Andre Agassi Makes Appearance in Tyson's Corner

Besides being a world champion tennis player, Andre Agassi is a snowboarder, a cook, “20 + 20 years old,” and a humanitarian. Agassi appeared today at Fink's Jewelers in Tyson’s Corner to speak about his charity, the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education. This foundation has contributed $150 million to educational initiatives to date.

Agassi played in his first professional tournament when he was just 15 years old. What is the first thing that comes to Agassi’s mind when he thinks about tennis? Well, first of all “physical pain,” he joked after playing last night. But what tennis truly brings to mind for Agassi is the word “grateful.” He is grateful for what tennis taught him about himself, and he encouraged the children to push themselves in whatever they do because it will make them better people.

What's For Dinner Gerry?

Today Fairfax County residents had to choose between 11th District incumbent U.S. House Rep. Gerald "Gerry" Connolly and Republican Keith Fimian, who was Connolly's challenger in the 2008 election. Both Fimian and Connolly have stated that they are not taking this year's race for granted.

Voter turnout was particuarly important to both candidates today. As we all patiently wait for the election poll results to come in, Connolly's campaign headquarters at the Fairview Park Marriott of Falls Church, VA opens up the bar and the dinner buffet line to pass the time.
