When Hanescu bowed out today (and he did seem to be hurting, especially after serving), we thought it was going to be a short day at Davis Cup. But while we waited for Bud Collins to interview Mike and Bob, the announcer said they were looking at putting together an exhibition match. At that point, the whole crowd looked at the broadcast booth, and started yelling "John McEnroe," "John McEnroe." John took off his coat and tie, and we thought well, maybe . . . We also thought that perhaps Rod Laver would come out, as he was there for the coin toss yesterday. And then Patrick McEnroe started hitting with the Bryans, and then a short while later it was announced that the McEnroes would take on the Bryans in a doubles exhibition. And the crowd went wild. In fact, if anything, ,there were more people in the stands then than there were for the earlier match. Bud Collins was designated the chair umpire, and the McEnroes took the court. It was one of the most entertaining matches I have ever seen. They played one set, winner to get 8 games. And they did all the usual gags. The McEnroes protested line calls, with hands of their hips. We were cheering them, yelling "You can't be serious." They were throwing racquets, and threatening the Bryans, saying they were going to lose their Davis Dup positions if they don't the Macs win. Now, Patrick is a bit rusty, especially with serving. But it was no problem, when he got down 0-40, John would step in as the designated server. And as Bud Collins said, for the Macs, they can take as many serves "as needed." But the Macs' volleying is still pretty good. And they were up 2-0, until the Bryans started getting serious. We had the cheers timed with the Bryan Bunch -- earlier we were yelling "Bob," and the other side of the stadium would yell "Mike." Now we were yelling "McEnroe" and they would respond, "Bryan." It was really fun. There were many humorous moments in the match -- but one of my favorites was when Patrick McEnroe hit an ace, and Mike -- or was it Bob? -- brought him the tennis ball he had hit, and Patrick presented it to his parents (who were in the stadium). Bud said that the ball was on its way to the Smithsonian. What a treat to see the McEnroes supporting Davis Cup this way. And at one point, Patrick put on one of the NetHeads, thinking it would bring him luck! This is what I love about Davis Cup. The stuff we saw yesterday -- with Andy leaving it all on court -- and today, with the McErnoes stepping in and making it a fun day -- it's what the sport is about. In the end, the Bryans won, but it just a great experience watching them, and especially watching the McEnroes trading volleys with the Bryans. There were some great points!!! And we were sad for Romania. In fact, we were all cheering on Victor for a while, until it was obvious he couldn't continue without perhaps doing further injury. Finally, there was another memorable moment today, when the Marines did the color guard, and a woman from the Marines sang the Star Spangled banner and just as she finished the last stanza, the Blue Angels screamed over the stadium in formation. It just gave us all chills. Something I'll never forget!!!
