Now that the buzz has died down a bit over Nicholas Mahut and John Isner’s 11-hour marathon match, the pair have to do something to keep the good times rolling, especially since each is now watching Wimbledon from his own couch.
In honor of Isner’s appearance Monday night reading David Letterman’s Top 10 List (CBS / 11:35 p.m. Eastern), I humbly present my own list – the Top 3 products Isner and Mahut should try to reach endorsement deals with to keep the walking around money flowing long after the interview requests stop coming.
Drum roll, please?
3) Any high-end jewelry chain – Diamonds are forever, just like the fifth set.
2) Energizer – Like the battery, the match just kept going and going and going. The spot could win a CLIO Award (the Emmys for commercials), if it ends with Isner decapitating the annoying pink bunny with an 135-mile per hour serve.
1) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – Isner is snacking on peanut butter, Mahut on chocolate as they walk to the court to do some light volleying. A collision ensues, neither can admit it was their fault, and they spend the next 138 games arguing over “Your peanut butter got in my chocolate!” “No, your chocolate fell in my peanut butter!”
