AusO 2012 -- The Men's Draw

So, I'm totally not as excited to write about the Australian Open men's draw as I was for the women. It's not because I don't enjoy watching men's tennis. These days, in fact, it's far more interesting to watch the men than the women. But there is always so much more drama swirling around the women that it's easy to find ways to spice up the post. In contrast, the men are fairly professional these days. Roger Federer is offering the most controversial quotes in press conferences, which means there's not much drama to report. The best thing about reviewing the men's draw is that I get to pore over all the shirtless (and sometimes pants-less) pictures of the ATP's hottest guys. Of course, I do it for you. I know you don't have time to waste typing Nadal shirtless, Federer shirtless, Djokovic naked into internet search engines. And you shouldn't have to. I'm here for you. Now let's get it on … I mean get on with it.

AusO 2012 -- The Women's Draw

Jennifer Capriati
It's time for the Australian Open. If I'm being perfectly honest, this is my favorite tournament to watch on TV. It's usually on at times that don't conflict with anything I want to watch (that's not quite as true here as it was in NYC but since the last two weeks of January are usually chock full o' reruns the AusO* being in prime time is perfect) and the sun is always shining there. I don't know what their winters are like, but if I were going to choose a different country to live in for a time (and I'd love to do that) Australia would almost certainly be the one I chose.

The Liebster Blog Award

Happy new year. Wondering where I've been? Yeah, me too. Worst case of “no inspiration” since I started writing this blog a little over two years ago. But how about this for a boost of inspiration.

My very good friend, who is the author of The Fibitz, has bestowed the honor of a nomination for the Liebster Blog award upon me. What is the Liebster Blog award you ask? No idea. There's no entry for it on Wikipedia, which in the internet world pretty much means it's as real as Zombies and dragons (VERY VERY REAL). Why did I capitalize Zombies but not dragons? Whimsy.
