If i watch a tape i watch it to see "how'd he lose?" or "How'd he win"?

Or is it just me? I always look ahead when i read a book... :thinks:
LOL. I try to avoid any information source as much as possible when I tape a match. Last week I taped Amelie vs Kim in the morning after i saw the first set, I left school in the beginning of the afternoon and had to go to the courthouse and wanted to watch the rest in the evening. So i did my best not to listen to the radio in the bus, cuz i really didn't want to know !
Everytime I tape a match and plan to watch it later I like to watch it as if it were live.
Except maybe when it's a Marat match. It's such a rollercoaster that it's good for my brain and my heart to know the score already

Oh you're totally like me!!!! I wanna know the result when I'm watching tape delay, especially with Marat matches.
And I also look ahead when I read a book.

I only do it when I read a book. I'm reading "El retorno del profesor de baile" (Danslärarens återkomst, 2000) by Henning Mankell and I haven't looked ahead yet. I can't believe it!!!

It spoils the fun only if it's a bad book. Stop reading crap.
In a good book it often makes it more interesting.
Remember how right in the start of the movie "American Beauty" the hero tells us that he will die in a month? That kept torturing me though out...

I read quite a few (Russian) books where the prologue included the climax... I love those.

Anastasia Myskina, Marat Safin thank you.
