Busy week: My favorite things!

Last night, I attended the U.S. Open, courtesy of Nicole who was actually successful in procuring tickets at a reasonable price (an increasingly difficult task, thanks to scalpers).

US Open: Qualifying tournament

Yesterday, my secret friend Nicole and I headed over to Flushing Meadows to check out the last day of the U.S. Open qualifying tournament, which just happens to be FREE.  (Ben & Jerry’s on a stick, however, still costs $5.)

Yahoo! Sports

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why I didn’t feel too guilty about being a couch potato yesterday:  432 lbs. on your neck is no joke.

As someone who refuses to even attempt Crow in yoga, I award Germany’s Matthias Steiner an A+ for effort!  (And maybe insanity.)
