Because I Can Post Stuff Whenever I Want

Most of the things in this list make me very happy.

Here are some other things that make me very happy.

Tour de France: Celebrating Pedal Dancing Since 1903

tour de france on versus

Been watching the Tour de France religiously this past week. Figured it was a good year to start considering I missed 7 good ones. Don’t know anybody who watches cycling and didn’t think much of the viewability of the sport, but this stuff is actually really good. Reasons to watch:

  1. overly excited Versus commentators
  2. Contador and Armstrong getting real sassy
  3. great background TV
  4. helmets

Roger Federer: Love Fifteen

Epic people celebrating an epic man in a sweet video. To send an insignificant-by-comparison message to Roger, visit Nike Tennis. Wish this video was brought to my attention before the last post. Also wish I came up with the phrase ‘Love Fifteen’.

Roger Federer: GOAT

Sunday at Wimbledon produced some amazing numbers: 77 aces, 77 games, 30-game fifth set, 37 holds of serve, and at least 49 grand slam singles titles in attendance (Bjorn Borg, Pete Sampras, Rod Laver, John McEnroe, Boris Becker).

After 5-7, 7-6, 7-6, 3-6, 16-14, the world has witnessed the most astounding number: 15 grand slam single titles. Roger Federer is now without a doubt the best to have ever played the game.

And props to Andy Roddick for building a terrifying game around that serve. He is finally a player that I can imagine supporting, and this is officially Roddick’s second coming – just in time for Flushing Meadows.

Confederations Cup

I admit I’m not much of a soccer fan, but as an enthusiast and a lover of America, I am extremely proud of the rainmaking that the US men are conjuring in South Africa. After a 3-0 win over Egypt and a huge upset over #1 ranked Spain, the US is set to face Brazil in the finals this Sunday.

Dinara Safina Could Destroy Me
