Two new international trailers for Wimbledon. Peter Colt (Bettany) is an unlucky guy, scoring "love" both professionally and personally. Seeded near the bottom of the world tennis ranks, he manages to score a wild card, allowing him to play in the prestigious Wimbledon tournament. There, he meets and falls in love with American tennis star Lizzie Bradbury (Dunst). Fueled by a mixture of his newfound luck, love and on-court prowess, Peter works his way up the ranks of the tournament players and actually stands a chance of fulfilling his lifelong dream of winning the men's singles title--if his luck can just hold out.

Pete Rose headed for a very special Hall of Fame, with a large cafeteria. Pete owes the IRS a million simoleans, and is deep in debt. I guess he didn't win a lot of those bets.

When busted for distributing Swift Boat flyers at Bush-Cheney HQ, campaign spokesman Steve Schmidt came up with the best lie ever! "The Bush-Cheney campaign has nothing to do with that piece of paper. ... I don't know how it showed up at the campaign headquarters". Schmidt was known in high school for having claimed "my dog ate my homework" 37 consecutive days, a record which still stands. My personal favorite record for blatant lying was held by a woman that worked for me in the early 70s, who missed 14 days of work one year to attend her grandmother's funeral. Not 14 consecutive days, but 14 separate one-day absences spread out over a year. I concluded that her grandma was one of those New Orleans jazz musicians, and they were really puttin' on the dog for her funeral.
