good idea, michelle

First serve, first lady: If there is any woman in the world that Serena Williams might be OK with being upstaged by, it’s First Lady Michelle Obama. The FLOTUS brought along daughters Sasha (holding sign) and Malia to a Washington Kastles World Team Tennis match last week in DC, the trio enjoying Serena’s first competitive tennis on US soil since the 2009 US Open. TSF East felt like taking a cue from Mrs. O — we’re off to the New York Sportimes’ match against the St. Louis Aces tonight in NYC, with a little Chris Evert exhibition thrown in the mix.

happy day, everyone

I’m not going to lie; part of my excitement with this new administration is seeing how Michelle Obama will affect the world of fashion. Who’s going to end up with the best coverage of her fashion choices? People have begun, but we don’t have a go-to guy yet. If you’re already reading (or writing) a blog or column, send the URL my way!
