I know but they usually have something on wednesday night, not an official "champions dinner" but a pre-draw dinner thing, like that was where people said Haas may have been poisoned so it remains unclear if they do both, or just move it to sunday when it's the final

It also doesn't really matter that much

Let's focus on the important things..... such as the fact that Andy's wearing normal black shoes

oh i wasn't saying this was important or not, just thought people were confused where those pictures were from, and if there was a dinner at the end or not.

just thought it'd be nice to say...

this is good
==============================
This cheer is for U.S. tennis, in case you hadn't noticed
By Mike Lopresti, Gannett News Service

This just in from Davis Cup tennis, for all those who didn't spend a lot of time last weekend with the Versus network.

We beat the Russians! We beat the Russians!

Doesn't exactly pack the same emotional wallop as, say, Miracle on Ice, does it?

But the mission today is not to let the achievements of the Yanks at the net go unnoticed, lost among the NFL races and bowl selections and NBA scores and baseball trade talk.

Good grief, in some news outlets, the Davis Cup couldn't even beat out hockey.

Too bad, because this is a nice story. The U.S. men are finally back on top after a prolonged drought since 1995, which was even longer than the Ryder Cup in golf. And the golfers have received much more publicity for getting clobbered.

Fact is, this nation might have all the expensive youth tennis clinics any minivan-driving parent would want, but we still haven't been able to beat Croatia or Spain.

To change that has taken unwavering commitment by team captain Patrick McEnroe. Plus unselfish resolve from star singles players Andy Roddick and James Blake. Plus the deft doubles work of twin brothers Bob and Mike Bryan, Californians who were going to Davis Cup matches when they were 11 years old, waving American flags in the stands.

There the brothers Bryan were Saturday in Portland, with a chance to clinch the trophy. They are not the most famous of faces to the masses. Any non-tennis aficionados who happened to click to Versus — probably looking for the show on duck hunting — might have been baffled about who the good guys were.

First hint: Our team was probably not the one with the guys named Nikolay and Igor.

When they finished off their big victory, one of Bob's first acts as champion — so he later informed the media — was to go into the shower and throw up.

You just can't buy priceless memories such as that one.

"We're definitely lifers," Bob said of the Bryans' dedication to the Davis Cup. "Why wouldn't we want to be out here playing for our country?"

Best not to let such patriotic purpose be totally obstructed by Oklahoma beating Missouri.

Plus, the Americans had a flair for the quip. Once the lead was 3-0, the issue was settled, even though two singles matches remained. Someone asked if anyone was worried about making it a 5-0 sweep, just for show.

Answered Blake, "We're not the Patriots."

Tennis sometimes comes across as a stage for egotistical head cases. When guys this good gather for a team effort, with money not the carrot, that ought to mean something.

"I think we're doing everything we can," McEnroe said. "We're putting on a great event. The guys are into it. If the rest of the world catches on, great."

One problem, of course, is there are probably as many people who understand nuclear fission as understand the format of the Davis Cup. It is like one of those music tapes that never stops playing, going on constantly.

With its world group playoffs and zonal competitions, the system makes the BCS formula read like Fun With Dick and Jane. To become champions this year, the Americans had to beat the Czech Republic on the road, Spain in North Carolina, Sweden on the road, and Russia in Portland. What ended last weekend began last February.

What might be nice is to stage a more streamlined event less frequently. But the Davis Cup goes back to 1900, so maybe tennis doesn't need the advice.

But even if trying to understand the tournament can leave your eyes glazed, or your entire tennis attention span lasts only as long as two weeks at Wimbledon, could we have a round of applause for the champions?

By the way, the 2008 Davis Cup begins in February. The U.S. must play at Austria. Please, don't ask why.

Did you notice one of the twins trying to give his medal to everyone else? I loved that. He tried to put it on Mardy and Robby and Donald Young and then I stopped watching him trying to give it away.

There was definitely no dinner on Wednesday. I was in the hotel with all the media people and they had HUGE signs everywhere detailing what was happenning during the week, and the only dinner was on Sunday.
