Well this one is truly odd. If you look at the back left hand side of the photo you’ll see what seems to be a lifeguard chair. Problem is – there’s no pool. In fact it’s just overlooking a parking lot.

    Sorry anon @10:19 I think you may be a bit crazy…

  • This would make perfect sense if life were a Gatorade commercial.

  • The match was over and all left when McEnroe went way over the edge and parked his car on the line asking the judge “Is this in enough for you??!?!!?!!”
