niners win!!!

so the defense got it done in the first quarter and pretty much that was the game. the offense has a lot of work to do, and knowing this was our defense not at full strength our opponents should be scared.

us open

it's been like 7 years since i've been back to the us open and my first time at arthur ashe stadium. last night saw an epic legends exhibition and arguably the best men's tennis player ever almost get bounced by a frenchman. i was rooting for the latter.
(top left to lower left) james black, john mcenroe,
mat wilander and jim courier

roger federer in black and gael monfils in green
still on a us open high i trekked down to brooklyn bridge park where amex set up a big screen. i watched both women's semis.

the fault in our stars

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

it seems like everyone loves this book and it has been spoken of aside my fav young adult book of last year "eleanor and park," so i had to read it. i have to say it's not your typical kid with cancer book and i should know. i used to read quite a few of them as a child. what can i say? i had a weird thing about books about terminal illness. anyhow, it was enjoyable and a fast read. a bit predictable but not your nicholas sparks kinda predictable. it seems as though the big c has enter quite a few of friends lives and this little story was a very small window into what they might be dealing with.
