What a Racket! Journos Take to the Courts

Tonight, two teams — one the Stars and one the Stripes — composed of folks from Congress, the Administration, Ambassadors, national media and players on the WTT Champion Washington Kastles team will join together in Kastles Stadium for a memorable team tennis match with 100 percent of the ticket proceeds going to charity.

We hear Bloomberg White House Correspondent Hans Nichols and Chief Washington correspondent Peter Cook will take on the White House economic team: Alan Kreuger and Gene Sperling.

Peter is lowering expectations, complaining of blisters caused his new tennis shoes and his attempts to practice yesterday. Hans has brought his college tennis racquets with them (with tennis ball fuzz stuck in the strings).

Other newsies scheduled to participate in the event include ABC News’s Jonathan Karl and FNC’s Bret Baier.
