Moment of Glory by the Scorpions
With the recent plaudits still coming in for last Sunday’s Wimbledon Men’s final and that incredibly long 5th set (it was longer than most Soap Opera series), the most important championship in tennis takes down memory lane. I remembered all those years ago, 22 to be exact when I sat in front of the tv screen and watch Pat Cash climb the stands to go and hug his family after he’d won the 1987 title.
clash of the titans dvd From that year onwards I was a tennis fan and Wimbledon fascinated me. The history, the traditions, the green grass, the legends, the glamour….but most importantly it was the trophy! Ladies & gentlemen, the trophy that they give to the men’s single winner at the All England Championships is hands down, the most beautiful & classy looking trophy ins sports that there is. Just look at it.
I must say that it is best displayed in sunlight to showcase it in all it’s spendor and the gold contracts brilliants in the sunlight and the green grass. It was the trophy that I dreamt of winning and holding from the age of 11. It still holds a magical effect over me, although I don’t watch tennis anymore and haven’t since the last 8 or 9 years. It really is special.
I didn’t see this coming but it looks like a good deal for some slick offense and could get us 20+ goals a season. Ottawa Senators general manager, Bryan Murray, gave the slick Russian winger a US$10-million, two-year deal Monday, believing Kovalev will bring a dimension to his team that was sorely lacking last season. A 16-year NHL veteran, Kovalev spent the past six seasons with the Canadiens and in 78 games last season he led the team with 26 goals and 65 points.
Prior to Montreal, Kovalev spent time with the New York Rangers, helping them win the Stanley Cup in 1994, and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Kovalev is the top-six forward Murray was looking to acquire and despite a rally of about 100 people outside the Bell Centre on Sunday begging the Habs to keep Kovalev, the Senators were able to make the deal.
