Growing up, the summer tennis season was always my favourite. Beginning with the French Open, and culminating with the U.S. Open, I spent many a lazy summer day watching the likes of Pete Sampras and Roger Federer demolish opponent after opponent. As as "adult," being in the office every day makes that less of a reality for me, so I end up watching almost no tennis at all. Case in point: I missed Federer's win over Andy Murray yesterday afternoon.
Sure I could just record it or track down a replay on the internet, but I can only watch sports live. Knowing the outcome has already been determined takes all fun away from the whole thing. Am I the only one who refuses to record sports?
