    Friend of mine, 43, sent this to me. He played the number one guy in his club the other day and here is his poetic play by play:

    so you want to know
    how well I did
    did I tell you I was playin'
    a 24 year old kid?

    my knees were a creakin'
    my shoulder was a mess
    at 42 I'm not as quick
    as youngsters, I confess

    So I had to use
    my head and my heart
    my racquet my sword
    my serves were like darts

    i made the kid run
    back and forth, side to side
    after about an hour
    I think he was trying to hide

    and with one last breath
    and a swing of my stick
    it was all over
    he was dead quick

    So I pumped my chest
    and walked away glad
    untili I heard him mutter
    "I just got beat by my grandad!"


    Thought you guys would enjoy this

    That's great!

    There's a 19 year old right below me on our Town Ladder. It drives him CRAZY that he cannot beat me ... and it nearly KILLS ME to beat him. He's playing for a good college team now ... which is part of the reason I've been in the gym so much this winter.

    We may be a step or two slower; but we're a whole lot more crafty/cunning/treacherous...!
