Play was suspended earlier today at the US Open due to heavy storms and lightning in the New York City area. It brought to mind the question:
Don’t tennis players know their outfits are going to get wet?
Not from rain. From sweat.
Today was the most humid day of the tournament by far, and the players — male and female alike — were drenched, their clothes reduced to near transparency. Which begs a second question:
Do they consider this possibility when they chose colors?
Maria Sharapova and Caroline Wozniacki, who played earlier this afternoon, wore light grey and tan respectively in their afternoon match. After just one or two games, I could have sketched an anatomically correct map of not only their undergarments, but also any birthmarks, moles or particularly large freckles.
What gives, ladies?
I should really pass the blame to the clothing manufacturers. It seems like this issue should be part of their quality assurance testing.
So, I’m putting on my socks this morning — newly washed yesterday, gotta love freshly laundered clothes — and when I unrolled them, they were inside out.
And I put them on that way.
Now, I do this a lot.
Inside out socks do not bother me a bit. The only time I might take the extra time to turn them right side out is when I am headed to the airport and know that my socks are going to be on display in a most public way.
