Big Week

It’s a good week to be a sports fan. First off, my favorite athlete of all time is going for her 14th singles grand slam at Wimbledon and starts this morning. Svens coffee and tennis FTW! I’ve always been curious as to the press’ reactions to the Williams sister since they started kicking ass back in the ’90s. It was so distasteful for them to have to address these two sisters, who so clearly celebrated in crushing opponents in an otherwise pussified sport that they would get their shots in every chance they could.

I enjoy the way Serena attacks every point and when she’s on her game, her presence on the court is monstrous. She’s never apologized for bringing aggression to women’s tennis and made it acceptable for others to do the same. Well done I say.

Tomorrow night, Portugal takes on Spain in a semi-final match of Euro 2012. No, I’m not a huge fan of futebol mainly because of the redunkulous dives a non-contact sport brings out. But I enjoy watching a few high level matches a year and I have enough Portuguese drops in my Polynesian bloodline to make it a pride thing. Plus…Cristiano Renaldo. DUH!
