Isn’t Nadal vs Federer like …Ken & Ryu?  Bird & Magic? Frazier & Ali?  In any case, Nadal beat Federer, again.

He beat him 7-5, 3-6, 7-6(3), 3-6, 6-2 coming close to 4 1/2 hours.  What blew Stank-0 away was Federer cryin.  Man, up!

Federer, who fell to Nadal for the third straight time in a Grand Slam
final
after French Open and Wimbledon losses last year, turned in a
routine service game to open the fifth set.

Serena is a monster….no, a monsta! She literally beat Safin in under an hour. Now, “analysts” want to consider her place in the game considering she needs 1 more Grand Slam to tie some other woman. Stank-0 is not up on his tennis game.

Her game with Safin was 6-0, 6-3. That’s breezy. That’s S dot Williams. Australian Open champion for 2009. When Serena is in her space, get down or lay down!

HOF Class of 2009

Posted: February 1, 2009 in HOF, NFL, offseason
Among the notables for the HOF this year are the late Derrick Thomas.  Following him are: Bruce Smith, Rod Woodson, Ralph Wilson (Buffalo Bills owner), Randall McDaniel, and the late Bob Hayes. 

This is quite a class.  Even more notable are those that did not get in.  They are:  Cris Carter (2nd all time in receptions), Russ Grimm, Andre Reed, Shannon Sharpe, and Paul Tagliabue, former NFL Commish.  That is quite a list NOT to be included in the Hall.  Odds are that Carter and Sharpe get in next go-round, ISO. 

UPDATE!: These guys become eligible in 2010.  Jerry Rice (1st all time in receptions), Tim Brown (3rd all time in receptions), and Aeneas Williams.  Yikes!
