    My loved one and I were watching the Djokovic-Nadal tennis match last

    It was a long night, and towards the end I dozed off, sure that
    Djokovic would win the match.

    Just as well I woke up about half an hour before the end!

    There was Djokovic... looking and playing like the walking dead. I
    said to myself (I frequently have long discussions with myself) "That
    boy needs some energy." So I telepathically started sending him
    mega-amps of the stuff.

    And it worked. The boy started picking up almost immediately. Even the
    commentators were saying things like "Where is he getting the energy

    And that, dear readers, is how I won the Australian Open. Modesty
    demands I acknowledge that Djokovic played a small part, and I happily
    do so.

    Well done, Djokovic !!!

    I can just about understand watching cute women playing tennis, but big
    hairy, sweaty blokes, taking a girlie game so bloody seriously.....
    <shrug> just 'cos they make squillions of dollars at it.

    Sport, generally, has been going down hill since they introduced score
    keeping to women's beach volleyball, and the ball into Gaelic football.

    I usually have the opposite effect on sports, I start watching and the team
    or individual I support starts losing. I usually wait for the results now.

    Clue 1: SWMBO was in charge of the TV at the time.
    Clue 2: I nodded off.
    Clue 3: I barracked for Djokovic because SWMBO was barracking for

    Make of this what you will. You will anyway... :)

    You should not waste such talent, Darth. Start barracking for the
    team/individual you want to see get beaten. ;-)

    OK, perfectly normal reaction, under the circumstances.

    Doesn't work, no matter how many times I watch Collingwood play the only
    time the wankers lose is after I switch off.
