    Re: The FOSP Losers Lounge is OPEN FOR BUSINESS

    Welcome to our favorite spot of all for the French Open...the now world famous Losers Lounge. This is where you'll find everyone drowning their miseries following all those Eurodirt upsets that seem commonplace during the French. Everyone's welcome to pull up a stool, share a story, have a cocktail, and exchange snarky comments about player fashions, ridiculous scorelines, unknown teenagers who chase favorites home and the like.

    Losers Lounge Lingo - if you lose in one of the two games (mens or ladies) you are what we call here at TAT a "half cheeker". Once you've lost in both games you are fully cheeked. And if history is any indicator, we'll have some full cheekers here beginning Day 1. This game is a LOT harder than it looks.

    Our head bartender Jessie will fix you up with some of the best cocktails to the left of the Left Bank (Banque?). Ask him for something creative, and I guarantee he (or one of his able-bodied assistants) will put a smile on your face.

    And don't be surprised to see some of our nemeses favorite players, and friends of players stop by during the fortnight. Indeed, Katya Bondarenko is out of the tournament, so that gives her a lot more time to socialize. Pierre Yves Hardenne (a/k/a HFPY) has been known to swing by on occasion for shits and giggles (ours, not his). And if we are genuinely fortunate, everyone's favorite Frenchie, Tatiana Golovin might even be stopping in with a warm and friendly "bonjour" for all.

    Can I reserve a spot in advance? I'd like to find a comfy seat before the first bandwagon crash takes the place over.

    French play begins 11:00 a.m. Paris Time on Sunday. I say we have a pool on what time the first bandwagon (has to be more than 20 people) crashes.

    Don't we just need to see the order of play and check which 18-32 seed plays first?

    When our bartender, Jessie shows up, I demand my seat on the end with my festive IV drip ready to roll.

    And I'm already rocking our beloved Tati on my desktop in honor of the French!

    Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
    When they do
    I'll be right behind you

    Don't forget about the Jukebox from Hell.

    This joint needs some cheesy EuroPop. First, something en français:

    Tchiki Boum!


    And then something for all those Spanish dudes:

    Bailando con Loona

    You can sit next to me in the corner seat I reserved earlier. Good view of the flat screen TV, and not too far from the bar.

    Well, I believe that's a whole new euphemism for dancing on a table.

    May I add a little something to the jukebox from hell?

    As soon as our shipment comes in, your IV drip will be ready.

    Welcome back, kmart! Things haven't changed much. The WTA is still a red hot mess. Oh wait. So is the ATP. Crap!
