Among my favorite annual rituals is attending the U.S. Open (tennis) on Labor Day weekend with Sean, Eric, and Elizabeth. Tricia is invited but declines. Some of my New York friends have even gone along when we had a spare ticket or two.
If you follow my posts here and on Facebook, which I know everyone does faithfully, you know my mantra: “It is never just about the tennis.”
Sometimes, my friends, it is about the tennis.
