Belgians: Has your national press gone crazy today?

Is the news all over the fronts of paper, at the beginning of news reports?

Is it the big news of today, or is it not that big a deal?

yup its a big deal...first 3 pages of the sports-section was all about tennis. but kim and justine news is practically always front page news..

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

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

Consider this:

Yesterday, the new parliament was installed, a former colony is in serious troubles (riots), there were some letters containing toxic send to various ministers & ambassades...

And the main news was:
HENIN & CLIJSTERS play the final.

Once again: there is no Kim-Justine rivalry. You non-Belgians invent this. I watched Kim's match on the Flemish TV and Justine's on Walloon TV (since Kim won when I watched Flemish TV, I thought I had to watch Justine's on Walloon TV; just stupid superstition of mine - it worked though). Flemish TV is very supportive towards Justine and the same for Walloon TV towards Kim.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
26.03.2009: More Kim years to come!

Yes, they are both supportive for Kim and Justine. I lost count on the orgasms Karl vannieuwkerken, our commentator had!
He must be pretty exhausted....

BTW, hope some are a bit satisfied with the press coverage of Justine??

Karl Vannieuwkerken said "I propose Steven Martens (who will be co-hosting the match) takes Justine's side, and I'll take Kim's, 'cause it really is very hard for us to choose sides..."

"Ik weet dat wij ons erdoor slaan, dat we zij aan zij blijven staan
Tot alle stormen zijn verstomd en er een nieuwe lente komt
En alles weer begint van voor af aan..."

The all-Belgian final is compared to Eddy Merckx and his five times winning the tour de france and the Belgian national football team's run at Mexico '86 WC, so yeah it's big news here

"we can conquer the moon?"

do I have to get scared?

hard to beat karl vannieuwkerke though, multiple orgasms within only a few minutes

thank god for eurosport and foreign commentary, at least they're somewhat objective
