… On Second Thoughts, Maybe Not

Posted by gauloises1 on May 10, 2010

If you’ve ever really wanted to give yourself diabetes, check out this video of US tennis stars (and Kim) on what is apparently Mother’s Day, everywhere except the UK.

Although it did remind me of this. Which was kind of sweet.

Tell Your Daughters, Do Not Walk the Streets Alone Tonight

Posted by gauloises1 on November 30, 2009

Congratulations to Bob and Mike Bryan, who defeated Max Miyrni and Andy Ram in straight sets to take the ATP World Tour Finals doubles trophy and the year-end no. 1 ranking.

The gutters will run red with blood.

Draw Me a Muzzard

Posted by gauloises1 on November 19, 2009

As you’ve probably heard, the draw for the World Tour Finals took place on the London Eye today.

Group A
Roger Federer
Andy Murray
Juan Martin del Potro
Fernando Verdasco

Group B
Rafael Nadal
Novak Djokovic
Nikolay Davydenko
Robin Soderling

A lot of people seem to think that Group A is the group of death, but I’m not convinced. I think the eventual winner will come from Group B. Just a thought.

Oh and the doubles draw:

Group A
Nestor/Zimonjic
Bhupathi/Knowles
Cermak/Mertinak
Fyrstenberg/Matkowski

Group B
Bryan/Bryan
Dlouhy/Paes
Kubot/Marach
Mirnyi/Ram

Apparently the doubles is also going to be streamed/televised, too. Good times.

Cute or Creepy? You Decide

Posted by gauloises1 on August 25, 2009

OK, my distaste for the Bryan brothers is a matter of public record. But I really enjoyed this New York Times piece on their careers and their unique situation as doubles specialists and siblings.

That being said, I’m not sure whether that article made me more kindly disposed towards them, or more terrified that they’re going to cut my face off. What do you think?

Oh My God, No

Posted by gauloises1 on August 19, 2009

According to the Bryan bros’ twitter, Andy Murray will be featured rapping a verse on their forthcoming album.

It’s Hutch lying amid the tangled sheets like a porn star that really makes this art.

Bryans Lose in Munich First Round

Posted by gauloises1 on May 6, 2009

The Bryan brothers suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Jan Hernych and Ivo Minar in Munich today, 16 62 11-9.

There’s an old saying that applies here, I feel.

Wear lederhosen, get your ass kicked.

Bryans. Lederhosen. Thank You Most Sarcastically, ATP.

Posted by gauloises1 on May 5, 2009

Yeah, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

The woman who took this photo is dead now.

If you see the photo, in seven days you will die.

Image is Everything: Bryans in Obscene Massage Scandal (Not Really)

Posted by gauloises1 on April 23, 2009

The Bryans would like you to know what they’re up to in Barcelona.

With brothers like that …

Anyway, bet you £50 that woman’s been fed through a woodchipper by now.
