    Does anyone play at greenspring in timonium? I hear johns hopkins is tearing it down for a new gastric bypass surgery center. 14 indoor courts bite the dust. I guess i can just get surgery and skip this exercise bs.

    On another note im pretty sold on my current frames but if i read this thread too much longer i'll get a healthy racquetaholism going.

    Really?!?! That was her designation within the Borg Collective. There were 9 of them on her ship, and she was the 7th, hence '7 of 9'.

    I don't know @zapvor ...my opinion of you is going down. Next you'll be asking who T'Pol is...

    And just in case you don't know...this is T'Pol:

    Although most heterosexual men (and probably many heterosexual women) prefer this version of her:

    Just image-Google 'Jolene Blalock'.

    The main thing I like about X1 is that it is not too powerful. Almost all of multis I have used are too powerful, then when you increase the tension they just don't feel right.
    Its really the only multi I have tried I feel comfortable using in a full bed. Seeing as I how I put the multi in the mains I havent found anything remotely close to X1. And I basically stopped trying to find something.

    But I also dont play anymore and am even fatter that I was before.

    ill never forget the time i strung a YY TI-70 mid 88" racquet with full X1 and proceed to blast 20+ aces in 2 sets.
    total Sampras out there. but the strings were shot after that 1 47minute match of pure brilliance.
    then i realized i couldn't hit FH or BH with that frame... but man could it serve!

    cmon Hollywood, i think i've seen a Crossfit gym right off rt40. get on in there and get fit.
    just don't go to the Panera. (too soon?)

    well, snooze u lose twmacers. 1 APD has sold on the bayyy. act quick for the 2 Blades, 1 APD, and 1 amazing 12 pack bag! 2 ISOTHERMAL RACQUET PROTECTION COMPARTEMENTS! T.W.O.!!!!!! OMG!

    That crossfit joint is where I used to take my car to the shop. They moved across the bridge in perryville so now I take my car to a mechanic that opened up in the old coke plant.

    I have never been in a panera bread. And its been a good 6 years since ive been close to that area of abingdon where those cops got shot. A couple dudes at work missed all the action by about 10 minutes

    Was the TI-70 that one Krajeck used? I went to the bird back in the day to buy one or two but they didnt have any. I bet that served bombs though.

    X-1 may not be the most durable but for me it is legit. It just expensive. When I hybrid them in the mains by the time the poly went dead and needed to be replaced was just about the time they finished sawing through the X-1 anyway.

    yah man, Krajicek bombs away stick. it was so good for serving. i think i could only go down the T back then and my opponent was a joker.. but danggit if i didn't hit it perfectly every time!

    all of a sudden i am really digging Kirschbaum Max Power 17 Rough as a cross string. Crazy firm but with a soft main it makes this awesome BOOM sound on impact and has a lot of power and spin. tension is crazy good too. of course i realize this when the dumb strings aren't on 2for1 sale any more. i gotta hit the bay or hope for TW happy hour or sumn.

    p.s. - DR98 best racquet ever created! mine forever! my PRECIOUS!

    @sapient007 , the ribs look better in the yelp pics. I hope you are finding the best places for 1. Ribs, 2. Burnt Ends, & 3. Brisket
    I think its gotta be fresh or else it might be disappointing. Although u seemed to be snackin on ribs like 5 days later so maybe I'm wrong)
    However, once you've found the best of each I suppose HW & I would each kick in a 6er of nattybo for ample portions!
    (or a Wilson blade98... Your choice!)

    It was revealed that six years earlier, Jeri had accused Jack Ryan of asking her to perform sexual acts with him in public,[32] and in sex clubs in New York, New Orleans, and Paris.[30][33] Ryan described one as "a bizarre club with cages, whips, and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling." Jack denied these allegations. Although Ryan only made a brief statement,[35] and she refused to comment on the matter during the campaign, the document disclosure led Jack to withdraw his candidacy;[36][37] his main opponent, Barack Obama, then won the 2004 United States Senate election in Illinois.[38]

    err mah gerd, i had a bad feeling about my *e*bay buyer
    (account created that day with zero feedback)
    so i emailed them before shipping APD out.
    guy said he wanted 2 racquets for that price.
    i told him maybe auction unclear.. so ill refund his money.
    he says he missed out on other auctions... (sure pal)
    he says im selling chinese made knockoffs. (wth)
    had to hang up on this whacko.
    he said he was calling ****.
    alrighty then. buhbye jakazz!
    so glad i didnt ship the APD out.. i woulda gotten so skrewed!

    she can have my 2 day pass to snowbird/alta if someone from that group can pull of my hot looks.

    my ski bum friends convinced me that i needed the pass this year and it has been the most wasted $$$ lift pass i've paid so far. :)

    Whats up dudes.

    I actually got out and hit this weekend.

    It had been over a year and it took a while for to get the rust off. But I was bashing some forehands pretty good and the backhand was pretty solid.
    Didn't have any TFights strung up so its was RDTi50 pretty exclusive as the Ti80 with the gut mains hurricane crosses is rocket blaster powerful and basically unusable for me. But I would feel terrible just cutting out VS gut without using it until it breaks.

    Played my third mixed doubles match this season and am 0-3. I feel like I am playing well personally but am not good enough to carry the team. Can't wait to play singles again...less drama too.
