He deserved this

I'm not a huge fan of watching sports on television at all.
I would like to be at the game in person or sometimes really enjoy a playoff game.

Tennis is one sport that is really boring to me.
Today was different.
Not since Muhammed Ali pounded on Leon Spinks to regain the heavyweight title have I wanted someone to win as much as I wanted Roger Federer to take the French Open today.

I could feel his emotion and was so thrilled for him.

He seems to me like one of those celebrities/superstars that is also a genuine nice guy.
I'd like to think so anyway.

I've met those who aren't very nice and others who surprised me with how kind they were.

I think there's another blog in that...

For now, it's a beautiful afternoon with plenty to do still before Boo's first baseball practice tonight.

Tiny is sitting baseball out this year to focus on ..... Tennis!
He's good too!!

Stay well,

I'm really curious as to what emotion you read on that athlete's face, that made you root for him so strongly.

I bet it was his passion and like you said - how genuine he was, probably at wanting to win that match.

I think those are the two things that set most people apart from the rest of the herd - passion and a genuine heart and spirit.

Final thought - you're a good writer!

Be well and see you in Twitterland!
