If only I could stay away from the Internets

I slept in today, as I would do every day being that I go to sleep at 2 or 3am on the average night, but it’s Sunday and so I can. Of course, as everyone must know, it’s the day of the Wimbledon final, which begins on British, five hour ahead, time. Neither Federer nor Nadal care very much about my sleeping habits and the tournament director didn’t consult me either. This is where TiVo comes in. Of course, I avoid all my news and sports feeds and hope for the best. But around a certain time, my stats started to look like the below. Sure, I could have guessed who won anyway, but it didn’t occur to me to stay away from my referer stats, even if it were humanly possible for me to do so. Oh well. It’s still a great match.



ETA: It was a fantastic match! I can’t remember the last time a Federer match went to five sets. But in the end, one guy was just more feder than the other.

Heh heh, as a purely private joke (I admit to a lot of those, being the geek I am), I asked my husband yesterday, during the Venus match, “Is Roger Federer Jewish?” He did not understand why I was grinning as he answered, “no, I don’t think so…”

Ha! Perhaps he decided to Google it today.

Still no Federererer searches?
