Hooray For Andre Agassi

andre-agassiderek_zoolanderAndre Agassi was honored last night at Arthur Ashe stadium on opening night of the U.S. Open for his work at the Andre Agassi College Prepatory Academy in Las Vegas, which probably helps kids prepare for something, I guess – maybe college – I didn’t read the article.

But the name of that school sure is a mouthful, isn’t it? I say if a kid can memorize the name, they get a diploma. Because at the Andre Agassi College Prepatory Academy For Children Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too, they teach you that there’s more to life than being really, really ridiculously good at tennis.

That was a long way to go for a Derek Zoolander reference, but I think it was worth it.

For Agassi, Cheers for Work Off the Court [The New York Times via The Big Lead]
