I realized what a boring sport it actually is. Was surfing the Aussie
Open.

Pro sports is pretty dull actually. Millionaires playing for
billionaires who change teams and cities all the time. Basically
rooting for laundry.


zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


I wasted so much of my life following this shit.

Is Roger Pederast gonna make another quadrillion dollars this year ?
Wow, who cares ? zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I know huh ? Ok, will change the wording. Been looking for my old
distractions lately, and been disappointed.

Not sure if my fault, or if just suddenly realized that team sports no
longer interest me, or if last year was too heartbreaking a year.

Patriots (football) lost Super Bowl and perfect season in last 1:15
basically, Canada lost to Russia in 100th anniversay of IIHF (ice
hockey) in overtime, Alouettes lost the Grey Cup (football) , and
Federer barely lost to Nadal at Wimbledon in an epic squeaker in the
dark.

Since Henin retired and Federer lost his #1 position, tennis has lost
its lustre for me.

I hope i get it back, or something back. Couldn't bring myself to
watch a match in Melbourne to which I am usually glued every year.

I see it will be Roger and Rafa again ? Maybe i'll tape it, and if Fed
wins, will hope to regain interest later.

I usually love watching the Aussie Open in the coldest depths of
winter here. Makes me wanna call a travel agent until I realize I have
no money or freedom to go again.

Make sense ?

The weather here is record-breakingly hot. The train system is in trouble
because of buckled rails. This is not the time to visit. We are, of
course, perfect the rest of the year.

I think tennis is very exciting to watch. It's much better than crap
like baseball and american football.

Quite not to death, sadly ;-)
Sampras lost turned whiskey into masochist's behaviour.
He dislike most of common ground of tennis today (2HBH, bumrooting),
but keeps on watching matches!
And trashing the last of the mohicans (I mean, the last of the slam
winning mohican) who played the least far from his idol: great serve,
good volleys (even if I had to say that Federer is not playing near
his prime "net level" for ages), beautifull 1HBH (yet fragile when
facing huge topspinners, even more fragile when facing lefty
heavyweihgt topspinner).
Humankind is full of surprises (bad ones, too often)... Yet I still
have hopes!

Share & Enjoy,
Manolo

Professional tennis is kind of like a soap opera to me, keeping an eye
on the careers of particular players, perhaps a local making a career
defining Slam Quarter Final, or watching Federer's historic run etc. I
don't want to watch each and every match, that's just tennis, I'd
rather be out there myself.

But watching soap operas is even more boring. Except Dallas.

Great post. If you don't get a response in thirty minutes to an anti-tennis
post in a tennis newsgroup then change the wording and try again.

He should contact Whisper as they share the same opinion. Whisper has
been bored to death since Sampras retired.
