When was the last time you really wanted( or needed )to say something, but kept quiet? Write a post about what you should’ve said.
Yesterday we went to watch live tennis, we bought our tickets in June. The day started with rain, I’m an optimist and told myself, well we still have time the skies will clear out and we will watch the match. It wasn’t our lucky day. The rain kept falling. I was tired of standing around, trying to stay dry. My daughter realized our tickets allows us to go to the lounge in case of inclement weather.
We went on the hunt looking for the lounge after about ten minutes we found the place, we walked in ,there were people sitting at tables,there were four chairs in each of these places, the ones who occupied the tables reserved two chairs for their bags and the other two for themselves to sit on.
I totally understand these people sitting on chairs which is exactly what one must do, I failed to comprehend why the other two vacant chairs were filled by their bags.Everywhere I turned around it was the same story.I wanted to let them know how mean they were, I didn’t, I went all the way from St. John’s to Montreal to watch live tennis not to argue about lack of decency on the part of these so called hot shot elites.
I moved on further, I found a man sitting at a table with three vacant chairs, I was exhausted at that point, I built enough courage to ask him, if he was holding those chairs for someone. “No, he said you can sit on these two, but I’m holding one for my wife.”
I was glad I spoke or else, no one would offer. 🙂
This is a post about my favorite sport, “tennis, ” this was an anxious week -end for me and my daughter. Sunday was the day the final men’s tennis match was played in Wimbledon, London,England. The players who reached the final was Novak Djokovic from Serbia and Roger Federer from Switzerland.
Each player had won the famous trophy more than once. Novak was going for his third trophy and Roger for his eighth . Both are excellent players and anyone of them were capable of winning the match.
This time I decided to watch the match regardless of who wins. The first few games were pretty even, after each scored six games there was a tie-break, Roger made some unusual errors which cost him the set.
The second set was equally competitive they tied at six games all, the tie break followed and Roger won the second set. I was happy I thought Roger had a chance to win.
There was a rain delay of twenty-five minutes, when they came back Roger did not seem himself he made too many unforced errors which cost him the second set followed by the third and eventually the match, I was disappointed, consoled myself by thinking Roger would do well in the next tournament.
Our cats Gabriel and Rafael are watching US open tennis 2014. It is a grand slam tennis tournament, held in Flushing Meadows in New York.
They became interested when they saw Joe Wilfrid Tsonga bouncing the yellow ball. They were fascinated by the bouncing ball and thought they could get it.
I took a picture of them when they were watching the match.
Raphael is sitting on the right and Gabriel is on the left.
Team USA is playing today in the soccer world cup in Brazil. Do you have any funny/harrowing/interesting memories from a sporting event you attended, participated in, or watched?
Last year my daughter and I watched an ATP 1000, tennis match in Montreal,Canada. If my memory is correct, it was a men’s match, two Canadian players were in the semi final and final matches. Nadal played the final against Milos Raonic.
Milos lost the match, I know Milos is a good player, against Nadal he was unable to play well. I guess poor Milos lacked experience and Nadal took full advantage of it.
