Well, yes, I am. Kinda.
*edit* I'm back on LiveJournal at least at the moment. I'll try to actually update more, but who knows how long that resolution will last, right? But I can pretend that I'm going to be on LJ more, right?

Finally understand what he meant so long ago about disagreeing; wish I didn't.
Who cares, anyway.
Why does it even matter anyway?

Andre Agassi's tennis career is over, he's retired. I'm so sad. 60 titles, 8 Grand Slams, and a Career Slam. And he had to play Sampras, of course. Open-wise, he lost to Sampras 4 times total, 3 of those in the Final. So basically, he was runnerup to Sampras three times at the Open. The fourth time? Quarterfinals. Yeah, so deep runs always. He lost to Federer twice, once in the quarterfinals and then was runnerup. So 4 times runner up...to Sampras and Federer, probably 2 of the most dominant players ever. And that's just at the Open.
Andre's GRAND SLAM SINGLES TITLES: 8 (Wimbledon in 1992; U.S. Open in 1994 and 1999; Australian Open in 1995, 2000, 2001, 2003; French Open in 1999). One of only five men in tennis history to win all four Grand Slam tournaments.
Heck, even homestarrunner says, "What in Pete Sampras..." (Then again, homestarrunner also dresses as John McEnroe for Halloween. Or was it Decemberween? Well, whatever.) Yeah, Sampras has a record 12 titles, but not a Career Slam. Sampras never got too far on clay. Sampras is cool, but Agassi is my favorite.
He won his first title the year I was born. He's been a pro for as long as I've been alive.
There's a bit of childhood gone there...
Well, there's always Federer, who definitely rocks. And Nadal, because the game would be incomplete without a nemesis of some kind--hard courts are going to be INTERESTING. And what do you know, there are two hard court Slams, one grass, one clay. Murray's pretty cool, too. Yay for drop shots.
But I salute you, Andre Agassi. You are an awesome person.
