    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?

    Here I am!

    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.

    That's interesting...I don't know anyone in MOCO except for Cindy.

    *eyebrow*

    Tenski, do we get some hints on you, or no?

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