Wimbledon 2018 Update: Quarterfinal highlights and observations (Men’s Singles) (click on post for audio)

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • A strong, silent type is again the semis, and to the surprise of most, it’s Kevin Anderson, not Federer, who falls apart uncharacteristically when he had the match seemingly in hand
  • Isner finally breaks through to the final four in a major way, outlasting Raonic in a withering Wednesday slugfest
  • Nadal’s pressure is too much for an exhausted del Potro, who buckles and breaks in five
  • Djokovic seems to have found his niche, successfully playing off friction with the crowd and the chair to overpower Nish.

World Cupdate 2018:

  • England’s Harry Houdini act comes to a crashing halt, as they fail to put away Croatia and are made to pay in extra time. The Brits started well, but did not take advantage of a number of opportunities to put the game out of reach, and when they took the foot of, or ran out of, gas in the 2nd half, their ever resilient opponents just kept coming.

MLB Update:

  • No matter what unlucky Lucroy did at the plate as a hitter tonight, it was completely overshadowed by what he did behind the plate as a catcher, with one of the best impressions of Curly Howard I’ve ever seen. Hey Moe, watch out for my throw…nyuk nyuk #Athletics #Astros
  • San Diego does its usual number on the distraught Doyyers. Go figure. #Dodgers #Padres
  • St. Louis sprays a Redbird turd on the White Sox white flag. What a joke. Bring back Ozzie G. #Cardinals #WhiteSox
  • Remember, despite their pedestrian record and tepid hitting, nobody wants to play the Rays in late August or September. #Tigers #Rays
  • Pal Joey takes a big pee pee on the Indians’ collapsing tee pee. The house of cards is rapidly disintegrating in Cleveland. #Reds #Indians
  • Somewhere in heaven, Teddy Ballgame is looking down, smiling, and wishing he played with these guys…. just who on the Red Sox isn’t red hot? This is simply glorious! Hey, ChabDad, keep that seat down the first base line warm for me in August. #Rangers #RedSox
  • Another game, another occasion to pin a loss on Mickey’s lame-ass Mets … today’s honors go to De Los Santos #Phillies #Mets
  • Danny Boy Murphy climbs out of his basket, and buries the Bucs by going 4 for 4 … and the little three-game Pirate winning streak is no more… #Nationals #Pirates
  • What’s that they’re saying to Manny Machado in the Baltimore clubhouse? If you can’t join ’em, then beat ’em…. ha ha ha ha ha

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Roger continues his inexorable procession toward the finals by getting a little bit of exercise against outmanned Mannarino
  • Three jeers for Jiri, who wins his quota of about 3 meaningless games a set against the wild boar from Manacor
  • Novak sends Karen Khach backpacking to Siberia
  • Isner sends his serves whizzing by Tsitsipas, at eye popping speeds; thank god the announcer for this one didn’t have the Daffy Duck lisp

  • KA from SA emerges in one piece after a wicked tight battle with Monfils
