Something a little lighter in tone is probable appropriate.
Here is an image I took a long time ago at a Canes Game. It remains one of my favorite images. When we were sitting in the stands that game the whole section broke out laughing at this lineup for a faceoff. I wish I had caught the look on Ray's face. Priceless! How about yours?
Or care to provide a caption for this one?
How about: "Now....how tall did you say you were exactly?"
