Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

The offseason is so boring

I thought I'd start a chat thread for us so we can all get to know each other and have fun during the boring offseason

Let's start by introducing ourselves

I'm Andrew, I'm Greek, but I live in New York. I enjoy watching basically every sport (except auto racing, golf, and bowling ). I wouldn't really say I follow everything though . I follow basketball and football (soccer) very closely (and of course tennis ). I like basically all types of music (Greek, pop, hip-hop, R &B, most Eurovision), except for hard rock/heavy metal . I love food . I like Greek, Mexican, Texas BBQ, Italian, some Chinese, some German, etc. How about you guys?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

Name: Brent
Hometown: Melbourne, Florida, USA

I DO like golf and auto racing (Indycars and some F1), but agree with you on bowling--lol.

Music: anything except rap and hip-hop. Not too fond of head-banging heavy metal, either.
Favorite food: Chicken Marsala. Also like Japanese/Thai/Mexican/Italian/Greek/Lebanese & other Middle Eastern

Other interests: flight sims, computer adventure games, (American) football, reading, writing, Miyabi Isshiki and b( . )( . )bs. (lol).


I like all tennis, but most of the men's matches I collect are from the Connors-McEnroe-Borg era. For some reason I just like the tennis better from back then. Most of the matches I watch in person are women's.

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

Melbourne?
I went there earlier this year

I kinda like rap/hip-hop, but not always

Who is your favorite NFL team? I root for the Jets

I like writing too

*I see that we have some faves in common (well, I have so many faves so... ), like Mimi, Sori, and Ana.
Why don't you ever post in Sorana's forum? I post there a lot. I don't post that much in Ana's forum though

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

You visted Melbourne? Cool. Do you have family here? The reason I ask is that hardly anyone comes to Melbourne just to visit for the fun of it. It's a pretty sleepy town. I've only been to NY once, and that was when I was about 3 or 4 years old, so I don't remember it. Hopefully, one of these years, I'll be able to go for a few days of the US Open.

I like the Jets, too. They have cool looking uniforms. I was a huge Dolphins fan for years, but after they got rid of Shula and Marino, I stopped liking them.

My interest in Sorana is pretty recent. I knew almost nothing about her before Miami this year, and someone asked me to take some photos of her, and when I did I was smitten. Since then, I've watched her matches more and more and decided that I like her game, too. She has a much better serve than a lot of young players around her age.

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

No family, just went there for the hell of it
It's really nice, but there's like no nightlife, but I went with my family so I wasn't really looking for that stuff

Yeah, I've only been a fan of Sorana since USO 2008, but I've really grown to like her more than other faves of mine
I like Olaru for example, and I've liked her since USO 2007, but I like Sorana more

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

Yeah, I've been OD-ing on Olympics coverage. The Nordic Combined today was great. The luge, I think, was impacted by the move of the start line, because Zoeggler is the best pilot and if he had more track to make up for the bad starts I think he would have done better.

The speedskating on Day 1 was awesome. Both long and short track. I think there's going to be huge problems with weather all the way through the games.

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

I was so thrilled to see the Koreans bump into each other, and then the Americans stealing silver and bronze
I can't believe that Canada beat Slovakia 18-0 in women's hockey
The moguls event is actually really exciting
And RIP Nodar Kumaritashvili

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

Yeah, the Koreans botched a sweep in the 1500. Ohno and Celski were fortunate, though Ohno did skate a pretty good tactical race, trying to lead. Hope he can win at least 1 gold.

Downhill is today, supposedly. If the weather holds up. I'd like to see Bode pull out a great run and go down in a blaze of glory...

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

Did you just see the women's cross country race? They say Kalla (Sweden) has the best time so far and will win the gold unless an unseeded skier shocks everyone. It was exciting, between her, an Estonian, a Fin, a Norwegian, a Pole, and an Italian

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

More short track tonight. Hope they don't show that clip of Celski almost severing his artery again. That was pretty gross.

Davis goes for gold in the 1000m speedspaking. Vonn in the women's downhill. Could be a good day for the USA.

Re: Chat Thread for Tamira Fans

We keep coming so close in curling
Yesterday our men lost 7-5 to Germany or something, and our women lost 8-7 or something to Japan
I also heard that our men lost in extra ends to Norway, but I didn't see it
And now our women are down 4-3 to Germany
Go USA!
