NCAA Champ Britton to Play Federer

The 2009 Men's U.S. Open Draw was announced today and right at the top of the draw sheet a pairing stood out to me.

#1 Roger Federer (SUI) vs. Devin Britton (USA)

The current NCAA Champ Devin Britton, who was given a wildcard because of his NCAA title will take on the greatest player of all time and he appears to be embracing it.  See his Twitter post:

The match, which will more than likely be a night match on Arthur Ashe Stadium Court will show a national television audience what the future of American Tennis might look like.  Nobody expects Britton to beat Federer, or even take a set, but it gives a promising young American an experience he will never forget. Should be fun to watch.




U.S. Open Draw Televised Live on ESPNEWS

Trying to capitalize on the popularity of televising such events as The NCAA Basketball Tournaments, The NFL Draft, and World Cup Soccer Draws, ESPNEWS will provide live coverage at 12 noon est of the U.S. Open Men's and Women's draws.

If you have never seen a draw made live before it can be interesting to see how the seeds are placed and how random the draw-making procedure is.  Listen for your favorite players name to be called, see where the qualifiers and wildcards end up, and see if Federer and Nadal or the Williams' Sisters are on the same side of the draw.


Wikipedia to Test Editing Procedures

Wikipedia has announced that they will test editing procedures on articles of living people, and although anyone can still edit entries, they will first have to be approved by an experienced Wikipedia editor before they appear to the general public.

This comes on the wake of embarrasing entries made that prematurely announced the deaths of Senators Robert Byrd, and Edward Kennedy.

Wikipedia has come under attack for a while for being too loose with their editing policies.  In the past, one could become an "Experienced Editor" after only a few days of use.

Viking's Locker Room Already Divided Over Favre

Looks like things are getting a little tense in the Viking's locker room, and what a surprise, it has to do with Brett Favre.

Players feel too much attention has been focused on Favre.  When Favre apparently retired for the third or fourth time over the Summer, some players felt a wave of relief.  Now they have to answer questions every day about a quarterback they hardly know, and many of these current Vikings were in the corner of Tavaris Jackson and his pursuit to be the Viking's QB.

Favre is scheduled to play the entire first half of this week's preseason game.
