G'day, g'day, how ya goin'? What ya know?

If you've been paying attention at all, you'll already know of a few things that hold a special place in my heart (consider 'in my heart' and 'in my pants' to be interchangeable here....well, always). You know I have a longstanding love of underpants. I think that is what first brought a few of us together, actually. Also, I've played tennis since I was a kid. Playing it, watching it, reading about it--all good. A relatively new fondness of mine, that is growing exponentially, is for all things Down Under. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi! So, if you combine all three, as the brilliant folks at Bonds were so kind to do, and stick former Aussie tennis pro Patrick Rafter in some nuthugging boxers, well, what can I do but stand and salute. Really. I have no choice.

There's a whole series of these adds with our Pat, plus tv ads. He's a great choice from a marketing angle. Chicks and gay guys want to do him, straight guys want to be his mate, and I'm sure he's popular with not just the sports crowd, but you grandma and your little niece too. He comes across as such a likeable guy, then layer on the hotness and well, hello marketing gold!

PS. I'm wearing Bonds hipster trunks right now, can you tell? Best fitting and most comfortable undies ever!

Michael said...

Did I ever tell you about the time when I wished him luck in his match and he said, "Thanks, mate!" Like right to me. Did I ever tell you that? ;-)

The Other Andrew said...

Yes, I remember. Did you lick him? You wanted to, right?

(What, no comment on my hipster trunks? They're khaki, pseudo military stizz... Size small. Fit in all the right places...)

Michael said...

I'm at work. More on your drawers in a sec.

Bodhi said...

Yes, yes, Mikey, you did tell us that [rolls eyes]

Pat indeed comes across (and I have no doubt actually is) a really genuine and sweet guy. And though he is quite the hotness, I must agree, he not really my type as such.

Now Thorpedo, on the other hand, can I just say Oh .. My .. Brad.

If I could ever get my hands on that jewellery and underwear launching, Armani wearing, social pages engaging, fashion show attending, so called metrosexual, I would finally get to the bottom of that boys sexuality once and for all.

Ian sweetie, Dude, your gay, helloo!. Call me.

[Size small, TOA? Its only because I love you that I will refrain from making a bitchy comment on that one ...]

Jen said...

TOA did you just say stizz? Oh my god it's true, the American Hegemony's Hellmouth is in Ohio.

The Other Andrew said...

See what I mean, you're nasty today Bodhi.

The Other Andrew said...

Chalk one up for American Cultural Imperialism. :-)

Bodhi said...

Hmmmm, you could be right.

The Doctor did take a blood sample from me yesterday. When I call her back in a few days for the results do you think I should I ask if my bitch count is up?

Is it 5pm yet?!

Michael said...

Love the military-stizz. My board shorts du summer were camouflage. Nothing better than u-pants that fit in all the right places.

Rafter is on a stick, B, but I know he's not your type (i.e. unwaxed). I do loves me some Thorpedo, though, too. There was a great picture of him with a very hot gay outfit on AND black nailpolish. Lemme see if I can find it.

Worked sucked balls today and I'm supposed to be finishing some work right now. Instead I'm here AND watching Laguna Beach. It's Prom, yo.

Michael said...

I think it was someone at TMFT who said that Laguna is like the Anti-Dawson's Creek. That is SO right. These kids have NOTHING to say.

The Other Andrew said...

If your work sucks balls, that's like a bad day, right? I seem to be getting mixed messages on that one... :-)

Fags and camo - not sure why, but it seems to be a natural fit. The knee length camo shorts (in greys especially) are everywhere here at present.

Thorpy can look really cute, but shot from some angles looks really not cute sometimes. Now he's getting older, and when he hasn't waxed his chest and has a bit of hair going, he's definately getting better looking. IMHO.

Michael said...

Mine are grey, too. Or were. Summer is long gone here.

That's the link for Thorpe in some definitive gay vagueness.

God I totally dug him when I was younger. However my new fave tenis dude is, and always will be Andy Roddick.

But I'd never kick Pat outta my bed, oh no.

Michael said...

...American Hegemony's Hellmouth is in Ohio

I love you most when you are making me look up words, jen. As you'll soon learn, Ohio ain't the devil's doorstep for American hegemony alone.

Michael said...

Always will be, wingedman? You know as well as I that forever is a might long time. There'll be some new beefy morsel around any time now. That reminds me, I still have shirtless shots left on my phone that I haven't been sharing. Do you still love me when I'm remiss?
