US Viewers... Write ESPN!

They're obviously going to show both of Agassi's matches tomorrow and not show any of Nadal's semifinal match.

This is ridiculous. Write them and request they come on early to show Nadal's match as well!

How to be an MTF tard, Lesson #3.

"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."

You're just pissy that your little pinup lost in the first round. Go bother someone else.

A case of the blind mocking the blind, I'm afraid.

I'm not a US viewer, but even I can do what's suggested in the title of this thread. It's only four letters, quite a simple acronym. ESPN.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

I'm getting really sick of the fact that people on this board have to be smart asses all of the time.

Re: US Viewers... Write ESPN!

as if a Spanish channel would ever show Agassi's match over Rafa's...get a clue. This is ESPN...which is American, which means Agassi.

Nah, I'm not really being a smart ass. Your title is perfectly correct within the rules of American grammar, I just find that grammar to be a little daft... hence my post. The sentiment of the thread is certainly a legitimate one.

Re: US Viewers... Write ESPN!

Look, seriously. If the thread doesn't apply to you or you aren't interested in the Nadal match, whatever. But don't tell me what to do. I don't have the time or interest to bother with any of you three anymore, so you're all going on ignore. Try and have as nice a life as is possible for you.

Re: US Viewers... Write ESPN!

Don't worry, I'll survive. I admit it, the suicide pills were out on the desk for a moment at the thought of being on your ignore list, but I found the strength to cope from somewhere.

Re: US Viewers... Write ESPN!

No dear, this isn't bitching. It's an attempt to change their minds on what they show.

Thanks for reminding me to put you on my ignore list as well. I'd tell you to have a nice life as well, but I know that won't happen.

Re: US Viewers... Write ESPN!

Re: US Viewers... Write ESPN!

Is there anyone on MTF who isn't on KBF's ignore list, do you reckon? The Federer, Roddick and Agassi fanbases must certainly be out of the question...

Re: US Viewers... Write ESPN!

listen, I'm really excited Rafa's doing well...but if you caught the Gaudio/Agassi match, it was pretty awesome. If the level of play is that good again tomorrow, I'd rather watch that.

And in case you didn't notice, ESPN has been practically been ESPNadal all week too. They really haven't neglected Nadal at all, and everytime they show him (which has been almost all his matches), all the commentators talk about is how amazing he is. I give the channel credit for doing its best and for balancing what its viewers with good tennis too.

Good effort on this thread though.
