The things your favourites make you do!

Let's share some of the crazy or extreme things your favourite(s) has made you do!

For me, my dear crazy Svetlana has:
-made me pay US$10/h internet while on a school trip to watch her matches
-pull all-nighters all the time due to her chokes
-scream desperately for her autograph at wimbledon, embarrasing the hell out of me

What are some of the crazy things you guys have done?

Buy a $8500 lens to make nice close-ups?

Re: The things your favourites make you do!

Back in 92-96 driving anywhere that had a satellite dish that could pick up one of Sabatini's matches. Had a sports bar find the match I was looking for one time and they put it on. About 5 minutes later I realized that quite a few people in the bar were staring at me and pissed that the football game was now off. I smiled, drank my beer, and watched Gaby win her match (Tour Championships in 94 1st round I think)

I remember during the 94 Strabourg final between Gaby and Mary Joe Fernandez. At that time Gaby was still in a title drought, last winning a tournament in 92 at the Italian Open. I ended up calling Starsbourg during the final for score updates. Gaby won the first set, lost the second, and was up in the third. I remember calling back and the woman who kept answering (and spoke no English) saying le match finis-Ms. Fernandez champion-I was sure she was wrong until I called the AP (Associated Press) for the score and realized Gaby had lost.

Sitting behing Gaby's parents in the 1993 or was it 1994 Virginia Slims of Florida in Delray Beach. Wanting desperately to say hello or try and figure out how to get Gaby's autograph but to chicken to speak with them. When Gaby finished the match and walked out of the stadium she was rushed by a ton of kids and I did not have the heart to push them all out of the way

Just a few from a crazy in love fan of Gaby

oh when Anna Chakvetadze is your favorite you can basically expect to all but throw yourself in front of a speeding automobile watching her eternally struggle.

Re: The things your favourites make you do!

Went to Hobart 2010 the entire week to see Dokic.
Paid good money to see her matches at AO2009.
See all her AO WC playoff matches.
Asking for a photo with her a few times.
Tino remembers me, and I'm sure Jelena does too!
Yelling AJDE JELENA loudly, and this turns heads because I'm Chinese.
Yell ajde and fistpump at my computer screen during live scores or if lucky, a stream.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

OMG SAME! I SCREAM AJDE, DAVAI, VAMOS, POME, COMEON! Another thing is that I can NEVER sit down when Sveta is playing on Tv. I walk around THE WHOLE MATCH. I just can't sit!

Re: The things your favourites make you do!

Watching porn on German RTL while waiting on Steffi's semi final against Mary Joe F in Boca Raton 1992 which would be on the same channel. It rained so the match was delayed! I was still a teenager at the time and I am sure my parents wouldn't have been happy if they had known that fact

Not sure if it was the most crazy thing I ever did though. I was totally nuts at the time!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
