I learned playing poker just watching it on TV and playing it on my computer. But now because of the net, poker can be played online. Playing poker online is great.

Another thing is the convenience of not having to travel to your friends house or a casino to play.

Juan Martin del Potro dethroned five-time defending champion Roger Federer 3-6, 7-6 (7/5), 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 to capture the US Open on Monday, ending an era to win in his first Grand Slam final.

Having to watch it last night I thought it would be a cruise for world no. 1 Federer after cruising 3-6 in the first set, but at the middle of the second set you could feel the intensity of del Potro rising. Federer was two points from taking the second set in the 10th game before Del Potro fought back to break and took the tie-break to equalize.

"That one cost me the match maybe," Federer said. "I thought I had him under control for the first two sets. I was in a great position. If I had won that second set, I think I would have come through, but I didn't."

Federer struggled with his first-serve percentage, hitting only 50 percent for the match to 65 percent for Del Potro and converting only 5-of-22 break chances.

Del Potro fired 37 forehand winners, 17 more than Federer.

The loss ended Federer's 40 straight wins at Flushing Meadows and the quest to become the first person to win six straight titles at America's Grand Slam since Bill Tilden in the 1920s.

Dominique Wilkins, though slowed down by the passing years, lead the NBA Generations team to a 109-86 beat down of the PBA All Star in Manila, Philippines.

Dominique Wilkins who is know to all as "The Human Highlight Film" lead the NBA Generations team with 28 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 assist. While the PBA All Star was led by "The Triggerman" Allan Caidic with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting in the opening quarter with Patrimonio sharing nine points and eight rebounds and Magsanoc adding eight points and three assists.

The PBA starting five of Caidic, Patrimonio, Wynne Arboleda, Arwind Santos and Asi Taulava held their own against Wilkins, Horry, Divac, Hardaway and Billy Thomas in a free-wheeling contest early on, giving the host team a 26-25 edge in the first quarter.

The fans had great fun then specially with Patrimonio knocking down a trey in his first attempt then Caidic taking over, rifling in five straight triples.

The Filipinos kept the game close through the second quarter before the Americans stepped up the tempo and slowly pulled away in the match.

Robert Horry, Tim Hardaway and Vlade Divac displayed flashes of brilliance as their contributions in the game serving as the Manila leg final tour of the NBA legends Asian tour which had its initial stop in Korea a week ago.

Horry converted two of three three-point attempts and finished with 10 points, five rebounds and four assists, Hardaway got eight assists, seven points, and four rebounds while Divac put in eight rebounds, six points and two assists.

“I had a fun time. I enjoyed it. It’s been more than 10 years since I played in a game with a real competitive atmosphere,” said Wilkins

I think it was uncalled for, although the game was highly fought by the two ladies, intensities are at a high level. But she should not have given to her emotion's. There are plenty of kids and players that look up to her.

Serena Williams’ US Open title defense ended in bizarre, ugly fashion Saturday night, when she was penalized a point on match point after yelling and shaking her racket in the direction of an official who called a foot fault.

Williams lost to unseeded, unranked Kim Clijsters of Belgium, 6-4, 7-5, in a taut semifinal.

US Open tournament referee Brian Earley said in a statement Sunday that Williams has been levied the maximum possible fine for unsportsmanlike conduct, $10,000, plus a $500-fine for racquet abuse.

The fine is a mere pittance, even at maximum strength, since Williams received 375,000-dollar for her semifinal run at Flushing Meadows, her matches among the top drawing cards for ticket buyers and television viewers.

US television commentator Pam Shriver called for 11-time Grand Slam champion Williams to apologize for threatening the woman who called a foot fault upon the reigning champion to give Clijsters two match points.

Williams reacted by walked toward the woman who made the call, waving her racquet before her, and launching into a profanity-tinged tirade that led to an unsportsmanlike conduct violation.

Because Williams had already received a warning after smashing her racquet following the last point of the first set, the penalty point she was assessed handed Clijsters a berth in Sunday's final.

Williams will return to Arthur Ashe Stadium on Monday afternoon to join her sister Venus in the US Open women's doubles final against top seeds Cara Black of Zimbabwe and American Liezel Huber.

Clijsters hadn’t competed at the US Open since winning the 2005 championship. Now she will play for her second career major title Sunday against No. 9 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark.

I just saw this on TV last night and went on to find the video on the net, luckily I found one at YouTube. Is it true or not, you make the judge for it. But i think he's just trying to psyche out Floyd Mayweather Jr. just maybe trying to get a psychological edge against your opponent by drinking his own urine, he talks about drinking his own urine cause he don't want to waste all those vitamins he took that might come out of his urine, so why not drink it back again. Hmmm makes sense, but all i know is urine is an aqueous solution of approximately 95% water, with the remaining percentages being metabolic wastes such as urea , dissolved salts, and organic compounds.

Marquez isn't even the only world-class fighter who drinks urine; UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida also drinks his own urine. If it's good enough for Marquez and Machida, it's probably worth trying for other pro athletes.

Care to try it? If its me hell no hahahaha.

Its nice to see Efren Reyes at the limelight again, after his win in Davao in the Manny Villar Cup. He followed it win a win again but this time with the help of fellow Filipino Francisco Bustamante. It was a great game, i saw it live at cable. It was the duo second World Cup of Pool title after edging out Germany in an exciting final match on Sunday.

A loud roar reverberated throughout the jampacked SM City North Annex when Reyes pocketed the 9 ball to clinch the win for the Filipino pool legends, who reclaimed the crown they first won in 2006.

“Although we are old, we are still winning,” said Bustamante

“Thank you, our countrymen, for your support,” Reyes said

They clinched the $60,000 purse in the four-day tournament and ended a string of disappointing results in the past two years.

Houston Rockets fans hold your breath..Houston Rockets center Yao Ming might be able to recover from surgery on his broken left foot and play for the Rockets this coming season.

Daryl Morey, the Rockets general manager told ESPN that Yao is improving and that his career, once thought to be in jeopardy from the injury, is no longer at risk, the sport's network website reported.

"Yao Ming is progressing well" Morey told ESPN. "I don't think that (Yao never playing again) is something that will happen, based on what I'm hearing from the doctor's.

"They do know that the bone will heal and he'll get back on it and they have not actually ruled out a return this season. I think that's less likely than likely, but they haven't ruled it out."

( I just hope Yao do return, I just hate to see a good player like Yao not being able to play. Hope he returns 100% healthy)
