Last night we had the option of one of the two most sought after tickets in town: one being to the MTV Video Music Awards’ return to New York, the other to what turned out to be one of the most thrilling, epic tennis matches in U.S. Open history: Andre Agassi‘s five-set, four-hour rollercoaster win over 21-year-old Marcos Baghdatis at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, Queens.
We chose tennis rock-n-roll tennis.
You can read more about the match here. It was about as loud and raucous as a tennis stadium crowd gets, but oddly enough, one of the loudest moments of the match wasn’t a response to Baghdatis’ on-court antics; rather, it was during a changeover, when Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly was shown on the jumbotron high above Arthur Ashe Stadium and was booed by, oh, 23,700 tennis fans.
To which O’Reilly grinned, of course.
