    Pilot Pen Tennis Finals

    I'm so glad James Blake and Mardy Fish are in the men's finals today. The J-Block should be in full force in New Haven!

    My son and I have tickets to both the men's and women's matches; we're both rooting for Blake and the women's final should be interesting. The #1 seed Kuznetsova is up against an 18-yr. old from Hungary.

    Pilot's shouldn't be writing when they're flying a darn plane.
    Pardon, for us.

    I stopped at Dunkin Donuts the other morning and there was a Pilot Pen Courtesy Car parked out in front. Of course it was a Mercedes... if you're going to have a courtesy car, what the heck, it may just as well be a Mercedes.

    Yes, they have LOTS of Mercedes parked inside the facility for ogling.

    I went to the tournament Wednesday afternoon, and had a good time. I'm thinking about going tonight too.

    I went to the final a couple of years ago when Blake won. Everyone was going crazy.

    I checked the price tag for one of them. $126,000.

    Whoa.

    We just came home between finals...too hot to stick around. My son got into one of the cars and mercifully, there wasn't enough head room for him.

    Blake beat Mardy Fish 7-5, 6-4. Blake should have won by more, because he allowed Fish to break back when he was up 4-1 in the 2nd set.

    I couldn't believe how many times they broke each other! But no big surprise in the end that #6 in the world beat #50. Great warm up for the Open, though.
