What can I say that is provocative enought to kickstart this blog? I know: Wimbledon! It is is going to be fascinating, no doubt about that. I think Sharapova will win the women's. On the men's side, I think Federer will either go out early or win. I'm predicting Djokovic vs. Murray in the final (neck way out there). Djokovic wins. But more important than any of that I think we will see some of the best tennis games ever played. There's something in the air there this year. As for myself, I have the new Babolat Aeropro, as used by Nadeal, so there'll be no stopping me. Provocative enough?
Oh, by the way, I think Nadal will win Wimbledon. Back on top.
But the level of reliability with which the Big Three have played in the last couple of years is astounding...Hence the extensive coverage the Nadal - Rosol match has received. Journalist Steve Tignor thinks it's the most remarkable Wimbledon upset since Boris Becker's early-round loss in 1987!
@ the above link: Recently, I've been following Peter Bodo's writings quite religiously. I also bought the ebook edition -- to find some connection to Mr. McGinn's latest endeavours -- of Bodo's "Courts of Babylon". (It's nicely written although there's certainly a bit of a "conservative" slant to it. The aforementioned Steve Tignor's "High Strung" about the McEnroe-Borg rivalry looks promising, too.)
Philosophy is provocative, to begin with. We, people, do not think like a philosopher does. The process is not the same.
I mean, people who did not study to be a philosopher. But we do need to understand how a philosopher thinks and why. Thats the hard part. A philosopher who is able to explain things to people who did not study philosophy.
I read your blog because I am interested in what you are interested. So, what are you interested in?
