    Getting increasingly difficult to find one of those short shorts these days.

    And somebody stole my frame braces.

    Spaghetti strings were banned, and half of the forum's string sellers went outta business ;)

    Just the other day, a few of us were reminiscing in another thread about old TT members gone by and I said, "I'll never forget what's-his-name.", and now look who comes back. :)

    There has been a lot of talk lately about how difficult it is for an ATP pro to win seven tournament matches in a row and that we may be close to witnessing a Slam event that no one wins. Other than that, it's been pretty quiet.

    ThAnkS foR The upDaTe GuYS...my bout with backpain and scoliosis kept me away from tennis...it didn't help me that I have to string racquets for healthy Guests...I am just starting to get back again...maybe I will end up playing M0n0p0lY instead. Y0u GuYs can always be depended on for a laugh or two. Despite the mayhem, this has always been a good place to share information. Just have to separate the chaff from the wheat. While I AM aWaY, I DeVel0peD a new WaY of TYpinG...lol....^

    Wait a minute, prior to (Connors and John Lloyd and Burt Reynolds and Andy Mill and Greg Norman and the Manhattan White Pages) 'Chrissssie' only made love twice:

    once to the basketball team and once to the football team.


    LOL.
