Wink You know you've made it when...

(I cannot believe I posted this in GM by mistake lol)
-----
you're used as a pop-culture reference in a soap opera.

This week on General Hospital two teenage girls (sisters) were plotting to make the younger one's ex-boyfriend jealous by pretending to have sex (don't ask why, it's s soap lol). Anyway the girl goes to her older sister "but I don't know how to pretend to have sex!" and the older sister goes "Just think of someone hot like Andy Roddick or something!"

I just looked at my friend and she started laughing at me, she was like "hey he's the one you like!!"

Re: You know you've made it when...

I was wondering where the "oops" came from. lol

Nice testimonial!

I agree. It IS a big deal, especially in the US where football and basketball are far more dominant sports. If non-tennis fans in the US know who you are, you're on your way to becoming a legend. (eg, Sampras, Agassi, McEnroe, etc.)

"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."

lol of course I see it that way. BUT, I think it may be a BIT premature to say Andy's on his way to becoming a legend lmao

I don't.
