Tennizen Destroys Rafa's Chances Of Reaching Uso Final

I think we should have a weekly poll.

This week's poll poses a very important question - Who Should Start the USO Thread?

Now, Hema's recent record has been outstanding. But I want us all to think carefully about this. Her success has given ourselves (and clearly Rafa ) great confidence. Do we really think Rafa has a shot at the USO crown, given the number of matches he has played, and how desperate he must be to get back to Mallorca? Imagine if Hema starts the thread and Rafa loses early. It was be a terrible blow to the forum.

Should we hold off and not have Hema start a thread until .. Madrid? (or my preference, AO)

So Hema? Or someone else?

Thoughts and votes, please.

I'm not including an MTF poll in this thread, because they can be contaminated by non-Nadal fans. This way I can just discount anyone that I feel doesn't deserve a vote

Interesting poll I am of the same opinion as you I think someone else must shoulder the responsibility of the USO thread That way my record will also be untarnished

Re: Weekly Poll - Who Should Start The USO Thread?

What is this? I thought Hema had promised to start the US Open thread if Rafito won Wimbledon. Linda's arguments have no basis whatsoever. RG-Wimbledon-Olympics. You do not change a winning strategy.

As the unofficial (for the moment) mod of this forum I cannot let this happen. I have to think of the well-being of all members in this forum. Let's examine the possible losing scenarios:

- Hema does not start the thread and Rafito loses: everyone will blame her (and with good reason!), she will be devastated and people will be pulling their hair off asking "WHYYYYYYYY? " RESULT: Hema will not be allowed to start tournament threads again; the whole Nadal forum in uproar; Rafa doesn't win another tournament until clay season.

- Hema starts the thread and Rafito loses: understandable Hema did her best but not even her magic is enough for the fast courts of Flushing Meadows. Better luck at the AO.

Re: Weekly Poll - Who Should Start The USO Thread?

Uhmmm, but if Hema wants to take some time off MTF, incl. during the USO... maybe indeed someone else should start the USO thread? And well, to be honest, even superhumans like Rafa cannot win EVERYTHING, he needs a break. So I guess it doesn't really matter much who will start the thread.

Hema please

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Linda, I think Metis has a point here. Hema PROMISED to make the US Open thread if Rafa won Wimbledon. Rafa did his part, now it's Hema's turn.

HEMA.

Re: Weekly Poll - Who Should Start The USO Thread?

Thanks everyone for the vote of confidence. I feel honored

Adam I don't think starting new threads other than in GM gets you v-cash

If the vote is in favor of me, I will start the USO thread but I have a feeling this is where my streak will end
