#1 takes on #2
A tradition I have on the July 4th weekend is getting up to see NBC’s “Breakfast At Wimbledon” coverage of the Men’s Finals.
Again this year, my favorite player, Roger Federer, is competing for the championship. Federer was born in Basel, Switzerland. It’s the hometown of part of my family. He’s trying for his sixth straight title at the All England Club.
Federer is taking on Rafeal Nadal, who’s currently serving for a set point. Nadal and Federer are no strangers to each other. They’ve faced off at the net for six Grand Slam title matches. Federer is currently ranked number one and Nadal is number two.
They’re meeting for their third consecutive Wimbledon final. Nadal has never taken a championship from Federer at Wimbledon.
We’ll see how things play out today. Nadal took the first set, now Federer is leading on the second set.
I love “Wedding Crashers”. TBS played it twice last week, I caught the second half of the first showing then watched the whole thing.
Because I couldn’t stand to see it with all of the commercials, I pulled out the DVD and watched it again yesterday. The movie cracks me up and I have to admit seeing things I haven’t seen each time I watch it. I end up even laughing at jokes I didn’t catch during my other 500 times of seeing the film. Hey, I’m not slow, maybe I just don’t have the best attention span.
I love the line “I hope you flip your bike over and knock your two front teeth out, you selfish son of a b#*ch!” I laugh uncontrollably each time I hear it because it reminds me of someone. It truly is a classic movie, by my standards, I’m up for watching it anytime.
By the way, I’m really looking forward to the 4th. Tonight, I’m sure I’ll see fireworks over the city from my apartment, I’m sure I’ll post some pictures. The Cleveland Orchestra is playing a free concert downtown. I hope the weather holds off. On Friday night, fireworks will light up the skies from the Flats. My parents and their friends are coming up for the big event. We’ll have a great “seat” for those. I’ve been waiting for this weekend since I moved into my place.
More good news… tomorrow is my Friday! Whoohoo!
