RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

RIP to a good man and such a talented actor. Very sad news. I believe he died due to complications after his open heart surgery.

I was a big fan of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Re: R.I.P. James Avery aka Uncle Phil (1948-2014)

One of the finest shows to ever be shown on a television screen. Feel good whimsical laughs and yet could hit you in the gut harder than any other comedy. These moments of real emotion where primarily due to Avery and his interactions with Smith.
