Image Is Everything To James Blake


When I was a young tike, I thought Andre Agassi's flourescents were about the coolest thing in the world. Much of my self-esteem was derived from owning a pair of the shoes pictured at the bottom of this poster, even if I couldn't get them until long after they were considered cool. Okay, I'm wearing them right now.

Anyway, James Blake came up with this homage to Agassi last night, and I couldn't think of a finer tribute. James Blake might have just become my new favorite tennis player, and if he manages to come up with a dirty blonde mullet at some point, he might just become my favorite athlete of all-time.
