Behind the Strings [8.26.10]

The US Open Tennis Tournament begins this weekend. But not all the professionals there will be on the courts. 40-year-old Joe Heydt had been stringing tennis racquets at his tennis shop for almost two decades and he will be at the Open stringing for the pros. Also in this episode, Tim and Adam were work buddies who liked to joke around with each other often. Tim decided to play what he thought was a harmless practical joke by calling Adam and pretending to be a mobster who was after Adam. And, When Dick interviewed Jerome Boykin after Hurricane Katrina, Jerome was sweeping big box store parking lots. At just 27, he'd become a millionaire. Today, Dick checks in with Jerome to find out how his life and his business are faring 5 years after the big storm.
