Metis, I you if you can play that sort of a thing.

WG, I am not a chemical engineer but my husband is one.

Speaking of talented musicians, this guy took the Western Mandolin and added a string to it to make it produce sounds in the Indian tradition. He started playing the instrument at 5

I don't think the quote is really all that arrogant. It's just damn insulting.

By the way, where did the quote come from? Is there a thread on MTF? Or did Scoobs just dream it up? It's funny in any event.

I haven't had time to read any of that stuff on GM so I didn't get the joke.

Anyway, you don't really want Murray concentrating on improving his game, do you?

There, there now Like Rogi you probably still have a few good quoting runs left in you.

i was tempted to follow up your GM post with "i think the right answer should have been "i'll worry about my form and you can ask the others about their favorites" but i refrained

Thanks for the link, Chris (< that still feels weird). The quote is a lot funnier as straight text, though.

I still don't see Federer losing before the final. A Muzzerer final would not surprise me in the slightest.

It's insulting AND arrogant I wouldn't mind it if it was coming from some legend of the game rather than some spoilt kid...
