Hi, friend! Do you vaguely enjoy sports where there are very few concussions and the people competing are mostly not terrible/problematic humans?

Are you likely to be awake in the middle of the night in the US due to some combination of post-election anxiety/pet care/child or partner with the flu?

Are you Old, and eager to either be made to feel More Old or Less Old by professional athletes in their *gasp* mid thirties? Do you want to bear televised witness to the (possible) End of an Era (maybe. probably not yet, tbh.)

Er. Also, do you have access to ESPN, if you're in the US? I should probably have asked that earlier.


ANYway, this weekend's Australian Open tennis finals are going to be Venus Williams vs. Serena Williams Friday night/Saturday morning and then Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal Saturday Night/Sunday morning, and there are storylines galore. Groundbreaking siblings still kicking butt decades later! Rivals and friends who are (not so much, apparently) past their prime! Thirty year olds joking about being old men, and women who are consistently, awesomely both gracious and indignant by turns when reporters say stupid things in their on court interviews!


I am excite, as well as totally jealous this is happening at the Australian Open and not the US Open in August.
