Comments On The Serve

Space Invader

He's been subsisting on his patented Red Bull-Guayaki Yerba Mate formula for the last six days, but this morning, Scott broke tradition by ending his pre-match fast with a bowl of cereal. Yes, cereal. The carb-addled result is this giddy, Technicolor romp through our childhood memories that's taking the Layer Tennis world by storm. Game on, indeed.

Atari. Besides the obvious Pong reference, it offers yet another polarizing factor in this stirring battle. Scott wants you to choosing sides in the same way you've chosen your video game consoles. Hardcore fans know that Rob still plays on a '92 Sega Genesis. Which would explain why his fans have arrived at this match dressed as Sonic the Hedgehog in a sign of solidarity. But what about Intellivision? ColecoVision?

I see also, a series of hidden messages embedded in the swirls. Some pretty patterns that look like the linoleum in the kitchen of my parents' first house. What looks like a cassette tape. He has taken us back to a very specific place and time, a comfortable place. A place I'm not sure I want to leave.

Looks like it's your move, Rob.
