As was mentioned in at least one previous thread on the subject of Blake's choice in women, it is somewhat surprising that Blake seems to prefer the very typical 'famous', 'bombshell' type.
Blake's reputation as a down to Earth intellectual would seem to contradict his choices in women. While one would think that he, of all people, would prefer a non-famous, totally unknown to the public woman of strong substance, he repeatedly seems to choose just the opposite - a typical 'hollywood' type woman who is known primarily for her style and looks. It is as if he has totally bought into the 'expectation' that 'famous' men must couple with this very typical type of woman.

The more I see of Blake, the less I am impressed. He seems just as easily influenced and as superficial as the rest. Given his choice of women, he seems to believe - as do many other 'famous' people - that his identity will be defined by the type of woman who is on his arm.
If Blake is known as a down to Earth intellectual, it is only because his contemporaries are for the most part highly obnoxious morons.
Everything is relative.

Duece, sounds like you're being more superficial than Blake. Do you know anything about this woman? Have you spoken with her? Do you know her IQ, her interests? Yes, she's blond. And Blake has dated blonds before, so we can conclude he likes blonds. But she's not from Hollywood, she doesn't live in Hollywood, she doesn't work in TV or film or modelling, so her being blond doesn't make her "Hollywood." That's your interpretation. She's an athlete, like Blake, so they have that in common. That would speak in Blake's favor, against your judgement of his tastes and motives: that he's seeing someone he has something in common with, rather than for merely her looks.

The idea that Blake is a down-to-earth intellectual is one perpretrated by the media. Yes, he went to Harvard, but only for a year, and on an athletic scholarship, was it not? I think he is a thoughtful guy, and more less materialistic than some touring pros. I think he's honest, and well-spoken, and humble. But he's also been in GQ, and been voted sexiest athlete or whatever -- and as a guy in his mid '20s, a touring pro athlete, can you blame him for not dating small town librarians? There's nothing unimpressive about that to me; it doesn't detract from my respect for him.

Who says he thinks the woman on his arm defines his? And where are you getting this idea that a soccer player is "known primarily for her style and looks"?

Gugafan,

I agree with the points you make but two minor details were in error. Heather does now live in SoCal, very near LA, in Hermaso Beach. Also, she is doing TV work for ESPN and ABC. At this point neither fact makes her "Hollywood" because her main focus is playing soccer, however it should be noted that her post-soccer ambition is to do more TV work.

I think someone touched on the whole trophy girlfriend/wife idea earlier and pointed out blake's trend of going out with blondes which is interesting because why would blake be above that? he's an athlete!!! Of course he's going to look for someone who looks good on his arm.

But at least this one does seem to have more substance to her as opposed to the last one. She's an athlete like him and seems just as ambitious about her career as Blake. I met Heather Mitts once and she seemed like a nice person. Very LA, but oh well....

What the heck are you talking about.. Mitts was (is??) an extremely talented soccer player. You expect someone who is down to earth not to want to pair up with someone with similar interests (world class athlete) and fantastic looks.. How shallow are you that you would judge someone based upon their significant other. From what I have read about Heather Mitts, she's intelligent, a great athlete and looks GREAT.. I'm sure the only reason she chose Blake and Blake chose her is to define their respective identities.. What's wrong with you.

Perhaps she doesn't want enormous artificial breasts. My thought is if she did, she would have them by now. Not every woman would consider a gift certificate to a plastic surgeon to be a thoughtful gift.

Everything is relative.Arthur Miller married Marilyn Monroe. Being intelligent does'nt mean you want a bookworm for a girlfriend or wife. At the end of the day, a guy would like to date someone he finds physically attractive. You think intelligent people would'nt like to date some hot fox if they could? For most, she would'nt have to be amazingly smart, just not stupid. In any case, we know nothing about this girl. She may be smarter than you think.

First of all, who ever accused Blake of being an "intellectual"? :confused: Maybe only in your own mind? If the guy was an "intellectual", he ought to be able to think his way out of a paper bag but he often can't on the tennis court. Instead of changing his strategy (a la Federer), he usually just continues to bludgeon the ball as hard as he can until he loses.

Second of all - living, breathing men, yes, that means any man with a pulse wants a babe. Even those labeled as "intellectuals" really lusts after hot chicks. Ever notice that really smart men, most of whom are successful in their chosen fields because they're so smart, usually have hot babes as their significant others? It's the incentive for them to work so hard because it's a lot eaiser to attract a babe if you have money than if you don't. Something I guess you don't have to worry about, and I think it's safe to assume that you would never attract a hot babe in any case anyway.

Lastly, just because a woman is beautiful does not automatically mean that she's not smart. My fiancee is a case in point. She has model good looks and also has engineering degrees from MIT and graduate degrees from Stanford.

Wrong. Did you not read that link above first before commenting?

Including this excerpt?

* At each Ivy institution, however, only the Admissions Office has the authority to admit an applicant and only the Financial Aid Office has the authority to determine financial aid precisely and to notify students officially of their actual or estimated awards.

