    Mine has to do with how well I cover the court. I chase everything down and never give up on any ball. It is amazing what you can get to if you don't give up on anything and it's a good way to demoralize your opponent.

    A sundog is a celestial phenom whereby ice crystals in the atmosphere make it appear as if there is a smaller "sun" on either side of the actual sun. the term is used in a Rush song on the LP "Presto" called "Chain Lightning" -

    "... sundog's fire on the horizon ...."

    I saw one once while on a lift chair at Copper Mountain. It was the coolest thing ever.

    Was also the name of the last band that i was in.

    As per www.m-w.com;

    Main Entry: Agent Orange
    Function: noun
    Etymology: so called from the identifying color stripe on its container
    : an herbicide widely used as a defoliant in the Vietnam War that is composed of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T and contains dioxin as a contaminant

    Why? Because I thought it was a cool double entendre.

    Camilo Pascual was one of my favourite baseball players as a kid. I decided to spell the name wrong so people would know who I was referring to, but know it wasn't him. I was almost Willie Maze.

    Vash the Stampede is a character from Trigun. I haven't really watched it much but I'm called "vash" sometimes, and its my nickname in a way, along with "sheb" lol but vash sounds manlier so I chose that.

    What does "Aonex" mean? Is it pronounced "Ow-Necks" as in neck pain? :confused:


    EDIT: oh yeah, I've also wondered what NobadMojo's username meant.

    I live in rural Appalachia.
    The local yocals like to hunt and fish.
    I would rather play tennis.
    Sometimes I flashback to my baseball days and dive for balls.
    Ouch. That's blood.
    I guess that makes me a loco yolkl.
    My goal in life is to hit the perfect shot with either a Yonex or a Volkl.

    The 2M settlement was awarded in court, fella. Wasn't up to the Athletic Director.

    Oh, Duke is in Durham, not in Raleigh. Get your facts straight before you go on some ignorant rant. Rejection letters don't give you that right.

    Samba Pa Ti ( spanish for Samba for you) is a song I remember hearing on early morning radio when I was a kid, so everytime I hear it, it reminds me of my childhood sort of. It took me a long time to find out the title and that it`s by Carlos Santana...

    Hey Sambapati,

    Which is your favorite Santana album? I really love his doeble 'Moonflower'. Great mix of live and studio tracks, absolutely amazing album. And he's from the bay area...

    Tenny. Hee hee, I thought it's misspelled Samba party or something so far. Thanx!

    Actually, Samba Party isn`t a bad idea for a name either...
    As far as Santana Albums go, I actually don`t own any, and am starting to feel guilty about it. I do know most of his more popular songs though, and might just check out that album you mentioned, my musical tastes are as diverse as my tennis game (j.j.)

    Yeah, if you are going to try some of his albums, start with Moonflowers. It has many of his hits (as live track). Live and studio tracks are very smoothly sewed each other. Seamless. I don't like his recent stuffs very much. Some tracks from very early albums sound less structured (like Jam recording). Get MF.
