Totally sinful reaching for a water bottle instead of her father's special recovery fluid!
Suzanne Lenglen is said to have enjoyed sips of brandy during matches...
Do they use brandy-infused water to manicure the Terre battue of Court Lenglen @RG?
ILC strongly supports brandy infused anything!
I suggest playing "Brandi (You're A Fine Girl) by Looking Glass on the Bistro juke box!
Mike and the lemurs at the Bistro.
A Fischer bag stuffed with bottles of Stoli.
A ceiling fan slowly rotating ...
"As Time Goes By" playing on the jukebox.
Bobby Fischer was a fan of watching his time go by at a chess board.
Roger Federer is not a fan of watching time go by before Nadal serves. He plucks chest hairs between points, because he gets so bored, but they grow back before the match is over, which even amazes Sean Connery...
"As Time Goes By" was a British sitcom starring two veteran actors with ties to Sean Connery's career-building franchise...Geoffrey Palmer in the 007 "Tomorrow Never Dies" and Dame Judi Dench as "M" in that installment and many others.
Pussy Galore: My name is Pussy Galore.
James Bond: I must be dreaming.
Goldfinger was on BBC America last night
Badfinger is on TT tonight:
"Day After Day" was an enjoyable tune to listen to live when I worked a Badfinger/Don McLean concert. "Vincent" gets my vote over the more famous "American Pie" standard from DonnieMac, but I do like pie!
All Night Long
"Long Day's Journey Into Night" with Sir Laurence Olivier at London's Old Vic was the best live acting I've ever seen.
Jim Morrison was a fan of Céline's Journey to the End of the Night.
Realms of bliss, realms of light
Some are born to sweet delight
Some are born to sweet delight
Some are born to the endless night
End of the night, end of the night
End of the night, end of the night...
Haven't seen Morrissey the poaster for some time.
Haven't seen FOD in too long a time...miss his wit.
Haven't seen as many Fed mishit backhands, going too long, since he went to a bigger head...
As soon as Barry Bonds went to a bigger head size, lots of his balls went very long.
And two of his balls became smaller...
Small ball worked well for the KC Royals this season.
Speaking of which, what do you call a dachshund with steel balls?
Sparky Lyle had some big balls relying on a slider as his out pitch. He was the first reliever to win the Cy Young award.
Only the ball should bounce...
I commit the cardinal sin of lust when Mike B posts pics of Anna K, Maria K, Marloes H...Time to hit the shower, work awaits!
Lucie needs a shower now...
Lucie in the Shower with Davis Cup horse!
Radek and Secretariat: 31 lengths greater than their nearest rival.
Soviet Secretariat Gorbachev was quite forward thinking and went to great lengths in allowing the Iron Curtain to dissolve, thereby allowing Radek to become a Playboy Of The Western World.
"I could be the best-looking guy in the Duma," Marat Safin once said while making far more money than he ever did playing tennis, getting paid for doing as little as possible...
The original Marat of politics met an untimely death at the hands of Charlotte Corday while bathing in oatmeal to treat his chronic eczema.
Mozart (aka Mozzie) was the only character that interested me in White Collar.
Tom Hulce's role as Mozart in "Amadeus" still makes me giggle!
Mozart's Requiem brought tears to my eyes once.
"Requiem For A Heavyweight" was a pretty good film with Anthony Quinn, Jackie Gleason, Mickey Rooney, Julie Harris and a couple of pretty good real heavyweight fighters, Ali and Dempsey. The screenplay writer was another heavyweight...Rod Serling.
Raging Bull with Deniro, and directed by Scorcese. Two heavyweights.
Robert Wise directed Paul Newman in "Somebody Up There Likes Me", the Rocky Graziano story. He was a middleweight world champion.
Gary Oldman in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
Graham Greene's "The Quiet American" is more entertaining than Maria Sharapova's on court articulations in "The Loud American Russian"...
Redfoo says thank you mr khabibulin for helping Azashrieka become a prominent loud Belarusian.
Two heavyweights: Jane Mansfield.
Mariska Hargitay will be knocking on your door for this, flashing her L&O SVU badge.
Maruschka Detmers is a Dutch actress who moved to France as a teenager...
Ty Detmer won a Heisman Trophy as a QB at BYU before a journeyman career as a pro.
Before Dirk Nowitski there was Detlef Schrempf.
Jumbo shrimp is a favorite oxymoron, much like Nadal defending championships at non-clay tournaments.
Bubba Gump Shrimp is a viable entity (seafood restaurant), thanks to Tom Hanks' Forrest Gump.
Forrest Gregg is a NFL HOFer with three pre-merger NFL titles and three Super Bowl rings. Only the last one was earned with a coach not named Lombardi, who called Gregg the best player he ever coached.
As per wikipedia, Gregg shorthand is a form of stenography that was invented by John Robert Gregg in 1888. Like cursive longhand, it is completely based on elliptical figures and lines that bisect them.
Separate names with a comma.
