Whats the stats is it 18x20?
Whats balance point?
Also where is RDS at?
rds is MIA
last night was the worst day of my life. took me 3 hours to go like 9 miles, and i had to ditch my car and walk home. witnessed like 5 accidents, almost in an accident myself like 10x. faukkkkkkkkkk thisssssssssss
Well, maybe this will make you feel better?
If you are going to make up stats at least make up decent ones.
I dont know how many times we need to remind you, but it is imperative that you locate that RDS
the rds has been found dude
so whos at work =/
(after staying up past 430 to watch AO)
realed! how was your trip? perfect timing huh
pics or it didn't happen...
well i am stuck at work. maybe next week
Got back in yesterday. Perfect timing indeed. Ordered ice melt over the weekend through Amazon Prime and they did not come through. Shipment delayed til Monday. Hopefully half a bag can get me through this weekend.
you and me both. i got 0 bags
I take that back. My bucket of ice melt just arrived. I'm ready.
well that makes one of us!
I fired my snowblower up on Wednesday and evrything checked out so Ill be good to go.
Never used Icemelt before.
Whats for lunch and where's the snow?
Snowblower sounds great but would be overkill for my townhome...plus the added storage issue.
Snow just started here.
I got a driveway about 100ft long and almost thre cars wide. I aint shovelin.
But Wuold nopt have one in a townhome for sure. Id just pay a neoghborrd kid 20 bucks or offer him a couple 40's olde E
Sounds like Krygios freaked out about someone listing to some music like Dats used to freak out when the Air Handler would kick on at Skyline
Snow started here in Richmond ~10:30am. Only about 2-3 inches so far.
who wants to hit?
sure, why not?
I was supposed to play in a doubles tournament down there this weekend (ACAC in Midlothian). Kinda bummed they cancelled it, but I understand why. Even so, I was willing to drive down from NoVa to play if they held it, although I'm guessing the McBail rate would have been real high...
Supposed to be high of 50 here tomorrow with 25 MPH winds. Winter stinks!
Flip those numbers around, and that's our forecast tomorrow...seriously...
I know, I have a sick pleasure of watching others being snowed in on the Weather Channel.
i hate the long cold winters... but the occasionally blizzard spices things up nicely. watch The Shining. Drink heavily. Get some serious shoveling exercise, watch Sapient backhand video, watch McLovin backhand video, ask for the freekin RDS001MP photos for the 100th time, yell at your kids a few times, eat a entire bag of cool ranch doritos. ya know... just the normal stuff
Has anyone checked in on the Cleveland Chapter lately?
dude did anyone see the post match interview with wawrinka vs rosol match???? GOAT interview!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did - live - including the "word"... You going to start smoking cigars now? Shortage of hotdogs and shampoo? Where is the yonex?
video or it didn't happen.
holy f.. snow.. i'm dumbass for booking a ski trip to cali next week.
Saw that. Was it a Member/Guest? ACAC has a ton of great players, both men and women.
As for us, I'm on the northside of town...at Saturday @ 7pm, I have ~18" inches on my deck (no wind/drift). And it's STILL snowing.
Hope ya'll aren't similarly getting pounded up in DC. We're small fry down here, don't think school will happen for a week or so. No worries for me/us. I'm still that Stay-at-Home Mommy.
No, it was a USTA tournament. Good draw for the men's open (16 teams entered), and I knew a few of the players.
As far as the snow...I'm in the western section of NoVa, and we're getting pounded. Damn close to 3ft, and its still snowing. No doubt my daughter won't be going to school until Thursday at the earliest, most likely they'll have the week off. Maybe I'll take a vacation day & hit the slopes w/ her.
Out here in Funchester id say we're close to 3 feet.
But the australian open and adult beverages warm the cockels.
got at least 30in in the rockville area. had some folks going around to looking to shovel the driveway for a Benjamin. i think i should of taken the offer. took them only 15 minutes for my neighbors. i am out there for at least 4 hrs now.
Back hurts...and now something is leaking in my kitchen..haha nice
So strung my own racquet for the first time. Screwed up the first and last cross. Do I just play it or cut it out?
Define 'screwed up'. Did you mis-weave? Or did you use the wrong holes?
If the former, then go ahead & play w/ it. First & last crosses shouldn't really affect playability, and its not as if someone is going to call you on an illegal string job.
If the latter, cut it out. You don't want to risk ruining the grommets, or worse, ruining the frame.
Just a mis-weave. Feel like an idiot looking at my error though lol. Knots look good though.
just play with it, it won't make much of a difference...if you mess up the frame, just get more of them! problem solved...
what's for lunch people? mclovin, you out of your house yet?
I got 5 of them, but would like to get my hands on a DR98...just because.
i think the DR98 is similar to the AI98...i thought the ai100 was better than dr100...so i stuck with the ai100...
break them all...get new frames...
Snowblowed about 2 hrs saturday night. Manly the end of the driveway so I wouldnt have a 5 foot pile to clear out. Took me about another 5 hours Sunday to clear it all out. Even blowing out Satuday night in some spots I still had to knock the snow with a shovel becuase it was up over my blower. Had some snow drifts well over 4feet. mainly right in front of breezeway door and garage. Next time I am going to try to put up a piece of plywood in hopes of blocking the wind from swirling and dumping everyhting right in front of my breezeway door. Which is my main entrance.
Had Jeep almost get stuck outside my house. After about 45 minutes of back and forth they finally turned around and left.
Then a big Dodge pickup came and was doing the same thing except that guy did get stuck. I went out to try to help him a little but he had the back tired buried off the side of the road. I thought the back of truck was piled with snow giving him enough weight then he flipped the tailgate and reached and pulled out the littlest snowblower I have ever see in my life. I wanted to ask the guy WTF are doing with that tiny thing in 3 feet of snow. And second Why TF did you not have weight in the back of a 4 wheel drive pickup truck. And second WTF are you doing trying to drive in this crap?
Turned out he lived in the neghborhood sorta right behind me. Have no idea where he was going. But he wasn't going to be able to shovel anyone out with that cinchy freakin blower.
Local farmer came over Sunday with a skid loader and pulled him out. Sounds like he jacked his power steering though.
Dang it... i need a gofundme account for racquets.
my forehand is about as good as its gonna get with APD.
backhand is serviceable... no problems.
volleys feel gross but i can usually just deaden the ball or crush it.. but i dont enjoy it.
serves were ok with 18g poly (but not able to hit out on FH as much) string but with RPM 16 or BBO i was trying real hard but hit the net so much more and had way less aces than usual.
in the last minute of play i switch back to Blade and my FH is all over the place but i immediately smack 2 aces down the T like nothin.
I need even balance on FH and 7PTS HL on serve. WUT DO I DO?
maybe I just need a more lively 16g poly, string lower, or a hybrid?
I need the APD and Blade to make babies.... DR98? dunno.... DAAAAAAAANGGGIT!
racquetfinder here i come!
Anybody want 2 APD 9.9/10 and a 12 pack Pure Aero Bag? sigh.
the wife is gonna be sooo pizzed. I guess I have the winter to figure it out.
meanwhile... some old dude (at least 4.5 though) was playing like Federer with an O3 white with NXT at 60lbs. I just want a racquet string combo that works for me. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR????? CMON ZAPVOR! make an APP that tells you what equipment is right for your game... $$$$$
what machine do you have
just do like me and demo a different frame every time you hit.
