Champions Shootout - Tennis Legends and Lots of Fun

Shira and I didn't quite know what to expect from the Champions Shootout - a tiny tennis tournament made up of 4 all-time-great players. We saw Jimmy Connors, Jim Courier, Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras duke it out. For Shira, who started watching tennis when Agassi and Sampras were at the top of their game, it was a special thrill.

The night broke down like this: 25% serious tennis, 75% fun. There's no pressure on these guys, and they are glad to interact with the crowd and ball boys and girls. All I can compare it to was like going to a Harlem Globetrotters game. You're seeing great technique, but mostly, it's just a good time.

We had excellent seats and it was especially nice watching tennis in a climate controlled environment.

All in all, it was a pleasure to see these legends play.
