98933596 Mornin', everyone. Like most of you, I plan to get a good dose of Roland Garros today, so I'm staying at home where I can watch the tournament on an HD-capable flat-screen TV.

The box at the office is pretty old, and I'm sick of scouring the trash pail to find enough aluminum foil to ball up add to the rabbit ears in order to improve reception. Okay, so I exaggerate. But it's safe to say that my enjoyment of the game is greatly enhanced when I can actually see the ball on the screen.

I also wanted to give y'all a place to chat and call matches, so I'm going to get this posted quick and keep my powder dry for more substantial thoughts on the events in Paris later this afternoon. How about the Michael Yani/Lukas Lacko match, the one that tied the record for most games played (71) at Roland Garros since they went to the tiebreaker in 1973?

Three tiebreakers and 12-10 in the fifth; that's good enough to call this match the official "kick-off" classic for this year.

Enjoy. . .

-- Pete
