They're not especially responsive to verbal commands, they think everything...

Video: Squirrel Takes Center Stage at the US Open

The excitement of the tennis at the US Open is driving fans to nuts!  So much so that a squirrell ended up taking center stage during a match between Sabine Lisicki and Vera Dushevina.  (Get it? Squirell..nuts?) Bad joke aside, no one can deny the fancy footwork on that little guy.  He must have given Sabine some tips as she took the match 6-2. 7-6 (3).  Enjoy!
