Our TV overfloweth
It’s only Friday afternoon, Day 1 post Isaac, and our plate overflows with goodies:
Ryan Harrison, our American tennis Bryce Harper (long on talent and crazy pissed off temper), takes the third set against 2009 U.S. Open winner Juan Martin Del Potro, Argentine forehand maestro. Gonna lose, sure, but still.
Chelsea’s getting crunched 4-0 early in the second half of the UEFA Supercup against Atletico Madrid. Chelsea stinks. For all right thinking people, this is good. Announcers just said the Blues miss ex-England captain John Terry, who is suspended for being a racist. Or being stupid. More likely, both.
Mallory Burdette, NCAA runnerup from Stanford, just got popped one-and-one by Sharapova at the Open, her Welcome to the NFL moment. Back to Palo Alto and college tennis, minus 64G she would have been paid had she not circled “Amateur” on the entrance form.
Tiger shot 64 this morning. Rory’s under par this afternoon. Late summer outside of Boston! So what if Sox sux.
Yesterday, on his birthday, Andy Roddick announced his retirement. Tonight under the lights on Ashe, one more glory shot, this against Bernard Tomic. Wouldn’t it be great if …
Tomorrow morning, 7 a.m., FI qualifying on Speed Channel, the best cars on planet earth running the best track in Europe, Spa in Belgium.
OBB (Our Beloved Braves).
College football. Tons of it. State, Ole Miss and Southern. Topped off by Alabama-Michigan from Cowboys Stadium at 7 on ABC.
And Labor Day Weekend ribs, the Attack of the Big Green Egg.
It’s great to be us!
