So the Fed Cup final is this weekend in San Diego and everywhere I turn in my Google Reader feed all I see are references to this being a David vs. Goliath clash between the US and Italy, which...I kinda understand from an underdog vs. heavy favorite angle, but not so much from a litte guy vs. big guy angle. And forgive me if I'm wrong, but doesn't size have a huge impact in the analogy?
Uh...but I digress.
So yeah. San Diego. Insert obligatory "whales vagina" joke. If I wasn't dazed on painkillers at the moment I could craft a pretty amazing Liezel/Whales Vagina joke that would blow your whale pants off. Oh well.
Ooh! Look! Mark Wahlberg riding a unicorn!
Teams have been in San Diego practicing and the draw finally rolled around today. Everybody's shocked that MJ tapped Coco as the #2 singles player instead of Believe, but really, why should anyone be shocked. I think sblily said it best on the Twitter gadget:
It was a well-run campaign. Stayed on message and backed up her argument with facts. Bravo, Mels.
So after they gave the seal a gag ball, which is apparently a thing in conservative San Diego, the draw was made.
Fran and the Seal will take on Coco...
...and Flavi will take on Bethanie in a match that will require me to keep my mouth shut. I really like them both and I really do want Bethanie to get something positive out of this year.
That said, there's no reason to think Team Forza won't take this. I don't think Coco can deal wtih Fran's variety and the Italians are solid in away ties.
Goliath looks really tense. And...not so Goliath-y.
Amazing photobomb, Shamu. I want to high five your tail.
Play starts tomorrow at 1pm PST.
