polka dots. Yowza.

For my fellow triviaphiles: The newest edition of The Bud Collins History of Tennis: An Authoritative Encyclopedia and Record Book will drop on June 1. You can pre-order if you wish.
