Well Amigos it’s been a rough day at Casa de Canterbury for the old woman Slow and Pretty and their favorites at FIFA and Wimbledon – a very rough day. The Red Man knows when it’s time to lay low, and it’s time to lay low up in here tonight.
And for me, beach!
Slow’s all-time favorite Rafael Nadal was beaten by a 19-year-old Aussie named Nick Kyrios who managed to serve an unbelievable thirty-seven aces and thoroughly frustrate Nadal who said in his press conference that it was hard to win when your opponent was serving 114 mph on their second serve. That’s some serious smoke on the ball, Sports Fans, so Kyrios goes to the quarterfinals and Rafa plans to head to the beach. Vaya con Dios, good buddy, and enjoy the sun and surf.
Nick Kyrios from Australia
Beating Nadal – Mission Possible
Now Slow and Pretty can join forces and hope that Roger Federer has one more Grand Slam left on his racket at Wimbledon this year…just one more for the Federer. Heh, heh.
Bigger Balls – Big Losses
FIFA – Team USA against Belgium
Belgian Sports Fans very happy!
Belgian Coach also very happy
Team USA not happy
The agony and the ecstasy
To the victor
The Red Man sends Paw Snaps and Twirls to the Belgians and Nick Kyrios and all the other Big Winners on this first day of July that starts us on the downside of the year 2014 and he also sends a huge Bark Out to Rafa and Team USA and the other Big Losers for the great moments in sports that all of us in the bleacher seats at Casa de Canterbury have enjoyed in the past few weeks. Slow and Pretty will just have to get over themselves and learn to be a little bit more positive in their negativity. Seriously, these are two lesbians who need to get a life outside the sports arenas.
Get me outta here Percy…I need to tip-paw to bed…shhhh…catch you later…
Go Aussie Nick! Woo hoo 😀 (apologies to Nadal fans)
Aussie Nick is Awesome Nick today!! Of course, we immediately thought of our favorite Australian author Amiga when our guy Nadal got taken to the woodshed today…great match for Nick – looks like he could be the next Rod Laver!! (apologies accepted) 🙂
Good to hear from you…hope all is well at the RUC…you lucky Aussie Author!!
Watched the end of the Nadal match and was blown away by the talent of that young Aussie. Expect great things. Sorry USA didn’t progress any further but hey, you’ve done well in getting that far for a mostly non soccer playing nation 😀
Agree with you Animalcourier – Aussie is Awesome!! Wouldn’t be surprised to see him go deeper this year if he can stay focused…Team USA did well – we just aren’t quite up to par with Europeans and South Americans yet…been a fun ride, though! Travel safe…thanks for hanging in with us – truly. 🙂
Feeling depressed as the Andy Murray match progresses!
Alas, a bad day for Andy and his Murray Band of Followers – looks like the Big Four have serious challengers on the horizon! Misery loves company. 😦
