sports, musicals and more sports!

So I have to opportunity to go see the most amazing match in tennis EVER! I bought the tickets for the semi-finals match on friday in October, and it just happened to be Nadal (my favorite!!) and Verdasco, both of Spain. The match went for over 5 hours and neither of them gave up. Nadal ended up winning and I didn't get home till 2:30 in the morning!!
Collette (my friend here with me now) got tickets for the muscial Wicked - also about 2 months ago - which happened to be playing the night of the men's finals tennis match. Wicked started at 6:30 and ended at about 9 - just in time to catch the last 3 sets of the tennis match. But, back to Wicked...it really was wicked!! The music and singing was amazing, the stage props where unbelievable and story line was intriguing!!
So, back to tennis. I met up with some friends to watch the final, which was also a very good match - Nadal played Federer - not as good as the semi's, but good! It went for over 4 hours and my man Nadal won!! YEAH!! Federer shed a few tears in his speech and it was very touching!
Time is soon to run out.....will add more later! (gotta love paying for internet by the hour!)
