So as you can see over there on the right, I'm on Twitter. And for all the shit I gave Twitter when it first started to get rolling ("what's the point of it? who cares what I have to say? Why do I want to text message 500 people about my day") I actually like it. It's a great way to get breaking news and a lot of funnies (I follow a lot of comedians).
BUT, there are people out there that I won't follow just out of principle. One of those people, and really, enemy #1 on that list, is Justin Gimelstob. I just refuse. REFUSE. He's a tool, a douche, and a complete and utter dick. I refuse to acknowledge or support his existence in the world.
Which means I had to actually read this story on Deadspin:
A true trailblazer, Gimelstob came out of retirement to play in a match yesterday just to tweet-by-proxy throughout. As in the NFL, tweeting mid-match is not exactly polite in professional tennis. But if you're Machiavellian like Gimelstob or Johnson, the ends justify the means:
Gimelstob also mouthed a few comments for the intern to post in between points. Most of them were standard play-by-play recaps.
Oh, and by the way, Deadspin: Who *didn't* know that Sam Querrey had an intern?
