Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!

Have I mentioned lately that I love Andre Agassi (the 'elder statesman')? Of course, he did torture me for a couple hours, but it was worth it in the end.

Sue was here for dinner (fried green tomatoes) and the three sisters shouted their lungs out during this match (and it got a little blue in the room, I must say).


Agassi can beat Ginepri easy, can't he?

My goal was to see Andre make it to the second week. Now he's made it to the second weekend, the tenth time in 20 years.

Amazing. Like McEnroe said, it made him proud to be a tennis player.

For me, I think both McEnroe brothers need to bend over and take it from Agassi right now for counting him out a dozen times or more before and during this match. As my Dahmer icon would say (if anyone had made me one), "Eat me!"

(Thanks, Andre, for a memorable Wednesday night.)

ETA: Gotta mention that Andre blows snot out of his nose better than anybody I've ever seen. He had Sue completely grossed out!

Agassi could beat Ginepri with one hand tied behind his back. :) Even though I wanted James to win and am a little sad that he didn't, I'm happy for Andre. Plus, I'm not sure if James could beat Ginepri but I'm sure Andre can. So I guess it worked out okay, at least James didn't go out in straight sets.

And I have to say, I did catch Agassi's snot-rocket. I'm sure he was glad they aired that on tv.

I almost wrote that exact thing ("with one hand tied behind his back"). Then I thought about the two-fisted backhand and thought, well, maybe . . .

James and Andre brought down the house. I'm so sorry you were on the end of the country that got switched off the feed. When they mentioned it, I said I would go through the TV and kill the idiot responsible if I had to. I'm sure it's a deal USA has with the 'Big Dog,' CBS.

If I have to hear about Andre being 'over' and 'tired' and 'used up' one more time . . .
