US Open Begins!

Opening Ceremonies last night in NYC

Hurricane Irene only interfered with one event at the US Open this weekend and that was the annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day on Sunday. Considering how bad it could have been and how bad it is for NC and VT, we can't really complain.

All of our favorites have been in NY getting ready for a week now and round one started yesterday.

CBS is broadcasting more than 37 hours of tennis on it's 44th year of doing so. We'd like to give CBS a round of applause. Thank you!

For those of you not familiar with the US Open in NYC, it's a BLAST. Forget tennis stereotypes of old. There is no just back-and-forth, it's a rip roaring ride! Rabid fans will be cheering and screaming day and night for their faves.

Night matches are famous in NYC for their excitement and fun. Who will ever forget Jimmy Connor's nighttime run back in 1991 and how awesome that was?

We'll be cheering for Big Juan Del Potro, Novac Djokovic and Rafael Nadal and of course, cursing out that stupid bitch Maria Sharapova and the horrid Williams sisters (while cheering who ever they are playing that day).

Tune in for for all the rounds every night on ESPN.
