Re: 'Drinking till we pass out' chat thread

I see the Serbs are out in full force in the Tipsarevic match, having played only 2 games and they are already screaming like maniacs

Jess at least maybe in the end it was a good practice since you are a journalist...


Janko... Janko's brother...

The Serbian fans are getting rowdy already They are probably the only ones left in the stadium after Serena's match .

Nah, too be honest I want it to be Rafa vs. Roger so I can bet on Rafa, he will cream special Ed Rog.

I would never trust Berdych in a final of a event like Miami.

Is it just me or is Davy looking handsomer than ever in that outfit?

I may have the degree and I like to write, but I don't do anything with it. I'm kind of a moron

I double majored in magazine journalism and US History (20th century), but my senior year I had a moment of clarity when I realized that I didn't want to be a journalist because although I can write, I suck (really really suck) at interviewing. So my original plan was to then use my history degree, get a masters in education, and be a history teacher. I took the tests, applied to grad school, and then had another moment of clarity where I realized (since my mother is a teacher) that to put up with being a teacher, you have to really really WANT to be a teacher, so I decided against that, and just got a job to figure out what I wanted to do with my life (I do love history though )

So I'm the manager of a clothing store, working every day in a job that does not use one single minute of my education. *sigh* I'm sure my grandmother is rolling in her grave knowing that she spent $160,000 on tuition for no reason. But I hope to go back to school fairly soon though... I *think* I've decided that I want to study business and focus on marketing... but we'll see

But yes after all that, no I don't write. I had liked writing for Novak's site just as a hobby. It made me feel like my degree wasn't a COMPLETE waste of time (just a small waste) but then those jerks took that away from me!

I've been thinking about getting back into it though... it'd be fun to do a little bit of it here and there I was thinking of starting a blog of some sort some day though

I haven't even looked at Davy. I'm too mesmerized by the man on the other side of the net

The WTA made a huge blunder when they tried to market the "beauty line" of their business, back to the days of Kournikova and the pictures of Myskina naked over a horse Now they are left with a shit product (the tennis that is) and they cannot compete in the beauty business with the "beauty" competitors. But it would be funny to imagine marketing a potential Kuznetsova-Zvonareva final.

In 2007 the webmaster decided to bring 2 other people on board to write as well, and that was fine with me, and we kind of rotated who would write. Finally it's the USO final and it is my duty to write the review, and I write the whole thing up during the match so that afterwards it was ready to go up within 15 minutes. He posts it up that night, but when I wake up in the morning it's not there anymore. He replaced it with a generic article he found on Yahoo or AP or something. I then looked back and he did that all the time. Replace original writing with articles stolen from AP or Yahoo. That makes no sense.

Blah so I hate them. Waste of my time Back in 2006 there was a chat room on Novak's site and he used to come in and we'd have chats in the chat room and I moderated those too. Those were the good old days.

Re: 'Drinking till we pass out' chat thread

WTA If this match would have began at 21.00 CET I would have seen it on TV. Now they broadcast taped Berdich-Andreev and I'm starting to feel ill again
So bye all! I wonder what the outcome of Fed-Andy will be. Either way it will be utter embarassement for the loser because I still don't find Fed at his peak and if Andy cannot beat him now....

It isn't about needs
a) When you do so much sport, you're supposed to lose weight
b) When you do so much sport, you're supposed to gain some muscles (and don't give me the left arm excuse cause his right arm is only marginally better )

Guys, does my article seem a bit biased?
