New York City, pop culture, art and nightlife. Because nobody else is blogging about those things.

And this week, it saved us from having to watch the damn Republicans

Something that only tennis nerds will care about: tonight's just-ended Roddick-Djokovic match marked the end of the USA Network's 25-year run of showing the U.S. Open. The U.S. Open and that network's constant, day and night coverage is a tremendously comforting end-of-summer ritual in our house, it's on pretty much all the time for two weeks. As the New York Times tennis blog notes in its brief eulogy, I doubt any other network (ESPN? Ugh.) will capture that same kind of "hey, this is what we're showing all night, crack open a beer and hit the couch, hang out with Johnny Mac" attitude. Sigh.
