John Isner’s grandfather puts his ‘Body Issue’ photo on a T-shirt

It is not uncommon for athletes who appear in ESPN the Magazine’s “Body Issue” to catch some flack from their friends when the photos hit the stands. It probably is uncommon, however, for that grief to come from one of their grandparents. Tennis star John Isner knows all about that.

The gentleman you see in the photo above is Isner’s grandfather. Apparently he and some friends decided to heckle John in fantastic fashion by plastering one of his “Body Issue” photos on a T-shirt and wearing it around. Therefore, we have come to the conclusion that John Isner’s grandfather is the man.

Now all he needs to do is strike the Cam Newton pose like Isner did after a win last year. The Superman pose combined with the “Body Issue” shirt would be an earth-shattering combination.

John Isner Picks His Nose, Announcer Says He’s Picking Up Confidence (Video)

Over the weekend, John Isner had to reach deep within himself to find confidence.  Without confidence, you can’t win in the world of sports.  That is especially true with a sport like tennis.  You can’t rely on your teammates.  There are none.  It’s all up to you to become the victor.  In his first-round Australian Open match against Benjamin Mitchell Monday in Melbourne, Isner went digging for confidence and the announcers knew it.  Check out this video that the Wiz of Odds shared with us:

Game. Set. Match.  The bottom line is he didn’t eat it like this little girl or this grown man.  At the end of the day, that’s all that matters.
