Terron Ishihara, engineering freshman
Zachary Workman, engineering freshman

Are you guys big sports fans?

Terron: No, not for me. I like playing tennis, but I don’t watch any.

You don’t watch any? How do you know how to play tennis?

T: (Laughs) I mean, I watched the people who taught me how to play tennis.

Zachary: He was born with the talent.

T: Yeah, I’m a natural prodigy.

Z: He’s Asian.

Do you know of any tennis players?

T: I know the big ones, like Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova. But I don’t actually watch any sports.

Do you think it’s ridiculous how women tennis players grunt?

T: How women grunt?

Yes, in tennis, they’re notorious for it.

T: They can be pretty ridiculous, but sometimes it’s attractive. (Laughs)

Oh, is it a turn on?

T: It can be, yeah. (Laughs) Like the Williams sisters have some pretty intense grunts.

So those are more intimidating than sexy?

Z: Those are turn offs.

T: I mean Maria Sharapova, she’s hot anyways.

Do you think Serena Williams could beat you up?

T: Yeah easily. (Laughs)

Do you play any sports Zachary?

Z: Oh God, no, I don’t. I like watching football though.

You’re roommates, right?

T: Yeah.

I guess he knows you best.

Z: I guess so. What is this? Is this “Punk’d”?

No, this is the Daily Wildcat.
