    Mikeler must of caught the "mcbail" syndrome TWMAC has.. and passed it to members of this chapter.

    mcbail= to cancel plans at the last moment.

    Obviously don't tell him I told you this, but he told me he sometimes puts used penn balls in dryer and then uses them as "new" balls when it's his turn for balls.

    Not sure I get it. If your implying you win ugly. OK, I agree. And make no mistake about it. Winning is everything. Hope it snows on you.

    Mikeler, I'm not sure I like gators attitude, so I'm going to make an executive decision and award you a COBE win for ur last match with him. Ur 6-0 4-2 lead qualifies as a 5 inning rain out win.

    I think gator knows. He plays frequently with the inspiration for COBE.

    You stay out of this Wicked. It me against Mikelers pansy *** drop shots and no pace slices.

    I was in Mkeler's little part of the world for dinner last night. We had dinner at one of the restaurants along his "strip". I believe his place was casting a long shadow down on us little people. Sitting two tables over was Brian Hill, former Magic coach.

    Did you see where Sharapova came back from a 1 st set bagel? She credited her coach who was court side, not out of town. :)

    The owner of that company posts as BigT here on the message boards. I've tried a few of the Pro's Pro strings. They seem to be knockoffs of better known strings. I'm not sure if they are exact copies or perhaps string that does not meet QC standards for the other companies. Worth a shot for a young guy on a budget.

    This happened to me recently. Good thing we got rained out before the match was over. Does not count - not completed match.

    That would have no effect on my 3.5 game. It can't get any worse.. well maybe 3.0.

    Gator, you misunderstand. Sharapova actually came back and Won. I think, if I recall, you played a 10 game pro-set, which mikeler won 10-2. Lol jk.

    I came home yesterday afternoon and it had not rained at my house. Went out at 6:30 and hit for 1 1/2 hrs.

    Playing tomorrow morning just to beat the rain.

    20% chance of rain this afternoon. Maybe I'll have a shot today.

    My car thermometer said 96 when I got to the courts last night. It "cooled off" to 90 when I got home.

    I played 2 sets of singles. The 2nd set was pretty low quality stuff.

    So the first set was another victory for Milosh (seinfeld reference).

    When I was playing yesterday at about 10, the guy next to me on court 7 had one of those plastic thermometers sitting on the plastic racks on the court post and it was reading 130. LOL. I know it is hot but not 130. He was telling everybody how hot it was. I think at 130 we are dead.

    They used to have a thermometer on the top level at OTC that would register 130 or 140 sometimes and it would not even be in the summer. Har Tru is definitely cooler to play on than hard courts too.

    I did hard courts last night. Total sweat bath. First one of the year for me where my shoes are wet and everything.

    The weird thing was that it felt great outside for the most part. It was a really nice night. (i played at 730)

    I also now have the opposite problem on balance. Was leaning into my backhands and placing well. Falling backwards on many forehands..ugh.

    I think hitting 40 has caused one positive thing. I don't sweat as much as a few years ago.

    I'm still glowing from my hard fought victory last night against Wicked Forehand. It was a close hard fought battle, but I eventually pulled it out 3-3, 30-15 before lightning forced the instantaneous match decision which I clearly won. I did the Tsonga dance at the end of the match as my opponent left in tears.

    Not so sure I agree with ur recollection Macular. All I know is there was a flash of light, which we weren't sure if it was lightning or the lights flickering. Next thing I know, ur hauling *** out of the parking lot. I tried to wave you down to see where u were going, you just waved and burned rubber. :)

    That was funny when they turned the lights on outside and you ducked under the table afterwards. Epic.

    There is a reason I typically don't check my phone during a match. She was putting all kinds of bad voodoo on us playing.

    The geography of where I work, play tennis and live does not favor this approach. Plus, I burned water last time I tried to cook. The issue last night actually was about dinner, she thought I'd get rained out and come straight home to take her out.

    Nah, I'm hopeless at cooking Mr. B. The 1,000% humidity this morning was brutal.
