Who is the idiot from CBS who insulted Hewitt in front of the entire stadium full of tennis fans? ("He really exposed the weakness in your game.") I hope she's looking for a new gig right now. It's one thing to be a hard-hitting reporter (uh, yeah), and another to be interviewing the winner of a tennis match in front of a gallery of thousands. (No doubt someone forced her to say it . . . we love to hate Hewitt in this country, being the big ugly Americans we are.)
I'm sure Hewitt was muttering "you bleeding bitch" as he walked away. He should have been.
That said, Hewitt did show a bit of weakness (can you say "Pussy"?) today. I thought he had handed the match to Dent at 4/3 in the fifth set, but he managed to perservere, thank God.
After snoozing through most of that match (having stayed up all night), I watered, fertilized and clipped the flowers and plants in the backyard this morning. Today is much nicer than they said. We'll see if we get thunderstorms later.
Now I want Starbuck's and a nice ride. (Gotta get some gas if we're going to take that ride. Hope it's not too hard to do.)
To all my American friends, Happy Labor Day Weekend!
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder, You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger, May you never take one single breath for granted, God forbid love ever leave you empty handed, I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean, Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens, Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance, and when you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance!
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance, Never settle for the path of least resistance, Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking, Loving might be a mistake, but it's worth making, Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter, When you come close to selling out, reconsider, Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance, And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance!
