Picspam: You poser, you.
Oh hai Roger. I facebook-like you. I facebook-like you a lot.
As Rafa, Nando, Nole and Ferrer face off in Monte Carlo, Roger seems to be tucked away in the mountains with a racquet, a clay court and one thing on his mind: PARIS PARIS PARIS PARIS PARIS. Subtle, heh?
Oh Roger, did I mention I facebook-like you a lot?
Apart from hiding out in the Swiss mountains and dreaming of Paris, Roger attended the hockey match between Bern and Geneva, where he took pictures with the players from Bern and bumped into the coach of Ge/Servette – Chris McSorley – who happened to be coming out of the locker room at the same time.
I dare say McSorley turned out to be a bit of a Fedophile.
«Waouh, il y a un seul mot pour ça, c’est «honneur», oui, c’est un honneur de rencontrer Roger Federer. C’est un des plus grands athlètes de tous les temps. D’ailleurs, il est plus grand que ce que je m’imaginais.»
Rough translation: “Wow. There is only one word for this and it’s ‘honor’. Yes, it’s an honor to meet Roger Federer. He is one of the greatest athletes of all times, and he’s taller than I imagined.”
Federer, who had kept a low-profile at the event, was there through the arrangement of retired Swiss tennis player Michel Kratochvil (lost to Feddy 4th round at Roland Garros in 5 sets back in 2001), whose father is involved with the Bern club and incidentally owns a tennis facility in Ostermundigen. I wonder if Roger’s training there.
You know the “Where’s Wally” books? Sometimes I feel like I’m writing “Where’s Roger?“
Going to pretend that I have a life for a bit now.
