Small Breath

With the US Open starting yesterday, it was time for my quarterlyish prayer that everyone's favorite Serbian tennis player, Janko Tipsarevic, makes a good run of it this year. I didn't want to say anything before the tournament started as he hasn't delivered the goods much at the Slams this year. However, he did make it through Round 1 in the singles. Lost in Round 1 in the doubles, but I can live with that. I'm all about the Bryan Brothers in Doubles. Next up in Round 2 is Andy Roddick, who he has beaten in the past. I'll be watching tomorrow night with fingers crossed. If he makes it to and plays next Monday night, which session I have tickets to, I will be a very happy man.

Need reminders why he's my fav?

Away Again

Now that I've managed to completely remove all viruses that attacked my computer, it's time for my annual jaunt to Ocean City, NJ. Oh well. I have nearly all the remaining game show posts plotted out, so as soon I return, it will be a race to the finish! Enjoy the week, I'll be thinking of everyone as I'm overrun by thousands of screaming children.
