And, I admire your stamina – I saw you tell the same story over and over again to anyone who would listen, throughout the days.

What’s next? Champions’ league final in SL? 😉

For your enjoyment and delight here are three minutes of exploration, including glimpses of Todd Martin, Luke Jensen, John Inverdale, Tracy Austin, Pat Cash and some dudes from Fox (if you know who they are, go ahead and tag the video).
