View Full Version : Help Me Call Out A Teammate

So I'm minding my own business, waiting with my teammates for my 4.0 match to start. And I overhear someone say we only had six players so far. Then another lady said, "Cindy's not here yet."

I casually waved my hand and said I was there. And she comes up to me, lowers her voice to a conspiratorial whisper and says, "Are you Cindysphinx, from the tennis forum?"

:gulp:

Uh oh. I'm busted. This cannot be good, I thought. "Yeah, that's me."

Thankfully, she didn't punch my lights out or anything. She was very nice, in fact. We had a pleasant little conversation about something that has come up on this board -- no need to say just what. She put the pieces together and figured out we were teammates.

And then we took the court.

Now, I would be lying if I said I didn't have one eye watching her court, to see how she plays. Answer: She plays really well! My goodness. I saw lots of good shots and some fierce groundstrokes. It figures: She's an honest-to-goodness 4.0, not a 3.5 poser like me.

Anyway, she says she lurks here, and I don't know her screen name. Maybe if you guys make enough noise she will de-lurk and say hello.

Hello? Are ya out there?

Cindy -- stoked that we got the team win tonight and who played some Seriously Constipated Tennis

Cindy--we in NOVA and MCO know who you are, for some time now. Topaz too. Raiden also. Keep posting--it's great reading.

Hey, are you the teammate I met? Or another lurker?

And thanks for the kind words. Maybe we'll get a chance to play soon?

Hi Cindy!!

You are way too kind. Yesterday just wasn't in the cards for me and my partner. Let us all congratulate Cindy on her 4.0 win yesterday! Cindy, you have a great serve and your net game is awesome. Keep up the good work. :)

Wow!! Post Number One!! Huzzah!

Getting the win was nice, but my 3.5 partner and I drew two 3.5 players, so I can't call it a proper 4.0 win. Still, I've certainly been known to give away matches like that, so maybe we can score it as progress.

I hope to see you at one of the practices soon, 'kay?

Cindy -- secretly hoping the captain will pair her with Ksteph for a match or two because they would hand out a beating to someone for sure

I wonder how many people lurk around the forums without ever posting.

My guess is they have found us in tennislink. I doubt they know us personally, well me anyways.
