I’ve been focused on tennis more than golf lately, and am fortunate to have a 14-court facility just down the street from me in Astoria Park. The Triboro Bridge snakes above, and the East River and Manhattan skyline provide a fantastic view.
Recently I got into a couple of pickup games with a new guy, who happens to have a pretty cool notch on his belt. Stephen Fuller is the creator of the iconic opening-title sequence of “Mad Men” — you know, with that haunting music and Don Draper plunging down a skyscraper — for which Fuller won an Emmy award.
There’s an extensive interview with him and his partners at a site called Art Of The Title, that features early storyboards, fonts and other details I’m sure you “Mad Men” junkies will love.
Too bad this guy can’t join us. — CC
