Wimbledon 2008

While everyone I know are tuning to Euro 2008, I on the other hand will be watching Wimbledon. I’ll be rooting for my favorites as always, although, I’m replacing Nadal with Novak Djokovic this year. I was so impressed by his performance at the Australian Open.

A big thanks goes to Dubai Sport for televising the event.

The Australian Open

I have been keeping a close eye on the Kuwaiti blogsphere and I’m still wondering why anybody hasn’t mentioned anything about the Australian Open. C’mon people. Just because you don’t see sweaty men running after a ball doesn’t mean it isn’t worth watching (not to be disrespectful to soccer fans). Although I don’t exactly watch every single match, but I definitely watch the most important ones and whenever I see myself not doing anything else and there’s a game on. And for your pleasure only, I’ll share with you my favorite tennis players, 2 men and 2 women just so you won’t call me sexist.

Soccer X Comedy

My friend sent me this video the other day and I couldn’t help but to laugh my heart off (yes I chose to say heart instead of ass). Some of the content of this video are simply hilarious and others are literally jaw dropping. Who knew soccer can be so funny?
