ACL Fashion

Q: How do you know you have no friends or friends that don't really like you?

A: They let you walk out of the house looking like that.

Are you kidding me people? Please reevaluate your style decisions when attending a music festival in 95+ temperatures. This is not a time for you to be debuting your new fall line of calf skin boots, your latest prom attire, or the fact that you are a serious ballerina wanna be that displays her tutu any chance you get.

Gentlemen, keep your shorts on at all times please. There is no reason that I need to see that Ralph Lauren made the tighty whites that you are wearing. Thanks.

Other than that a little tips on proper attire, dress in comfortable shoes and like you are going to sit out in the desert for 3 days. If that means bathing suit tops and shorts, fine, just make sure you can make it work for you. Fellas, if that means no shirt, do your thing, just make sure that you don't mind a sun burn on your back that rivals the color of the tomato in my burger.

ACL Food

Hudson's on the Bend, I've heard of the restaurant, I've heard of how good the food is and I've heard of how $$$$ it costs. But this weekend at ACL I got to experience Hudson's on the Bend

for just $8 and it was amazing.

Check it, the line was at least 47 people long, I was number 48 in line because I had enough time to count all the people in front of me. And the entire time I was in line all I could think was... is the food worth it?

Answer: yes. I ordered the spicy chicken avocado cone drizzled in some kind of sauce with the best spicy coleslaw at the bottom of the cone that I had ever eaten. With some kind of pita bread serving as the cone it was by far the most portable meal choice at the festival. The chicken and avocado were fried golden perfection with poppy seeds crusted on the outside. The avocado was ripe and soft and tasted in season so it was perfect.

By far the best and one of the few meals that kept me coming back for more all weekend. Cross your fingers that they'll be there next year.

Kickin it old school

So VH1 just released there top 100 hip hop songs and Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" has topped the list. Now while it's a good track, I don't know if I would mark it as the best hip hop song.

First off, it really hasn't stood the test of time, rarely does it ever spin on the airwaves and ask the current generation of hip hop lovers if they've actually listened to fight the power and I think you'd be surprised at how many NO's you get.

Basically, it won for the political message that's attached to the song and I get that, good hip hop has always had a message. Whether that's to set the party off right or literally fight the power.

Rounding out the top three Sugar Hill Gang came in at 2 with "Rapper's Delight" and Dre's "Nothing but a G thang" was 3 on the list. Personally, I think Dre should have taken the top spot, but oh well.

Eagle Eyes

Straight off of dogging charges of DWI stemming from a car accident he was in during the same time as filming "Transformers 2"mid summer, Shia LaBeouf is hitting the big screen in the new movie "Eagle Eyes".

La Beouf plays Jerry Shaw a seemingly unremarkable guy that gets sucked into being part of political assassination by some women at the other end of the phone that knows his every move. Creepy! And you all think you're slick with your GPS, look what it can do to you.

Personally, I'd just plead duress in court and call it a day but when your government thinks that you're the terrorist, that might not work so well. So instead La Beouf teams up with single mom, Rachel Holloman, played by Michelle Monaghan and they team up to save their own lives.

I'm not as excited about seeing Eagle Eyes as I was for Disturbia but it's Shia and he's HOT so I'll see it either way.

"There's no question about it. Wall Street got drunk -- that's one of the reasons I asked you to turn off the TV cameras -- it got drunk and now it's got a hangover. The question is how long will it sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments." --George W. Bush, speaking at a private fundraiser, Houston, Texas, July 18, 2008

So that's what happened to Wall Street. I thought it was something more complex and economically linked to sub prime morgatges. But hey if all America needs to do to get the economy back on track is sober up wall street then we're saved. I know a great remedy for hangovers, works everytime. I wonder how much the governemnt would pay for it? humm...

Tough Break

Slow and steady wins today in sports. Nothing amazing happened. No one was majorly injured, no major upsets that I know of in the world of baseball or football. Boring, I'm yawning over here.

Some one better break something soon, a record, a leg, a losing streak, I really don't care but the sports world needs to get it together.

Not so fast

FAST FOOD! When ever I hear those words I think fatty greasy food and cringe at the idea of eating McDonald's or fried chicken! Eww!

But this weekend FAST FOOD food flipped the switch on me and my roommate introduced me to the Threadgills TO GO menu! The menu is actually the same as if you were eating in the restaurant except it only takes about 10 minutes from ordering to eating compared to the lengthier table wait.

And the food was perfect as usual! Let's see I ordered steamed asparagus and it was perfectly soft and well seasoned! Mashed potatoes that I needed a ladle to eat with because of the generous portion they provided and a dinner salad.

All of the vegetables were fresh and green. A pleasant surprise from a meal that took me 1 minute to order and only 10 minutes to wait for! It was a little longer of a wait than KFC might be but completely worth it! A bit more $$$ than McDonald's but your arteries will thank you! TRUST!

Book it!

I once heard someone ask this dumb little blond girl on a reality show what was the last book she had read and she responded, "Oh I don't read anymore, I'm in college,"! At first I was shocked, I mean really did she just say that? Those words came out of her mouth!

But i totally understand what she means, kind of, I don't read anymore either! Well at least not for fun! Everything I read these days has been assigned, passed out in class, or posted on blackboard! Fun stuff!

So to be honest the last book I read for fun was, now don't laugh at me, but it was Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn. The last in her Twilight Saga and I'm sorry to say the most disappointing!

Now at first I didn't get the fuss over these books, until I read them! And who doesn't love a good romance? And essentially that's what all the books are about love, lost love, love triangles and the gratification of love. GEEZE! That's allot of love going around!

Anyway, the last book fell short of the others. Maybe it was because Bella, the main character was no longer the girl next door! She gets married, has a baby, becomes a vampire and lives happily ever after! I mean it's sweet I'm just not there yet and in some cases don't know if I will ever be at those points in my life! Mainly the becoming a vampire one!

For me she lost the appeal that made her seem like a real person in a real relationship. Once she got pregnant and then became a vampire she lost me! Meyer's writing even slipped a little into something less than what I expected from some one that changed all the rules on vampires!

In the end parts of the book were brilliant, like the way Meyer describes Bella transforming from human to vampire, you could almost feel it too! But other times it was laughable, let's start with the fact that Bella named her baby Renesme! Anyone... ya I have no clue what that women was thinking!

But let me not knock the book with out saying that the rest of the saga was amazing! Good plots, character development and setting. The movie adaptation of the first book, Twilight, comes out Nov. 21, cross your fingers that the movie works better than the last book!

Who you gonna call... no really who are you going to call?

What could be safer than living next to a cop?

Watch it now, Samuel L. Jackson is back at it again with a new movie about how he's a BAD ASS MOTHER (SHUT YO MOUTH)! So he's a cop again, but know that no snakes are involved this time around.
He's a cop that has it out for his neighbors. I mean I get it some neighbors are loud, inconsiderate people who blare music at 4am for fun. Oh wait those are my neighbors sorry.

Anyway, the neighbors are basically screwed because who do you call when the police live next door? 411, 311... because I sure ain't calling 911!

I hope the movie lives up to the suspense of the trailer. If not I'll try to give you the 411 on why Sam might be losing his touch.

Poor Bill Gates all that money and no sense!

Has anyone seen the new ad campaign that Microsoft is pitching? Oh you have... well I'm sorry about that! Wait you haven't? Well do you have 10 minutes? No, i didn't think so!

So maybe it's not exactly 10 minutes long but it sure feels that way! The first commercial in the new campaign centers around Jerry Seinfeld running into Bill Gates at a Shoe Circus. Oh right, because that happens every day! Bill Gates at a Shoe Circus, I'm so sure! Anyway, it gets worse because Seinfeld starts helping him pick out shoes and they share a churro, it's just weird. Worst of all there is no point to this ad.

For about 5 minutes after I watched it the first time, I couldn't figure out what Microsoft was trying to tell me or sell me. Was Bill Gates teaming up with Jerry Seinfeld for a new movie? Was this an ad for Shoe Circus? Was Seinfeld seriously bored and maybe running out of money so now he's doing commercials? And didn't Bill Gates retire?

See what I mean a good ad campaign does not leave the viewer with all sorts of questions! Whatever Microsoft is pitching is bumped in at the end it still didn't make sense to me!

So TIP FOR BILL: FIRE who ever told you this was a good idea! You are seriously getting ripped off and I think Jerry is holding out on you too! He's normally funny!

Anyway, this has to be by far one of the worst ad campaigns that a company has ever put out for public consumption! With a price tag of 300 million, it's just wasteful!

"Biking through New York's boroughs in 2005, I thought about some old friends, Joe and Eileen Bailey. Though they are imaginary, I frequently talk to them." --Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), in his book Positively American.

How do these people keep their jobs? I don't get it! People in New York are well educated individuals for the most part right? So why are you electing people with imagenary friends into office? If you don't watch out he might start to think that the states problems are imagenary too! Poor guy he just needs a friend!

And in sports news....

HOUSTON, TEXAS- What's the biggest thing to hit Rice Unveristy since hurrican Ike? I don't know, maybe the Houston Texans. The Texans are scheduled to play a home game in Reliant Stadium on Oct. 5 but the staduim may not be repaired in time for kick off!

Due to this the Texans mat have to relocate to Rice University while the big dogs are hoping it won't come to that, Rice is more than qualified to host the Texans. After all they did hold a Super Bowl in 74.

If anything Houston and the people that live there need to get back on their feet and nothing says "I will survive" than Texas Football!

Running can help you in many different ways! First there are all the health factors, you know, weight loss, better heart circulation plus it's just awesome cardio all around! And if you were ever in any trouble you can just start pushing people out of the way and literally run for your life! I bet you make it out! But that's besides the point, Austin has a multitude of great places to run so here's a super short list of my favorite!

1. Town lake ( run at least a 3 mile loop and you'll fell great! I promise!)
2. St. Edward's track (it's really not that bad and is actually .3 of a mile compared to the usual quarter mile track!)

Yo quero taco ensalada

YUMM!!! Sometimes I wish I could cook but I know that I can't! So I read recipes and think about how nice it would be to make a meal like this! But there is a skillet involved and oven so I know I'm not even going to try! I'm not lazy I've just started one too many kitchen fires that the fire department has asked me to stay out of the kitchen. I've set microwave popcorn on fire for goodness sake! But if you can cook... I'll buy the ingredients if you'll cook!

1 pound ground sirloin
1 (1.25-ounce package) taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup fat-free sour cream
2/3 cup bottled salsa
8 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
4 cups (4 ounces) bite-sized baked tortilla chips
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes, drained
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 (15-ounce) can kidney or black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup sliced ripe black olives

Cook the beef in large skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Combine sour cream and salsa in a small bowl.
Combine the beef mixture, iceberg lettuce, tortilla chips, tomatoes, 1/2 cup cheese, and beans in a large bowl. Drizzle the sour cream mixture over the salad, and toss gently. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese and black olives. Serve immediately.

Kanye West arrested at airport: Now I anin't sayin the paparazzi is a gold digger but they ain't messin with no BROKE BROKE!

Another Friday means another celebrity news day! But this time I'm not so happy to report that one of my favorite rappers, that's known for his hot head let it get a little overheated at LAX.

Thursday morning Kanye West landed in LAX at around 7:51 AM and was greeted by what else but paparazzi waiting to snap a picture.

Kanye was not having it!

So what does he do... typical Kanye he overreacts! He comes at the photographer with some help from his body guard struggles with the paparazzi for the camera and smashed it to the ground! Kanye was arrested at LAX but let go on $20,000 bail! Chump change! When you got $$$! Watch it for yourself!

So what do we think?

Just a bad day at the office for Kanye or is he slowly headed to meltdown! Don't get me wrong this is not the first time that a star has been caught on camera attacking a photographer. Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz were caught and let's not forget a bald Briteny Spears taking an umbrella to a paparazzi's SUV not to long ago! But she's better now so all is forgive, right?

Kanye is about to release a 4th studio album this December and he needs to remember that he needs all the publicity he can get with the way albums are selling these days! He debuted his first song off his new album at the closing of the VMA's, Love Lockdown. And I loved it, it's not even a rap song... he's singing! I hope radio embraces it, for his sake!

Kanye for goodness sake keep your hands to yourself! I know your momma taught you better than that!

It's raning, It's pouring and the TV is BORING!

With the weather about to take a turn for the worst, most weekend TV programs lacking, no sporting events to attend due to that weather, and the box office servery lacking in movies I want to see... I give you my top High school movie picks!

10. Bring it on: Because who doesn't love cheerleaders on speed battling it out. AWESOME OH WOW LIKE TOTALLY FREAK ME OUT!

9. Mean Girls: This is girl world! The lying, the back stabbing, the plotting and scheming! And because I love this little piece of dialogue.

Damian: [delivering candy canes] Taylor Zimmermann, two for you. Glenn Coco? FOUR for you, Glenn Coco! You go, Glenn Coco. And uh...”Caddy" Heron. Do we have a "Caddy" Heron here? Cady: It's Cady.

Damian: Oh Cady, here you go, one for you... And none for Gretchen Wieners, bye.

8. Remember the Titans: When I think highs school, I think football and this movie makes me love everything about the game, the players, and the time period. WE ARE THE TITANS!

7. Grease: Grease is the word is the word is the word...
John Travolta, Oliva Newton John and Oh those summer nights! There's nothing better because
you're the one that I want and the worst thing I could do, is not watch this movie!

6. The Breakfast Club: The Jock, The brain, The Geek... need I go on! Classic Molly and a young Emilo are enough to keep everyone coming back for more.

5. Election: PICK FLIK! Because the democratic process has never been more fun or dirty!

4. Juno: Teenage pregnancy at it's finest. With great acting, dialouge, and the overall message of the emotional toll pregancy can have on a girl, her family and those around her it's got heart! THUNDER CATS A GO!

3. Never Been Kissed: "I'm not Josie Grossie anymore!" No you're are not Josie, you're in the "in" crowd now girl so work it with that inapropriate student/teacher relationship!

2. 10 Things I hate about you: A tribute to Heath, High School and Billy Shakespear. Pure poetry! You're just too good to be true!

"Patrick: You're gunna pay me to take out some chick?

Joey: Mmhm.

Patrick: How much?

Joey: 20 bucks.

Joey: ..fine 30.

Patrick: Well, let's think about this...we go to the movies, that's 15 bucks. We get popcorn, that's 53. And she'll want raisonettes, alright? So, we're looking at 75 bucks.

Joey: This isn't a negotiation. Take it or leave it trailer park.

Patrick: 50 bucks and we got a deal, Fabio."

1. Dazed and Confused: ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT. Filmed in Austin, stoner movie, Matt's one of the stars in a hot young cast and you know what he likes about high school girls...

"Wooderson: That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age."

Hail to the Cheifs

And in sports news, we've go the Patriots suffering a major blow with the loss of quarter back Tom Brady. Last year's NFL MVP is a foundation block of the Patriots team both on and off the the field and has left many fans (both fantasy and reality) in a panic! Brady who injured his left knee will be out for the year and has left the Patriots dangling on a thread of hope that they can sustain a winning season with out their golden boy.
Meanwhile, Bernard Pollard of the Chiefs that delivered the blow that knocked Brady out for the season has gone into hiding! I'm thinking this man would rather, "the British were coming" than all the angry Patriots fans that have it out for him!
In New York the US Open came to a close with Serena Williams winning the women's single finals and Roger Feder winning the men's final. Quiet a big upset for gold medalist and Wimbledon camp Rafael Nadal who lost to Brit Andy Murray in the men' single semi finals. Better luck next time Rafe.
Back to you in the studio Bob.

WTF happened last night?

Time for a little VMA review! Did you watch it, did you love it? Or were you seriously disappointed in the fact that Tokyo Hotel took home best new artist over Miley Cyrus! Who are these people any way and they are definitely not from Tokyo judging by the accent! UGH!

Any way, lets start with the fact that whoever produced this shin dig should be fired immediately! The camera angles were all wrong, the lighting was awful, the effects did not flow as seamlessly together as in past shows, and the venue was awful. This has got to be the smallest venue that MTV has ever hosted the VMA's in. Some back lot of paramount studios, what where they thinking? Feeling the pinch of recession? Seems like it.

The venue made me feel tiny and cramped at home on my sofa, it looked like the celebs were on top of each other and at one point I think that some of them literally were but that was more alcohol induced than space issues! ha!

So Rihanna opened the show and I just wasn't feeling it, I get it girl, we're supposed to all be in disturbia with you. However, at one point your back up band played a song by the white stripes and that totally threw me off. The costumes were decent, the singing was, as Randy would put it, "a little pitchy," but a decent performance none the less.

But the big winner of the night was Britney! Oh miss Spears rocked with her little opening skit and won 3 moon men, after being nominated 16 times in the past these were her first wins! So she's no longer the Susan Lucci of the VMA's. She's back in a big way people so pay attention, her body's fit, she's got hair that looks decent, and she kept it simple last night. With the perfunctory acceptance speech: god, family, fans. Loved it! Brit Brit I'm so proud of you! Oh and she was styled perfectly, some one in her camp deserves a raise!

