*weep* I didn't watch yesterday's final and now I'm waiting for the Tennis Channel's rerun or my download to finish, whichever pops up 1st. It's my punishment for being a bad fan… but my poor heart just couldn't have dealt with it yesterday. 2 sets in and I was completely drained by their slogging brand of tennis. I was having recurring nightmares of 2011 all over. The grunting, the laboring, the nice-try-but-not-good-enough!
But apparently I was saved from another embarassing CBS aftermatch ceremony. OMG when will they ever learn? A Major match is best 3 out of 5. That means at least 3 hrs, likely 4 or 5. Add in pre-match warm-up and post-match ceremony you need a good solid 4-5 hrs scheduled. The hell do they think they can squish it in a 5-8pm slot? And then cut the competitors' speeches so rudely? And apparently they still emphasize the prize money so tackily. 3.6 M. Isn't that just grand? The biggest cheque cut ever. Only in America.
You deserve Nadal doing this to ur trophy:
