You know you’re the best tennis player ever when you make the finals of every major in a year, win two of them, complete the career grand slam, and people kind of shrug their shoulders at your accomplishments. Roger Federer is amazing. Even though he didn’t win the U.S. Open, his brilliance was on display. Joe Posnanski wrote a blog post about one shot Federer hit in particular, which I watched live.

Not as fanatical as I use to be, but I still like Pearl Jam. They have a new album coming out next week. Muse just released a new album today, and a few weeks ago it was MuteMath. Some of my favorite bands all releasing new stuff at the same time.
It’s funny to me that a number of Whole Foods shoppers won’t shop there anymore because of what the Whole Foods CEO thinks about health care reform. Progressive… (click here to read more)
It’s good to be enjoying some curry fries and mayo after being away for awhile. (Recovery from being sick.) Great food, great people!
