Sports Update

Oh, its business as usual as the NFL kicked off the season last night and the Patriots won their 35th of their last 39 games--holding Randy Moss to one big play. The Patriots are going to be a force to be reckoned with this year, as in past years. Never underestimate Bill Belicheck or Tom Brady.

If you haven't been watching a great US Open this year, I sincerely suggest you do. Agassi is in to the semi-finals after an instant classic quarterfinal with James Blake. Agassi overcame a two sets to love deficit to overcome Blake in a 5th set tiebreaker. Both players were playing in the zone and the shots were unbelievable. Agassi proved once again why he will go down as the best returner in the history of the game and Blake is playing so well his ranking should be in the low-20's to mid-teens after this US Open. An interesting tidbit--Blake would have been the first African American male in the semis since Arthur Ashe in 1972. I would have liked to have seen Blake win, but its hard to not root for the 35 year old Agassi. Up next, the suprising Robby Ginepri and the other semi is Hewitt v. Federer. Lets see if Hewitt can pull something out of his hat to throw at Federer and make it interesting.
