This thread is what it is precisely because of fights, misunderstandings, mutual antipathy and the occasional flounce delete.

Haven't seen you around for awhile, Scoobsy-doo.

I've been thinking of you and how happy you must be for Murray's fine play this tournament.

I have no antipathy towards anyone here. On the other hand, a clubhouse mentality on a public forum bothers me a great deal. For that reason alone, I'll make an effort to post more often than I have in the past.

He's done what I hoped he would, taken advantage of his Betty Crocker draw. I'm sanguine about Rafa ripping him a new one tomorrow.

What you call a clubhouse mentality, I call a thread for people who choose to post in the same place and interact with each other, who unsurprisingly are going to be unhappy when people show up uninvited and show no respect for the personalities or prevailing ethos in that thread.

Isn't it odd that a word whose derivation means blood, is an adjective meaning cheerful or optimistic? Just a thought.

Anyway, I wish I were as optimistic as you. I'm always worried that a player with Murray's kind of talent can beat Rafa -- especially Rafa as vulnerable as he is at this tournament.

I'm sure Rafa will step it up - he seemed to against Soderling. Murray, on the other hand, hasn't played anyone like Rafa's calibre this tournament so...

I'm just ambivalent now - Rafa will win, Djokovic will win, and then the fireworks will begin - but for the semis, I'm pretty relaxed about them.

We will see. I always leave room for the unexpected in tennis.

This thread? It's gotten over 50 replies. Boredom has overtaken GM.

Hopefully another ABCD will win it. We've taken the last three titles.

Look at how easy the winning words were like 80 years ago--"knack," "therapy," and "initials."

Never mind the Spelling Bee, though. The Giants play in 40 minutes, and the Mavs play in 90....

I'll respectfully disagree then. That's against the spirit of the forum. Otherwise there would have been an invite system set up to that effect.

Oh btw, I was actually invited to this thread.
