    Random Rants

    OK....
    So I'm watching TV and channel hopping when I stop on the US Open Tennis matches.
    I don't watch tennis, nor do I really care about tennis and I was quickly reminded why:

    With every hit the players all grunt, howl, and 'Hoo' like a bunch of friggin' idiots.

    It is embarassing and very annoying to watch/listen to!
    If I closed my eyes I couldn't tell if there was a Sumo match or a Porn video* on the TV.
    How long have tennis players been doing this ridiculous crap?

    It started big time with Monica Seles back in the 80's.

    Since I have never seen a porn video I'll take your word on how they sound Joe Walsh.

    I did wonder back in the 80's if Monica had anything left for her boyfriend after a tennis match or was she church mouse quiet.

    I guess you will be ranting a lot this Fall what with being a Ravens fan Joe Walsh...

    Are you familiar with martial arts? There is something called a kyup or keyup and I think that's basically the same thing they do in tennis. Its a way of focusing energy.

    Tennis players run more during a match than a soccer player during a game. Maybe they re grunting because they can

    Ahhh Charlie.
    Don't you know that rearview mirrors are for looking at yourself and for making sure that your make-up and mascara are on right...?

    Of course they are!!

    That's why they made them so they can be moved around!

    If they were for looking backward, they would have made them that way.
