I used to like to watch the America's Cup back in the early 1980s. That's when we insomniacs learned what "grinders" were.

Watching Li versus Perv right now. Perv isn't doing well but I'm going with Perv anyway(with a name like "Perv" how could you not?).;)

what stinks with the 6 channel stuff is they dont show the "night" matches (night in Australia).....Once the morning session is done the channel drops off so the channels can be done before midnight Central (if the matches went quick)

Agreed...great stuff back in the day. Regarding tennis...I just haven't been following the sport very closely since we haven't been competitive in recent years - no Sampras...no Connors...no McEnroe...no Agassi...nothing but a Mardy Fish at #8.

nope not really. But I'm use to being up until after 1:00 from working 2nd shift jobs.
When its a good match the last thing most folks will do is go "eh I'll go to bed and see the results the next day" (plus I have no reason to get up early)
But I know you are up late when you see the local CBS sign off for the night (yes they still sign off at 1:07 every night) ;)

another great night of tennis.....only bad part is we're down to the QF so there is no other matches to watch if one gets boring (like the 6 channel thingy which is now gone) :(

Womens final with the scream queens :)

Sharapova vs. Azarenka

Your neighbors might think you're watching porn the way these two scream every time they hit the ball :)
