US Open

For many of you, tennis is not something to get especially jazzed about. That is why What the Thunder Said is doing you a huge favor by helping you to know who to root for and get excited about at this year's Grand Slam event. So, you should cheer for American Andre Agassi and Swiss Roger Federer.

Agassi is the quintessential American - loud, brash, cocky, extremely talented and relying on reserves of talent to skip practice and party instead. Ok, that was perhaps the early Agassi. In his later years, he has also reflected a maturity and hard work coupled with heart and love for the sport that is unparalleled. Federer exhibits the yang to Agassi's yin. He is cool, collected, young, and on fire.

Keep your eye on these two. Though Agassi has a soft spot in my heart, I look to see Federer kissing the cup.


Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
