The Roddick "Dog and Pony Show"

I was struck by the term "dog and pony show" in an adjacent posting. It seems to me that ever since Andy Roddick has been less than dominant on the tennis courts, we hear about almost everything but tennis in the related forums and web sites. Is it a diversionary tactic? We're not even told if he's practicing or goofing off although much of the publicity suggests the latter. At least we know Federer is playing good tennis.

Re: The Roddick "Dog and Pony Show"

Why do you CARE? Seriously, euroka, you must have something better to do. Seems like you talk about Andy more than most of his fans do!

You see, Roddick fans already know everything about tennis. It would be like discussing multiplication tables.

I'd rather talk about Federer who actually plays great tennis.

Re: The Roddick "Dog and Pony Show"

Then why do you always show up in the Andy forum? Federer has his own forum where you can salivate over his tennis there.

And just doing a quick flip through your posts shows about half of them commenting on Roddick or climbing up on your pedestal to chastise his fans, so you obviously don't prefer to talk about the Fed.

Good point.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
