I am, of course, speaking of the US Open Tennis Grand Slam event taking place in New York City even as I write this.
These are my top ten reasons to watch:
#10. Getting to watch footage of classic US Open matches during rain delays.
#9. Finding out what crazy thing Ernests Gulbis does or says next.
#8. Appreciating the fashion sense of the Williams sisters.
#7. Hoping that an American man will make it into the second week.
#6. Finding out if Novak Djokovic will make it through the tournament before his baby is born.
#5. Searching for celebrities in the crowd.
#4. The clever and funny commentary of the McEnroe brothers.
#3. Don't want to miss the irritating screeching noises of Sharapova and Azarenka
#2. Watching Roger Federer maybe win his 17th slam, with the help of his new Air Jordans.
And the number on reason to watch the US Open:
Mourning the absence of the great Rafael Nadal!!!
