size does matter

Giant-Microphone-USOpen09

We guess everything is bigger in New York City. Or wait, isn’t that Texas?! In any case, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we laid our eyes on the chair umpire’s microphone Wednesday night during the Roger Federer-Robin Soderling match.

Are they for real?! That thing is so big it needs its own neighborhood name in Queens. We’re thinking Mico. Or GiMiVi (Giant Microphone Village). 

Supposedly tennis’ biggest stadium also needs tennis’ biggest microphone. What’s next? Tennis’ biggest line judge chairs?! Reminds us of those couches in Charleston, which you can see after the cut.
