Is it Halloween again already?

January 25, 2009

Blog Guy, give us an update. A few days ago you were in big trouble for running funny pictures of tennis players. I believe some players were coming to talk to you about showing more respect. How did that turn out?

Pretty well. I promised them that from now on, I will choose my tennis photos randomly, like the ones here, without looking for goofy faces.

That sounds reasonable. I heard you also agreed to run a disclaimer each time you show tennis players.

Yeah. Here it is:

“Most tennis players don’t look as much like Ratso Rizzo as the ones seen in this blog. Many of them have full control of their face some of the time.”

That’s very nice. I don’t see how they could ever object to that.

I get funny faces from news anchors when I pause my Tivo. I have thought about photographing them and posting on web.
Since I’m too lazy to actually do that, would you please do it for me, Robert?

[...] used to show a lot of pictures of tennis players making goofy faces, but then I recall you got in big trouble for that. So I guess you can’t run those here [...]
