Tennis Players Can Be Cheeky

Boy, fashion has sure changed on the tennis courts over the years.  At the French Open on the weekend, spectators took a special interest in a match involving Venus Williams and not simply because of the second seed's mastery of the game.  They had their eyes glued to her, um, wardrobe.

Turning tennis into Les Folies Bergere

Not your Venus In Blue Jeans!

But you have to admire Ms Williams.  If she loses a point she just turns the other cheek.

The players could all be nude and it would still be too boring to watch.

I'm guessing she doesn't get em-bare-assed easily.

Hell moooooog, I'll settle for Billy Jean King at this point. Even Bobby Riggs! Well, okay maybe not him.
Gag! That's disgusting. Luckily I don't watch tennis or I might like it.

Moooooog: Anna Kournikova retired? She was a "groaner" - another disturbing trend in tennis.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Yeah but she's got a really good back side, er, ah, back hand.

Don: I don't know that I wanna see Billie Jean King in that outfit. She's got a little behind...the times.

Quirks: I ass-ume you're talking about Venus. I'm behind you on that. (heh, heh) Your comment crack-ed me up!

That ain't nuthin' ought to see my outfit for playing tennis on Wii! No, on second thought, maybe you shouldn't! I do want you to continue to stay well! :)

Malisa: Yeah, I'd hate to see you make an ass of yourself! ;)

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
