Sportif!: Derf Parties With The Big Boy Handball Champions
Crown Prince Frederik celebrated the Danish Men's Handball Team and their European Championship at Copenhagen City Hall today. Look at poor little Freddles, so diminished in the company of a band of highly trained, fully conditioned, professional athletes. Fred looks like their little pixie mascot, yelling "Sportif!" at the games. Did he put that on his IOC application? Alas, poor Derf can't even claim that he has attended many of their games in his life. See, handball really isn't his thing, even if it is Denmark's most successful sport and therefore highly popular with the home crowd. Freddles prefers tennis and sailing. The sports of kings and Olympians, not of Danish peasants. Mary has gotten to him, despite herself not being exactly très sportif, herself. Perhaps this is why he looks so hollow and out of place on the balcony of City Hall with the team captains.
