Two guys have been playing tennis for over 9 and 1/2 hours straight. How crazy is that?

The craziest thing is that people are still watching it.

It's tennis.

It's shit.

It's played by pussies.
They played for 8 hours. How does that make them pussy:shok:

Pretty amazing considering that today none of the two guys had a bath room break. And that they were surviving purely on the stuff they had brought with them in thier kit bags eg energy drinks and tablets:shok:

This is impressive.

All through the contest, the fighters went at each other aggressively, pounding each other with their gloves, inflicting and sustaining tremendous punishment. Yet, as the 3-min. rounds wore on, neither fighter could put the other away. The incredible bout continued far into the night, lasting over seven hours in all. When the bell sounded for the 111th round, both fighters, dazed and weary, gave up and did not come out of their corners. At that, the referee unbelievably ruled the bout "no contest." Burke never fought again. Bowen fought only one more match; he died after being knocked out in 18 rounds.
Andy Bowen and Jack Burke April 6 1893.

A pair of wimps on a tennis court isn't.

Agreed. That is impressive. A bunch of Queers on a field chasing a ball and not using their hands isn't either.

Agreed, but, 10 hours is ridiculous to play any sport.

Ugh, tennis? Really? Until they make it full contact like boxing or when it's done inside an octagon, I will never watch it. Christ, it is like watching the pendulum on a clock... back and forth... back and forth. I got better things to do in life, like watching my dog take a crap.

I'm sure that means that Jez and Stella could play for longer than them.

I mean, I assume you're both tougher than a pair of pussies, right?

finally it's over. Agreed. It was boring but something to witness. I enjoy playing tennis for fun. It's about the only thing i don't feel i'll kill myself playing at my age and physical fitness..
