RG Day Nine: The Other Guy

Posted by gauloises1 on June 2, 2009

Completing our round-up of penile action, Tommy Robredo defeated Philipp Kohlschreiber in four sets. Raise your hand if you care.


Step down, Tommy.

Although he gets uber-points for this:

Q. You wrote something on the camera. Can you tell us what you wrote? It was pretty long and it was written with a doctor’s writing, so we couldn’t read what you said. We never know what you write because it’s written upside down.

TOMMY ROBREDO: Well, I started writing a poem instead of signing, just to write something and to do something different. But nothing. Nothing special really. I wrote something like, One day I was a kid, or something like that. And at the end, I wrote, Ahahaha. I just wanted to write something different.

So to recap …

Ode to Victory by Tommy Robredo

One day I was a kid

Meh, it still beats Bec Cartwright’s efforts.

    OK, I know this post is over a year old, but I just felt the need to tell everyone that I HAVE THIS BOOKMARKED AND LOOK AT IT FREQUENTLY BECAUSE I THINK IT IS THE PINNACLE OF HILARITY (post + comments.)

    As such, I’m laughing so hard I’m crying right now.

    !!!THAT IS ALL!!!
