    There is a meow and there is a meow. Some meows are better left un-meowed. Anyway, this thread has as much life left as a Walking Dead zombie shot in the head, thrice. Cindy, time for a new thread! And when that happens: jc40, can I please reply in your stead? I know exactly what you are going to say :)

    No, no you're not anti-Cindy. No, not at all. Not one bit. Nope. Uh-uh.

    Your idea of "keeping things real" is coming up with absurd possibilities that have no connection to real life?

    I said they "may have". I did NOT say that it was definitely the case.

    There's nothing absurd about it unless YOU can definitely say what the other people were thinking.

    But I shouldn't be surprised at your attitude given how you wrote in another post that you would mock your own playing partner for his attire.

    Hell yes I will make fun of a teammate for wearing long pants on a 95 degree day. (We actually do have a guy on the team who does this because he doesn't think he looks good in shorts) And I will be shouting "suns out, guns out!" if they are wearing a sleeveless shirt. This is just part of the team dynamic we have and people are still going to go out afterwards for drinks to laugh about it all.

    I would also make fun of someone who called a person to play pickup tennis all the while HOPING that they would say no. But since I don't think that anyone would actually do something so absurd I haven't had the opportunity to do so.

    OK, so your first case of making fun of a teammate is all in good-natured fun. I think so long as your teammates are cool with it, then it's all good.

    In the second case, even though I agree that someone who called a person to play tennis all the while hoping that they would say no is in poor taste, I would NOT make fun of them for doing so.

    But that's just me. I believe in treating others the way I'd want to be treated and do my best to live my life accordingly. I think it's just one of those things that comes easier when I got older and turned 40.

    I'm admittedly "old school" about things like that.

    I have a friend who always wears long pants and a long sleeve sweatshirt, even if it's 100 degrees in summer. He needs to limit the amount of skin exposed to the sun due to a medical condition - so not something it would be cool to make fun of.

    And as it relates to the OP, you can't really know why an opponent is wearing warm-ups or whatever, so no reason to take insult or issue with that.
