Further Adventures …

Posted by gauloises1 on April 14, 2010

Speaking of hot Tandilese, injured wrists and the inherent fail that arises when the two are combined … Pico will take at least two months out after Roland Garros to have surgery on a recurring left-wrist injury.

And yes, he will miss the Davis Cup quarterfinal against Russia.

This may make his straight-sets loss to Michael Berrer in Monte-Carlo today easier to understand, or it may not. Don’t look at me, I’m just the messenger.

    *looks at gaul. 😐 *

    gloomy duty for NB today, this tennis news business.

    • gauloises1 said

      Yep. I’d be lying if I said I had any desire to blog about anything that happened today.

      Apart from Nalby winning … which I didn’t see.

      Teutonic gloom: am I doing it right?

      • Bismarck said

        you´re doing quite nicely, yep.
        i like how the ellipses tie a knot of gloom between the pico and the vika injury woes.

      • FortuneCookie said

        Just think of the Nalby win! 😉 Seriously,go and find highlights,it was hot…
        Everything about it was great,the ridiculously good tennis,the up and down drama,the (really pro Nalby) crowd,anddd…have I stopped you from downing absinthe and thinking about the other (injured) Argentines yet?

        • gauloises1 said

          It’s wine, so … yes? 🙂

          I’m just thinking about how great it’s going to be when Nalby, Delpo and Pico combine to win the Davis Cup for Argentina some glorious day. (That’s how you can tell I’ve been drinking.)

            and they will play the final in Shangri-la on a court made of marshmallow. The linesfolken will be leprechauns and all the ball kids will sing in 3 part harmony during the changeovers.
            Yes that is my Argie Dream. (also it will probably include sex with one or more players on the team)

            • gauloises1 said

              Skip the marshmallows, the leprechauns, the ball kids, the Davis Cup final and in fact the tennis, and you’ll be left with the dream I hope to have tonight.

              • Cubbie said

                Is it good/bad/ or pathetic that Pico has become the most frequent “guest star” i.e. non- husband star in sex dreams of mine over the past year.

                • naughty T....urbane gentleman said

                  oh it’s goooooooooooooood with a capital OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I had his arm around me once in a photo and swear I nearly spaffed.

    Oh god. As if I wasn’t depressed enough already.
    But Pico, why wait? If you can’t play properly now, why not sort it out now?

  3. Imtotallyrad said

    I dont understand that either, if its making him play bad continuing to play with the problem probably isn’t going to make it any better, so just get it fixed now!
