This is more than nifty:
Why, its positively .... Jeterian! :-)
Don't insult Federer by comparing Jeter to him.
At that point, I would just pack up my rackets and go home. No way was I going to be able to beat Roger.
The man has reached the finals in 17 of the last 18 Grand Slam events. Staggering.
I can't hit a shot even close to as good facing the net, let alone running away from it. wow!
Federer said it was the best shot of his career. Did you see Djokovic's face? His smile said it all. Nifty indeed. Federer's ability is unprecedented.
I've made that shot more times than I care to admit... Then again, since it was racquetball, maybe it's a bit different? :D
what's even more amazing is the timing of the shot. it was to set-up his break-set-match-championship point. not just a random point in the match. a bunch of family and friends were watching the match and we all jumped after that. unbelievable
Don't try that at home or you'll be singing soprano for the rest of your life.
Baseline Banter? Serena was pretty funny laughing at herself at the MTV awards last night. Called in to introduce one of the performers (forget which) she made an awkwardly scripted mention of her foot fault. It was a clunky and forgettable line, but at least she can begrudgingly smile about her unfortunate meltdown. Suggests to me she was embarrassed, and won't let it happen again.
Taking my pop to Joba v Angels From Hell tonight. We'll be way back behind home plate in the upper deck taking in the gorgeous views, Sept. night, and playoff-preview-ish atmosphere. Going to games with my dad is usually a chilled out affair in which it doesn't matter much who wins, as long as we get to hang for a few hours. Peanuts and ice cream are a must. But tonight we're heading to the Stadium hungry for a Joba victory against these damn Angels - and something tells me we're not going home disappointed. Go Joba! Go Yanks! See youse guys on da flipside!
PS - the only other two games I've been to at the new place happened to have been Joba victories. Let's make it a prefect 3-0, kid.
 And that's more or less what happened.
I'm going to be there tonight too, with rain checks from May 3rd. Taking the Mrs. It's her first trip to the new park. We'll be sitting in the Todd Drew box. Oddly enough, this will be the third time I've seen J. Weaver pitch at the Stadium in the past three years.
 at first I thought you were jokingly calling Joba Jeff Weaver.
