For a couple of years now I have heard this word arrogant thrown around by certain people.
They used to say they hated the Sisters because they are arrogant, now they say they hate the Sisters because their fans are arrogant. Well big f'in deal, somehow I think you will always have an excuse not to root for the best players in the game and hopefully they will break you little hater hearts over and over and over...
You say arrogance, I say PRIDE.
I believe those people are insecure, little twerps who can't just root for their faves; they need to moderate the way others, specifically Williams Fans root for their faves.
A lot of it is totally cultural (from Jack Johnson to Ali to "Prime Time" to Hip Hop battles, with a special mention for Darryl "Chocolate Thunder" Dawkins and Big Daddy Kane; if you don't know you betta go ask somebody)...
So what if someone posts that Venus "crushed" someone or "smacked the taste out of her mouth". Or Serena "spanked that ass" or my personal favorite gave someone "a free tennis lesson". Thats the way a lot of sports fans speak. If you want others to respect your culture you should respect ours. WE WILL TALK SOME SMACK!!! We will talk about kicking ass before matches and we will declare ass kicked when it is kicked after matches.
It's all in fun and if you don't like it...
...don't read it (actually you're all going to read it anyway because you haters are more obsessed with the sisters than their fans are).
I strongly encourage Williams fans to be loud and proud; don't apologize for being happy about a first round victory. Every win is a blessing.
Cheer for every victory no matter who they are beating because you know the whining ones will be cheering against the Williams Sisters no matter who they are playing.
Oh and definitely laugh at whoever you choose to (especially the usual suspects); it is only a tennis match after all.
And keep defending them against all the negativity out there (as aside, if the sisters "can't play doubles" what does that say about the rest of the WTA and doubles specialist in particular?).
I love the way haters are complaining that they can't criticize/insult the sisters in peace (boo f'in hoo).
Just what player on this board can you insult without expecting a rebuttal (by the way the answer to that question is Alexandra S. but be careful because she can beat your faves on any given day- and probably already has).
I also love the "Williams fans think that they win something when the Williams sisters win"...
...newsflash, we do win something; the euphoria of victory, the satisfaction of seeing our faves rise from a wacky guy's dream to the greatest players in the game. If you aren't enthusiastic and happy when your faves win, I pity you.
You need to lay off the "sour grapes". You have Indian Wells all to yourself, enjoy it. We all know the Sisters will lose again and suddenly it will be okay to celebrate victories again...
In closing, I'm damn proud that the last few slams have been "A Williams party and no one else is invited". When they lose I will be sad and when they win I will be happy. I've been smiling for a long long time. Its a PROUD smile.
All I care about is winning slams!!! Whether is was Chrissie E., Young Monica or the Williams Sisters.
I actually hope someone takes a couple of the warm ups tournies on clay so the sisters will be hungrier when the French rolls around. Oh who am I kidding, I never want the Sisters to lose other than to each other.
Here's to 10 more Sisterslams!!!
Bouncing with PRIDE!!!
Special shout out to Car Key Boi, I share your political outlook and wish some of these students could comprehend that the only way they get to hold hands and sing "Give Peace A Chance" is because the US has been playing world policeman.
I support their right to protest but I wish they would open thier eyes be it Nazis, Italian Fascists, Eastern Euro Commies, or scumbag terrorist supporters...
I guess they can't "Handle The Truth" as Jack would say.
Actually I am thinking more of Sam Kinison in "Back to School" and his Vietnam rant right now.
SAY IT!!! SAY IT!!! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!
