Regarding Palin's daughter, here's the best blog comment EVER:
wow, if she just turns out to be fat, you're all assholes.

CORRECTION: I may have spoken too soon about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's credentials:
Palin was a star at a young age in Alaska -- a member of the Wasilla basketball team that won the state championship (her aggressive style won her the nickname "Sarah Barracuda") in 1982 and Miss Wasilla two years later.

Sioux City All A-Gaga Over New Olive Garden
From my brother Bill:
This is pretty hilarious. "One reason for his excitement is the ample parking available." And note the pointed reference to the manager as a "bachelor."
In Sioux City's defense, I'm guessing this one is different.

It's matches like this -- Tommy Haas of Germany's 6-7 (3), 6-4, 5-7, 7-5, 6-2 victory yesterday over Richard Gasquet of France -- that keep me coming back to the U.S. Open year after year. (We're going to tomorrow's Night Session!) That Haas is an elder statesman at 30(!) -- and totally hot -- only made me cheer for him more. (Some of you may recall that Tommy was involved in a match three years ago that led to my starting this blog ...)

With concert tickets in hand for the upcoming Paul Weller show and feelers out for the Duffy on, it wasn't hard for me to shell out my $9.25 for the new issue of Q magazine with my two faves on the cover together. (There's also a BRILLIANT piece on the history and making of The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl classic "Fairytale of New York" that is a must-read.) While the cover photo hints at what's to come, I'm still thinking if a picture's worth a thousand words then there must be some serious outtakes somewhere that we're not seeing. Now I'm not saying Duffy's a fool, but Weller sure didn't suffer her very kindly in this tag-team interview. The poor, defenseless Welsh girl! And I say girl because of my absolute horror when I realized that not only was she born two years after The Jam disbanded, her first "memory" of Paul was listening to "You Do Something to Me" in a friend's car -- a song from his THIRD solo album (I'm still getting used to The Style Council being done ...) that she didn't even hear until she was in college (ouch!). But if you're a Weller fan, you won't want to miss his razor sharp tongue in action:
Duffy: (When asked about having a '60 influence) "... I never sat down with that in mind. I've just got to take it on the chin. Y'know, I am Dusty Springfield and, yes, I made a '60s record.
Weller: You don't sound anything like Dusty. (Pause) No offense.
Duffy: Well ... (flush of uncertainty), it's not my intention.
Weller: Just cos your name begins with a D and ends in a Y. They're just getting the three letters in between mixed up, that's all.
Duffy: I know. And I talk to people in all different countries and they're like, "You made a Dusty Springfield record." And it takes it toll, y'know?
Not nearly as much as this interview, I'm guessing. (More like The Bitch Council -- meow!)
Nonetheless, I still love my Duffy (I think Paul does too if you read between the lines). Her new single is the charmingly low-key "Stepping Stone," which you can watch below. Now I gotta get back to finding those concert tickets ...
'Take it all or leave me alone, I will never be your stepping stone ...'

A slew of familiar faces were out in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., yesterday to attend the 8th Annual USTA Serves OPENing Gala fundraiser at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Based on the photos, I think it's safe to say blondes definitely have more fun ...
