Discussion in 'Former Pro Player Talk' started by The Grand Slam, Jan 9, 2007.
HAHAHA lmfao, a must watch
what does she say to him?
I think I remember that, didnt she ask "how much money do you make." That was funny.
hahaha. i love her response
That was great!
Saw that live and wondered what her response said about her.
I'm SURE it was a joke. :s
She certainly lived up to it later on.
Why a woman with such huge career earnings still felt the need to act out the role of golddigger is beyond me. I guess evolutionary psychology dies hard.
They don't call you Dumbjack for no reason ....
thanks for posting that Grand Slam
The funniest and wittiest response ever of a professional tennis player to a remark from the stands.
Is there one important record this woman doesn't hold?
Sexiest Woman In The World?
Pestova and Elsa Benitez are sexier. Maybe even peak Schiffer.
And Marilyn Monroe is SOAT ...
I can't tell if your comment is racist or sexist. Please illuminate. I do know I'd love to see what you site as an example of Steffi Graf goldigging. I hope it's not just because she married a rich guy.
The "Pithy" Proboscis, Steffi Graf: an objective analysis
to the rest of you : this is just a personal "tweak-fest" between my homie Condi and I; you need not bother reading into this.....
Steffi Graf (to spectator): "How much money do you make?"
Analysis: Steffi Graf's reprehensible inquisitiveness of monetary accquisitiveness does not remotely suggest to the 'humorously honed' ear, a sense that her 'funny bone' is in tune with the "socially evolved." Her quip couldn't even be tagged as worthy of, a Joan Rivers, for example. Whatever fraternal traits Ms. Graf shares with the heavily plasticized and botoxed Ms. Rivers, they clearly are not based on an inherent ability to combine clever conception with facetious expression as is often the case with Ms. Rivers. No, Ms. Graf's gauche, impotent attempt at pithy repartee, more to the points, suggests that the only "fraternal" traits she shares with Ms. Rivers is the socially tasteless, run-of-the-mill AVARICE commonly found among the nouveau riche.
Conclusion: "So....how much money do you make?" ???
Clearly, not exactly a George Bernard Shaw-type "come-back."
To help further illustrate the "witty" (not) point: here are two other examples that are clearly out of the one-track-mind-$ "golddigger" Graf's league:
1. After (McEnroe) walks towards the chair to argue a call in the begining of a match....
Spectator: "Come on Mac! Already now?!"
McEnroe (to spectator): "What's your problem? You got a f*cking appointment you've got to get to?"
Analysis: Crude, but infinitely more inventive than Graf.
2. Another time, McEnroe (to heckling spectator): "What other problems do you have apart from being unemployed, a moron and a dork?"
Analysis: Churlish, but again, infinitely more inventive than Graf.
Kind of like their respective games.
Graf: one dimensional
McEnroe: incendiary at times, yet infinitely more inventive
A couple. Here's two:
I. Most times stabbed by a Steffi Graf fan while trying to play a tennis match......in Germany.
II. Most times stabbed by a Steffi Graf fan while trying to play a tennis match....anywhere.
(or do they not qualify as "important?")
Heil Steffi! Happy New Year, Condi
Please, oh God, don't bring up Monica Seles or the stabbing in this thread. The last thing I want is a hijacked thread. This was just supposed to be a bit of a laugh, don't make it into a huge argument. -_-
BTW, who is Miss Rivers?
PS: Graf never said "How much money to you make?"
So your conclusions are wrong from the start.
As almost always, Penthouse ....
Thanks, I almost overlook that.
IMO, the stabbing didn't alter the course of tennis history as certain patriotic circles among U.S. tennis fans want it to make us believe.
Seles was injured for about 4 weeks and had some motivational problems afterwards. But Graf - coming out of her horrible slump - was rising to her former peak again in summer of 1993 and would have become #1 anyway.
We must not forget that even #1 Seles lost 5 of 7 matches against Graf.
Which is more than 70 %. A fact those U.S. Seles fans always try to avoid ...
What were you thinking??
-__- My god... I'm sick of this.
It's baiting and counter-baiting. These Seles-Graf arguments are becoming so tiresome.
Grand Slam & Polaris: re-read the very top of my post (you don't have to read the entire post, SINCE YOU WERE ADVISED NOT TO UPFRONT), but just the top of it. There it is: a harmless little advisory noting that the following was a harmless "tweak" just between Condi and I (the word actually used; not "flame" but tweak). And so what did you Grand Slam do? You whined "oh please God....blah, blah." Now what part of "tweak" didn't you get? Further, Steffi Graf's illustrious career has ended; i.e. she retired from the tour YEARS AGO. If I was going to get petty and whine like you, I'd whine that this post really belongs in the "Former Pro Player" section....so obvious even the Geico caveman would know better.
... And still, I don't understand why you've even made either of the posts you have. This was supposed to be a joke. I mean, look at the video. Pretty funny, yeah? Bit of a laugh.
