Strawberries and Cream and Tennis
I love Wimbledon. It maybe my favorite tournament. The tradition. The grass. The Royal Box. The all white clothes. The Strawberries and Cream. The PIMMS! It just oozes class. I also have a lot of fond memories. When I'm watching it on TV, I try to look at the stands and see if I can find where I sat on Centre Court. I find this little tidbit about Wimbledon the funniest thing. When you think of Wimbledon, you think Strawberries and Cream, the Duchess of Kent and all that stuff but you see those fans in the front rows on Centre and Court 1? Yeah, well, they all camped out last night on the pavement to get those tickets. They haven't showered. Many of them probably forgot their toothbrush or comb and many of more them are probably wearing the same clothes they wore last night. How funny is that? And so Wimbledon is just a perfect mix of the Upper and Lower classes all cheering for Andy Murray. *lol* That maybe why I really love Wimbledon. Where else in the world does that happen? There is no way you could camp overnight in Queens to see the US Open overnight and survive. No Way! So, I'm telling you to watch it. Watch WIMBLEDON! It's on ESPN2. NBC on the weekends and for the lucky few, The Tennis Channel at night.
