Men in black - how stupid can you get?

I have noticed that a surprising number of players use black clothing and even black caps in very hot weather. Yesterday, Tipsarevic looked like he was going to melt away in his black outfit. Federer today wears navy blue despite temperatures around 38 degrees in Melbourne (maybe he thought such things don't matter when you play Verdasco).

As a frequent tennis spectator, I know what a huge difference the colours of your clothes make for your wellbeing. Wearing black in these weather conditions is simply stupid.

Any 12 year old knows that black absorbs heat whereas white reflects the same. Can someone please tell the players?

I thought it was only about 22 today

Difficult to disagree with the rest of your post though

Agree wholeheartedly. Sometimes It's all about the little things.

You are right, my mistake. It was very hot yesterday in Melbourne and it is 40 degrees in Sydney right now so I thought it was still as hot in Melbourne.

Well if you see a guy at a tournament with white shirt, white shorts, white shoes and white cap, come up and say hi to me! I understand Norwegian!

Re: Men in black - how stupid can you get?

they warm-up right? so black is good.

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Re: Men in black - how stupid can you get?

Black is in this season, look at the new nike collection

http://store.nike.com/index.jsp?coun...archList-black

Place your bets and take a chance now!
Just make sure the Odds and the Gods are on your side!


Suppose it is not that case there is a God. Then time is infinite, and you are an empirically finite collection of chemicals. Since time is infinite and your youness is finite, then you have had infinite occurrence, and infinite variation. Since you have been infinitely varied, you would have attained the ability to forward, or compile, your memories. Yet it is not the case you have infinite regression of memory from time immemorial.
Hence, God exists.
