* Hello? Michael Jackson has passed, media people, let it go.

* Finally, is anyone following the U.S. Open besides my family and me? I mean, there are amazing athletes from all over the world playing tennis at tip top levels without steroids or scandal. Class acts. For me it's way more impressive than March Madness, the Super Bowl, or the World Series.
