And it's Rick, not Rik.
Sorry about the mistake, Rick; I was thinking about your nation's basketball legend, Mr. Smits, and ASSumed that you spelled your name the same...though I should be more in tune with name spellings for faithful,long-standing crewmembers here on the SS Da-mehn-chuh-vuh

Okay, Rick, I've tampered with your original quote just a bit b/c of the poignant relevance.

Basically, I tolerate this immensely stupid sport--for the major competitions, that is--because of loyalty to mis paisanos who take such national pride in our performance. However, it's beyond absurd when FIFA brags about its popularity in many countries. That's sort of like a Pakistani mufti or Italian priest bragging about how their religion is the dominant one in their respective nations......Uh, YEAH, dumb-asses! It's easy to be the most popular religion when you've slaughtered and intimidated your competition for centuries...and brainwashed kids from the crib under threat of death if they even CONSIDER believing something else.

Despite the senseless violence from its countless legions of retarded, inbred fans, soccer hasn't gone quite as far as intolerant religious zealots, but the basis for its popularity is just as superficial. When you've had the extremely good fortune of chronologically predating other team sports....PLUS strong political big shots to propagate your position....PLUS the brainwashing-from-the-crib strategy mentioned above...then, YEAH, your sport damned well SHOULD be highly successful. The most damning evidence against soccer is found in the rise of basketball(which is not nearly my favorite sport, btw). Basketball was basically a nothing sport in Europe prior to WW2 and now, with the exception of England, it's huge all over the continent. If you had to find even 10 soccer "converts"(i.e., people who weren't raised on the sport yet grew to love it), it'd take you a f--king MONTH just to find that many

In short, NO SPORT can have any REMOTE claim at being the world's best when they have referees and 'leaders' who make Beavis and Butthead look like Nobel Prize winners. Why in the f--k would you have a Japanese official handling a match between speakers of Croatian and Portuguese?? Because they're incurably STUPID, that's why. The officials for Mexico's match "earned" their positions via their willingness to perform marathon fellatio sessions--swallowing included--on FIFA administrators

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

Football, the only sport you can endure for over 90 mins and not see a single poxy point scored. Plus, who wants to look at 22 overpaid hairy assed men for an hour and half.

Anyway, that's enough talk of the "ugly" game, all football talk is now banned or its bilge room duty on curry night!

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

I guess your talking about that 'sport' where 22 overpaid youngsters in bright colored underwear chase after a piece of dead cow? If so, please leave me out of it. Also, I think the only tolerated place in the Gardens to talk about this activity is in the delightful Dani D's thread.

I have to disagree on this one. Despite 'leaders' like Scott and Allaster, tennis CAN claim the world's best, simply because it gave us,.... well, I don't think I have to explain myself any further.

EDIT: Dammit. The Cap'n was ahead of me...

Aye, aye, Cap'n. The Latino spirit took ahold of me for just a bit.

....And Rick, I definitely appreciate your point, but I still say that you deserved bilge room duty for not knowing who Veronika was

I have not even seen that many "security" guards at Wimbledon or RG or anywhere else, all about 14 years old in dark shades, black suits and earpieces behaving as if they were the secret service telling you "cant go here cant go there cant take photos unless your cameras a piece of shit disposable that doesn't work.

This brings be onto a question for Rix or anyone else that knows about photography at tennis events, I have a Canon DSL 700d with 18 to 200mm lens, apparently "that's professional" it isn't, and I cant use it at all or else rentagoon TM will escort you from the premises. Never had this before at Wimb RG or Eastbourne, all much MUCH bigger events, is this even right?

Anyways, oh how I miss the days of seeing Lena live, having to sit through 20mins of Hantuchova (thank god it rained) and her 75mph first service and endless pissing about that makes Sharapova look quick, only a close up view of the rather magnificent chassis and legs of Wickedmayer made the day worth the £100 it cost.
that's too bad Ross..

Dunno what to expect of the Topshelf open tomorrow, will be going there after 7 years of absence Having my memories on 2005 edition when Lena got injured and i just wanted to enter the centre court with my letters for Lena which i couldnt give... But its a great tournament where you can get close (don't know if it still is) to the players... take my dad's old olympus camera with me... a nice cam... better then my konica minolta one... Will be experimenting with it and taking pics of halep and ferrer and others.. Enjoying a day of tennis.. i think it will cost me about 80 euros

Will take four hours by train and taxi to the autotron and 4 hrs back.. but i do not care for a great day of tennis at a great tournament... Don't know if members of the dutch Lena clan will go?

Just out of curiosity, how close is Rosmalen to the coast?? If it's close enough, we could transport Elena and Veronika via SSD choppers

So Elena went to S'Her-got-them-bush back in 2005? I can't recall if she had bangs back then or not

Okay, Cap'n, as a patriotic paisano of Benny Hill, perhaps you could tell us why they refuse to play Wimbledon on "Middle Sunday". They actually did it at least one year when the demons were constantly pissing from the cloudy realm during the first week, forcing the organizers to play matches that day due to being so far behind schedule.

I'm sure that Elena wondered during her playing days,too, WTF is so sacrilegious about playing on the first Sunday? Did King or Queen Who-ever decide, back in the 1800s, that that day would be reserved for a croquet or badminton break from the action?? We non-Brits humbly await your expert cultural input

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

I've read that some of the SW former SSR states can be quite pleasant in the summertime. I wonder if Elena has ever vacationed in Azerbaijan; even if she HAS, it's unlikely that she'll ask us to take her to the Baku tourney

Sorana Cirstea is the #1 seed in Baku; she might enjoy sunbathing from the decks of the SSD in her spare time. Tbh, though, I haven't bothered to check the map to find out if Azerbaijan is landlocked or not.....nor do I know how well the underachieving Rumanian gal gets along with the BGO

Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

Our 'miffed' moderator has done his part in other threads to champion Elena's gorgeous-yet-classy appearance and bearing....a distinction from many current players that I totally appreciate
