I almost forgot to mention to folks that the actual US Open Racquetball Championships are being played in Minneapolis this week. There are some great photos, access to the schedule and all the brackets, and the daily news at http://www.unitedhealthcareusopen.com/.
Ruben Gonzalez ended his 32 year career at age 60 yesterday, refusing to forfeit the match after a leg injury and instead standing injured in the back court to take Daniel de la Rosa's last two serves. An incredible showing for a great professional athlete.
I take a lot of liberties with the actual set up of the racquetball championships that I write about. After all, I write fiction. But the real thing is even more exciting than anything I've managed to come up with. Enjoy this year's U.S. Opens!
