At Last, A Photo That Proves My Theory: Yao Ming Is Taller Than Michelle Kwan

Glorious day, my friends. Glorious day, indeed. I have long suspected it, but never before did I have photographic evidence to prove my long-held theory: NBA superstar Yao Ming is a lot taller than figure skater Michelle Kwan. Sure, there was circumstantial evidence regarding their height disparity – the fact that Yao Ming is 7-foot, 6-inches tall and Michelle Kwan is five-foot-two being the primary one, but without them appearing at the same function, I never was going to be absolutely certain. But now I am. Thank you, photo op from a gala dinner Friday in Athens to celebrate the opening of the 2011 Special Olympics World Games. I can now put this one to rest.

Next up: locating visual evidence which proves another one of my theories: Shaquille O’Neal’s biceps are bigger than Sasha Cohen’s. I only wonder how those two will ever end up at the same place at the same time. Huh.