I skim through your post. You bring up the stabbing at the bottom of your first post. All I wanted was for this NOT to happen. Your posts are too freaking complicated and analytic and boring for me to even attempt to interpret what you're saying. I do realise, however, that you've mentioned the stabbing. So I ask you not to bring up any of this Monica Seles stabbing jargon. I'm not whining, I'm requesting that you don't bring this endless argument over to this thread. I care neither about your stupid tweak nor your over-analytic views on an 11-second video. Actually, I think I do. It was these such views that prompted me to ask you to leave the Seles/stabing discussion alone. You've made a big deal out of nothing.
FOOTNOTE: Leave the Seles topic alone!
"boring?" "stupid tweak?"
uh-oh.......look who's whining again. lol ;-)
No worries, Dedans. I wasn't singling you out in particular, just expressing my displeasure about the general trend. I can see that there can be a funny angle to this, so I'm not taking it as seriously as my post seems to suggest.
... I dislike you with great intensity.
I think Agassi's response of the news he was getting married to a certain journalist was infinitely better:
"We've invited the 100 best jounalists in the world to the wedding, did you get an invitation?"
Problem is, he never said that ....
Though I may not like your "dislike," I do love your "great intensity."
Be my lover, oh Grand Slab!
Polaris: I'm glad at least you "got" the gist of it. (sincerely), thx.
... Are you high or something? x__x;
Yes, he did. Geeze, what is it with you?
You were slightly off the mark - as always ....
"We invited the 100 best journalists (to our wedding); sorry you were not among them!"
Yep....lots of difference there.
And, congrats on winning the Picking Fly Doo Doo out of Pepper award. I'm sure you're very proud of the ability.
I'm sorry my pet, but did you really expect me to respond to your ("I dislike you with great intensity")) post seriously?
Seriously ol' chap, I dare say: who actually speaks like that: ("I dislike you with great intensity")?
Given the hillariously pompous rhetoric of yours, your subsequent "are you high?" question would in fact be best directed towards yourself. However, I will not belabor the point in posing that question in your direction because, first and foremost, I'm a really 'swell guy' and also because your "are your high?" question was after all, just a tired, worn-out, cliche-ridden, pedestrian "response" that one reads all too often. However, I must confess with all frankness and candor, mon amie: I found your "I dislike you with great intensity" comment quite amusing. Very poetic. Given your penchant for poetic posts, I wonder (on the other hand) how an actual compliment from you might read?
".....I, The Grand Salami unequivocably equate you Dedans Penthouse, with a stream of bat's ****: a shaft of 'GOLD' when all around is dark...."
Hey Rabbit, don't 'cha like it that whenever Condi becomes involved in any tempest-in-a-teacup fray involving "her royal beakness" Steffi, how she can flip out on a dime? Kind of like shootin' fish in a barrell wouldn't you say? Or, kind of like driving twin Escalades (w/ 22's") up Steffi's stuffy nostrils.
I'd hit that.
who ever said she was a shy, serious person?
she has some sense of humor there.
You are a warrior poet...
Wow, and you actually enjoy doing this? I suggest you seek help.
Dedans rocks!! Love him and his posts - surely you are missing the humour.
Sure, I like him too, but hijacking this thread wasn't very considerate.
Grand Slam, the thread had already been hijacked...or should I say Condi-jacked.
Ok, time to get down from the cross 'Grand Slam Jesus'.
For the *cough* 3rd time: my original post was prefaced...(as in UPFRONT) with an "Advisory" advising the at-large audience (which would also include you) NOT TO READ---that my 'tweak' was just between Condi and myself, period. So whatever comprehension challenges may or may not have befallen you, would you please stop your repeated and odious attempts to lay blame on me Grand Slammy and face facts: 'twas YOU, dear child, that felt compelled to "trespass" via your own free will and to that end, I will take responsibility for nothing other than the truth, ipso facto (ah-hem).
Now, in the interest of brevity, allow me to wrap up this trite little malestorm in "ying" and "yang" fashion:
Here is a handkerchief.
There is the door.
There's your pizza
And here's your pepperoni!
-lifted from a Cheech and Chong big circa 1973
That from you!
... or it would have been funnier if she had said something like, "What's your shoe size?"
Good one! Lol! But: there is a difference between pompous and purposely "over-the-top" rhetoric. You're not reading me correctly; i.e. I = the latter.....sniff...sniff......
This Dimjack guy called Graf a "golddigger" for this response AND for hooking up with Agassi (who chased her around the globe before they married!).
But what do I expect a fair assessment by Rabid or Dimjack types ...
Priceless. I've never heard that particular euphemism for picky
I never heard it either. What does it mean?
My dear old dad used to tell me that OrangeOne when I was being particularly picayune about this that or the other. My dad was retired Navy and he never used the euphomism "doo doo".
