Oh shit, I was eaten by the Grand Slam crushing monster I created!

I laughed my ass off in disbelief when my dad informed me this morning that Roger Federer lost to Novak Djokovic in straight sets in the Australian Open semifinals, halting Federer's amazing run of 10 consecutive Grand Slam final appearances. Really, this is an amazing feat because it gives Federer a human quality once again and begins the restoration process of the once-interesting game of men's professional tennis. Djokovic will play Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, a Frenchman, in the final on Sunday (Saturday night for Americans). Perhaps this final will signal the onset of an unpredictable year in men's tennis.
