Cleanup Notice[edit]

Coming upon this article for the first time, the one problem with it just seems that it needs to have improved formatting to actually make it more streamline and understandable. Currently, it seems to just be two/three paragraphs which could be divided into sections to make more sense and give a more informative style, in addition to possibly adding a little more information if needed.

Anecdote makes no sense[edit]

The anecdote about the most awkward moment is hard to follow as it stands- could someone familiar with the incident rewrite it? -66.226.105.98 03:58, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

That would be this, which I have removed to talk: as not important (RJFJR (talk) 23:01, 22 March 2008 (UTC))

Perhaps the show's most awkward moment came in its third week. Upon being introduced for the July 26, 2004, episode, McEnroe rode onto the set on a bicycle, wearing a yellow jersey, which he wore for the entire show, in tribute to American cyclist Lance Armstrong, who a day earlier won his record-breaking sixth straight Tour de France. Fugelsang was nowhere to be seen, as he had been in Los Angeles for the weekend doing promotional work for the show. He was supposed to have returned for the July 27 show, but just as Fugelsang's flight was getting ready for takeoff, it was called back to its gate because of bad weather, and so Fugelsang missed the taping. Later that night, McEnroe went on CBS' Late Show with David Letterman, and complained about Fugelsang missing the show. Letterman told McEnroe that Fugelsang should've been fired, but McEnroe said he believed in second chances. The next night, July 28, Fugelsang returned, and mentioned McEnroe's comments to Letterman. Rather, and quite genuinely, concerned, Fugelsang asked if he was fired, to which McEnroe told him he wasn't. The clip from Letterman was then played, and after it finished, Fugelsang looked at McEnroe, and asked, "Do you hold onto anger?" McEnroe said nothing, and the show went into a commercial break, only to come back with the two shaking hands and smiling.


Removed[edit]

I also removed this because it didn't 'flow' well in the prose: (RJFJR (talk) 23:01, 22 March 2008 (UTC))

Many top-notch celebrities like Will Ferrell (the show's first-ever guest), conservative pundit Ann Coulter, and actor Sean Astin were interviewed by McEnroe.
