Joe Girardi is not impressed by the U.S. Open

Yankees manager seems really mad about tennis.

The Yankees had a day off in New York on Thursday, and manager Joe Girardi seized the opportunity to get away from the pressure of negotiating a playoff race with an aging and injury-riddled team plagued by scandal. The 48-year-old skipper took in some tennis at the U.S. Open, just a stress-free, chilled-out day of courtside relaxation.

From the looks of it, a few minutes into watching tennis, Joe Girardi remembered that he hates tennis, and maybe also that he somehow blames tennis for all the troubles he’s ever had in his entire life. Maybe Derek Jeter’s lower-body injuries all somehow stem from an ill-fated foray into tennis, or maybe Alex Rodriguez first met Tony Bosch in a Miami-area amateur doubles tournament.

Or maybe Girardi’s so exhausted from putting on a brave face and maintaining a cool attitude around his team all season that on the rare occasion he lets his proverbial hair down, the long-festering rage within spews forward.
