can i call for a trainer?

March 4, 2008

By now you’ve seen the videos from Jimmy Kimmel Live!, right? If not, watch the NSFW clips of the love, uh, square that is Matt Damon, Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Kimmel, and Ben Affleck (this then this).

The other night I happened to watch a funny clip of another recurring JKL! segment (“Unnecessary Censorship”) on abc.com. I’m glad I did.

I’ll never see medical timeouts in the same way ever again.

k-swiss makes tommy haas a bamboo shirt

It seems that K-Swiss and Limited Sports get to share the hunky walking billboard that is Tommy Haas.

The German company’s monogrammed hat and wristbands are hanging around (we thought they were lost forever!) while K-Swiss outfits Tommy with the Bamboo Side Print Crew. Yep, it’s a shirt that’s 66% bamboo. Apparently, the plant’s fibers have good moisture-wicking and antibacterial qualities.

Scoreline: Haas lost to David Ferrer 6-3, 6-0 in the first round of the Dubai tournament.

Buy: K-Swiss Bamboo Shirt, $36.99.

a trimmed andy murray overcomes roger federer

March 4, 2008

Andy Murray has finally emerged from the brink of injury — the one that caused a family feud — with a convincing win over Roger Federer in the first round of the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships. He grinded his way to a 6-7 (6), 6-3, 6-4 win, using a playing style that Roger criticized. Is Roger offering advice or is he being a sore loser?

Samson in reverse:
I’m all for letting men grow out their hair, but I am relieved that Andy’s finally cut down a little bit of that mop. He should buzz it all of for the summer swing.

A black bag: Here’s a new, more muted Nike duffel for the World No. 1. And in case you’re keeping track: Federer has yet to win a title this year. And he’s unsure about participating in the Olympics. But wasn’t Beijing his excuse for not playing Davis Cup? Hmmm

rafa leaves his mark at the top of the world

Okay, Rafael Nadal earns some brownie points with me by leaving his mark on the Burj Dubai, which will be the tallest artificial structure in the world once it is completed later this year. The 160th floor of the skyscraper will sit at 2,066 feet above ground level!

Nadal is taking part in this week’s Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships. He struggled in the first round but got by Philipp Kohlschreiber 3-6, 6-1, 6-4.

I really like that white Nike tee on him. If you know where we can find it, leave a comment.
