  1. What I really liked was when Karen got home to Miles. They didn't put on a showy kissy exhibition for the camera, Miles just held on so tightly to Karen and then gently kissed her on her forehead. It was so genuine compared to most of the other couples.
  2. Yes, and Rachel Maddow has been talking about it and reporting on it for years.
  3. He's bragged since the very beginning, on the show where they make their picks who is going to be matched, and many times since then that he owns those houses free and clear and no bank is involved. He's just being a turd about letting Rachel make a decision about going to Europe.

    Are you signed up with TSN Direct? It's free and usually for the tennis tournaments they have rights for they have coverage of several other courts besides the one or two they're airing. I must admit I haven't looked to see what they have for Indian Wells because this year IW isn't much better than a 500 tourney. The competition is pretty poor to say the least and I'm not too interested. But give Direct a chance - I saw a couple of Canadian reporters talking about matches they had on tsn.ca so I assume those were the ones you could get on Direct. eta: You can get to TSN Direct by clicking
  5. Seems to me like Zack wants to rewatch it over and over and over again. He just won't let it go. Michaela has sincerely discussed it and apologized to him repeatedly but he's going to make her pay for it for the rest of her life. Yes, she behaved badly but at some point he has to let it go and get on with life. Zack is the guy with the obvious problem, not her.

    Plus she speaks fluent Mandarin which is going to make her a huge star in the other half of the world that the English media doesn't reach. I worry about someone so young and inexperienced dealing with the pressure that this enormous publicity is going to bring her.

    I'm not. Definitely not. The only reason I was cheering for Medvedev was because I wanted him to beat Djerk. He's served his purpose so now I can go back to being meh about him. :) I loved how bitter Fowler and the Mac Bros were at having to say 20 20 20. The sourness was so evident and I loved it!

    See, now THAT is historic. Hasn't been done before, at least in the open era. It is literally what the word means, not this nonsense about what Djerkovic is trying to do. The guy who has already done it twice is sitting in the stands watching for dawgs sake! For many reasons I hope Djerk falls flat on his face tomorrow.

    Djokovic has had the good fortune of playing half of his career against aging and injured Roger and Rafa. There were a few years there in the middle when all three were relatively healthy and competitive but no one has ever had the luck that Djerk has had in not having any competition from the generations coming up behind him. Sometimes there is a gap of a few years before a generation starts producing some slam winning stars but we've gone through about three rotations of new players and they still can't begin to compete as this USO is proving. Roger did have a couple of easy years at the beg

    I know what you mean. As a Canadian I sort of root for her but there's not a lot of conviction behind my cheering. First off, there's just something screwy about all her injuries and her missing months on end from the tour. She's been like that for many years having had back injuries and whatnot since her early teens. Normally, I'd feel sorry for a young girl with such bad luck to always be injured but something just seems wrong to me. And it would seem that her success has gone to her head. I read an article the other day about all the changes she's made in the last year or so. She's dit

    That's her fitness coach, not her dad/coach. Her dad had another commitment and couldn't/can't attend the USO. Maybe he'll be able to be there for her next momentous match. But yes, I agree, her fitness coach should sit his ass. Amen. I've hated it ever since Stan Wawrinka got such laudatory press for getting the crowd all worked up. To me, they look pathetic, like they're begging for approval. I see Carlos Alvarez is doing the 'point finger at head' thing when he wins a good game, something else that annoys the hell out of me. If you're too stupid to know you have to think your way th
  12. Oh absolutely. Surely no one is naive enough to believe that actually happened, are they? They didn't even sound synchronized to the video.

    It's not just Evert going on and on about Djokovic, it's the whole damn crew! Everybody, all of the announcers and colour commies, were blathering endlessly about Djerk and his effort to make history. Pissed me right off how they kept telling the audience that everybody should be excited about him possibly setting a record. Well, I'm not excited in the least and no I don't want him to win. Plus, it isn't even a damn record!!!! Laver's already done it twice so what's the big deal about Djerk doing it again, albeit some 50 years later. Rafa's accomplishments on clay with his 13 FOs and 12 B

    I like Andy too and admire his grit in trying to play on a new hip but the whole scenario makes me just crazy at how awful the media coverage of tennis is these days. If a hobbled Andy can almost beat the no. 3 ranked player who is being touted as a possibly capable opponent for Djokovic, it's a pretty strong statement about how dreadful the younger generation of tennis players is. Djokovic isn't as terrific as the media plays him up to be! He has no opposition for gawd's sake! Older guys are injured and aging and younger players, several generations worth of them, have been horribly inept. I

    Rafa will never have surgery. He's too terrified of doctors and needles and whatnot. Rather ironic considering all the various injuries he's had. In spite of strains and sprains and torn tendons, the only surgery he's ever had is when he had his appendix removed and even then he tried to put that off and treat it with medication. I'm rather doubtful he'll ever be able to play top level tennis again but if he can't make it back, I'm glad his last outing was one that emphasized how adored he is by his fans.
