LIFE: US Open 2011

US Open 2011 / 8-31-11
Last week I went to my first ever US Open event! My co-worker was generous enough to give me a ticket and invite me along.

I admit that before college, nothing but futbol (soccer) ever really interested me and that interest only peaked once every 4 years for the World Cup. Last NBA season I finally got into basketball and as a reason to party and drink, during college I got into football through the SuperBowl.

My mom's always been a big fan of tennis, but this was the first time I was actually interested in checking it out. I really loved the atmosphere and the crowd is definitely a lot different -- for starters there are plenty of foreigners (which I loved). Second, the food options are vast and the drink (alcohol) stands are top notch! 5 stars!

I got the chance to learn more about Tennis -- which is actually quite intense and definitely not as boring as I had once thought it was years ago. Although I did not get to see Maria Sharapova play due to the previous match, watching Andy Roddick play was plenty fun. It took awhile, but I think I've got most of the basic rules down.

US Open 2012? Definitely! Game. Set. Match!
