Andy Murray winning Wimbledon
Seemingly inevitable in retrospect, but nerve-wracking to sit through that last game, which could so easily have swung the match the other way. (Had Murray NOT taken it - and he very nearly didn't - the set would have gone to tie-break, which Djokovic could well have won, and then we'd have been looking at a fourth and perhaps a fifth set. And though he was two sets down, Djokovic could have come back from that position; Murray, like Federer, has done so many times.)
Vincent and Flavia show tells a whole evening's story through variety after variety of tango. Astonishing dancing, amazing physique, and a very good live band (Tango Siempre). You know when you've been tangoed - and we were.
Send in the Idiots
The author visits five of his school classmates, all of them on the autistic spectrum but who have found their own ways of functioning socially to a high degree (one is a speech writer for the American Democratic Party). Beautifully written and fascinating for what it shows about how not only autistic people but all of us manage to cope with each other - the chief difference being that autistic people have to work it out very slowly and painfully.
