Andy the "Hero"

If we can start threads for silly pictures and names of cereal I think we can start one for this.

Andy's Recount of Last Night's Fire to Come Shortly
by: webmaster


5/1/2004 -- AR.com spoke with Andy shortly after the incident in Rome. As reports have indicated, Andy suffered no injuries, but is slightly shell-shocked by what took place. His recount of the story is mind-boggling, and his actions were truly heroic. Stay tuned as we will be providing much more information, including first-hand description by Andy himself.

Re: Andy the "Hero"

FYI, I put the fire pics up on RO.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Looking forward to read the recount.

Re: Andy the "Hero"

But I don't think that Andy was really a hero. That's a bit of hyperbole. I think that he helped people, but it doesn't sound as if he risked his life.

Re: Andy the "Hero"

I cringe at the word hero after its frequent abuse by propagandizing politicians and the sensationalizing media.

However, there is a variant on the word, "Gyro," which I find very tasty.

Re: Andy the "Hero"

How is "gyro" a variant of "hero"?

Oh and I don't like gyros very much.

Re: Andy the "Hero"

I think the thing is that considering the kind of person he is and the life position he's in, him going out of his way to help people in a situation like that is a little above and beyond. it is to me, anyway. I love it whenever I hear about a celebrity doing a really good thing like this. and thanks tangy

I agree. It's a lot different than "sacrificing" yourself for others but it's a great thing nonetheless.

Re: Andy the "Hero"

yep... so then I guess it just depends on your opinion of "hero"
