    To be fair, each town is pretty big in Queens. I mean RP and FM are considered part of Flushing. As for any other information regarding my whereabouts, I'll leave that up to the imagination.

    Come on, man! Don't be afraid. 82nd Street near Northern Blvd.. This is just short of giving out my address. It's not like any of you will stalk me and even if you did, I know I can kick your ass.

    Exactly, my 27 year old friend. My town is small, and ain't no teeming metropolis like Jackson Heights.

    LOL Seriously, I'm not 27. I chose that number because it was the year Jessica Alba was born. I'm a late 80's baby.

    Are you telling me that your local club doesn't let you play in anything but whites?

    That's exactly what I'm telling you.

    In fact, because of this all my tennis clothes are white, so I look like a real ass clown when I play on other courts in the area.

    Oh you want to play me in singles, huh? I have to warn you, I gave up smoking so my lungs are back up to par. You're going down, my friend.

    Even worse, true New Yorkers don't have a license (me). Only cabbies and bus drivers do. Everyone else is "just visiting".

    Ever heard of a train, smarty pants? Walk over to Spuyten Duvyil and come on up, ya lazy ass.

    I used to play in NYC regularly, at Stadium Racquet Club in the Bronx. Which was just torn down for that stupid new Yankee Stadium. Occasionally I'll play at the US Open facilities, or Riverside red clay.

    And I just gave up my car last November. Not only do I drive, I drive stick! I'm not a true New Yorker in that sense. New Yorkers don't like to drive, but I used to go to the store down the block in my car.

    There was just an article like yesterday in the Times about New Yorkers who insist on driving in the city and owning a car.

    I quit my 25 year long, two pack a day habit two years ago. Life has kind of sucked ever since...

    I think Storm Holloway smokes too. Guess New York tennis players like them cigarettes.

    Yeah, with the traffic and gas prices, it's too much. And good luck finding a parking spot.

    Meter maids have been going bananas recently. My dad's friend was ticketed for pulling out of the gas station in the process of buckling up and the cop wrote him up for not wearing a seat belt.

    NYPD? We have a corrupt department, but not that corrupt. Was it Nassau or Suffolk cops?

    NYPD. And my mom just got a ticket this past weekend in Nassau. I don't know the exact details though. I think she's gonna plead not guilty because she was fuming when she got back.
