Marathon Wimbledon Final!

6 07 2008

Anybody out there watching with me, the Federer-Nadal championship match is INCREDIBLE!!
(It’s now almost 3 pm in Florida.)

When we settled down to watch at 9 am, we were laughing because the schedule slated it from 9-3. Six hours? How silly . . .

Oh shoot. Here comes another rain delay! To pass the wait time, see JJ’s classic tennis and Wimbledon blogging here and here.

Pre-Snook I blogged Wimbledon at Culture Kitchen as proving a case against standardized, mechanized talent development, in kids and other human creatures.
Oh and there’s “Does the Church Play Tennis, Can Prayer Save School and Are You My Mother?”

UPDATE –
They’re playing again now but seems it’s almost dark across the pond . . .will it go until tomorrow??

UPDATE – This is like Clinton-Obama, the Contest That Cannot End! It’s 7-7 in the fifth. Maybe we need some superdelegates to decide it?

FINAL after the speeches — I take it back, it’s better than Clinton-Obama. On shorter notice (like three minutes) and way more exhausted, these two young men and their supporters are gracious, classy uniters, not dividers. Good for tennis, good for us.
