As it turned out, this was one of the best editions of the U.S. Open that I've ever had the privlege (or the lunacy) to cover. More on that in the upcoming week.  But one of the main reasons for that was the sheer number of Tribe members who turned up, wrote, called, tracked me down in the press center or generally got together at or around the tournament. I can't name you all and wouldn't want to leave anyone out, so I'll leave it at that. We had a blast, though, right?

Also, while I see El Jon Wertheim, Steve Tignor and Tom "Tomahawk" Perrotta quite often, this year at the Open I also rode with Asad Raza, Andrew Friedman and Ed McGrogan; each of them made significant contributions to our coverage, and provided me with great company, both at the event and in those late-night drives back from the USTABJKNTC. Those guys rock and they know loads more about Tennis: The Game than the majority of the people in the press circles in which I usually travel. I'm really proud to be associated with this site, which may sound strange but that's just how I feel.

I think we delved into a few more off-the-radar stories and personalities at the Open than we have at previous majors, and that was a goal of mine. This is kind of a sloppy business; there are always 50 or 60 more stories floating around than you can cover or write, so you just load up and start shootin' and hope you hit something that will resonate or give readers something more than standard fare.

Blogging will be pretty light this upcoming week, although I have a few interesting surprises in store. Stay tuned and thanks for reading and commenting; y'all are the best!
