When I decided that I would write about this TV show of +Tom Daley's, I expected it to be nothing more than a good excuse to write a bit more about him and to have an even better excuse to post some pics of him. Well, I got a positive surprise by the show as such.
After last year's Harry Judd of +McFly fame in +Strictly Come Dancing (what the Americans call +Dancing with the Stars), this year we get Luke Campbell as an eye candy in Dancing on Ice. It is a hot and cold combination to behold. And I do think that he has a chance to be in it to win it, as boxers are such graceful movers (if you haven't been into boxing, then you should). And boxers don't come much sexier than Luke Campbell, too.
If you think +Tom Daley is sexy, then maybe you would like to take a good look at his teammates in Britain's diving team. Preparing for the London 2012 Olympic Games in Australia, they made a funny video. And they managed very well to show off all their muscles and other interesting parts, too.
In the United Kingdom, your business is made when you receive a Royal warrant. Warrants are granted by +Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales. The warrants accredit your business as a regular supplier to the Royal courts and attest the quality standard of your products and service.
+Novak Djokovic and +Rafael Nadal played an epic final in Melbourne's +Australian Open to establish the pecking order in men's tennis. In the longest grand slam final ever played, both players had their ups and downs until +Novak Djokovic established who has the longer stick. Beating +Rafael Nadal over five long sets, he defended his title from the previous year.
Australia's +Bernard Tomic was the featured teen boy in +Roger Federer's jubilee match. With 1,000 matches played in the ATP since 1998 when he entered the tennis circus as an excitable teen, Roger may not be the record holder but it is an impressive figure. At the Australian open, Roger was playing the jubilee match against Bernard Tomic, an excitable young teen playing for Australia.
The Internet was awash with the cover of People's Magazine showing Taylor Lautner (clothed) and the headline about his coming out. Many fell for it. Those that were caught in the scam sensation were definitely not People's reader. I can't remember it ever appearing on a Saturday as this cover purported to do. And special double issues appear twice a year in summer and at the end of the year; for mid summer it is a bit cold right now, and the end of the year is usually on the other side of New Year's Day. That is at least how I understand it.
I for one think an actor is an actor. If he is a good actor, then watching him play is fun, if he is a bad actor, well then it is definitely no fun. Bad actors don't get better just because they are good looking or sexy. But seemingly, there are people who think that if an actor is too good looking then his acting becomes worse. Someone understand this as I don't.
Buckingham Palace was facing a dilemma. How does One attach a medal to a naked cricket player? The Queen doesn't hold the necessary university degree to do nipple piercings, a Palace insider told me. In the end, Alastair Cook decided to appear dressed to the honors ceremony to receive his MBE. Some of the spectators were disappointed by that, I'm sure.
When writing a blog about pretty boys, the +Twilight saga has to be part of the deal. There are just too many shirtless teens running around in various sequences to ignore it. And I heard that some girls like it, too. But that might be only rumor. After all, cute boys usually are gay or bisexual, the heterosexual kind is called good looking.
It's that time of the year again. Not as good as Wimbledon, the ATP Masters Final is still worth watching. And it is well worth watching for tennis, too. This year, +Novak Djokovic, +Rafael Nadal, +Andy Murray, +Roger Federer, David Ferrer, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Tomas Berdych, and Mardy Fish are having it out in the O2-Arena. With so much talent, tennis should be of the finest.
