Re: The 'thank f**k that crap Australian Open is over' chat thread

I think I am the only person who hates backetball.

Possibly because in 7th grade when we played, I was 4'6 and therefore sucked at it.

Haha you're not the only one.

I AM ON SUCH A SPORTS HIGH RIGHT NOW! First we win that game last night, Novak beats Stepanek in straight sets, and Bozoljac just won the first set TB against Feli.

DOES MY SPORT LIFE GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS?

Me too!...I hate basketball. Although I was always one of the taller girls, I still can't JUMP and shoot. It's always more like...shoot, then jump. Never works quite right.

And professionally, it's a league of thugs and hoodlums...ok, well not all of them, but that's certainly the image they seem so proud to portray. And the game itself...is ugly. All about the dunk. Time to raise the basket, gentlemen.

Rant off.

Mornin' (or afternoon or evenin', ) ya'll!

I love my girls.

Oh I hate professional basketball, but college basketball is still so lovely. Our game last night was a shoot off. I think there were only 2 dunks in the entire game. And with Carmelo Anthony in the pros, our team has been fairly well behaved the last 3 years

I used to be a college bball fan...but ended up covering the sport for our uni paper one year...and got thoroughly disgusted with it. Granted, that was back in the 80s when NCAA violations ran rampant...but I imagine they're still going on; they're just hiding/disguising them better. Girls, goods and gambling. All to be had if you could put the ball in the bucket. School? Class? Homework? What were those?

I love my girls.

Re: The 'thank f**k that crap Australian Open is over' chat thread

omg Ilija is going to beat Feli (*knocks on wood*)... this is nuts... the Serbians are invading the ATP

BTW Good morning everyone!!! I'm driving home after my classes today so I won't be on at all really until I get home tonight, probably 7-8 pm. So have a lovely day, enjoy the wonderful tennis going on in Zagreb.

Well, the number 1 reason Carmelo Anthony went to the pros after his freshman year at Syracuse.. anyone... anyone? That's right, he couldn't have stayed, he would have been academically ineligible. So regardless of if he wanted to wait a year to be the #1 draft pick, he couldn't have. He knew all along he was going to have that option though...

But... I do see an awful lot of our boys around campus, so they must go to at least SOME of their classes... I know the Big East is trying to crack down on that really hard.

Corrupted or not, I still think that some American Universities have cute hoodies.

I'm a big UConn fan, and love college hoops. But all this stuff going on for years and years is ruining the game. And the fact that most of them don't play for the full 4 years now, and go to the NBA after 2-3 years.

I used to love all sports, but now tennis and racing are about the only two I really watch as well as UConn.

Tennis fortunately isn't as corrupt as other sports. There are problems - and a bit of greed of the tournament directors, ATP, and players - but definitely not like in other sports.

And the greed in tennis for the players is more that the players are on their own - they aren't part of a team so they have to live in a bubble of just themselves and their own entourage just to survive. They don't make the money like in other sports (unless they are one of the very top players).

I don't like basketball. At least, I don't anymore since Jordan retired (the second time).

On hiatus, just because.
