Did John McEnroe soothe his post-CNBC bruised ego by writing a biting, tongue-in-cheek drama for the New York stage titled A Brilliant Play by John McEnroe? No. But I thought for a millisecond that he might have, when I saw an e-mail in my inbox with the subject line “A Brilliant Play by John McEnroe serves up a discount!!!” It turns out to be a comedy about John McEnroe, not by John McEnroe. False advertising. How they can get away with this is anyone’s guess. This borders on spam, in my opinion. Let’s hope it sucks as much as the talk show did.
