Okay now I wnat to hear this story Sapp ?
Thanks for the pics I am having Momo withdrawl bad .
Short but sweet story: after one of her matches, Amélie was doing her cool-down by running laps on the field. Mary & I were both there getting some (*cough cough* more
) photographs; there were two little kids with one of those over-sized tennis balls and they were collecting player autographs and really, really wanted Amélie's. Kids with good taste - who knew?
Anyway, they were sweet kids, so I told them that they'd have to wait until she was finished, but that if they yelled "Amélie, we love you!" as she ran by, they'd get a beautiful big smile (and we'd get the pics
). Sure enough, they yelled their little hearts out and Amélie turned up the wattage; they got the smile, and I got the shot. Adorably cute.
The funny part was that there were a couple of other "sisters" right next to us who saw & heard the whole thing, then teased us mightily about "Oh sure, steal someone else's kids to get the smile, yeah!" And of course we all had a laugh.
The even cuter part, though, was that when Amélie finished her laps moments later, Mary took the kids racing over to the far side of the field to get their autographs.
I defy anyone not to smile at that.
