Billie Jean King Cup at Madison Square Garden

2 03 2010

Yesterday night my boyfriend and I went to the BJK cup and it was pretty cool. Participants were Svetlana Kuznetsova, Kim Clijsters, Venus Williams and Ana Ivanovic. The only spoiler on the night were two fat african american lesbians that had their arms around each other and sometimes when I moved, I touched their arms that were way over the seat and one of them got pissed at me. Well, I got pissed right back at that bitch and only than she backed off. The tennis made up for it though, definitely the last 2 matches. The first one was between Kim Clijsters and Ana Ivanovic and that was not on a very high level, Kim won 7-6 but showed that she was rusty after a 6 weeks dry spell on the tour. Ivanovic showed at times the brilliance that made her number 1, but was often very sloppy. The second semis was between Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova. This match was very entertaining and both ladies played great. Venus just came from a 2-in-a-row tournament win and played very solid and proved to much in the end for Kuzzie, 6-4. After that there was some entertaining and the class of 2010 for the Tennis Hall of Fame were introduced and Ivan Lendl and John McEnroe were in attendance as well. As fellow viewers I saw David Duchovny with daughter who acted really cute together and Star Jones with entourage of obnoxious attention-drawing people. The final was between Kim and Venus and was pretty good, Venus won 6-4 3-6 7-5 in the end and got $400000 dollar, Kim $300000 and Kuzzie and Ivanovic each 250000 for 1 set of tennis. Not too shabby.





Kathy Griffin, Madison Square Garden

Yesterday my bf and I went to see Kathy at MSG and it was as fun as I hoped and expected. With almost 2 hours on non-stop comedy it was well worth anyone’s money. She talks about all the gossip and TV-shows I love. A great story about Hoarders, the Real Housewives and ripping on Ryan Seacrest, Miley Cyrus, Tiger Woods, Jon Gosselin and the guys/girls from The Hills and Jersey Shore. That combined with personal stories about meeting Liza Minelli, New Year’s Eve with Anderson Cooper ¬†meeting his mom Gloria Vanderbilt and the always great stories about Kathy’s mom Maggie, this was a superb night. Most I laughed in a year, since her last show here.
