Unbelievable, First it was Spain's Prime Minister going blah blah blah, Sadam is bad.......... Now Tony Blair is dribbling on and on. Luckily not too many shit heads support George W so it might end soon!

Why canīt he cancel his stupid meeting???? Grrrrrr... :mad:

Well, here in Philadelphia our ABC affiliate decided to show the Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day parade. At least you get some tennis.

Mar 16th, 2003, 05:47 PM
I am from chicago, Illinois and we r getting some stupid parade on sbc...is anyone else also getting a parade and on the tv listing for chicago, it says 1 pm central time tennis...and its about 12:55 om right now but the women;s final has aldready started....

Mar 16th, 2003, 05:47 PM
Now they are done... Spain, Portugual, US, and UK finished their spin, I mean speech.... Now they have 4 questions.... 1 question per country... so hopefully we will still get the match! Jose (Portugual Prime Minister) is a little long winded and he needs to speed it up!

I knew this was going to happen, I was praying for a long long match with Kuertan and Schulltler(sp?). Question is, they said SOME of you will be going to news report, does that mean we wont get the womens match in its entirety(is that a word? :-)

I knew it was too good to be true for the womens match to be on abc. I swear I'm cursed when it comes to watching tennis on tv , something always happens.

Mar 16th, 2003, 05:52 PM
And this match is going so fast!

this is so fucked up, these thigns ALWAYS happen, like the good matches, i mean, right after the guga match was over and lindsay and kim are walking out, they have to cut to that stupid thing. i mean, why does it always happen in the u.s, its times liek this when i wish i was in canada or something. Arg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! why does every single fucking channel have to show this stupid meeting that most americans don't care about that much. its just so fucked up.

Mar 16th, 2003, 05:56 PM
Ugghh, the media is cheating! This idiot from the BBC asked two questions instead of one!

OMG, now George W. is talking about POKER! Showing your cards! He is an ass!

Mar 16th, 2003, 05:57 PM
I already hated BUSH! But now :fiery: Ok,so I am being silly but for real this president wreaks.

Mar 16th, 2003, 05:58 PM

Mar 16th, 2003, 05:58 PM

Don't hate me for saying this,but if this match was on ESPN we would be seeing it right now instead of the Prez. and Co.

I guess ESPN is good for something. ;)

Mar 16th, 2003, 05:59 PM
While I'm still ranting...... I'm still pissed that I didn't get to see the J. Cap Serena match at the WTA Tour Championships....15 mins after the match starts ESPN turned to snow b/c of a rainstorm or something and lasted the whole freakin night. DAMN DAMN DAMN ABC

Mar 16th, 2003, 06:00 PM
It's done, Now we have Peter Jennings repeating each question and answer just in case we are total idiots and didn't get it the first time!

Mar 16th, 2003, 06:02 PM
i hate all these idiots reiterating what they already said

Mar 16th, 2003, 06:03 PM

Mar 16th, 2003, 06:03 PM
TENNIS IS ON NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Mar 16th, 2003, 06:06 PM
Well, they not only showed the speeches, sort of "understandable", they also needed to have that clown commenting.

Now, ESPN used to be very good, until Disney bought it.

guess what? who owns ABC? yes, you got it: Disney, they might be very good for mickey mouse but their tv management is pathetic

they have made sure I am not watching ABC again unless they are showing tennis.

Maybe if we email Disney, NOT ABC telling them we are not going to buy their DVDs, merchandise etc they will start to respect us a little more.
