This Week in Sports

Things I liked:
  • I went to the US Open and got to see Roddick and Sharapova play (not each other). Things I learned: 1. It is so fun to watch men play when they make it look effortless. 2. Sharapova is a beast - that woman is 6'2"! 3. Her screaming is seriously obnoxious (and entirely unnecessary).
  • College football is BACK! Thank God USC is no longer ranked #1 for no good reason and Texas is back on the board after beating Rice this weekend.
  • The NFL's season begins Thursday night with the Saints at Green Bay - should be a good game! (Assuming the game isn't pushed off the air by more Obama campaigning.)

Things I didn't like:
  • The rain is seriously putting a damper on things (except the fires in Texas, which are really devastating) - This weekend's NASCAR race was moved to today; the West Virginia football game - they played part of it, but not sure if the rest was postponed and for how long; and at least one whole day of US Open play, although I wouldn't be surprised if it's longer - it's supposed to rain all week here. Can we send that rain to Texas, please? We don't need any more flooding in the northeast.

Things that surprised me:
  • After one of his matches this weekend, Nadal got some nasty leg cramps. Check out the video. Apparently they were in both the front and back of his legs, so he couldn't just stretch it out. Looks painful.
