Cancer sucks. Cancer sucks like war, foreclosures, and Battlefield Earth. Bea to the A and Bob to the G knew this. They might not have known it with their minds, but they knew it inchoately, like Glenn Beck knows what it's like to be black. And then there's Maude.
Whose volley was this? Oh, yes. Here's a tit-bit: Jennifer has played Layer Tennis before, squaring off against Jillian Tamaki in a contest moderated by TV's Jason Kottke. Jennifer won that hotly fought bout (later, we hear, there was a shower); will she seize the prize again this time?
Or will little Mike Monteiro, hip-hop artist, mascot for the Tijuana Tishomingos, and Hairy Houdini of the Twitters (he's locked out of his own account! he's back in!) come from behind like Bob Guccione and cha-cha his way to victory? Wait and see, grasshopper.
Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Jeffrey Zeldman.
Congratulations to Mig Reyes, Layer Tennis Season 3 Champion.
Thanks to all the players, commentators and fans who made Season Three of Layer Tennis a big success. And thanks to the crew at Goodby Silverstein & Partners and all the folks at Adobe Creative Suite for making it possible. Watch this space (or sign up for Season Tickets or follow us on Twitter) for news about some special exhibition matches being planned and about Season 4.
Cast your votes on The Championship Match. Both Finalists will receive invitations to play in the post-season tournament for Season Four.
Here's how the voting works. Decide who you'd like to declare as winner and then simply tweet their first name following a hash mark. Either #mig or #noper and, this is important, also include #lyt in that tweet. We'll leave the voting open all weekend and announce our Season Three Champion on Monday.
