If you've been following the tweets of Boris Becker over the past couple of days (@TheBorisBecker), you'll notice a confusing and endearing habit of his to refer to himself in the third person. But because it's Twitter, he does it in abbreviated form, meaning "BB", as in "Into Level 14, average is 126, BB has 120".

That's weird when folks refer to themselves in the third person...

Another guy who does that a lot is 'The Rock'....

I was watching a televised TV poker tournament a few months ago in which Boris was playing. He didn't seem to know what he was doing too well. When I first realized it was the famous Boris Becker,....I was SHOCKED at how old he looked.... He's an OLD MAN!!!

I think the last time I saw anything of him was about 10 or 20 years ago... Smile

Those tweets from him must be very confusing for those who aren't into the scene of what he's talking about.

Sure,...but if it wasn't for the banner across the bottom of the screen,...and the announcers saying his name,...I wouldn't have even knew who it was...

Back in the day,...he was in the news weekly and looked so young and vital!!!

Maybe poker has taken its toll on him and turned him into a withered old man..... Big Smile
