So yesterday, while watching the final, I noticed Michelle Collins, Managing Editor for Best Week Ever was all of a sudden tweeting about tennis. And that made me happy. Because seriously, you guys, I LOVE HER. You know what made me happier? The fact that she was totally digging on Elf:
We exchanged a couple of additional tweets and then I tweeted her afterwards:
TaDa! And she totally does the match justice:
But just who is this JMDelP character who would almost certainly be obliterated by the animatronic Federer? Measuring in a 6′6″ tall, he’s a handsome gentleman with a mature, well-bred face, sinewy caramel logs for arms, giant, Road Runner circle feet, and a determined will. Also, he’s only 20 years old, making this last sentence possibly illegal and worthy of a sex offenders registry. It became clear that rooting for this Argentinian wunderkind was the only way to go.
Watching this giant hot man child cry tears of exhaustion and joy was easily one of the most rewarding things this lil’ lady has ever witnessed. It was like the end of Rudy, only with a giant testosterone wolf-faced totem pole in place of the delicate Sean Astin.
Awesome. Love it when non-tennis geeks see what I see.
