It’s 11am! 11am! It’s starting!

Yes, I’m positively giddy and not in that fake way I usually am when I’m trying to write something entertaining even though I just paid $450 for a new lock. No, seriously, this is sincerely my favorite week of the year and I am just bursting with excitement. It’s the US open! Let me translate this for you non-tennis people.

Americans – It’s the Super Bowl and I have tickets!
Non-Americans – It’s the World Cup and I have tickets!
Non-sports fans – Check out other blogs!

Already, Brother2 took the chillins to Practice Day and they had their picture taken with Nathalie Dechy who you may remember from this post. And tonight, Pious B and I will be off to see the opening night tribute to Althea Gibson plus the Williams Sisters. Unless I can convince Pi to see some men’s matches. We’ll see. Already, Brother2 and I have begun parsing the schedule. I’m guessing I will not get to see Scoville Jenkins this year as he’s playing Roger Federer before I even arrive. Bye, Scoville!

Anyway, just to gear everyone up for the magic that will happen this week, or the stuff that will bore you to tears, here’s a refresher on my US Open coverage from last year.

Sigh. See you in a week. Or a month, I dunno, how long does this business last?

I’m very happy for you and hope you enjoy every moment, but it pretty much guarantees I’ll never see the Top Commenter spot again. And I had so much I wanted to accomplish during my term.

It’s two weeks but I’ll only be there one. But don’t worry! Non-consecutive terms are allowed.

So how was Althea Gibson night?

Thanks, Ima!

I’m writing that post right now, Alfa! We didn’t actually see that part, though.
