Reading the U.S. Open


Kids Off the Couch has a great suggestion for reading John Feinstein’s new young adult book Vanishing Act, which is a teen mystery centering around the U.S. Open, while watching the actual U.S. Open on television.

I must also say here that I’ve never really liked playing tennis, but received a new-found respect for the sport once I read a few of David Foster Wallace’s empassioned essays on competitive tennis. See “Roger Federer as Religious Experience” or read A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again.
