  1. McGehee says:

    And the moral of the story is, never give your opponent a tempting target for his 200-mph serve return.

  2. Hermoine says:

    Tennis great, John McEnroe, tells OTB that he doesn’t wear his emotions on his sleeve anymore.

  3. The Doctor says:

    Angry over low wages and poor working conditions, Mexican workers begin exporting only “protest clothes.”

  4. Cybrludite says:

    Looks like he won’t be doing his “Pinnochio Telling A Lie” schtick during the Kornikova-Sharapova match…

  5. Crerar says:

    No – I do not want to see it stick its tounge out again !!!

  6. Kenny says:

    His shorts were determined to ensure that Amanda Monti (,,2-2005013091,00.html) wouldn’t have the spotlight for long…

  7. Bithead says:

    attempt #1;Word play:
    Never fall for a tennis player, because to them “love” means nothing. This is why.

    Attempt #2; Mildly rude:
    He’d not known about it, but he was scheduled for the installation of a third ball that day.

    Attempt #3; A reference to Abbot and Costello:
    “Oh, that’s our shortstop!”

    Attempt #4; Painful:
    “Tennis Players Do It With (ssssssSWAPPP!) (ooohh…) Ummm. (wheezing)…Never mind.”

    Attempt 5: More painful:
    (Hushed, English accented voice of a nature program announcer) “Watch closely. In but a moment, all three will be the same color…”

    Attempt #6; Both eyes in one socket;
    “But what Tom DIDN’T know was that the ball had a lead weight in the middle, and moving at that speed, would be able to dent a brick wall.”

    Attempt #7; The obvious:

    “Think of it this way, John… All the chicks in the stands are now looking at my crotch”
    “Yeah but so are the GUYS, Bill….”

  8. Jeff says:


  9. Anna S. says:

    Yum!! Dinner is Served.

  10. Anna S. says:

    Where’s the Beef?

  11. Scott_T says:

    Thank goodness the camera only got the front picture of Jesus’s tennis shorts, the rear picture showed the usual outcome of a man making that face sitting upon his ivory throne.

  12. Robert Mayer says:

    “It seems as if the impact has caused an equal protrusion from Sr. Barria’s backside.”

  13. Monica C says:

    When did under-roos come back in style?

  14. McTrip says:

    “I say, anyone for sphairistike?”

  15. Roger says:

    Captain Kirk saw the image on the screen, an image from some sports figuring during Earth’s 21st century. Perplexed, he turned to Spock.

    “Analysis, Spock!”

    “Captain, what we see here is a tennis player wearing shorts bearing an image of what is called a basketball, holding a tennis ball in front…of…balls.”

    “Spock! Balls?!”

    “Yes, Captain. If I was to mention the proper medical term, we might get sued by the FCC.”


    “You heard the man! Balls!”

  16. Mythilt says:

    Yesterday, Amanda Monti was let go from her job as a linegirl after she accidently grabbed the wrong ball.

  17. Hodink says:

    Anna Kournikova has tired of her sexy image. Now she wants to win at tennis by beating male opponents which she says she will do by eating their balls.

  18. Masked Menace© says:

    Oweing to the popularity of “better sports through steriods”, Mr. Para Smalwons’ shorts become jealous after remembering the good ole’ days.

  19. Jay Tea says:

    “Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.”


  20. Cassandra says:

    Humberto’s lucky tennis shorts served as a visible reminder of the dangers of taking one’s eye off the ball.

  21. Cassandra says:

    Photographic proof that, even in the tennis world, dropping the ball can be hazardous to your health.

  22. Cassandra says:

    The strange lump at the top of Mike’s tennis shorts provided the only clue to his heretofore mysterious nickname: Three ball Reilly

  23. Mythilt says:

    What happens when you feed your pants after midnight.
