    Totally sinful reaching for a water bottle instead of her father's special recovery fluid!

    Do they use brandy-infused water to manicure the Terre battue of Court Lenglen @RG?

    Roger Federer is not a fan of watching time go by before Nadal serves. He plucks chest hairs between points, because he gets so bored, but they grow back before the match is over, which even amazes Sean Connery...

    "As Time Goes By" was a British sitcom starring two veteran actors with ties to Sean Connery's career-building franchise...Geoffrey Palmer in the 007 "Tomorrow Never Dies" and Dame Judi Dench as "M" in that installment and many others.

    "Day After Day" was an enjoyable tune to listen to live when I worked a Badfinger/Don McLean concert. "Vincent" gets my vote over the more famous "American Pie" standard from DonnieMac, but I do like pie!

    Jim Morrison was a fan of CĂ©line's Journey to the End of the Night.

    Realms of bliss, realms of light
    Some are born to sweet delight
    Some are born to sweet delight
    Some are born to the endless night
    End of the night, end of the night
    End of the night, end of the night...

    Sparky Lyle had some big balls relying on a slider as his out pitch. He was the first reliever to win the Cy Young award.

    Soviet Secretariat Gorbachev was quite forward thinking and went to great lengths in allowing the Iron Curtain to dissolve, thereby allowing Radek to become a Playboy Of The Western World.

    "Requiem For A Heavyweight" was a pretty good film with Anthony Quinn, Jackie Gleason, Mickey Rooney, Julie Harris and a couple of pretty good real heavyweight fighters, Ali and Dempsey. The screenplay writer was another heavyweight...Rod Serling.

    As per wikipedia, Gregg shorthand is a form of stenography that was invented by John Robert Gregg in 1888. Like cursive longhand, it is completely based on elliptical figures and lines that bisect them.:)