Ok now on to this Russell Brand character that I LOVE! Please marry me because you are hilarious! He was funny and a bit controversial from start to finish! For starters, he comes right out and asks every one in America to vote Barack Obama president for the sake of our country! But it was his views on the Jonas Brothers purity that had me rolling on the floor laughing! He basically called them idiots because they could sleep with any girl they wanted and choose to wear purity rings instead and remain "pure". Whatever that means! Anyway, he was funny and had to assure the audience that he was famous, because like I said he's a nobody in the US but major in the UK, according to him!

Little Wayne and T- Pain with a little help from Leona Lewis delivered the best performance of the night! Sorry Jonas Brothers, you're great but a little too predictable, with all the 12 year old girls in the background dying to strip you of those purity rings, I'm sure!

Kanye closed the show and it was crunk! And my man had a huge audience to preform to this time so I don't want to hear any complaints! I also loved his wardrobe, tailored powder blue suit faintly pinned striped with a heart in lights over his chest but then again it's Kanye and he rarely disappoints in the fashion section.

And of course it ended with the two stars of the night riding away together into the sunset. Brand grabbed Britney and stuck her on the back of a golf cart and hauled her off some where! It was priceless!

Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my!

Phobia: a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.

Now we all have our fears but the names that doctors have given phobias are amazing! Where do they get these names, I’m thinking they’re a mix of Latin and doctor speak so that’s interesting. Here’s a list of my top 10 favorite phobias and maybe your phobia will make the list!

1. Aurophobia- Fear of gold: What? How can anyone be afraid of gold? Find me at least two people who have this fear and I’m sure a trip to Tiffany’s could cure it!

2. Bacteriophobia- Fear of bacteria: Totally understandably, this is why so much of the population carries around hand sanitizer all the time and we all know it only kills 99.9% of germs!

3. Zoophobia- Fear of animals: Ha ha! Fear of animals, what like dogs and cats? That I’ll never really understand but fear of lions and tigers and bears! Oh my!

4. Verbophobia- Fear of words: CAUTION: please do not continue reading if this happens to be one of your fears

5. Urophobia- Fear of urine or urinating: What do these people do when they have to go to the restroom? Honestly now…. Tell me this one is a joke!

6. Triskaidekaphobia- Fear of the number 13: This is a favorite purely for the name, try saying this five times fast! Bet you have a little trouble with that!

7. Nosocomephobia- Fear of hospitals: Because I totally have this fear and it sucks! It’s just that hospitals are so final, it’s just very “once you check in you may never check out!!!” Makes me nervous!

8. Hobophobia- Fear of bums or beggars: Because living in Austin will either enhance or cure this phobia

9. Osmophobia or Osphresiophobia- Fear of smells or odors: I actually knew a girl that had this phobia. She was afraid of the smell of oranges! So just for kicks I would bring one in my lunch to school everyday to watch her freak out! Needless to say she stopped sitting at our lunch table, which was the plan from day one!

10. Batophobia- Fear of heights or being close to high buildings: Because this is the biggest fear of my life! I hate heights! We should all be on the ground where we belong! Not up in the air dangling out of machines! It’s not natural! I even hate second and third story buildings. They just make me uncomfortable in the extreme!

That's right ladies and gentlemen that wondrous time of year is once again thrust upon us in the hopes of bringing joy and happiness to our lives! Heck no I'm not talking about the Christmas season if you were confused, I'm talking about the VMA's!!!!

That's right this Sunday night MTV will be rolling out the (insert color choice here because God knows what MTV will do this year) carpet that will be packed to the max with celebrities from all areas of the biz! Of course you'll have your music super stars in attendance, but Hollywood's hottest always come out and this year I'm just gushing to see if Phelps makes an appearance (cross your fingers).

The buzz on the VMA's this year is ten fold bigger than what it was last year and for a very good reason!

First off Kanye West is supposed to be closing the show with a performance! Humm I remember it like it was only last year that Kanye promised never to attend, preform, or even acknowledge the VMA's after he felt he got shafted at the awards. I mean his performance wasn't even on the main stage! Oh wait that was last year! So I'm guessing either the money was right or home boy has a serious case of amnesia. Either way I love it!

Second, MTV hired this no name to most of the American public to host the show. All I know about the guy is his name is Russell Brand and from what I've seen of the promo clips he seems really funny! So hopefully he delivers.

Then, miss Britney Spears and MRS. Christina Aguilera are both going to be taking the stage this year, not sure if either one is preforming but cross your fingers that some one talks Brit into giving us a song! After last years disaster of a performance I'm dying to see what the girls been up to with all her free time without the kids!

