Try as it might, golf will never totally shake its image as a pastime for stuffy snobs.....With THAT in mind,having more "animal hazards" would make it more entertaining.For added fun, experienced handlers would actually release the predatory threats at opportune moments when the golfers weren't looking: T.Woods running fearfully for his life with a couple hungry wolves in pursuit---Are you gonna tell me that THAT wouldn't make an awesome gif?

Was thinking that it would be some small pueblita, but Xalapa is a decent-sized town that's the capital of a large state.If you look towards the Gulf of Mexico, you'll see a long,skinnier California-shaped state, and that's Veracruz.

To answer your question, a dog would be loyaller to the people in the city, but a self-centered,spoiled cat would be more clever and adapt to the wheeling-and-dealing of politics.

Maybe the Mexicans, like the rest of us, want to try having felines rather than felons running their government?

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

We all know that the WTA goes to embarrassing lengths to legitimize AI; b/c she has only made one Slam QF in FIVE YEARS(and even THAT one with an easy-ass draw), the WTA is following in the footsteps of humanist-run public education by dumbing down the standards: They comment that she has a "streak" of reaching the 4th round of 4 consecutive Slams.Can you imagine the huge celebration in the Graf camp every time that Steffi achieved such a monumental.....streak

Well, the WTA webpage has reached another nadir in keeping with the pathetic Allaster realm of No Accountability. They have an article where AI shares her brilliant insights on the successful transition from clay to grass. The problem is.....when you cite a source for any particular topic.....that source ought to have an ounce of credibility.This is why our waste-of-life,ex-president Salinas isn't ever invited to lecture on political corruption.

It was probably assumed that AI would beat Vesnina in the 1st Round....though Elena V. is,by most accounts,a really sweet gal(unlike the phony,smile-in-your-face then stab-you-in-the-back Serb)--and a SUPERB doubles player--the fact is that she has never once gone past the round of 16 at ANY WTA-level grass-court tourney.We can only speculate what activities in Ana's hotel room Sunday night caused her to fall to grass GOAT Vesnina the next day(maybe a cricket snuck into her room and wouldn't stop chirping)...yet the WTA insisted on carrying through with the laughable clay-to-grass 'advice column' from someone who hasn't made a Wimby QF since 2007.The WTA p.r. retards should realize that their desperate pro-AI propaganda efforts only make them appear LESS believable......common sense,really

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Well,I'm hoping for the best,but there's a chance that Petra sank to even sub-Ivanovic depths--and THAT's not easy to do.If Caro ever does anything like that,I'll set an abandoned building on fire to burn away the last vestiges of my WTA fanship

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Okay,in case anyone was unaware,the WTA webpage has been doing an historical perspective on all the #1-ranked players in history.The sequencing is based on when each player first achieved the ranking.So far,it has been a fine list of HOF'ers and guaranteed future inductees.The next 4 in sequence will reflect nicely on the sport,too;it'll be Cjisters,Henin,Mauresmo and Sharapova.Vika will be the final addition since Serena first became #1 long ago,thus her career summary has already been posted.Though Victoria doesn't yet have the same resume' as the legends do,she was certainly a respectable #1.

However,in between Masha and Vika,things are gonna get a bit ugly,and the WTA webpage will have to swing into Full Power Bullshit Mode to not embarrass itself more than it usually does.Frankly,they might regret not cutting off the list of #1s at year 2005.Seriously,after you've summarized the amazing career achievements of BJK,Evert,Navrat,Graf,Seles,Hingis,Serena,Venus,He nin,Sharapova...and even slightly lesser greats like Davenport,Mauresmo and Clijsters.......HOW IN THE WORLD do you try to sell Ana,JJ and Dinara?

Keep in mind that I love sweet Dinara and still miss her charmingly-dorky presence.Honestly,though,comparing those three #1s to the all-time greats is sort of like: "Okay,here we have a display of the best cars from countries all over the world.From the UK,the impeccable Rolls Royce...from Italy,the incomparable Ferrari...from Germany,the nonpareil Porsche..........and,from the auto assembly lines in Sarajevo...the Yugo."

Granted,Caroline hasn't won a Slam yet,but her longevity at #1,combined with her Premier title and overall tournament count(not to mention that,in theory at least,she's capable and young enough to add a Slam crown) mean that she won't fall into that laughable OOPS! category like the other 3 currently do......Anyway,I found that enormous contrast between #1s quite humorous and I imagine that others will,too

Caro could be out of the top 100 and she'd probably still be general messages most hated player. So disgusted.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Your mindset is totally out of whack,Protoss;if Caroline were badmouthed by a bunch of child pornographers,would THAT bother you??

It's like I've tried to explain to you other posters on many other occasions.When you're hated by lowlifes,it's usually a compliment in disguise.If they PRAISE you,it's because you're scummy like they are,and that's an indictment of your character.I'd actually feel worse if they DID like Caroline in GM

Well, he's in his thirties and still living out Star Wars fantasies, so I wouldn't expect any sudden changes if I were you.Personally, though, I don't think that he's that annoying anymore......now that he has an off-topic thread where he can put his point-by-point Federer live scores updates

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

I saw World War Z tonight and thought it was pretty cool.

My favorite zombie movie is the original Dawn of the Dead. The 2004 remake was pretty good to my surprise.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

The problem with zombie movies is the cement-truck-sized holes in logic and common sense, even when you cede a certain amount of artistic license. Given that Brad Jolie was in this one, I can't imagine that this one was any more intelligent.

The Brits, however, gave us a humorous offering with 'Shawn of the Dead' that my brother invited me to see a few years back, and we both really enjoyed that one
