The Good, The Bad, The Ugly--July 9

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly--July 9
Roger Federer is number one again.

Man, it's been awhile since I've written.   I apologize for that.  It's been a crazy couple of weeks at work with the Fourth of July and all.

Here's my Good, Bad, and Ugly from the weekend that was.

The Good

Roger Federer got back to his winning ways on Sunday, taking down his 7th Wimbledon Championship.  He beat Andy Murray in the Finals, and is now the number one player in the world.  Federer is 30 years old, which is ancient in tennis.  Is Roger Federer the best tennis player of all time?  He's been ranked number one for the same amount of weeks as Pete Sampras, and assuming he does nothing to lose that ranking this week, he'll overtake Sampras next Monday.  17 Grand Slam titles, a career Slam, and longevity.  It's certainly a legitimate debate.

The Bad

Vicente Padilla and Mark Teixeira apparently don't like each other.  Tex accused Padilla of throwing at guys on purpose, and Padilla accused Teixeira of racism.  Grow up boys.

The Ugly

Adrian Peterson was arrested over the weekend in a nightclub incident in his hometown of Houston.  He's got a clean record, so this kind of came out of the blue.  Anytime a professional athlete gets arrested, it's an ugly situation.  Peterson tweeted that the truth will come out, so we'll just have to wait and see.
