Looks like the whole Wiimbledon tournament has enough press that I couldn't even managed to register. There were three open windows to register and I tried on on wednesday one whole minute after registration opened but apparently that was one whole minute too late.
I was actually really excited about the whole thing, even though i guess there was a pretty good chance I'd get creamed in the first round by some pasty kid just crawling out of their basement after a months long Wii Tennis binge. Since you're supposed to play under a pseudonym, I was even going to be playing in homage to a childhood tennis icon as Mats Wiilander.
So now I guess I can go on Saturday and watch other folks play (or hope that perhaps I'll get one of the walk-in slots) but who knows, maybe I'd just sit around feeling jealous that I couldn't get in there and kick ass. Either way: bummer. Good thing the rest of the weekend is shaping up to be packed with really fun things, not the least of which is Midsommar in the park tomorrow.
