After spending most of a gorgeous, fall like Wisconsin day in the waiting room while Bigg’s surgeon had the workout of his life reattaching his biceps tendon, we started watching some of the men’s Singles final match of the US Open. Now, I realize you’d guess that I was a huge tennis fan based on the fact that Serena Williams in my favorite athlete but you’d be wrong. I don’t hate tennis and I’ll watch it as I can, but it’s been a long time since I’ve sat and watched an entire men’s match. While I respect and admire the strength, speed, and athleticism displayed surely there are better things to do.
But when we got home and situated, I turned it back on and saw that Britain’s Andy Murray was kicking a little ass and thought, “Huh, this looks fun.” He’s been on the cusp of big wins this year and you just can’t help rooting for him a little bit. Of course as we started watching, Novak Djokovic started ramping up and took the next set.
Anyways. This was a great match and very entertaining to watch. There were volleys that went down that could only be described as, “Wow.” Two class acts working their asses off. And Murray finally got his first Grand Slam win. Pretty cool. Congrats to him.
Also. Today is the obvious 11th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. Remember in a way that brings comfort to you, and honor to those who have been directly affected.