AND... cue the screams of 12 year old girls everywhere, the JONAS BROTHERS are preforming! The cutest threesome of brothers since Hanson was hot are Disney's main money makers, since Miley took her top off! But honestly, should a 12 year old be watching the VMA's? Doesn't matter they will anyway because the Jo Bros are going to be there! They've put on a great show the last two times I've seen them live so I'm hoping the deliver bigger and better than usual! Maybe Kevin and Nick could set Joe on fire- so he's really Burnin Up!

So tune in Sunday night at 8pm sharp! However, you need to watch all day, there's always pre show coverage and interviews so keep it locked on MTV! Because don't we all want to see who falls, who needs to fire their stylist, and who walks away with a moon man!

What ever happened to little bunny foo foo?

Busy weekend at the box office but sadly I didn't get to see COLLEGE yet, but no worries it will happen I promise! If I have to go by myself I'm going to see that darn movie!

Anyway, I saw something with much more pink, scantly clad girls, and very cute boys! Wait that does kind of sound like COLLEGE doesn't it? Oh did I mention that this movie had playboy bunnies! That's right I saw THE HOUSE BUNNY and it was hilarious slap your knees, clap your hands funny! With a hint of a moral compass but not enough to interfere with my fun!

Imagine combining LEGALLY BLOND 1 and 2 while adding a dash of THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS, with a table spoon of SEX IN THE CITY and 3 cups of the GIRLS NEXT DOOR and a pinch of Hef and you've got it!

The comedy in the movie was actually really witty and delivered on point by the lead Anna Farris, who you might be used to seeing in the SCREAM movies. She was price less as the clue less and naive but completely lovable Shelly. The former play boy bunny kicked out of the mansion in a back handed move from a up and coming bunny. With no place to live Shelly takes refuge at the Zeta house to the biggest group of misfit sorority girls that I have ever seen! But each of these social out casts brings an element of what it is like to be a girl in college plagued with insecurities but proves that those should never stop you from getting what you want!

Ok so it's cheesy and a little cliche but what isn't these days? It is still a fun watch and I promise if you don't leave having laughed at least once, I'll buy your ticket back from you... on second thought maybe not!

Anyway, go check out THE HOUSE BUNNY, ladies it's a cute feel good movies that you can see with the girls and fellas hello PLAY BOY BUNNIES!

7. she has 5 children all together
8. eloped with her high school sweet heart
9. used to hunt moose with her dad
10. she's only 44 years old!!!

Geeze I hope CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS and the other networks put out some information on where she stands on the issues and not just her personal life. Not that I didn't look into that for myself, it's just that I know most people won't. I didn't hear this much about Joe Biden's personal life when he was nominated for VP on the democratic ticket. There was more coverage on what he's done as a senator than a person. What is the media trying to tell me... I wonder.

40- LOVE

There's nothing quiet like sibling rivalry to get people interested in the emotional roller coaster that sports can pull from both the fans and the players. In tennis perhaps there are no more famous siblings than the duo of sisters from California that captivate audience from Wimbledon to the French Open and most often on center court.

Venus and Serena Williams were originally coached in the sport of tennis by there father and since their early years of playing have developed into fierce competition both off and on the court. Intimidating other players with their competitive edge on the court combined with an unparalleled passion and commitment to every stroke as if it was the last game of tennis they would ever have the privilege to play (on most days).

With gold medals from Sydney and Beijing and major tennis titles under their belts you would think these sisters would have conquered the tennis world and be looking forward to early retirement. Hardly the case for such motivated role models that do not fit the conventional standards of what a tennis player has looked and acted like in the past.

On any given days these impressive women can be found bowing before royalty in the center court at Wimbledon, coaching the potential models of America's Next Top Model, or working on Serena's clothing line Aneres (Serena spelled backwards). They are not just impressive athletes but a forced to be reckoned with both on and off the court.

So it always disappoints me when it has to be one or the other sister that wins in a tournament. Disappoints but rarely surprises. With the level of skill and competitive edge the sisters have been gaining back on the tennis circuit it is an all too familiar scene of previous major tournaments to watch the sisters glare back at one another with a thin green net separating siblings from victory and defeat.

Tomorrow night at 7 pm eastern time Venus and Serena will take the court in New York City as sisters and opponents in The US OPENS women's singles quarter finals. And at the end of the match one of the sisters will walk away with a spot in the finals and the other will walk away to the sidelines to cheer on her sister. But in a match like this you have to wonder if there really will be any winner.
