    Megacedu is alive and well. Went to college, graduated from college, got a job and a dog and a house. Thanks for asking!

    I'm still around the interwebs. Get with the facebook program! I've done a couple of teedub meetups recently! I haven't forgotten any of you!

    Sorry to disappoint you, brah, nude pictures of me don't/never did exist and so no. Now, if you're referring to fully clothed pictures of me stolen from my defunct photobucket account, then you're accurate.

    Ha! Yes, this is what happened, strapless bikini top, someone blurred from the chest down making it look like I wasn't wearing clothes. Hahahaha. Good times. Someone actually fell for it?!

    I am doing good :) And I never left... still here...see?

    Fact. He had a following of posers who kissed his arse so as to not be the subject of his abuse. I never sold out...

    Was deuce a moderator or something?

    He's getting a lot of hate here. Maybe because I wasn't here when that user was around.

    hi max, actually 'Dedans' preceeded the good Senator and once the Senator came on board.....pssst, don't tell the mods this....they've both run concurrently on the board. As a matter of fact I believe the never-indicted, never-requited trusted pubic servant Bullworth felt he lost touch with "the people" when the board became Fed/Nadal fanboy heavy. That they didn't "get it" any more. Would you rate that as an accurate assessment Senator? .... Senator? .....

    ps good to see you're doing well meghan : )

    Okay, I just read some of the posts on here and I guess he was trolling on some of other females on here. Maybe because he was fixated on them or something? He sounds worse than a typical Fed or Nadal troll. :oops:

    hi Dedans, this collection below contains a portion of my 'raps' here at Talk Tennis; raps that celebrated 'flashing' women, raps that spoke glowingly of porn starlette idols, raps that served as love paens dedicated to sheep, as well as drunken Santa Claus poetry, etc.).

    Now seriously, do you think some 16-year-old fed/nadal obsessed Johnny Fanboy would "get" this? vvvv nah...

    Hmm... That's pretty frightening.

    Well, most of the trolls are in the Pro Player section. So as long as you don't go there, you'll be fine. :)

    Apparently we just need to utter a member's name three times and they reappear in this thread. Careful who you wish for people...

    Was heycal the guy that no matter what the qustion or topic was it always had something to do with how the white man is still keeping the black man down?

    And was EC the guy that was from Chicago (apparently) that we were trying to get to fight Rickson in Ohio somehwere? Or was that a different guy? I cant remeber. I nkow the guy that was suppsoed to fight Rickson dissapeard and showed up with a new username but same Avatar and said he was england or something.

    The more I think about it I dont think that was EC.

    Just remebered I think that guy was Ignorant Genious. I think Rickson would have pounded him.

    Even though I never met either one

    I think Teyko was the sharpton disciple

    No, heycal was the 50 year old guy who wore skinny jeans.

    not sure who that is, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't EC.

    How could I forget Teyko?! HE was the prime force behind the destruction of Rants & Raves. :twisted:

    I thought you where everyones favorite? You already got a request for new pics.

    I lost my aol when i reformatted my comp but we should talk if you use skype or yahoo let me know because facebook just weirds me out.

    He also wondered if people could never win a tournament and if Sharapova is the hottest woman on the planet. He also did some other creepy stuff but ill leave that alone and save DD the hassle.

    The word "assuming" when used as a verb best describes your post.

    And as an adjective best describes you.

    I was actually just thinking the other day about how little the forums seem to have changed over the years. I've been lurking and posting sporatically since the old forums (2001-2002?), and it seems like the same topics are discussed over and over again, albeit often by newer posters. The biggest changes I've seen appear to come from the Strings forum. I was also disappointed with the loss of the "Rants and Raves" and "Junior Tennis" subforums. I bet most of the posters (that haven't already reappeared in this thread) that people think have left are still lurking from time to time.

    My favorite poster was probably Coaching Mastery. Read his book and really enjoyed his style. I always thought he provided great advice.

    The same strokes are hit over and over again by newer pros, but no one finds it surprising.

    It is just like that. The issues are the same.

    Yup that's pretty much where I was going. The game hasn't really changed, so the topics are basically the same. I still enjoy reading though. I think my favorite subforum these days is the "Adult League" section. I always like to read about tournament and league match experiences.

    the good ol' days

    I think with heycal it was the reverse, given his political leanings. With him, it was always how the black man was still keeping the white man down.

    No nostalgia for TM? He spiced up these boards a few years back until he flamed out. Somebody said he's coming back around Christmas time.

    Depends on how well people have aged. Like, I am growing younger and playing better tennis with every new day. If that is the case with her, yeah, pics would be great.

    The megacedu in my wants to oblige, the exhausted 24 year old yuppy isn't clever enough for the inevitable trolling. Maybe after a couple of St. Germaine cocktails this evening.

    Who can name all of TennisMaverick's other usernames in chronological order?

    Sentinel, you seem to be an avid movie viewer. Do you find Terrence Malick movies more enjoyable than, say, cleaning up after your dog?
