Does the dude abide well with Fischer's excellent products for ski jumping???
Yes, if you're talking about bunny hills...
Bunny Austin was the last British male to reach the Wimby final until Mugray Muzziah did it in 2012. He was not related to Tracy Austin.
Tracy Lamar McGrady Jr., my favorite Orlando Magic player EVER!
Leopold Bloom, protagonist in Joyce's Ulysses.
Mark Twain published Ulysses S. Grant's memoirs.
The “S” in Grant’s name didn’t stand for anything but stuck once Ohio Congressman Thomas Hamer miswrote it as ''Ulysses S. Grant''.
Dr. Hunter S. Thompson and his Wild Turkey Kentucky medicine...
Another famous HST was famous for the phrase, "The buck stops here."
Harry S. Truman's wife, Bess Wallace was his childhood sweetheart. He met her when he was just six years old and it was love at first sight!
Most people remember Truman Capote for "In Cold Blood" but I much prefer his novella that was turned into the vehicle for Audrey Hepburn's classic film performance as Holly Golightly. Something about a morning meal at a fancy jewelry store famous for their blue boxes. It was also the vehicle for Oscars for Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer for Best Score and Best Song.
Just some trivia for my huckleberry friends.
Tom Sawyer, I liked a lot. The sequel, Huck Finn? Not so much. Perhaps Tom and Huckleberry were supposed to be Mark Twain in his youth?
"What's gone with that boy, I wonder? You TOM!"
Ground control to Major Tom had dialogue ("I'm sitting in my tin can") in "A Space Oddity" while HALeventually stopped responding in "2001: A Space Odyssey."
Thomas Muster is the last Tom to win a major, off the top of my mind. Stringertom needs to get his act together and partner with Martina Hingis in the U.S. Open mixed...
I would like to partner with the Swiss Miss but the chosen sport would be couch hockey where I have amazing skills at putting the biscuit in the basket. We might also enter mixed dubs in The Horizontal Bop category.
I hope you don't string her along, Tom!
I will now petition for a username change to stringalongtom!
What about Tomas Berdych. Has he not won a slem yet.
What about the Bryan brothers, Tim and Tom ?
Please don't do this to the Swiss Miss.
Will Ro8er be taking his Wimby trophy to the Swiss Alps ?
If only Juliette could have been seated with his family to watch RF19...
Juliette has gone to the great pasture in the sky but not before giving life to baby Edelweiss (fedr's name suggestion). Then, ten years after his first Gstaad gift, they gave him Desiree. No idea if Mirka will bring her to the box one day.
Roger is much nicer than Marat, and would have invited Juliette, Edelweiss, and Deriree to his box, if he could. Safin's box was like getting into Studio 54.
