Be more specific, Becky.
Overheard in Sponsor Village
Man 1: I think you should grow a beard like Maddison Mckibbin’s.
Man 2: You think that would look good on me?
Man 1: No, but at least it would cover most of your face.
Overheard on Stadium Court
Friend 1: Is that Chase Budinger?
Friend 2: I don’t think so, the NBA season is about to start. He’s probably busy.
Must be a doppelganger.
Overheard during the Semifinals
Husband: I keep hearing the words “service” and “spike” and…
Wife: And you’re thinking about alcohol again, aren’t you?
Husband: We’re in Hawaii, Janet.
It’s vacation, Janet. Hit the Kona tent and try to relax a little.
Overheard in the stands
Fan #1: Bloody Mary’s tomorrow at 7am before her 8am match.
Fan #2: Really? That’s early, even for us.
Fan #1: You know what happens if we don’t complete our Bloody Mary ritual…
Fan #2: Nothing happens. We literally have no effect on if she wins or loses.
We all have our superstitions.
Overheard in DJ Roueche’s booth
Marketing Staff Member: Why were the speakers out on the outer courts? Generator went out?
DJ Roueche: No. Someone unplugged our speaker to charge their iPhone.
Fans…if you see equipment plugged in, chances are we need it and it’s more important than your charge levels.
