If you had to pick the waspiest event that Alec Baldwin‘s character from 30 Rock, Jack Donaghy, would attend, I think the U.S. Open (tennis version) would probably head up the list.

So it should be no surprise that Alec Baldwin not only attended the U.S. Open, but managed to be about as graceful and comfortable as possible in catching a stray ball that flew into the stands during the opening match between Marias Sharapova and Kirilenko.

Here’s the snag:

Baldwin doesn’t even smile when he makes the grab. He just gets the ball and squints, as if to say, “This is what I’m supposed to do. I don’t get emotional about it.”

Now think about what would happen if Aaron Paul caught a stray ball. He’d probably break into a version of the robot while “Whoomp! (There It is!)” played for the entirety of the tournament.
