Re: Wimbledon security detained a journalist with a knife

Translation .. google + few corrections

Wimbledon security arrested an credited journalist when he tried to pass a "great knife" into the tournament

LONDON (EFE) -- Wimbledon security employees arrested an credited journalist when he tried to strain in the match a "great knife" that took within his bag.

A police spokesman confirmed they stopped the subject Wednesday at night, with accreditation of press, when he tried to enter the All England Club through door 13 and when the security employees reviewed their properties.

The man alleged that he needed this knife "to work", excuse that was not accepted, so they took him to a local police station to be interrogated.

Later, the police left him in freedom, after admonishing it.

Great excuse to carry a deadly weapon. Right up there with "my dog ate my homework."

Scary I wonder what his intentions were.

NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->

Unfortunately this reminds me of April 30, 1993.

You remember my eleventh birthday?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Wimbledon security detained a journalist with a knife

was it Damir?

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: Wimbledon security detained a journalist with a knife

A lot of people are just strange. Maybe he didn't realize it would cause a problem going at Wimbledon with the knife. He might use his knife to cut paper.

I think we've proved more than once than a lot of journalists are dumb.
