Re: How to be a tennis fan?

Pretty simple being a tennis fan and a sports fan in general with how much access we have to it. If not on tv, the internet, mobile/cell phones etc.. The major problem nowadays is wondering which match to watch when loads of tournaments are going on at once. But I've always felt comfortable watching tennis as a neutral fan, though supporting one is great, at times you just want the player you're a fan of to go through so much, you forget about the entertainment, which doesn't happen with neutral matches.

Just be glad we're tennis fans in this day and age, can't imagine how tough it was to watch most tournaments in the 70s and 80s and before. Even some of the big tournaments.. I assume challengers were simply inaccessibly to tennis fans back then, bar going to the matches.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
