    Someone has to pick up the slack around here so give it a shot. I intend to document the adventures, and most likely misadventures, of Jolly, Dennis, the Immortal, and Pickle on our "spring break" trip to Miami this weekend to see some of the Sony Ericsson.

    Just finished packing, will need to buy sunblock down there because all the stuff I have is either empty or expired. Plight of the light skinned brother. Hopefully I've brought enough clothes for tennis because I would like to hit as much as possible.

    I bring you the Pickle spring collection:

    So far I have exchanged info with Powerplayer and D I believe has set something with TomT for Friday. If anybody else is around shoot me an email, it goes straight to my phone. Maybe we'll bump into Drakulie at the tournament. Sup is from so fla or mid atlantic?

    The other guys all have fancy cameras and hi speed stuff but all I have is my iPhone so that will have to do. Maybe I can post up some videos and pics of matches.

    Wimps. you can get your clothes at Walmart, bring what you need to survive and make it to one of your pre-positioned bunkers if the zoombie appocalypse occured during our flight.

    We touch down, or parachute out of the airplane and ready to rock on roll it back to Camp Alpha Charlie 4 where we will retake the planet.

    it's snowing.

    i'm ready to leave forever.

    ps didn't know the forum has a min 30 seconds between posts requirement.

    probably a good idea to limit excessive GPOATing.

    We were eating dinner at lounge near terminal and I looked at my watch said "hey doesn't our plane leave in 5 mins?" I've never seen Dennis move so fast. Like a semi going uphill.

    As we get to the get, I get text alert that the plan is delayed 40 mins. Lol.

    Played at hardy park. Grittiest courts I've ever played on. Like hard sandpaper. Local said the courts haven't been resurfaced in 10 years. Lol.

    Heading to GHOAT now.

    Met up with TomT at a park this morning to hit. Dennis and TomT traded slices. Nice meet other poasters in real life. The golden children of the basalt kingdom. Thanks TomT, we had a blast.

    Grounds pass was $75 on Saturday. A stadium pass was $71. How does that make any sense.

    Anyway, stadium was sold out so we bough gp's. Went to check out stadium and of course nobody was checking the upper level so we got right in.

    Went to use the restroom before berdych match started and when I came back they were an usher was actually doing his job. Usher block.
