Summer of Sam. Or ‘Sammer’, If You Will.

Posted by gauloises1 on January 2, 2010

Those whacky hemispheres. I was trying to figure out why the title was ‘Summer of Sam’ when the summer – which, in fairness, could be referred to as Sam’s summer – was long past and it is in fact snowing.

Anyway, here’s Sam Stosur appearing in and indeed on Inside Sport.

I swear she was blonde last time I looked.

    Uuuum, I TOTALLY would not have recognized her if you hadn’t said it was her. Even after you told me it was her I was still very skeptical until the last photo of her smiling- and I never doubt you G! I don’t like the new look, it makes me confused and uncomfortable.

    i’m SO niave – it didn’t even occur to me she was photoshopped! i sort of like the dark hair – though it did startle me a bit when i first saw her at HC.

    There’s no photoshopping away that right arm in the last shot.

      Thank god! Let’s hear it for Sam’s guns…

      I don’t particularly like the hair color, but leave her alone, she’s just a kid. Let her play if she wants to! I’m more concerned that she didn’t close it out against Cirstea. 😦

      I think the main thing they did with the pics is just waaay too much soft focus. A bit silly, really, as Sam is a pretty healthy specimen (as in pretty + healthy) and doesn’t need that. But hey, that’s the Aussies for ya. (These are the same folks who, memorably, put Lucy Lawless in a teddy, on her knees on a sheepskin, with the caption – cue the Oz accent – “Xena like you’ve never seen her!” I still laugh/roll my eyes at that one.)

    Nice to see her babed up for a change…and what a babe she is!
