Concessions at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York are notoriously pricey, but that's still no good reason for fans attending the US Open to chow down on their own socks for nourishment.

A Deadspin reader snapped this photo during Donald Young's straight set victory over Juan Ignacio Chela at the Open on Sunday. Other possible reasons for this baffling display would be it's some kind of good luck charm for the spectator's favored player, or it's an ode to former UNLV basketball coach, and rabid towel muncher, Jerry Tarkanian.
