    Tourists in San Francisco often make the mistake of wearing t-shirts in the summer...

    SexiSuri in the 90's...kilograms. An everyday thing. If he dieted a bit.

    If S.D.B. and Maria Sharapova lay on a beach next to each other, they would combine to make a ten, both literally and figuratively...

    Oh yes, since Levi's was invented here in SFO. And, it depends on how many layers she want to peel off going from Golden Gate Park to Union Square [neighborhood temp variance].

    Levi's corduroy jeans were a favorite of mine as a teenager.

    I did not dress well as a teenager. My father was sent to San Francisco when I was in high school, and my wardrobe centered around my tennis gear: Adidas t-shirts on warm days, and Adidas jackets on cold days. It is a miracle that girls would go out with me.

    When Andre ditched the swoosh for the three stripes of his spouse, the new apparel manufacturer should have called it Adidas...All Day I Dream About Steffi.

    I first learned about Steffi and Andre being in a relationship when they dined together at George's at the Cove in La Jolla around the time of the 1999 La Costa WTA tournament.

    I remember the sun rising as the overnight train from Nice to Barcelona made its way through the rugged coastline of the Costa Brava in northeast Spain. The beauty of this natural paradise soon disappeared as the train neared the big city and we slowly made the way through some very squalid barrio slums before reaching our destination.

    James Joyce was known for his long trains of thought sometimes called streams of consciousness. One of them depicted an entire day in Dublin on June 16, 1904. It was a blooming beautiful day!

    Every time I see jubilant locker room celebrants don their ski goggles I'm reminded of @Mike Bulgakov 's ocular injury in the Spanish Bush incident. Mike was not a Boy Scout that night, eschewing the motto of "Be Prepared!"

    Some tennis pro celebrants get to celebrate a lot more often than others.

    The Mo√ęt endorser has celebrated slams twice this year and still leads his closest rival thrice, just like at the start of 2017.

    SexiSuri sprays are betterer than bubbly sprays but Maria had betterer read up on the banned substances list of PEDs to make sure WADA doesn't catch wind of the Bageler's secret sauce.

    I suggest we insist TTW require pre-poasting/spraying authentication from SexiSuri by installing a reCAPTCHA step every time he logs on. No more RoboSexiSuri spam!

    During SexiSuri's initial flight to the U.S. on his magic carpet ride, NORAD was on high alert for a mysterious UFO. They had had experience dealing with Santa Claus and his reindeer powered sleigh but this was different...bigger and with no apparent source of power until a jet pulled up next to him and confirmed a gA.S.S.y odor surrounding the craft. That gave new meaning to the acronym UFO...Unidentifiable Farting Object.

    Dave Grohl: "So, since I had recorded the first record by myself, playing all the instruments, but I wanted people to think that it was a group, I figured that FOO FIGHTERS (WW2 term for UFO's) might lead people to believe that it was more than just one guy. Silly, huh?"

    "The Molly Maguires" was a 1970 film starring Sir Sean Connery in just his second cinema role after 007 fame typecasted him as a modern day secret agent. In it, Connery plays an Irish immigrant hellbent on organizing other miners in Pennsylvania coal country against injustice by mine owners and their cronies in uniform. The role came almost two decades before his more famous role as an Irish immigrant in "The Untouchables."

    "Secret Agent Man" was a popular song by Johnny Rivers. His name was taken away and he was assigned a number. The word identity has multiple meanings.

    It should not be a secret as much as it is but Sir Sean's role as Daniel Dravot in John Huston's "The Man Who Would Be King" opposite Michael Caine and Christopher Plummer is very much Oscar worthy. None of them were even nominated. Jack Nicholson as Randle McMurphy was a worthy winner but I still take Sir Sean over nominees Wather Matthau, Maximilian Schell and James Whitmore. It should have been between Sir Sean and Al Pacino in "Dog Day Afternoon" for runner up.

    Will Smith in "Enemy Of The State" is his best work and had an excellent supporting cast with Gene Hackman, Jon Voigt (both Oscar winners), Lisa Bonet, Jack Black, Scott Caan, Jason Lee and Gabriel Byrne.

    Gene Hackman starred in several movies I really liked; one was a more obscure film named "The Conversation," in which he played a surveillant hired to track a couple and record their conversations.

    Obscure? It was a key part in the oeuvre of a famous director turned vintner named Francis Ford Coppola.

    It also featured two actors borrowed from his pal George Lucas' cast for "American Graffiti"...Harrison Ford and Penny Marshall.

    Harrison Ford was also aptly cast in the movie, "Witness." His character was a police officer who became involved with an Amish boy and his mother after the child witnessed a murder. Romance between the mother and officer ensued in the backdrop of Amish country and strict Amish traditions.
