Re: How much will you watch the US Open 2015 ?

I'll see about as much as I see of the other slams, which isn't much. Play starts at 11am (my time zone, too) and I work until 6pm during the week, so I guess I got the weekends to see matches.

Re: Another day in America: two journalists killed live on air

This guy was obviously mentally ill. I think if he didn't get a gun (or two, as I read in the news), he would've run them down in a car or done something else. I wonder if his family knew he had...

Re: Another day in America: two journalists killed live on air

I was following this closely at work while they were trying to find the suspect, waiting for them to put us on lockdown (some of the school districts actually did go on lockdown throughout the day)....

Re: Cincinatti QF: [3] A.Murray def. [12] R.Gasquet 4-6 6-1 6-4

I was at this match and it was so damn hot, I can't even remember the match. Seriously, it was like sitting on the surface of the sun. I've been to some really hot, humid matches in Washington, but...

Re: Kokkinakis and Harrison nearly come to blows, have to be separated by Lahyani

This is my video. Hard to hear what is said at net, but you finally see and hear the ending. Both players were instigators IMO.

Re: Kokkinakis and Harrison nearly come to blows, have to be separated by Lahyani

I just ordered a laptop from store near my hotel, will pick it up in a couple of hours and see if I can get the videos up tonight. My camera has a good microphone on it, so I hope I got better sound...

Oh, this was a match well worth waiting for the marathon girls match before it. We were going to leave at the end of the first set, were walking towards end of our row when it started, I got the end...

Re: Where would Djokovic be if he hadn't found and fixed his gluten problem?

Stop calling it a "gluten allergy". That is NOT correct terminology. He has "non-celiac gluten sensitivity". There are people with a gluten allergy, but they respond with an anaphalactic type of...

Re: Del Potro to have surgery again!

I also agree that he pushed himself to come back sooner than he should have, pain is a symptom something isn't right and you shouldn't keep doing whatever is causing that pain. I know the doctor that...

Re: Live streams

Ugh, once ESPN switched to Tennis Channel, all the streams but Azarenka's match on ESPN3 got cut off. Since I am forced to have Comcast as my cable provider, I cannot get Tennis Everywhere and would...

Re: Kyrgios nose bleeds - a side effect of something more sinister? (Serious thread)

When my blood pressure gets too high (especially before I had heart surgery due to a heart defect), I get nosebleeds. When it's allergy season (like now), I get nosebleeds. When I'm in a dry climate,...

Re: What dish do you make the best of the world?

My niece says I make the best grilled cheese. I used to make awesome Reese cup brownies, but I don't make that anymore since my kitchen is now gluten free (damn you celiac disease!). I used to be...

Re: Ekaterina Bychkova : "David Ferrer smokes and he is not the only one"

Re: Are you happy where you live?

No. I have lived here 20 years and thought I would only live here 5 years (just to get the retirement benefits) then move on. I have horrible seasonal allergies to the plants around here, it's too...

Re: Black Friday shopping?!

Every single time I've done Black Friday, I've never seen a fight. I've seen some shoving to get to an item that was sitting out, but not any actual punching or even yelling at each other. The...

Re: Girls: How important is a guy's height to you?

As a female, I like guys at least a few inches taller than me (I'm 5'7"), but prefer them well over 6foot tall. Of course, that probably comes from the men in my family being very tall, so I saw...

Re: If you celebrate Halloween, what is your costume going to be?

I'm going to be a mad scientist. Oh nevermind, that's what I do at work every day. We can't dress up. Stupid dress code.
