Tower of Tandil, Toast of New York

Posted by gauloises1 on September 15, 2009

And now back to our Elf coverage …

JMDP with his trophy on top of the Empire State Building:






On American TV:


(Woman in red dress clearly interested. Man in suit clearly threatened.)


Too cool for school.

And generally being feted:

Incidentally, I understand Tandil are lining up a welcome home parade for him tomorrow. I’m just praying for another shot of him in a fireman’s helmet.

    oh please! don’t stop, I’d be very dissapointed if I came here and didn’t find lots of Elf’s pics and videos.
    And how yummy does he look in that sweater??!!
    And why didn’t Nike provide something Nike for him to wear and advertise? oh maybe all they had was 16 embroided (forgive me while I evil laugh)

    WHY IS HE BORROWING CLOTHES FROM MARIO?? EVERYONE KNOWS THE MAN HAS TERRIBLE TASTE! Or did Mario sell all his worldly possessions in his short-lived foray into that cult and Juan Martin Del Potro couldn’t resist a bargain?

    I KNOW. If he was wearing a yellow Hugo Boss belt, this thing would be WAY out of hand.

    At least his jumper’s not pink though. There is still hope!

    His amazingness is starting to hurt my eyes.

    LOVETHATFIRSTPHOTO. Granted, he would look great in a burlap sack, but he looks even better with some classy blue argyleness.

    And his hair! Sort of stylized. Sort of I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT ALL

    I’m loving all the photos — keep them coming! 🙂

    The Tower of Tandil plus a blue argyle sweater equal Joan minus ovaries.

    Look at him, in his wee shirt and dress jersey. He’s like a proper grown-up.
    I don’t see how I can possibly concentrate today. Jeez. Thanks Juan.

    Love the pics! He looks so cute. I actually think he pulls off the sweater but I like the plain white shirt better. AW so happy he’s enjoying his moment to the fullest!

    Hahahaha Joan you’re just cracking me up. 🙂

    Do you have the press conference of elf, which was moderated by McEnroe???

    I like him in the blue argyle. It looks good on him. And that first photo is so WIN. Cannot wait for the pictures from Argentina.

  12. Mlle. Marseillaise (a.k.a Joan) said

    Wow, I couldn’t resist another ovary-shattering peek. He makes that trophy look super tiny.

  13. rulin said

    Ahh, preppy look WIN! I am a sucker for that look, and he cleans up. So. Well. I love this blog! It aggregates all the JMDP information… which I currently can’t get enough of. 🙂

    Does anyone notice any similarities? (I was really just looking for a picture to compare the size of the trophy but was surprised to see how similar their outfits were. I doubt the trophy shrunk so Elf is flippin’ huge!)

  15. Carrie said

    Was he on the Today show today? The picture makes it look like he was but there are no video clips of it on the Today website.

  16. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really neatly written article.

    I’ll make sure to bookmark it and come back to learn more of your helpful information. Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.
