Cheesy Times in Tokyo

Posted by gauloises1 on October 6, 2009

So I’m not sure whether this was before or after he lost (if it was after, that would kind of extremely suck), but JMDP attended a reception for the Rakuten Japan Open in Tokyo at some point, along with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils and Lleyton Hewitt.

Sorry Gael, you *what* L.A.?

I want to bottle Jo’s expression in this photo.

Why is Ayumi Morita there?

Not that I wouldn’t get hammered with/by JMDP, given half the chance.

I’ve *just* noticed Bambi’s hair is back. Thank god.

To quote IRTTY, “Sir Broods-a-lot”.

But nothing’s that bad when you have a small wooden box.

    The Sir Broods-a-lot pic… I am the only who gets a Zoolander vibe from it? That pouty look…

    Is it Blue Steel? Ferrari? Le Tigra? No! It’s MAGNUM!!

    Those pics are so cheesy, *I* get an upset stomach just looking at them.

    *sigh* I miss him already.

    They smashed open sake last year too. You’re not the only one who said he looks like Zoolander, he really can pout, lol. And his gorgeous chest peeking out of that shirt…

    BTW, that “U” on Bambi’s tee is the True Religion horseshoe. And True Religion is an LA based premium denim company. Ah the stuff one can learn by reading New Balls…

    Please tell me that I’ve just made your day by sharing such an important piece of Bambi-related information with you. Please. I need a virtual hug.

    Jo’s expression in the 2nd picture is truly precious. Although apparently he didn’t get the distressed jeans memo.

    Aaaaand I wonderwonder what’s in the wooden box.

  5. irefusetotellyou said

    I’ll virtually hug you, Saoirse. Or, you know, do other things. 🙂

    Lleyton looks pretty hot in the picture of the three.

    Great call on the Zoolander reference Saoirse. Funny stuff.

    Sorry for Another post here I’m submit happy. Just wondering does anyone know what JMDP’s blue wrist band is? I’ve noticed it for a while now. Please don’t tell me he’s a Kabbalist. And then soon Madonna will be sleeping with him.

    I’ve thought about it long and hard, and I’ve concluded that I’d like to see Delpo in tighter jeans.

    That’s probably the most insightful thing I’ll say today.

    Am sure I’ve seen reference to the blue wrist band on the JMDP message board (think on the Picture thread) and no it’s nothing Kabbalist like that, it’s to do with a charity. PLEASE keep him away from Madonna. I kinda like the loose jeans, they make him look like a student. 😀 Though tight jeans are also appealing…

    So glad to see Gael’s hair back. Woo hoo!

    Elf’s blue band looks like those usual charity rubber bracelets.

  12. Saoirse said

    Oh it’s a *bracelet*!! Always thought it was one of those blue elastic band, you know, like the one they put around broccoli, celery and other unruly vegetables at the supermarket… Urgh. Good question thought. Surely someone more knowledgeable (read crazy/JMDP-obsessed) can shed some light on the mystery.

    So anyways, I think I know what’s in the wooden box… Drumroll… I *think* he may be keeping his old teeth in there. Think about it. It’s PERFECT!!

    Yes IRTTY, let’s DO *stuff*… 🙂

    Slightly up close shot of the bracelet: http://img138.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=59867_rg_070329_a_delpotro_07miami_4587_122_76lo.jpg#

    Off to fan self frantically and gawp.

  14. Saoirse said

    Hey Maria, what braclet?? 😉

  15. Saoirse said

    *BRACELET* Sorry, I can’t type straight when I need to change my underwear for sudden excitement-related reasons.

    Ah, just the kind of cheesiness I love. Thanks Maria. And more importantly I don’t really care about the bracelet anymore.
