But I like testoterone
. Srsly though, I don't have the stomach for seeing those skater falls, and I'm not even sure why. I mean, seeing those hits in hockey and falls in skiing (man, those really really hurt physically) and I'm okay, the moment I saw those figure skater falls on a jump, I want to change channel, can't watch anymore. I think I just feel too embarrassed for them
That must be it cause falls rarely hurt in figure skating and unlike in skiing, they are not really accidental either since the main point of the routines is to try the hardest jumps without falling (too often). ^_^
You are usually super-critical of him...nice to hear you don’t think the loss is that bad. Trying to remember the last time he blew a 5-1 lead, the only match came in mind was 2010 Stuttgart against Nieminen. Back then was his first clay tournament, he was still a mess on clay. But anyway, there's no good excuse to blow such a lead, just doesn't hurt much during off-season.
The only bad thing I can recall was Champion (TCP Captain) losing his hair by the minute and Gilles not giving a toss about it lol. I have to say I'm amongst the few who find easier to concentrate on a match on a computer screen than in live situation.
Parisians have better things to do than watching free tennis, apparently.
I rather suspect people assume that if they don't have to pay for something, it's either crap or a scam.
Oh Nat, any idea where Gilles went on vacation? Not trying to be nosy, just wonder why the hell he have to go to Buenos Aires to play an exo in December. Maybe he's vacationing in S.A.? I hope so, I mean, what a waste of time to go to the other side of the globe to play some meaningless thing
. Had he not get enough of South America this year already
. I'm not liking his off-season preparation schedule. He blew off that Open de Caen which he won last year to play this BA exo. Then again, Mika/PHM and Richie all play that Caen tournament, I can see why he doesn't want to go there at all
No, no idea. Gilles announced it on court after the TCP/Bondy tie without giving any detail, not his style. That said, it wouldn't surprise me if he went to SA, actually I already thought he did the SA swing earlier this year only for tourism related reasons.
I found strange to go in argentina except for money
I mean long trip jet lag while he could have play the exho in France that he won last year. Well I'm not convinced by this choice.
Slight allergy to Franco-French matches after the interclubs?
The money better be good for the trouble
. They play exo for money, can't blame them. But there could be some other factors too, that's why I think maybe he's also vacationing close by (it's summer there, why not). S.A. is a great place to travel to afterall.
Making money whilst vacationing, plus expenses covered. Sounds much better than Caen in the rain and cold.
