Photo and autograph courtesy of G’s really really really large photo and autograph collection.
Tennis legend and the inspiration behind Elton John’s wonderful song “Philadelphia Freedom,” Billie Jean King was born today, November 22. I’ve met Billie Jean King on numerous occasions and she’s so nice! As you can see from the above photo, she told me to “Go for it!” I’m doing just that! Billie Jean King, thanks again for your words of wisdom, for being so cool and for being one of the best tennis players of all time! Happy birthday!
