Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Peoplesforum - huge number of people used it and nobody would give them money. They'd be saying they would go under if they couldn't get $200 and after three days they'd only have raised $23. It's the unusual internet problem of people not wanting to pay for something they think they should get for free. (Ask news websites about this..)

That's funny, Irma. I just dug out the google groups link and it reminded me of Max (Calimero!). What a Grafophile! And tireless poker of Seles fans. I think he was banned from the WTAworld boards for the latter, wasn't he?

Anyway for your entertainment, here's the link for the old google groups Graf board Amy Cottrell ran. It died off for some reason the last few years but if you scroll through the first five or six pages, you'll get to the part where it was still going - and there are many pages before that.... Amy used to repost a lot of old articles on the anniversary of an event (GS win for example) or some other point of interest, so there are lots of articles from long long ago too. I think some stuff has somehow been lost.

For poking (not stabbing!) Seles fans?
That is possible???

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Why a "volume 2" thread?

I liked the old one!

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

There's a certain amount of posts allowed in each thread, so you have volumes. The first volume is still there and you can go and read the posts, but you can't post

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I tried to post in the old one, but I couldn't. I don't know if this is a good idea because if we don't post there anymore it will disappear soon. Unless we finally get a forum only for Steffi. What did Calimero do to get banned? I found his post on derkeiler, but I don't like that forum too much, it's all about insulting.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

i watched 1999 Winbledon semi-final again, after the AO final tonight. everytime watching a GS final let me miss steffi's match.

poems say "物是人非"(things remain, only people changes)and "自古名将如美人,不教人间见白头"(all heroes, the same as beauties, dont let people see their grey hair), thats just how i feel now.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

AO's ending, Olympics coming up, here's a funny link in a Lisa Dillman article about the gold medalist snowboarder, Shaun White, on snowboarding with Graf and Agassi:

"You know what, he's gonna hate me, but Steffi was almost better," White said. "She was good, man. She was good."
