...during Federer/Henman match:

"Rogers is so solid, so liquid, that's why he's such a gas to watch!" Holy moly! :confused:

The only thing missing is plasma and Rogers would have covered all four states of nature in Carillo's mind. :o

Has anybody heard anything else so over-the-top from her?

:haha:

My mom and I got into a discussion about the word gas after she said it. I was saying "Does that mean when you watch it you pass gas?" (obviously joking :tape: :lol: )

Iwas so distracted by the word gas that I forgot how she called him a liquid, solid, and gas :lol: :haha:

I was so distracted by the word gas that I forgot how she called him a liquid, solid, and gas :lol: :haha:If I try hard, the best I can make of it is the following:
solid - in the sense that Rogers controls the court and nobody gets past him;
liquid - in that he moves like a fluid all over the court;
gas - in that watching him can lead to an or_gas_m. :tape:

No wonder your mom couldn't truly discuss the last one with you! :lol:

Um, I don't know if you are joking about the last one, or not; doesn't seem like it. "Such a gas" is a colloquial phrase meaning that you get a thrill out of something. It's probably from the 60's-70's........ maybe people are too young to know it?!?!? :confused: It does not have anything to do with an orgasm (or passing gas) :rolleyes:

Not really, its more about Mary than Roger ;)

And men's tennis still doesn't belong in Non Tennis :p

I don't think Mirka and Roger have the sex.

And men's tennis still doesn't belong in Non Tennis :pThis is a real conundrum. Mary is not in women's tennis either; she's just a commentator at the moment. :p
Anyway, I got "moved" a couple of times from GM and I didn't want it to happen again.

Well drake, thrill :shrug: orgasm, it's just a matter of intensity.

BTW, I was joking. Yet, I wasn't far out, was I? :)

I see what you mean; I wish the thread regarding the “retirement announcement of Andre” remained open in General Messages. Rules are rules I know, but it was such a major announcement and he is my all-time favorite.

Back to topic…


Well then, I consider myself lucky not to have Mary Carillo on Eurosport. No worries though, as Chris Bradnam fills the gap of idiocy in that area; making silly remarks about tennis players and bursting into laugh out of nowhere.

On the other hand, all credits to Sam Smith; she is a very precise, enlightening and fair commentator, quite respected by tennis fans in general…such a pleasant person to listen to. :worship:
