Let’s file this under the weirdest news of the week.
Seven-time grand-slam champ. Super brat of the tennis world in the early 80’s. NBC tennis commentator. Poster boy in my high school locker. Yes. John McEnroe performed Nirvana’s Territorial Pissings on Sunday at a small club in Amagansett, New York.
So maybe it’s not that shocking since he is married to Patty Smyth, former lead singer of Scandal (not to be confused with Patti Smith). Smythe played a set that included the bit hit, The Warrior. The weird part of the story was Mac was joined on stage by NY Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist. In the crowd? SNL creator Lorne Michaels. Maybe he was thinking of a future sketch?
Here’s the video!
