The loyal Poopsters may remember a while back when we railed against NBC for not showing live tennis during the French Open. Ya know, this being the 21st century and all. We were pretty sure they’d get it figured out by Wimbledon, since ya know, it’s the 21st century and all.

We turn on NBC and what do we get? Tommy Friggin’ Haas vs. Novak Friggin’ Djokovic. Yep, a match that ended hours before, not the match that was going on right that second.
We give up. Here’s a shot of Mrs. Roddick.
