My buddy and I were joking around at work yesterday and were talking about IM'ing each other (as per usual) during the finals at the French Open. Then he goes, "We should do a shoutbox and invite people." We both laughed and then suddenly look at each other and said, "That would be kinda cool!"
So we're trying it out, and I figured I'd invite my MR friends to join in.
As you might know, this is going to be an amazing match, perhaps the best this decade -- between the world's number one and two players. Swiss World Number 1 Roger Federer is probably the greatest player of all time, and he's trying for the true Grand Slam this year (all four slams: Australian, French, Wimbledon, and US). What stands in his way is the king of clay, Spaniard Rafael Nadal, who's been breaking records all year.
This will truly be a clash of titans.
And Alex will be glad to know that my shoutbox uses Ajax. I tried it out during the women's final this am and it works great.
Hope you can make it. 9am ET, 15:00 CET; broadcast live on NBC in the USA, and Eurosport in Eurolandia. I'll also have some stream links up, but it's hard with FIFA.
