From ESPN: “Andy Roddick And Jimmy Buffett: An Odd Couple For A Good Cause”
When you think of Andy Roddick, you probably imagine a blistering serve and a fiery on-court personality, topped with on and off-court wisecracks. When you think of Jimmy Buffett, you probably conjure images and sounds of the tropical-themed, easy-going, southern-twanged beach crooner. Now, try to imagine the two men together and you get … well, you probably get confused.
But that’s exactly what’s happening, as Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band are set to play at Roddick’s “Fifth Annual Andy Roddick Foundation Charity Gala” in Austin, Texas. What’s fun is the fact that Buffett is auctioning off two VIP tickets to the event to raise money for Roddick’s charity. It’s an odd couple for a good cause, even if the image of Roddick slamming out a 130 mph serve while Buffett jams out his hit, “Margaritaville” makes us chuckle.