"need-based" = financial need only.

That's why the Ivies suck at most sports. It's very hard for them to get the best athletes because generally the best athletes cannot meet their academic standards. Plus, they have so many other schools throwing lots of money at them which is very hard for them to turn down.

Did you make your remark above because you graduated from an Ivy League school so you would know? No? Well, I did.

You guys don't follow women's soccer. She is on the national team, playing very well leading up to the World Cup in China this Sept. Unfortunately, she got seriously injured, torn ACL, and will miss it. She was a shoe in to be picked for the World Cup squad. She's on FSC soccer show and is an excellent defender. I have seen large chested women in the defender position, but it is better to be less endowed there when it comes to soccer.

http://www.ussoccer.com/articles/viewArticle.jsp_281935.html

She is blonde, she is beautiful, and she wants a career in front of the camera but she's also a world class athlete and I'm sure that she has endured more pain playing soccer than most of us have on the courts, including me, and I've played tennis with a broken thumb on my hitting hand. Soccer players are crazy.

As for a poster making fetish remarks on Blake's blonde preference. Since when is it a preference to prefer woman with the same color hair as your mother's. His Mom is a blonde? You mean to tell me that it is a fetish if you pick women who have the same color hair as your mother?

BTW, I've known more women who have had breast surgeries, to reduce them, rather than to enlarge them. As a matter of fact, all the women who have discussed breast surgeries with me, want to reduce them.

Blake seems to have somewhat of a history of being seen with 'trophy' women.
This current one - apparently a soccer player - has also posed for Maxim. And she wants to get into TV work. Don't tell me that she's just a humble, down to Earth girl who's not chasing fame.
If she were simply a soccer player, she'd be far more anonymous than she is.

Who in the heck are you to say who he can date and can't date. So, Heather Mills posed in Maxim. Any girl that poses in Maxim is not smart. You are by far the most sexist person I have ever come across. A girl looks good, so of course she must be stupid right. That is so stupid it is laughable.

Come on, you can't compare the two. James Blake is a top 10 player. He's top 10 out of hundreds. AJ Feely is a backup quaterback. Heck, he could be third string by the start of the season. I say going to Blake is an improvement.

Nah, AJ will be the backup.. I don't give Holcomb much of a chance given AJ's decent run a few years back when he was inserted into the starting lineup.. Not that I think that's the correct call, but it's between Feeley and Holcomb because there is no way the Eagles will cut Kolb, their first pick in the draft.

I think some people here are missing a bigger point. Heather Mitts is not getting rich playing soccer. Therefore it is in her best interest to parlay notority from soccer into whatever avenues she can get. If that means using the fact she is attractive good for her.

The other thing funny is Fed get ripped for dating Mirka (he should date someone hot) and Blake gets ripped because he only dates women that are percieved as hot. Go figure.

08-17-2007, 09:18 AM
You're right.. Use what you got. She's a world class athlete, and is very pleasant to look at -- what's the problem with trying to parlay that into a television career.. Heck, I'm a world class athlete and if I could do the same, I'd certainly try it.. Unfortunately, though, I'm not going to be challenging anyone for the People magazine sexiest man of the year award, so I had to go a different direction in life.. :D

This was at the beginning of the second set between Nadal and Monaco. She was there with what looked like her mom. I immediately told my sister it looked like soccer player Heather Mitts, but she wasn't sure until she looked her up online. Until ESPN showed her last night and said she was dating Blake, I didn't put two and two together. Obviously she was arriving on Wednesday to watch Blake play Kiefer after the Nadal/Monaco match. Just as she was going to her seat, Juan Carlos Ferrero emerged from the players lounge and followed her to the same section of seats (probably to watch Nadal). Ferrero was clearly impressed by Heather and obviously checked her out as he walked by.

I wonder if in the far reaches of the Web there is a forum called Talk Soccer and in the pro players discussion area, there is a parallel thread titled "Heather Mitt's new BF" where people are discussing Heather Mitt's "type". "She only goes after atheletic guys who can't quite make it to the top of their sport... First, AJ Feely is not starting QB material and now Blake who can't beat Nadal or Fed" :-)

Probably!!

Start here ...
Big Soccer USA Women (http://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=36)

They are both good-looking, college-educated professional athletes who are good enough to play for their national teams, but who are not at the very tip-top of their sports. They are sufficiently attractive and well-spoken that they are sought out by advertisers and promoters and the like. Seems like a perfect fit to me.

--I was just really curious about his seeming preference towards one specific "type" of woman. And as for the above, I suppose one can only really take it with a grain of salt. But I also just find it interesting in a nerdy sociological sense why as a biracial individual he only seems to be attracted to one half of his ethnicity than the other.

there was no "Myskina thing" other than her saying she had a crush on him. that's like an atp player saying they think sharapova is hot, doesn't mean there is any relationship. doubt they've even spent 5 minutes together.

