Roger Rings Bell
By Tennis Week
08/18/2005

Roger Federer is ready to make some noise in Times Square next week. The world No. 1 isn't planning on commandeering a cab or joining local tourist attraction the Naked Cowboy in a karaoke contest. Instead, the Nasdaq-100 Open champion will ring the opening bell for the Nasdaq Stock Market on Thursday, August 25th at the Nasdaq Market Site located at 4 Times Square on 43rd Street and Broadway.

Federer, who visited Times Square the day after he captured the 2004 U.S. Open to pose for photographers with his U.S. Open title trophy, is scheduled to appear at about 9:20 a.m. Tickets to the 2006 Nasdaq-100 Open go on sale Monday, August 29th by phone. Please call (305) 442-3367 to purchase tickets for the tournament, which will be staged March 22nd-April 2nd at Key Biscayne's Crandon Park.

YES! Finally, I'll be able to watch Roger without my father telling me to "turn off the damn tennis and do something useful."

Besides 1st, 2nd....etc. Street and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th....etc. Avenue they also have streets with real names in New York City and other cities in the US. :p

I find it useful when there are numeric street names, like that you don't get lost that easily. :p

I'd get so lost if the streets in german cities had the numbers :p I think numbers wouldn't work in germany since the streets in cities here are not arranged like the streets in most amercian cities who have that strict square pattern.

Do you know Mannheim? The city center there is made up of neat squares and streets have names like "A 3", "C 4" and "K 7". I've never had to find my way around there, thank goodness, but I'd get totally lost anywhere, no matter the street names. :lol:

That's right, I can't think of any European cities that could have numeric street names without confusing people.

Not all cities in the US are arranged in grids and not all of them have numeric street names. In a small town for example there might be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Street running Vertical and then Named streets running horizontal.

I don't think I've heard of any other US city with as many numeric street names as in NYC.

Well if your cities are a lot older and developed naturally without someone imposing a grid of streets then it could be more confusing to name them as numbers. For me in the US the real confusion are the high ways not the city streets.

:lol: yea I know mannheim but it's not the streets names. It's the names of the blocks, so the streets there have no names. Look

The highways are really confusing sometimes because of the exit numbers. :rolleyes:

Well, it's cool. But, when I first read the title, I also thought it was going to be for the NYSE.

:lol: How can the streets not have names (or numbers)?! So if you lived there or had a shop there or whatever, what would the address be? :confused:

OK so no one wanted to play the trivia game. Monics Seles rang the opening bell on August 27th, 1998. Here's what happened:

"The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 357 points, its third largest point drop ever."
