Overdue but not forgotten

I have to apologize to two very special people -- Tinesta Rowe and Melanie Gloria. You two deserved this huge CONGRATS much sooner, so sorry about the delay, but here goes.

We're proud to have you representing Fresno State on the tennis court, and were rooting hard for you to knock off the schmucks from UCLA in the national championship doubles match. You took 'em to that decisive third set but fell short...but hey, you're both juniors! You'll get 'em next year!

Yes, I confess, I didn't go to a tennis match all year. But I vow to change that next year. And I fully believe a national championship is on the horizon! (Am I aloud to be my normal boisterous self while cheering for 'Dogs tennis...?)

Congrats again ladies, and go get 'em next year! And keep up the fantastic job Coach Simon!

Note to George Takata: I often enjoy your radio show, but heard you say the other day that this was the first time a Fresno State athlete has played for the national title since wrestler Stephen Abas won three straight in the early 2000s. Well, that's far from true good sir, try Lucia Saina and Katharina Winterhalter in 2006 and Jelena Pandzic before that. That's three other women's tennis players in just the past few years!!!
