Sportsapalooza!

I'm bad enough when I have hockey playoffs and baseball to keep me busy, but now, starting yesterday, I have Roland Garros (French Open) tennis to watch. And I know I've said that I hate clay tennis and that Nadal has killed tennis for me, but I'm really just whining when I say that. I still watch. And today, unfortunately, I'm watching Nadal play in a bright pink shirt and a bright yellow headband. Will no player step up and save me from this? I'm begging here. Anyone? Anyone? Federer?

Annnnd...I'm clearly whining again. I'll stop. *sigh*

So, leaving aside the futility of watching Roland Garros for two weeks when the outcome is predetermined on the men's side (Oh. Sorry...was that another whine?)...grrr...I'll switch gears and talk about my Red Wings. Ahhh....feeling better already! They looked positively studly yesterday in their 6-1 defeat of the Blackhawks in game 4 of this playoff series. I hardly ever mind a beatdown. Unless someone cries and then not counting the NY Yankees or the Anaheim Ducks. Heh. So, one more to go, as the Wings lead the series 3-1. Are you with me, Wings fans? Go Wings!

And lastly, let's talk baseball...I missed watching the Tigers play yesterday, but I read that they lost and shrugged it off, of course. They'd been on a nice winning streak since getting swept by the Twins. Looking good.

Ahh...baseball...hockey...tennis. I can hang with this.

One of our church friends is a huge fan of the Red Wings...he always wears Red Wings gear. I think he has a Red Wings tattoo. He hasn't shaved in a long time. He says that's a good thing.

Fanatic = fan. *sigh*

I'll save you, Darcy!

First, I need to learn to play tennis. Do you hold the fat end and hit with the skinny end, or the other way to?

Then, I'll need months of training. And probably some genetic engineering....

Hee. I don't quit shaving for the playoffs. ;-)

And aww, blake...how gallant!

I think I found a pic of Ruth Anne's Red Wings fan: Link.

Go Wings!

Darcy said...

Oh! LOL, El Pollo!

I don't know...he's kinda cuddly? ;-)

Thanks for the Wings support! Hope they close out this series tonight....

Is Darcy a Tigers fan? I do miss the old Tiger stadium. It was a great place to see a game.

Darcy said...

I miss it too, Bushman. I recently drove right by it on my way to a sports bar near there (where I grabbed a shuttle to the new ballpark), and it was mostly torn down. Oh, that was a sad thing to see! I spent many a summer there in the right field bleachers watching the games with my big brother.

Comerica Park is beautiful, though. Takes some of the sting out of it for me.
