So I can go back and enjoy things like this, see?
Looks like it's time for these two to settle down with a steaming plate of Rice-a-Roni and a copy of Breaking Back. As a fellow ESPN commentator said to PMac, "It's a good thing this isn't Davis Cup, right?" Both defeated at the hands of Argentinians, the Sockless Wonder went out in 4 sets to Maximo Gonzalez, who is at least ranked in the top 100. But Blah... Blah went out in straights to a qualifier (God bless Leonardo Mayer)! Who was playing his second major, ever! So, uh, good work there, Blah. Since I possess an almost complete inability to watch American players on American TV (so sycophantic!) I didn't see much of either match, but I saw more of Blah's and he was his usual Blah self-- waddling around the court, looking petulant, pouting to himself about when he could finally get back on a hard court and play some real tennis... As soon as possible, looks like.
- Two fewer Americans to show, so now when there are actual interesting matches going on, ESPN will be less tempted to kick me to some outside court where some jackass is looking completely uninterested in what's going on around him. Although, they'll probably just show me more Williams sisters matches. Okay, so maybe never mind on that one.
- No more ridiculous posturing about Blah's chances at RG, due to his "great clay season" coming in. Zilch. His chances are nonexistent, y'all.
- Drastically increases Sammy Q's chances of making the Davis Cup team for Croatia! (Hey, at least he lost to Ernie.)
Pretty sure that only works for Safins, Mardy. Nice try though.
