Anyone see James Blake on The Colbert Report? It was absolutely hilarious. Colbert even shot at Blake with a tennis ball bazooka! I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow to be able to see the video.

Hahaha, I saw it and thought it was quite funny!

His questions about Federer and the Olympics were really funny and the whole on-court scene was tops.

I would rephrase your sentence to say: "You are a fan of Blake" I don't see you as being a fan of Blake but a mud rucker.

OK newbie, you got me. I'm not a fan of Blake. I just stay up til 5 AM to watch his matches just because I can. My user name is one big punk'd on the whole TT community. My real favorite player is .... ...... Thomas Blake. :shock::roll:

I just made a typo when I registered. Don't tell anybody though, just between me and you. ;)

"Why do people continue to play tennis while Federer is playing?"

"You beat Federer last year in the Olympics. Was this during the time Federer was paralyzed?"

:lol:

I can`t find the actual thread right now, but you really shouldnt post ****** pictures where Blake is celebrating and Fed is crying! If you are a true James Blake -fan you wouldnt do that since Federer was the ONLY top-player who sent "get well soon"- greetings to Blake after his serious injury!:evil:

I like Colbert, but I actually didn't find it that funny. The bazooka at the end was amusing though. I am probably in the minority but for some reason when comedians try to be funny at tennis, it rarely works.

It was in the Nadal or Serena thread, and you have to understand, Drakulie was really getting on my nerves in that point of time and had posted a vid of Fed beating Blake prior to me putting up the pics from the Olympics. All in fun, of course, but Drak deserved it.

I liked when he did the girly serve and then fell down... and his multitude of wrist bands...

That was really fun. Thanks for posting. I do occasionally catch the Reporr, but I would've missed this for sure.

The J-Block...the C-Section, LOL.
Roger fans: The F-word? Rafa's: The N-word?
*****ovic or Del Potro's fans: The D-train?

EDIT:
Then at the end, a not at all shameless plug for FILA's James Blake line..with his dad's initials. Very cool.

Blake is a good man. I hope he gets his game together again soon. Davis Cup Champion. Overall mensch.
