flirting with punditry: the rooster’s demise

May 23, 2008

The Oregonian included yours truly in a piece they did about Le Coq Sportif shutting down its operation in Portland. I’m not at my most eloquent when reduced to quotes for a newspaper, but I’ll take what I can get!

Check out the second page, thankyouverymuch.


could this chanel racquet kill you?

May 23, 2008

If you are fat or a kid (or a fat kid), Karl Lagerfeld wants you rubbed out. For those that don’t quite offend his senses, the misanthrope offers a slower, more subtle catwalk to death in the form of Chanel‘s carbon fiber racquets. Do you want us gone, Karl? Hmmmm?

Maria wears the men’s version of this season’s Nirvana hoodie from Nike.

Buy: There’s also a women’s version available. Both at starting at $30.99.

Another tee.

Here’s the backside of that practice tee Roger Federer played with in Hamburg. Yep, that’s a picture of him hitting a forehand. Very meta.

And here’s a striped polo that he wore today.

On Rafa, a cute tee, but I don’t know where to find it. Instead, I offer some alternatives:

The Nike Challenge Court tees reissued. Get ’em here and here for $25 a pop.

Or the Heritage Summer tee, complete with Nike’s French Open logo (the rooster), also for $25 at

oh, Nole!

Did Justine get a stinker of a holiday home in Thailand?

May 23, 2008

The recently-retired Justine Henin picked up a condo unit with ocean views in Infinity Samui, a new gated lowrise development in Koh Samui, Thailand. The 65-unit development is due for completion in mid-2009.

But did Justine get duped into the PR campaign of a sinking ship? As this forum shows, constructin on the island has run into lots of problems, forcing developers to dump unfinished projects back on the market.

We hope we know what she’s doing!
