Peter Bodo posted on our beloved Baby Beluga and her recent success. I'll be honest, it's kind of a confusing article. At least to me. Here's an excerpt:
And Safina has a lot - groundstrokes that are the equivalent of heavy artillery, a heavy serve, a newfound mobility that will only get better now that she's also been working on her fitness with retired Croatian world-class sprinter, Dejan Vojnovic. Although it's tricky to generalize, in my experience Croatians seem, well, very grounded, self-effacing, and realistic. Those are good qualities to bring to the mix for a girl who has been cloaked in conflicting emotions and unrealistic demands and expectations as if they were badly mismatched articles of clothing. Krajan and company have taught her an important lesson that might have been borrowed from a fashion expert: get rid of the red pumps declaring your emotional neediness and dump the sequined jean-jacket that is your ability to hit winners (and make terrible errors). Pick something that matches your complexion, trim a few pounds here and there, and dress yourself in a game that enhances your assets in a solid, simple, and tasteful way.
Um, I get what Pete's saying, but something about the way he says leaves me feeling...unsettled. Maybe it's his need to describe the pre-Berlin Dinara as basically a hooker from Jersey. Or his attempt to try and force this fashion analogy. I don't know. The ideas are fine, but the writing is just clunky. By the middle of that paragraph I was like "WTF is he talking about? Is Dinara Julia Roberts and Zeljko Richard Gere? Wait, Dinara's a hooker with a heart of gold? But who's Jason Alexander? Do I hear Roxette playing?"
I'm so confused.
