Are you sir-ious?

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your VIews -

I’m a big fan of Andy Mur­ray and was even when most of the coun­try was cas­ti­gat­ing him as an anti-English choker. But to give him a knight­hood at this stage of his life is just ridicu­lous. Watch­ing TV sports re­porters say­ing things such as “Sir Andy Mur­ray had a hard­fought vic­tory over Ni­colás Al­ma­gro’’ just un­der­lines the fact. As John McEn­roe al­most said: “You can­not be sir-ious.’’ No sports star should be given an hon­our un­til their com­pet­i­tive ca­reer is over.
