When your father won't get off your backhand
Mary Pierce would have been number 13 seed at Wimbledon tennis but she withdrew because her father had punched someone at the French Open and was removed from her match for shouting. The Women's Tennis Council banned him from all subsequent events on the 1993 women's tour. He had not been banned previously as the Women's Tennis Association felt it was a family affair. Jim Pierce is an alias for ex-convict Bobby Glen Pearce who was conmmitted to mental hospitals for schizophrenic and paranoid tendencies.

Of God and Weinerville
Weiner's practice of an orthodox Jewish life brought one career in comedy to a close, but opened another. It too ended with the death of his son from Fanconi's anemia as Weiner's faith faltered. The puppet ideas Weiner used to entertain his son were expanded into the material for the children's show.
