Laugh

It's nice to be able to have a good laugh every now and then. I was at work until 6pm last night trying to get some stories finished, only to be looking for something to do now and feeling particularly unuseful. So I blog.

So last night I watched 'Along Came Polly'. Very funny, as always, Mr Stiller. Afterwards I watched the end of Henman versus some unseeded, unknown, 20-year-old Croatian in the Wimbledon quarterfinals. I think his name may have been Ancic. Watching him beat Henman in straight sets was almost as funny as the movie.

I shouldn't take pleasure in their pain, but the looks on the faces of those poor Britons as their Tim was thoroughly humiliated. And Tim himself, as he was broken again, and again, and again. The picture of a beaten man, resigned to the destiny of never living up to the hopes and dreams of a nation. Classic.

I crossed back to the tennis before heading to bed last night to see Hewitt had lost the first set to Federer 6-1. I can also see the humour in an Australian's humiliation, and a wry smile came across my face as I turned off the TV. It's not that I have anything in particular against the English, they're just laughably humiliated in the sporting arena more often.
