Don't tell Councilman Butler about this one....At Wimbledon, they are cracking down on grunts from the players by using sound meters. Apparently, the audible manifestation of physical exertion known as a "grunt" is offending someone. Maybe it has some sexual connotation that conflicts with family enjoyment of the match.
Biggest offender....French Open winner and former Russian, Maria Sharapova. There is nothing worse than a gorgeous, six foot two woman grunting while sweating out a match in front of England's la-de-dahs.
