turned on the mets wild card game for a second just to see the score. last time i did that was in 2015 when they were in the world series. disgusted to see they now digitally impose an ad on the pitchers mound during the games. i know there are ads on practically every visible surface but planting one on the field at the center of your frame of vision is gross. people are disgusting money grubbers. i know given the option its hard to turn down but for some there is no end to the shamelessness. basketball does it too but baseball always had its sacrosanct idea of purity which i suppose has long ago vanished.
dont forget to wear your rolex at half past today
first american male in a tennis major semi-finals since roddick in 2006! tiafoe takes on rising spanish star alcaraz on espn at 7 though previous semi just finished so imagine it wont get started right away as they have to empty the stadium, etc. the norwegian ruud beat some guy named karen to log his first finals appearance. i think. i saw him i think lose to nadal at the french earlier in the year.
this has been your tennis minute brought to you by guerilla girls.
tonight is your third chance to possibly see serena williams last professional match at the us open. i havent watched the first two but she upset the #2 ranked player on wednesday. seems like its best if i dont watch, for her sake. havent watched any matches yet. she played doubles with her sister venus one last time last night and i believe they lost. they lost the first set in a tie breaker and were down 3 love when i checked the score. not watching did not help in that case so perhaps i have no bearing on the outcome after all.
twitter once again good for something. reminded me that the womens euro finals starts in 20 minutes on espn. i watched a whole game and a half of the tournament so i am well versed. england v. germany. england will take any high level soccer win at the moment i gather. even if they have to root for women.
been vaguely eying the wimbledon brackets for the last few days but havent tuned in until today. nadal down 2 sets to 1 to american! taylor fritz currently seeded #11. never heard of him but its not i follow the sport closely. says he is 24. im not listening to the announcers so i dont know if nadal is nursing an injury but seems like something is bothering him a little. nadal has won the first two slams this year. djokovic still lurking among others. this is a quarter final match.
womens draw seems in tatters but simona halep who won wimbledon in 2019 has made her way to the semis. not sure i recognize the others.
back to tennis. no mental health issues involved with that world. just mindless ball hitting machines. womens semis today. 18yo american coco gauff is in her first final four. dont quote me on that. current world number 1, some eastern european, is in the first match at 9 followed by the gauff match. meanwhile nadal continues to run the gauntlet facing #3 zverev, uhhh, right now. scratch that, thats tomorrow. fuck me, no, fuck you. it was confusing! now im depressed.
