Whenever I'm @ home watching tennis on television, I obviously want the match to be played while I have time to watch. Rain delays drive me absolutely insane, especially during Wimbledon.

Does anybody other than myself secretly :mad: HATE:mad: the people in the stands who put their umbrellas while the match is going on? It's almost like they are wanting the match to be stopped....LOL! I know. . .I know. ...when it's raining, I'd not want to get wet either, but damn. Those umbrellas drive me wild because I know play is about to be stopped.

Very true, I purchased my first umbrella at Wimbledon last year on the first day of play. :lol: :tape: I declared myself too cool to own an umbrella before that point.

Most of my life, except when my Mommy made me use her umbrella, I could get by with a hat and a jacket. At Wimbledon that first day there was nowhere to hide. I had covered seats on Center Court but it was my first day at Wimbledon (a life long dream) so I had to "go walkabout". The Wimby Shop was sooo packed with people that I think it took an hour to get anything.

Normally, I'd be miserable but my mentality was, "Dude, I got to experience rain at Wimbledon". :weirdo:
