Re: Gilles Simon's Chat Thread

Hi.

Good luck to Gilles, I can't watch the matches in Indian Wells.. livestreams keep buffering and it's not televised (at least until the quarterfinals). It's been like this after the AO.

Anyway..

Eimear, Di and Ellen.. here's my answer as to why I also support Liverpool and your other questions.

Ellen asked me why I support Manchester United (a team that's far away) in the first place. I don't know, I just like to support foreign teams because they are pretty popular here, be it -hockey (Pittsburgh Penguins), basketball (San Antonio Spurs) , football (Man United), baseball (New York Mets). I do have local teams though but it's just basketball and football because we're not good in other sports. I blame my brother for getting me into sports . Back to Manchester United, I started to support them because of Beckham. And I noticed Beckham because of Posh Spice.. back in 1999, I was looking at a magazine article of the Spice Girls and I read that Victoria's boyfriend was David Beckham.. and there's a picture of him on the magazine. I thought he was cute, so I've decided to do a research about him and I learned that he's in a club called Manchester United. I watched their game and I was an instant fan .

Since then, I've supported the England national team (always my favorite) in the World Cup and Euro Cup, I also support other countries because of the Manchester United players. My first favorite in Manchester United was Beckham (of course ), followed by Ruud and now it's Cristiano. But I love all of players in that club. I love them too much that I even cry when they lose a very important match.

As for liking Liverpool, it started with Michael Owen, he was my crush before when he was in Liverpool and now it's Gerrard and Torres . Actually, I like other teams from English Premier League too like Chelsea for example . I don't really care for the rivalries , I just love them all.. especially those who play for the England team. We have something like that here too.. two basketball teams, the fans hate the opponents w/ a passion. But that doesn't stop me from supporting both teams.

Another thing, I barely read articles regarding what's happening to the players off the pitch, so most of the time I'm clueless as to why people hate player A.

btw - I like your new avatar Ichigo is a badass.

I went to the US v. SUI DC tie with my sister this past weekend and talked her into dressing nice with me one day. For my compromise, I agreed to do 'black t-shirt' day. I'm more of a dress up type and she's a black t-shirt type. Since I didn't own a black t-shirt, I had to buy one. You'd be impressed because I picked out a Bleach t-shirt (it's the Ichigo eyes one). I wore it on the third day of the tie. A few people actually came up to me and complimented me on the shirt. I guess it was a good choice.
I see. As I've mentioned above, I haven't been able to watch tennis that much ever since the AO. Good thing there's American Idol and tv series such as Battlestar Galactica to make up for it.

Ichigo is really a cool badass guy. Hehe. I love how rough he is at times but cares so much for his friends that it becomes a hindrance during a battle.

Aww, I would like to see that t shirt.. that sounds cool.

Manchester United - Inter Milan - Porto

Re: Gilles Simon's Chat Thread

I was going to try to sleep between Andy's and Gillou's matches... but I've decided to get fired up instead. So here's a tune to fire us up for Ali's prematch tune
