    after the match wayne bryan made his sons hold hands with the ball kids and play a game against one ball kid. then to hold hands with the security officers :p

    at one point between matches he was feeding balls to this girl and said if she made 5 in a row he would buy everybody in the stands a cheeseburger from Becks prime, the ball girl made the first 4 then on the 5th ball he hit it really hard out of her way :p

    I just got back from river oaks, getting there around 6pm to catch the Tommy Haas match. I got some amazingly great seats and to my surprise taylor dent came by and sat in the seat 1 row down from me. then jesse levine came by to talk with taylor dent. On changeover i said hi to taylor and as i was sitting right next to jesse levine i said hey jesse" he said, how's it goin. it was great see'in taylor and jesse, and not to mention taylor's manager's wife and taylor's wife :^).

    After the Haas match I watched the Dent-Canas match, it was a very good match as well. but the real fun was after the match, the Bryan Brothers were on the drums and keyboard and Wayne Bryan was doing the vocals, blending in with the crowd i walked into the VIP only area and jammed along with the bryan twins. I swear these guys are as good with their music as they are with their tennis. It was SOOO MUCH FUN.

    Pics to come soon: I have to email them from my cell phone

    i forgot my camera that day and had to take pics w/the cell, (too bad my cell batteries got too low to take pictures of the bryans playing in the band. That was the best part of the night, Wayne bryan is an excellent singer btw, lots of fun)


    yah these pics are from thursday, I wasn't able to go today though, tomorrow and sunday for sure though :)

    yeah at night it filled up, i'm sure on sunday its going to be packed, this was a weekday (well actually there are lots of seats (bench seats) for the "regular chaps", and for the "guests of the family" there are the chairs, its a country club after all
