Ayy Ohh, Genie Bouchard Bikini Selfies, Comin’ Through
March 18 / Jake O'Donnell / SportsGrid
When you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in/around Boston or New York or Chicago, you post pictures of yourself drinking Guinness in some dingy pub basement. One of your eyes is probably half closed and there's just the faintest hint of vomit on your shirt, which is bright green and says something stupid, like "Kiss my shamrocks I'm drunk!" When you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Miami, however, the protocol is a bit different (and markedly less depressing).
The 42nd-best women's tennis player on Earth celebrated the holiday in the 305 by showing off not one, but two oh-shit-I'm-gonna-stop-scrolling-through-my-Instagram-feed selfies in a neon green and pink bikini. Sure, is it as authentically Irish as a cable-knit sweater and a pair of wool pants? No. But then again, taking half-nude photographs of yourself in the bathroom and putting them on social media is about as quintessentially St. Patrick's Day as eating a whole uncooked potato, so Genie Bouchard really nailed it this year. Well played, ma'am.
