Rematch!

Holy smoking guns, do you know what I’ve got in store for everyone who wants to be right in the thick of a tiny bit of history? Of course you don’t, I haven’t gushed yet, lol. If you’re a boxing fan, and come on, dude, who isn’t a boxing fan? Well, you’re going to love this. As you probably know, if you are into boxing, MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada held De La Hoya and Mayweather on May, 2007 – a match in which Mayweather beat De La Hoya by split-second decision.

Well, it looks like we’re all going to get a second chance here because Oscar De La Hoya is vying to get Mayweather back in the ring in September for a rematch. Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, said the fight is “almost finalized” for either the 13th or the 20th of September, and if you’re looking to get De La Hoya/Mayweather tickets for such a closely upcoming fight, now’s the time to do it. This is shaping up to be one of the big ones, how cool would it be if you could tell your kids and grandkids that you were there? I can’t be the only one rooting for Golden Boy?

June’s Around the Corner

Well, it’s almost Wimbledon time again now that June’s creeping up the trail and, to be one hundred and fifty percent honest I’m really only looking forward to the U.S. Open. I’ve tried watching the French Open and, let me tell you, I just can’t get into it – maybe it’s just that France depresses me ( it’s the postion of the sun and how it effects the color of natural light, I know it is ), and the games should be exciting but I end up just going, “Gah!” and changing the channel.

I’d love to get my hands on some Wimbledon tournament tickets, though even if I did I know I couldn’t go – I don’t even have transportation to the Walmart that’s twenty five miles away in the next town, so how am I going to get to San Diego, CA? But I’d love a chance to go, how often do you get to see someone like Justine Henin play at the top of her game? Never, that’s how often. It would be so cool to get to see her, or Serena who’s my absolute fave – I haven’t been keeping up with it this last two years, though.

So, basically, now I’ll just be bellyaching over it forever and ever. Granted, though, Tennis really isn’t my sport though I do enjoy it. I’m really a baseball fan at heart – buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack!
