Navratilova honored....

NAVRATILOVA HONORED

Martina Navratilova received the latest recognition of her amazing career in Madrid on Wednesday, when she was awarded Marca newspaper's "Leyenda" ("Legend") award. In the 70-year history of the sports publication, the most widely-read daily sports newspaper in Spain, only two dozen people have received the award, among them IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch, basketballer Michael Jordan, Formula One driver Michael Schumacher and tennis players Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario and Pete Sampras.

Sánchez-Vicario was on-hand Wednesday to help present the award and also to help translate the tribute read out in Spanish to Martina by the newspaper's editors!

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Ennis and Jack found something most people don't ever find in this life...true love, the deepest, purest, most beautiful thing in the universes. Ennis and Jack have TRUE LOVE. They are SOULMATES. They have a love so deep, so pure, so strong, that it transcends everything, it's eternal.

Somehow it reminds me of the other Martina who is nursing her injuries. A little ironic, when Navratilova is still running and competing while Hingis was on the brink of forced retirement.

Yeah, Martina!! I'm really happy for her.

I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, except in alphabetical order like it should be.

Well deserved for Martina!

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
