  1. Am I even a fan of tennis anymore?

    This sort of broadly speaks to why I feel I have been becoming less of a tennis fan lately.

    It's impossible to see any of it except for clip packages after the fact. I have to literally wade through seedy websites to find streaming feeds that are likely trying to give my computer STDs the whole way.

    I don't really want to pay yet another monthly subscription fee to be able to see any matches.

That's right, it's time for The 5th Annual Munchie Awards.
