Roger Federer Shows Up at the Super Bowl
I wasn’t planning on blogging anything today, after all it is Super Bowl Sunday and there’s little happening in the tennis world. Sorry Fed Cup…
But to my shock while flipping through the 18-hour Super Bowl preview show on Fox just moments ago the cameras panned on the Red Carpet and who’s there strutting his stuff but Roger Federer!
First question, why the hell does the Super Bowl need a red carpet?
Second question, why the hell am I watching such garbage?
Third question, what the hell is Federer doing there?
Honestly, I had no idea the Fed was an American Football fan – I’m guessing he really isn’t. And I doubt he was in Phoenix for practice (though by his performance in Melbourne he could use some) or to sign some deals. Nor do I think he’s there as part of any official Super Bowl function like handling the opening coin flip or keeping Tom Petty’s shirt from malfunctioning. And even though Fed was in his black, I can’t see him playing…
Actually, I would bet he’s just there to sample the red carpet reaction in his black duds – he’s really into that whole fashion scene, maybe too into it some would say. I’m sure he’ll do some wining and dining with the celebs and execs, get some photos and then exit after the first quarter.
I guess even if you don’t win the Australian Open, if you are Roger Federer that’s what you do…Practice?
