The Re-Match!

Marat Safin and Roger Federer are set to meet in the third round of the Australia Open, a re-match of their EPIC 2005 semi-final! I can't wait! Vamos, Marat!

In other Aussie Open news:
1) Robby Ginepri unfortunately lost in the first round to Tomas Berdych. But, Gineps is still in the tourney on the dubz side, partnering with none other than Vince Spadea?!?

2) AND, what the hell is going on with Rafa Nadal's tennis ensemble?!?!? His shirt HAS SLEEVES! It's ungodly! Unless his guns are showing in a tight-fitting sleeveless shirt, I almost don't want to watch him play! Are you with me, Lady Lorelei?

The Australian Open starts today (well, it's already tomorrow there)! Tune into ESPN2 (at 4pm PST) to check out early round action.

BTW, Robby Ginperi has drawn Tomas Berdych (ouch!), and Marat Safin meets Ivan Navarro (don't know him).

The Conchords!

The second season of the FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS starts back up tonight (at 10pm on HBO)!! I know the premiere episode has been available online for a little bit now, but I wanted to wait and watch it properly on the premiere night.
I love those fellaz, who according to the a print-ad I just saw are BORN TO FOLK!

Bravo, Chelsea!

2 goals in 2 minutes; that's the way to FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!

Sorry to brag, but CHECK ME OUT!! My pic with Robby Ginepri is the ATP World Tour Insider's FAN PHOTO OF THE WEEK! I'm SO excited and honored!

(Preesh Photo Credit: Lady Lorelei and Mc Fresh)

Speaking of Robby, he unfortunately recently lost to fellow American, John Isner, in the 2nd round of the Heineken Open in New Zealand. But, the Aussie Open is just around the corner, and I can't wait!

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Come on, Chelsea!

Chelsea takes on Southend United again today (on FSC at noon PST) in FA Cup action. Let's hope Chelsea doesn't embarrass themselves and actually beats a club that are over 50 spots below them!

New DVD Tuesday

This movie looks awful, but it's tennis related. I might rent it.

Sunday, January 11, 2009

Oh, Chelsea...

I love Chelsea FC so SO much, but after today's 3-0 spanking by Manchester United, I've given up almost all hope for the 2008-09 EPL title. In fact, any trophy would be nice for us at this point, but I'm honestly bracing myself for a minor downward spiral.

P.S. The Golden Globes are on NBC tonight. But, due to Chelsea's loss and some other reasons, I'm not sure if I have much energy to watch though...

Come on, Chelsea!

There's a HUGE game on today. Chelsea takes on Manchester United (on FSC at 8am PST)!

Not the face!

Marat Safin was apparently involved in a brawl (which he won; thank you!) in Moscow recently that left him with 2 black eyes. But, the bruises didn't stop him from flying to Australia to play in the Hopman Cup with his sister, Dinara.
Oh, Marat; you will forever be the beautiful bad boy...

Hey now! What a way to start the tennis season!

Friday Movie Review

My pals Bill, John and I watched 2 movies today: REVOLUTIONARY ROAD and THE WRESTLER. Although they seem like completely different movies, my review for both is actually one in the same:

The acting, the direction, and the music (the songs not the score) were really great, but overall the movie was really depressing and negative and left me with a headache.

Happy New Year!

I wish you all the best! Here's to more shenanigans in '09!

P.S. Pro tennis is starting back up (I'm a little verklempt)!
