Thumbs up Due to time constraints, NBC will not be able to show you Andy Roddick!



No, this is not something TF dreamt up. Those words were actually uttered by Jimmy Roberts

Who would have thunk it: 3 hours of coverage with Fed and Ivo, Hewitt and Moya!

Who bribed the tournament sponsors in putting Roddick 3rd so that American television wouldn't show him

To whomever it was (Elton John???) I say

Okay, so this is a weekday morning when no one but housewives and a (temporarily unemployed) TF are watching...

Thanks NBC

Re: Due to time constraints, NBC will not be able to show you Andy Roddick!

hee hee...well i'm in paradise right now with blocked out ESPN coverage so it's just as well. i hope Popp spares us the agony of further exposure to Duckboy. i am like soooo allergic now.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Due to time constraints, NBC will not be able to show you Andy Roddick!

lol TF...

well, i dont get it, will ESPN show the match then--delayed? I assumed NBC would show the match and then of course they wouldnt have enough time to finish since Days of Our lives is soo important, thus ESPN would pick-up from there... oh well,

i enjoy watching live scores anyway--less stress

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Re: Due to time constraints, NBC will not be able to show you Andy Roddick!

Good! I'm taping ESPN anyways, where the Roddick match will be shown.

Gooooo Tim! You gotta beat the Flipper.

Too bad Marat had to crash out in the first round, otherwise maybe we'd be seeing some of his matches, right TF? *rub, rub*

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Well, NBC coverage just ended as Flip was getting drummed by Henman in the first, but I have to the quality coverage, the best coverage since uh, the US Open...but nothing like HBO's all-day live tennis coverage of yesteryear...

Haha... HBO coverage was simply splendorful. I remember I was forced to take these swim classes taught by this evil like, war vet or something. He was so mean, and I was so young and I would cry everyday, and then come home to HBO coverage of Wimbly--it was therapeutic. HBO coverage was absolutely heavenly

and for the anti-Ducks, Roddick didnt exist during the reign of HBO, pre-Roddick, he was still in his diapers...

NBC continues the live coverage in West coast so in PT regiion, NBC showed Roddick vs Popp and now, Henman vs Flip while my scheduled coverage by ESPN turned out to be poker

that's true but it's such an annoying waste of time and tape.

Hmmmm my tv came with a remote control. Oddly enough, it lets me change the channel and turn the power off if there's something I don't want to watch. I feel so badly for you all if your TVs didn't come with such a lovely feature
