Anyone else think the ceremony was nothing special? All that hype, and the best thing about it was the incredible crowd reception (had me in tears). After that looong ovation, we had brief, pointless speeches by Paul, Jim, Boris, and John (I couldn't believe no one talked about his heart or his mental strength). Then Pete gave a speech more fitting of a winner's speech than a retirement speech. He was clearly moved and nervous, though, so I forgive him (plus, he's an incredible tennis player, not public speaker). When he made the comment about it being his last time on the court, it got my gut.

I must say - the baby is very cute I had not seen him until tonight...

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

I didn't get to see the ceremony, but I'm getting a little teary-eyed looking at the photos.

Bye Pete It was a pleasure to watch you play tennis so well

And Christian is a cutie

pete, we'll miss you


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

I don't like petey but little christian is cute

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

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
