I'll fifth that. First I read 'Andy Rooney' and got excited, hoping for few minutes of ranting. Dang.

Maybe you would have been better off posting in a sports-oriented forum? (Who's this Roddick fellow, anyway?)

Aww, no love for Andy...

My father calls him "Andy Panda". As for me, I'd love to meet Djokovic. :)

That advantage isn't to be underestimated, especially since that "big bulky paper thing" has 20 volumes spanning 21,730 pages. Also, the print version of the OED costs $900, so you can save money by subscribing, for whatever reason, you'll need the OED for less than three years. Of course, if you have the print edition, paying for the online edition is probably not worth it except in special circumstances.

And no, I don't know who Andy Roddick is. :P

http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/08/28/ ... TENNIS.php

http://www.andyroddick.com/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Roddick

Those three links should keep the uneducated busy if they care to look at who Andy Roddick is. I don't know what's scarier, the fact that even though I haven't played Tennis in over 15 years I know who he is, or the fact that he shows up in sports talk as much as he does..

I suppose having a daughter who plays tennis now, and she likes to watch all the tennis players might have something to do with it.. :mrgreen:
