Bonus: Let's keep going with the tennis theme

If you like either tennis or good writing even a little, you could do worse than read David Foster Wallace's paean to Roger Federer, "Roger Federer as Religious Experience." Wallace's article appeared in the August 20, 2006 edition of The New York Times Magazine, but if you've been watching Federer play this year — particularly his awe-inducing comeback against Feliciano Lopez – you'll find yourself nodding as you read it this deep into September 2007.

(I've had a few David Foster Wallace moments myself, but that's a topic for another time.)
