There is a new tennis facility literally next door to City Hall where he works, and this past weekend they hosted a tournament with celebrity tennis stars. Jay scored free VIP tickets to the 3rd place and championship matches. We were able to watch John McEnroe vs Michael Chang, and then Jim Courier vs Mark Philippoussis. It was so cool to see these players in person. I had no idea that there was even a league that these guys play in, but there is one called the Champions Series. A friend in the ward offered to watch Billy, so Jay and I had a wonderful 4 hours alone together! Billy's Layton g-parents kept him overnight the day before, so that was 2 "dates" in one weekend. I swear, we haven't been on a date since Jay's sister Julie came to visit us in McAllen over a year ago!
Back to the tennis match, we had the wonderful opportunity of experiencing a few infamous McEnroe "rants," and even got one on video (shot from a distance with my digital camera, so not the greatest quality, but McEnroe hams it up for the crowd, so you can hear him pretty well. My favorite comment, sadly not caught on video, was McEnroe's reply to a lady in the audience who said something about the ball being out. McEnroe said, "You're eighty; you didn't see it!" Alas, he was probably right; we do live next door to Sun City.
