"The spin is that tennis' quirks are part of the charm. It's like learning a secret code. If matches would be played in four 15-minute quarters and the scoring went 1,2,3,4, game, any imbecile could grasp it. A friend of mine recently remarked that, "Tennis is for the kids who took Latin." This is a good example."

And, yes, I took Latin, because I am that big of a geek.
We are entering the most wonderful time of the year, btw. I love Wimbledon with a passionate passion. The grass. The pomp. The circumstance. The tennis. Watching Wimbledon and knitting is, perhaps, one of my most cherished moments of the year. Because I am that big of a Geek.
