5th set tiebreaks are stupid

As soon as I shut down the computer, the match completely reversed itself. Now, Andi is asleep and I'm watching a tiebreak to determine this match.

I love tennis.

I am watching something really special happen here.

Agassi wins. Helluva story for him.

We haven't heard the last of James Blake, though.

Really. I love tennis.

blake v. agassi

I'm watching this with my girlfriend.

I need to not watch sports with my girlfriend.

Something incredible is happening here. Blake is seriously bringing it(I mean taking huge swings at almost everything), and Agassi seems barely there. I was hoping for a great tennis match. This is just fascinating. Agassi let set point go by him without swinging at it. Really weird. In the meantime, I'm starting to feel bad for pulling for Blake. If I really even am.

Andi calls games M&M's. I wonder what she'll call touchdowns come Sunday.

New Orleans. What do I think?

I think it's horrible. I think it's horrible that people couldn't affort to evacuate. I think it's horrible that there are people who have no idea what happened to their family. I think it's horrible that the help for those people has been so inadequate. I think it's horrible that an idiot with a gun can slow things down. I think it's horrible that it took days for our president to recognize a problem that he helped cause (Jennings has helpful links for those who are confused). I think it's horrible that there are "shoot to kill" orders for people trying to get basic living supplies. I think it's horrible that only now are some people understanding that there even is a lower class of real human beings. I think it's horrible that countless people have no chance of getting back even a fraction of what they lost. I think it's horrible that all the human misery has led to violence.

Mostly, though, I think it's horrible that last night I sat in my air conditioned house after eating a good meal with a bottle of water while watching television and shaking my head at how horrible things are.
