Man squeezes into white skirt for Wimbledon serve

Postby owen » Sun Jul 16, 2017 5:50 pm

At this time of year we get to admire women tennis players and envy the freedom of their skirts, but one Irish man got to experience it for himself at Wimbledon when former champion Kim Clijsters invited him onto court to play a serve and, in accordance with the rules, gave him a white top and skirt to wear, which of course he did.

Hey, I would have kept the skirt as well - and the top. :lol:
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

In the video, he's "Cheesing it up" a bit ;)

I love his comment,

“My wife told me not to let it go to my head - you still gotta do the dishes!”

He did keep the skirt but his idea of putting it up for auction to benefit a local
charity is a wonderful thing to do.
