    John Isner is Iron Man!!!!!

    42-42 right now and this is ridiculous.

    5+ hrs of tennis just today.

    In 2 hrs this could go into day 3.

    C'Mon John, win Wimbeldon!!!!!!!!

    This is on the verge of surpassing the longest baseball game ever which was a AAA game.

    The longest hockey game wasn't close - just under 3 hours

    Isner's flight to Europe was 8:20 which is where the length of the match is currently.

    The score in the 5th set is the same as the odds for who is going to win the match at this point. It's 50-50.
    Forced patriotism is an oxymoron.

    A government leader proclaiming that citizens have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or else they shouldn't be in the country sounds more like a mandated decree from a totalitarian dictator like Kim Jong Un rather than the leader of the Free World.

    Our ability to peacefully protest is a fundamental American right, and any attempt by our government to squash this freedom is what is truly dishonoring the liberty that our Star Spangled Banner symbolizes.

    This Mahut guy is something. He's the energizer bunny running down impossible shots. Isner looks worn, but this Mahut guy looks fresh.

    But Mahut can't handle Isner's serve.

    But Isner seems to tired to break Mahut's serve even though it's not that spectacular.

    Some announcer is the biggest douche ever and keeps saying the dumbest things, but some woman keeps correcting him.

    Like, "Wow, these guys aren't even fist pumping or celebrating"

    Then she says "cause they're too tired"

    or like "This is Old School tennis"

    Then she says "No it isn't. No Old School Game went this long. This is like all time school."

    Potty break at 58-58. The winner is now guaranteed to hit at least 60.
