Tennis icon Bud Collins dies at 86

Bud Collins, who wrote his way into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, died on Friday. He was 86.

Famous for his deep love of the game, and for his colorful and sometimes outlandish mode of dress, Collins was a writer for The Boston Globe and, beginning in 1968, an analyst for CBS and NBC. He helped popularize an under-the-radar sport for the emerging baby boomer generation.
