World's next biggest Rafa fan. As you can see +tareem heath​, I'm starting him early.

Now I just need to find an infant sized racket for him to play with.

While Hewitt played a great match, I have to wonder if there was anything wrong with Delpo.  I stayed up to watch the match last night and I think I saw two backhands from DelPotro that were not slices, and a slew of double faults.

However, that's not taking anything away from Hewitt, he did well to attach the weaknesses that Delpo presented.
Lleyton Hewitt won an absorbing late-night thriller against Juan Martin Del Potro at the US Open to move into the third round.

Left wrist injury. Cannot use his backhand much. So I've heard...

Went for a hike with my wife this afternoon on Parkman Mountain at Acadia National Park.  We are fortunate enough to have a location like this about 35 minutes from our house.

+Hamid Marc Afsharieh I know that you're big into hiking, so I figured you may enjoy these shots.  Note that my dog looks like a demon with two heads in one of the photospheres.

Sounds good. I'll try to snap a few on our next hike also. It's just weather dependant and we've had a rainy June.

Busy weekend of yard work. But it's been worth it.

Put a frame up in Sara's pen so I could put in some stone. The guy who delivers it was awesome and offered to come out and deliver it this afternoon (I didn't ask, he's just awesome). So no more muddy paws after a rainy day.

Then it was moving about 2 chord of wood (front half of the lawn was covered also, but I cleaned it up). Now I only have to move another 2 chord until the splitting and stacking begin.

Overall, the point of this post is just to say I earned my beer this evening.

Just saw this guy's impersonations of Rafa, Federer, Murray and Djokovic.  The voices are very well done.

Color me impressed.

Anyone interested in an AT&T Note 2 with a cracked screen?  It still functions perfectly fine, and it looks like it simply needs a glass replacement.  

I'm looking to offload it as my wife and I don't need it (she got a Note 3 and my N5 is on its way), so I don't want to take the time to repair it.

Sorry +Eric Hansen, for $50 I'd be better off getting some speakers and throwing it in my garage to use as a Google Music machine.

Also, replacement parts are $22 on Amazon.

This is a great interview with Nadal from Charlie Rose.  

When people ask why Nadal is my favorite sportsman I should just point them to this interview.  The way he answers questions with respect to tennis, other players, and the fortune he's had in his ability to be such a great player is what makes him a spectacular role model.  It's this attitude, more than his tennis, that makes me respect Nadal.
Rafael Nadal, US Open tennis champion.

I'd love to see what +Rafael Grossmann thought of his use of Glass in the OR.  I'm excited to see more applications of Glass in medicine, and I applaud him for pushing the envelope.

Hopefully EMHS will realize the potential of utilizing this technology and make it commonplace in the hospital.

Cold and rainy day in Boston. Made for a good visit to the Museum of Science.

The segway tour was a little chilly, but it was still fun. I think everyone got cold but me, I accredit that to my layers of blubber.

Next up, dinner and beer.

I think it's safe to say that the top half of the Men's Draw is stacked pretty heavily for the French Open.  Nole has a difficult draw, and as a Nadal fan I hope he gets knocked out before the Semis. 

I was really hoping that Nadal and Djokovic wouldn't meet until the finals, because I don't know if Nadal can take Djokovic out right now.  I hope he can, but it's going to be a difficult match.

Federer shouldn't have too difficult of a time until the quarters.  But again, it's tennis.  You have to earn your way through and it only takes one bad day to throw off the draw.

Well, it depends on which Djokovic he wants and which Roger would show up.  The 2011 Federer who stopped Djokovic's streak would do well...the 2012 Federer who looked out of sorts would get demolished the way Djokovic is playing today.

So I'm watching the Azarenka vs. Stosur match right now, and the screeching is driving me insane.  

I understand grunts when hitting a heavy forehand or backhand.  I won't hold that against anyone; however when hitting a drop volley there is no reason at all to scream loud enough for me to hear you echo through the skies from thousands of miles away (this may be a slight exaggeration).

Just had to get that off of my chest.

I agree ~ I just hate muting the women grunters who do it on every shot! Ruins the match a bit!

I just ordered my tickets for Friday night.  My wife and I will be going Friday night at 10 (Gives me time for tennis beforehand).  We would have gone Wednesday but alas, work is putting a stop to that.

Out of all the movies coming out this summer, this is the one I'm most excited about.
The anticipated Star Trek movie sequel: Star Trek Into Darkness. Watch the new Star Trek trailer here! In theaters May 16, 2013.

Yoshi is the go to place for my wife and I when we are looking to have Japanese food. The flavor is always great and the food is always fresh. The staff is always friendly and helpful as well. All in all, this is one of our favorite places to visit when in the mood to dine out.

The Omni Parker House Hotel was very well located for a trip into the Theater District as well as the Museum of Science. There are plenty of places to eat around, as well as a conveniently located T stop about a block away. The room was a little small, which is to be expected in the middle of the city. However the bed was also in need of replacement, as it sloped to one side and did not provide much back support. There is also a $10 charge per night if you want to use the hotel's wifi/cable internet access. I can not comment on the quality of the access as I did not bother.

I will typically order take-out from China Harbor, so I can not say how the service is in the restaurant. However, the food is decent for a decent price. I have never had a bad experience with their food, but I have also never been particularly blown away by it either.

It's a decent bar, but a mediocre restaurant. The food is somewhat lacking and is over priced. The setting is nice, along the river with a lot of open space. Service is often slow.

The food was great, and prepared very quickly during my visit. All of the food was well prepared and had great flavor for a price that was a little lower than you'd expect from a Japanese restaurant in the middle of Boston. Being located about a half a block up Beacon Street from the Omni Parker House was also a plus. It made for a great dinner within easy walking distance from our hotel.

The burritos are awesome and have fresh organic ingredients. The price range is not bad for the quality food. There are also smoothies and coffee products which I have not yet tried. I am definitely looking forward to coming back here.

I have always been impressed with the food and atmosphere. This is not a restaurant that you will be in and out quickly, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it. This is the go to restaurant for my family on special occasions.
