While my entire family is obsessing over football, I've been watching the Australian Open. The Aussie Open is a grand slam event in Tennis (sort of like play offs). I'm probably the only person I know who ranks tennis as my favorite sport. I love everything about the game. I'll submit Fernando Verdasco as exhibit "A" to make my point. The fact that he's joined by scores of others playing in one of the most beautiful cities in the world (that would be Melbourne, Australia) is a bonus.
