    I was just about to ask if it was at least a dry heat. We can rule that out, I guess.
    wait, what am I talkin' about? I'm in Toronto!

    omg tn, I know two people from my clinic who are doing it
    Michael goldsman (first name is spelt different) and a girl isabela. Good luck, I guess you are really good to be in it. I heard them talking about it today during camp, trying to find out their start times and stuff.

    Edit: Are you Gangji Rahaman? Oh yeah, how do you find those draws? I would like to also see the girls one.

    Check out the Al Gore movie "An Inconvenient Truth" and expect much warmer temperatures in Canada in the future. As for where I live (Naples, Florida), it will be underwater, which will be a very good thing for the collective intelligence of the USA and for voting purposes as well.

    [​IMG]Thanks for bringing this up DJ Edwards. I haven't seen the film yet but I hope it gets the attention it deserves(which it won't, because we'll see it, but we won't acknowledge it like we should. It won't get through our thick skulls. And Bush knows that! I think he's a genius, acting like a dumbass so he can get the dumbass vote).

    Hey Tennis nerd, how did the tourny go? Did you see the girl who goes to my camp, izabella? And also, today I had a hitting lesson with a guy who was in the tournament. He said he won his first 2 rounds, then lost the third. His name was kimi, he had such smooth strokes.

    ?

    And Tennisnerd, she is tall and blond. And often after losing a point she will yell at herself. But most tennis players do that anyways. And the other guy I was talking about wasnt doing this tournament, but Nationals. The guy I had a hitting lesson with today who was in the tournament, I guess his name isnt kimi, but his nickname. Maybe you saw him, he is pretty tall, brown, pretty skinny I guess, one handed backhand, babolat pure drive.
