Re: Houston Re-ducks

awwwwww Naldo

the word "redux" means like, returned or repeated... tangy's just making a play on that (like "Houston again" or "Houston revisited" etc. playing with 'duck') Ingenious!

Re: Houston Re-ducks

Er, I just checked ESPN's TV schedule and I don't see TMC Houston listed anywhere. Is it not being televised this year? Say it ain't so!

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ...

Re: Houston Re-ducks

It's being televised! What ESPN schedule were you looking at? LoL Some live, some taped, but we've getting almost all the singles RR matches, the SFs and the final. I forget the exact schedule so let me find it

Btw, the way the seedings worked out, Andy will face either Hewitt or Safin, either Moya or Coria, and either Henman or Gaudio.

There are about a zillion ways Andy or Marat or Lleyton could all end up at #2, so someone else is gonna have to do all the math lmao

Re: Houston Re-ducks

Thanks again Debs For some reason I had it in my brain that TMC started on Nov. 9. Now I see that I'm a week ahead of the schedule.

I can't believe it's November already. Where did the year go?
