the ultimate u.s. open mishit


Attack of the killer bluetooth(ish) headsets: Kudos to Amex for enhancing the U.S. Open experience by providing mini-TVs (which you had to return) and radios (for keeps) to their cardholders; because unless you had a text-proficient posse roaming the grounds, it was hard to know when juicy matches were playing out, even just a few courts away. The radio also streamed commentary from CBS’ and USA’s coverage of the tournament.

The one downside: the leash on those radios. Not even the beautiful Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend could save it from looking totally ridiculous. Loose, wrinkled strips of white fabric dangled from ears everywhere I turned. Function over fashion, perhaps, but rip the strap of that radio as soon as humanly possible. Gnaw at it if you have to.