This is true, your social spaces are an influence as well, and as for Black friends...hm....good point. LOL! But as someone who has grown up in much the same environments, I think its positive to have a strong group of friends, but at the same time...there are too many beautiful people of different complexions to stick to just one type. ;)

Yeah, I can definitely sympathize with Black women on that score, however we can't be too touchy whenever a Black man (or however Blake defines himself) dates a woman of another race. One of the reasons it touches a cord so much is that he prefers the ultra-stereotype ideal of a women and otherwise promotes one standard of beauty above others.

You guys don't follow women's soccer. She is on the national team, playing very well leading up to the World Cup in China this Sept. Unfortunately, she got seriously injured, torn ACL, and will miss it. She was a shoe in to be picked for the World Cup squad. She's on FSC soccer show and is an excellent defender. I have seen large chested women in the defender position, but it is better to be less endowed there when it comes to soccer.

http://www.ussoccer.com/articles/viewArticle.jsp_281935.html

She is blonde, she is beautiful, and she wants a career in front of the camera but she's also a world class athlete and I'm sure that she has endured more pain playing soccer than most of us have on the courts, including me, and I've played tennis with a broken thumb on my hitting hand. Soccer players are crazy.

As for a poster making fetish remarks on Blake's blonde preference. Since when is it a preference to prefer woman with the same color hair as your mother's. His Mom is a blonde? You mean to tell me that it is a fetish if you pick women who have the same color hair as your mother?

BTW, I've known more women who have had breast surgeries, to reduce them, rather than to enlarge them. As a matter of fact, all the women who have discussed breast surgeries with me, want to reduce them.

I'm sorry but I fail to see how your response connects to the comments I made. :confused:

You obviously disagree with my assessment of Blake as a typically superficial famous person who prefers well known 'trophy' girlfriends that he can parade in front of the media. As far as I can see, all the evidence to support my perspective is right there, staring everyone in the face.
That you disagree with me is fine. Perhaps, though, you can demonstrate to everyone exactly how my perspective makes me "obnoxious", an "ego freak", and an "***"...

Let me play devils adovcate. Since we do not know James' exact biological make up, it is hard to speculate if this is truely biracial dating. Lets say his father had some caucasion in him, and his mothers background is 100% caucasion, then technically that would make him more causcasion then anything. We don't know. Plus the comment on how he grew up is another factor. He knew John Mayer growing up.

End of the day I say let the guy be happy. Everytime I've seen him in person he seems more then friendly to everyone. Who he chooses to date is his choice.

And you, Breakpoint, are a little too sensitive. There is some truth in Deuce's perceptions, whether they're true or not. You obviously respect Blake, so you already refuse, to a certain degree, he would be this insensitive.

Deuce, on the other hand, already dislikes the player (the autograph session?), so it's vice versa

Just keeping the facts straight. You agree with saying that Blake is a shallow person, by judging someone who he is with without really knowing her. So if Blake was with an unatractive woman, that would make him a nicer person. If that so, is totally Laughable.. " Yeah james, go make a stand against beauty all of us that can't get it will appreciate it"


My take,


1- It is shallow to judge somebody by who they are dating. It doesn't reflect anything on the person, we all (most) have had experiences having relationship with different people from all ranges of intelligence and Beauty.

2- It is increadibly more shallow to judge somebody as a "brainless trophy woman" just because she is blond, successful and beautiful. From all we know she is a very bright person..

As was mentioned in at least one previous thread on the subject of Blake's choice in women, it is somewhat surprising that Blake seems to prefer the very typical 'famous', 'bombshell' type.
Blake's reputation as a down to Earth intellectual would seem to contradict his choices in women. While one would think that he, of all people, would prefer a non-famous, totally unknown to the public woman of strong substance, he repeatedly seems to choose just the opposite - a typical 'hollywood' type woman who is known primarily for her style and looks. It is as if he has totally bought into the 'expectation' that 'famous' men must couple with this very typical type of woman.

The more I see of Blake, the less I am impressed. He seems just as easily influenced and as superficial as the rest. Given his choice of women, he seems to believe - as do many other 'famous' people - that his identity will be defined by the type of woman who is on his arm.
If Blake is known as a down to Earth intellectual, it is only because his contemporaries are for the most part highly obnoxious morons.
Everything is relative.

All I've stated is that, based on what I've seen of him, and my brief interaction with him, I don't have much respect for him, and, based on those things, I believe that his reputation as an intelligent, down to Earth person is merely a myth.
Of course, my standard in regards to what constitutes an "intelligent, down to Earth person" is likely significantly different than are the standards of most others - especially BreakPoint.

What I did say is that she is obviously seeking fame and fortune, with her magazine and TV appearances, etc. To me, this is blatantly superficial.

As for Blake, his last 'girlfriend' was a 'hot, famous woman'. This current girlfriend is a 'hot, famous woman'. There seems to be a trend in action here - perhaps even a need. I see this as being superficial, as well.
