Go Rafa!


Our favorite Spaniard pulled it off yesterday after two rain delays and in the longest Wimbledon final in recent history (notice it's dark in the photo). I don't know if anyone else watched this match but we we're exhausted afterwards.


*** Kristin here. Craig failed to mention one very important point of the match. Imagine: The biggest final in a long time. Nadal and Federer each have 2 sets. It's 3 all in the 5th set and then... black. Why does our TV go black? Because we are living in 1987 and our VCR tape ends. I was hating my life. Damn that rain delay. But don't worry, two good things came out of it: One, Craig's sister Melissa bailed us out because she had the rest of the match recorded and two, we ARE getting TIVO. Case closed.


Craig again: Don't bad talk 1987. '87 brought us Robocop, Three Men and a Baby, Michael Jackson's "Bad", and the emergence of acid washed jeans.

Best tennis match I've ever seen. I even said a little prayer for Rafa as I checked the score on my iphone between sunday school and sacrament meeting.

I would be exhausted after watching all of that TV, too. But, as Craig has said in the past, you take it one day at a time.

Craig said...

It's true Megan. You don't just wake up one day and say I'm going to watch a lot of TV. It takes sustained effort. Day after day. You have to avoid distractions (like a masters degree, and especially numerous masters degrees - no offense Jeremiah) Have you ever seen Rudy?

If only Rafa wore Chuck Taylors and cargo shorts...

ROBOCOP!!! I watched that no less than 6 months ago and relived its goodness.

Where is the mention of the ladies finals? Sisters kicking each other's a$$es was pretty good too. If only it involved a broken pillow fight at the end.

This was SO awesome! I seriously watched it ALL day...felt like a zombie afterwards! I had to see who FINALLY won though!! And girl, you need to get that TIVO!!

Sarah Jane said...

Best. Match. Ever. But don't think Tivo can solve all your problems either, we did set the Tivo to record for 7 hours and STILL didn't get the whole thing. Lesson learned.
