Hmm.. I watched some more of the US Open today, and it felt weird, very. Again, against all reason, I was totally rooting for Roddick’s opponent to win.

This was strange for two reasons. First, it’s JUST a sport. I normally never even follow, let alone take sides, let alone take sides and totally pin all hopes on that person, cheer, or get so involved that it affects me. Again, all of this happened during today’s final as I was rooting for Roddick’s opponent.

Then it hit me, it had nothing to do with the “other” guy. I didn’t even know his name.

It was just that I wanted Roddick to not win.

Again, that had nothing to do with Roddick.

For some strange reason, I think it has something to do with Mandy Moore.

Now what she’s got to do with anything either, I don’t know.

I guess I’ve got to stop analysing and learn to enjoy.. *shudder* sport.

But is this more fun?

    Thats exactly how I felt about Al Gore. Tho I’m damned if I know what Mandy Moore has to do with anything.

    I think I do. She’s very smart. Quite talented. Seems awfully sweet etc.

    Point being the issue is something about she falling for a tennis player and asking her mom to …

    No really, I don’t know what the issue is really. I just hate the guy.
