I'm not excited for Wimbledon.

I'm moist.

Shame I won't be going this year, yet again, sigh.

God, I am gonna need soooo much holiday for this and the World Cup!
Noticed the other day that Wimbledon will NOT be shown on Sky in pubs and other public places (how can they differentiate between them and home users, unless pub-owners are specifically told not to show it) because most folk will only be interested in the footie. yawn

I've never been to Wimbledon but I know I'd love it - it's too far away now - and once we we were there I wouldn't want to come home until the tourney was over.
I was working in London in 1962 and 1963 and used to rush down to Wimbledon after work when I could.

You got into the standing area, known as the "sheep pen", for half-price after 5 pm (2s:6d = 12.5p).  No Henman Hill then, and it's all-seater now anyway.  The only food on offer was dodgy hotdogs, cartons of insipid tea or coffee and Wall's unimaginative plain ice-cream, but it was great.  Saw some good matches and had the privilege of watching Rod Laver play on two occasions.  The last time I went was in 1969 when I was on holiday.  Oh happy days!

I'm not a fan of attending sports events. There's always the chance of being disappointed and having to travel home in a bad mood about the result.

That's a very real possibility. I literally scan the room for something to punch if Andy's performance is not up to scratch.

Yeah, but you have to take the risk because you feel more good if they win than you feel bad if they lose.

Though I'd love to see Murray on a show court.

I watched Murray play the Southern Ape at Wimbledon last year. I was not amused when he lost.

I've got tickets for court 1 for the 23rd...which is good because I'd have been gutted if I'd been offered tickets for the semi or something which I couldn't have afforded. Also means I'll find when a women's match is on to go off looking for top seeds to get autographs off of lol
Might try going another day that week since I'm in London the whole week yay

Don't know what I'd have been like watching Wimbledon if Andy had been playing then.  There were a couple of good British male players, but they didn't exactly set the heather on fire, so I went just to appreciate the tennis, and it was quite an experience.
