Memories of Ashe

posted by on August 29 at 12:19 PM

What did we hear when Sharapova spoke about her return to Arthur Ashe Stadium for the U.S. Open, the very court on which she decimated an Italian nobody:

“There’s no way to get rid of the memories when I walk on the court and feel the vibe,” the second-seeded Russian said, 600 crystals on her red dress sparkling in the Arthur Ashe Stadium lights. “Every corner I turn here, I get goose bumps.”
What we heard is Russian nostalgia. “There’s no way to get rid of the memories.” Moy dushka, my darling, this is the beauty of the Russian mind: its phantoms, its hauntedness, its goose bumps, its profound nostalgia.

Uh huh. Yep. Right.

That match was downright tedious to watch after the first fifteen minutes. It's a good thing she's so hot -- it staved off the boredom.

Why does Charles get away with these horny posts by waxing poetic, I don't think that there is anything revelatory about lusting over Russian women.

chaz doesnt get away with it because people like me and poe call him on it, time and again.

Yeah but that's what he's getting off on, Bellevue Ave. Though you already know this.

A.) He's not getting off on that picture. Because:
B.) Her forehead is lame and her belly is covered. And:
C.) Mudede is never horny when he's on shrooms.

That, or he's bored and tired of hunting bears for spleens.

The way that dress wraps around her cooch is quite wonderful.

Somebody had to say it.

Her cootch (I always like the "t") does look nice, but I'm still not sure about crystal doo-dads for tennis. Crystals are for EVENING and FOR THE STAGE. You could argue that it is an evening match, and yes, she is in some ways performing on a stage, but there's a disconnect. Tennis dresses are not evening dresses. They never have been and they never will be and to try and change them is wrong.

Personally, I prefer snooch, as in "I'd like to get close to your snooch and give it a good snooch pounding"

In this context, snoochski would also be acceptable.

pretty sure it should be more like 'moya' [MOI-YA]. and yes, said devotchka [dyev-uush-ka]is super fine.

What about the beauty of the Russian body, Charles? Mmmm.
