suggest getting over there this Sat...in time to see surf.
I think I'll take my 2 year old in the water this weekend. NOT!
think conditions will be quite nice with dropping swell and wind.
Anyone want to play tomorrow morning ?
Thanks you so much BC. If i ever buy one I think I will do a custom for my crazy weight. BUT!!one of the many reason I called it quit was cause my story of low back problems. I use to come with so much pain from surfing in the last times(thanks tennis for coming back to my life).
Next time we see each other we talk about surf life. Enjoy the swell, hopefully at one point winds turn offshore for you with head high waves.
Has anyone gone to Prime or Premium outlet Nike factory stores lately? any tennis stuff there?
If you are looking for treasure, the clearance is where its at!!
Wins left and right and 3 times cheaper.....
I love diving too. Used to go with my dad all the time and we saw several hammerheads. Have not been in a few years. Last time I went diving I got the bends in a cavity and those were 3 horrible hours. I can only imagine what true bends feels like ...
Well I know BC and Bob spent some time in the armed forces so I assume they may like guns .
This guy on youtube is pretty cool. Every week he has a video:
This is my favorite! One badass mofo!
PS it reminds me of my game: I don't carry much ammo but when I hit, I hit hard lol
I swear to god, I hope one day become a senator to create a law prohibiting nerds from bear arms. That's why we see those mother fuukers shooting innocent people in school.
We the People of the United States, do not like it! It is my right* to bare arms and drive V8!

But if we didn't have these shooters, we wouldn't get these fab songs like:
Here's the lyrics:
The song is based on:
Nice, I tried the racquet already but I did not like it that much, too stiff for me.
I've heard from many that a Babalot is all that's needed!!!
To me, your serves are like this:
Had a not so fun match last night. Was up 5-1 in the 1st set with a set point on my serve, lost 7-6. Was up 4-1 with a game point on my serve, lost 6-4. I had to call an ambulance for that choke.
that dude has some connections to say the least.
btw - was in Bass Pro Shop for the 1st time and WOW...like a kid in a candy store.
You dont get around much!
That is BAAD. In a tournament in Pompano. In the semi's - I was up 5-1 and lost the set 7-5 and lost the second 6-3. I really questioned why I played tournaments and put myself through such mental anguish. But you win some and you lose some. I was down 10-4 to Dohn in the 3rd set tie breaker and won - so I got that going.
Who did you play?
tennis today ... let me know .
Also gator if you have any free time next week im going to be in windermere from monday --> Thurs
try to control my spending or at least rationalize. got enough toys but the long barrels are appealing to the ex-military red neck side of me.
Cool. I've got matches lined up Mon, Tues and Wed. Lets plan on my courts for Thurs at 5:30. I will also let you know if something happens to one of those earlier matches. Like maybe Mikeler has a bad shoulder, a sore ankle, a bad elbow, or his wife wont let him play.
Your USTA captain.
Some or all of the above are always possible. If it works out better for you to play Mr. Fish on Wednesday, I can always switch to Thursday.
He was just playing games with you. He always has said he can beat you when ever he wants
Wed is good
The majority of my wardrobe comes from the Nike 192 outlet. I have been shopping there for years. It used to be even more amazing. Once I got a women's Barca jersey made in EU, not China for 19.99, which you can never find over here. Now more tourists know about it. When my family comes over, they go crazy. You have to catch it on the right day though. I have been out there and found nothing, and I've been out there and brought home a big bag of gear. I ran into a guy who coaches locally out there once buying bags of stuff, looked like for a certain pro shop or the bay.
I will bring my wife there this weekend to see wats wat
wait-r u guys talking about the outlet on I drive next to ten plz? been there already...
nvrmind-I found it-I'll check it out this weekend
The best time to buy there Bridget is on Saturday early in the morning..around 9-10. We have a beef with one middle eastern buyer that come every other day and CLEAN the store. They always look for the tennis products.
Last time we saw them they bought about $5,000+ easily in products.
By the way, happy their is a Barca fan here...
I've got permission for Wednesday! Woohoo!
We could be talking about the same guy, how funny is that. Thanks for the Sat AM tip.
I have always liked Barca, but they are so good now with Messi in top form. I wish Jose M was their manager though I dont have anything against Pep. Jose is going out of his mind trying to beat them. Manchester City is starting to look similar form with Kun Aguero. Argentina has some of the best players right now with Tevez, Aguero and Messi.
So you are quiet a fan eh?? Yeah Messi is amazing, I just want him to do all those goals he do with Barca, but with the Argentinian jersey!! We did have this conversation with Tebow(his from Brasil) about how much talent from Argentina and Brasil lately, but so hard to make them work together when they play for their national team.
Wish Man City does a good season, with Kun, Tevez and Silva we will see nice goals for sure.
All this soccer talk is making me sleepy.
Its fine, its sunday..go ahead and take a nap...I know I will.
I took your suggestion. After 2.75 hours of singles this morning, I needed it!
Playing that Coyfish guy tomorrow at Blanchard around 11ish (if all the courts are not taken). A hard court in the heat of the day, so not my usual home court advantages.
Because I'm your friend and I know Kevin's game, I'll give you THE tips. Never go for his backhand. Always go for his forehand, specially go for those shallow balls because he never puts them away.;-)
Take it easy on him. I have him on Thur on my hard courts.
I was watching a little of the Open coverage on The Tennis Channel. I just cant stand listening to Martin Navratilova. Any one else feel the same?
I smell a setup here. Reminds me when I used to play the local Jeff Davis league. I played this one guy and was trying to do some scouting on the league leader. He told me they played tennis in college together and NOT to hit it to this guy's backhand. So I played the guy and fed him mostly forehands the 1st set and got bageled. Once I started going more to his backhand the next set was a tight battle that I still ended up losing.
He's young, he'll be ready for you. Not a big fan of Navratilova. Sometimes Johnny Mac annoys me too but other times I enjoy listening to him.
I like Navratilova. Actually she is one of few female commentators I can listen. She knows tennis and says it as it is. Her voice does sound like Lurch's at times tho. MJF is very cute but not very knowledgeable. Davenport is good. (S)Pam Shriver is the worst. On the man's side, Johnny Mc and Brad Gilbert are my favs by far! Cliff Draysdale just initiates 'mute' button on my remote control. That man should stick with his desperate housewives of Miami. Mats Wilander is another terrible commentator.
I really like when Brad Gilbert and Darren Cahill broadcast together. Both of those guys have such a deep understanding of all the details involved with the game.
Dont like Shriver, Curillo. Gilbert and Cahill are good. I like Pat M, - John M can be ok. I also like the two british guys - dont know the names.
the 2 british guys are amazing. Probably my favorites.
Yeah, Pat M. is pretty good. Are you talking about the two British guys on Tennis Channel? They always call the player by their nationality. "...And the Spaniard takes the first set".
Michael J. Fox??
