Morning coffee... Rafael Nadal is pretty good at tennis

Because thats what Roger Federer got after Rafael Nadal beat him 7-5, 7-6 (3), 5-7, 6-1 in the finals. That ties him with Bjorn Borg for the most French Open titles with six and he has 10 overall.

It's also the fourth time these two players have matched up in the French Open Finals, but really does that come as a shock to anyone?

I will say this about the French Open. I understand that the world doesn't revolve around America (yes it does) and a sport shouldn't make a special consideration just for a specific country but why the heck should I have to get up early in the morning to watch the French Open Finals? I understand that the globalization of the sport has a certain affect on things, but they should try to accommodate perhaps the largest consumer market on earth.

I mean you're not going to see baseball, basketball or football play a final at seven in the morning. Tennis is an awesome sport, but when they have things like this happen, it hurts things.

And with that, here are headlines...

Did you know that Vancouver has a 2-0 lead in the NHL Finals
I didn't either, but that Canucks have something going. Perhaps the Northwest could get a championship!

Shin-Shoo says DUI affecting his performance for the Cleveland Indians
Who knew that hard drinking would hurt your performance in athletics?

Johnny Bench chews out Buster Posey for having season ending injury, also chews out the San Diego Chicken
Perhaps the greatest video of vehicular responsibility I have ever seen.
