Agassi did crystal meth

Can someone tell me why Fox Sport Net is playing this Sampras-Wilander semi-final match over and over again? I have somewhat limited cable and every time I search for tennis to record this is all that has been coming up. And it's not a recent match. It took place in March, I believe. The commentators discuss whether Federer will surpass Sampras in Slam titles. This has already happened, so it must have been from earlier this year. I watched the match and it frankly was not worthy of constant airings. Any clues?

James Blake, on The Colbert Report

James Blake was recently on The Colbert Report. It seemed to me to come out of no where, since Blake's star has not been shining lately. But as always, good exposure for tennis.

With this. And no commentary from me is necessary.

Guga not as big as Pele

During all that press about the bid for the Olympics I heard about Pele a lot, but this is the first time I heard that Kuerten was involved. I guess the US press didn't think he was worth mentioning. Poor Kuerten. Poor tennis.

Did you know the Bryan twins make music?

Want to buy their music "album"?

Tennis mentioned on The Daily Show

Sure, it's old news, but the Daily Show was on hiatus when this happened. And they were likely itching to comment on this one. And since I like both the Daily Show and tennis so much I have to add it here.

Do other sports take doping so seriously?

Do other sports take doping this seriously? I would seriously like to know--as I don't really follow other one. But it really seems to me that tennis is incredibly strict. I remember reading an interview with Andy Roddick, and he said he was afraid to take a multivitamin for fear of what might show up in the drug screening.

Somewhat related.
