So yeah there's my update on tennis. I wish I could get this stuff on local stations so I didn't have to deal with break up and buffering. Sucks to be a dialup user sometimes. Especially since the last two are in England. The English commentary promises a lot.
Yeah, I'm kind of a rooky to the whole following of Tennis, but some of the players have been a source of fascination for me over the years, and whenever I can, I try to catch maches on TV. Again, not having cable makes it hard.

Anyway, now that I feel a bit better for the tennis kick, I suppose I'll go find something else to do until I need to appologize for not giving my dad a message that was actually rather important as it had to do with relatives flying in from a trip.
