A look back...

In light of Roger Federer's recent "holy shit!" between the legs shot (I know, I know, he got knocked out anyway), I thought we could look back at the late David Foster Wallace's NY Times essay -- "Federer as Religious Experience."

Almost anyone who loves tennis and follows the men’s tour on television has, over the last few years, had what might be termed Federer Moments. These are times, as you watch the young Swiss play, when the jaw drops and eyes protrude and sounds are made that bring spouses in from other rooms to see if you’re O.K.
