    He was recommended by a guy who had both of his knees done. Most of the Restonites go to him.

    muahahahaaha. okay somebody take me to see the dark knight. i gotta see this movie. somebody also sneak me in afterwards to see hellboy 2. and then get me liquored up and then shoot me a couple times and then take my dead lifeless body to see mama mia.

    Haha... I think that's because they were hitting some of those little pebbles on the court. I was aiming for those pebbles of course.

    Sappy - Me want black Vapor Vs, they only have white. Those red Cage IIs kinda look cool though.

    Hey man!!! I've been good. I haven't mentioned winning "that event" in over 2weeks.

    True story - after watching Lord of the Rings, with my wife and sister-in-law, I was immediately dragged to see "Maid in America." Tried to make a noose out of twizlers to put me out of my misery, but they wouldn't stay tied together.

    Yeah, I feel your pain...

    The week before my wife left she made me see:
    27 Dresses
    Fools Gold
    Wall-E (okay, that one was kinda cool)
    Dirty Dancing (for the 1000th time)
    Some movie, with Katharine Zeta Jones and she was a chef :confused:

    i know, i know. just messing JRstreaker.

    oh god the little woman said she wanted to go see Mama Mia. i was like, "i'll stay home and watch the baby. you should go take your girlfriends or your gay friends or Sapient007." i just realized that was kinda rendundant.

    JRK - you should learn a kick because you're taller than the average bear. my kick from my average bear height makes it just sorta kicky. from your height you could probably have your serve bouncing over the fence or maybe Xisbum and 4 of his friends from the lollipop guild standing on top of each other.

    hahaha. good fun. stupid sup used up all my weekly tennis points. i need to hit. somebody come up to MD and hit with me.

    Good lord! I feel sorry for you JRK.

    Xisbum - we are looking for member for our combo team. You in???
    I also have a third person for dubs friday. We can meet up at Shadowood.

    BTW- anyone having problems with Yahoo e-mail?? It's been sucking lately. The search function is busted.

    What's the deal w/ Yahoo Australia??
     
  15. auzzie, you coming out today?
    i need to sweat out some Evan Williams...
    what time is the hit?

    sorry, i've been drunk since Tuesday... and not keeping up.

    i could use some kick serve pointers... and some new video
    to see if i've stopped doing my "limp-wristed throwing style"
    during my wind-up. (extra points if you know the movie quote)

    (i served amazingly well last weekend.. only 1 DF and lots of ACES... and the whole time I was really just trying to spin them in. but since i was so relaxed the ball was finding the corners and hitting all of the lines... just like I did to Hollywood "even though he likes to call them out and Skunk, JR, and others all see it hit the line" WOOOO)

    my kick serve now at least goes in the box but sits up like a meatball waiting to be crushed. but my rotator cuff is all jacked up so I probably am not following through out of fear of further injury.
    so if your kick serve doesn't kick i guess it isn't a kick serve. :oops:

    Thinking out about it. Thought we were meeting at Glade? Shadowood is fine, though. Do we need a fourth?

    My bad, I meant Shadowood earlier. Got my locations mixed up.

    So far we do need a fourth. I have a e-mail out to one of my Reston Tennis peeps. If you know someone else, let me know.

    xisbum -- hahahaaha. oh man it's on. we gotta play soon. i'm gonna beat you so bad you'll think you're back in the civil war. i suggest you go union.

    also when are we playing doubles? i betcha we'd drive some teams crazy. although i just had a thought. you should play doubles sometime with Schmad. you figure you hit with slice and dice and wicked amounts of spin. and Schmad hits with wicked amounts of non-spin. your opponents wouldn't know what hit em!!

    EVERYONE:

    During these summer months, Skyline Sport and Health is holding drill sessions, 7-9pm, every week night. You may 'drop in', pay for the whole week...whatever. Cost is $40 for 2 hours. Not sure if there is a separate member or non-member fee, but I can check.

    Also, they have them every week night *except* next week, when they will be holding the men's Open tournament.

    If anyone has any questions, let me know. I would imagine I may pop into a few of these myself.

    WTH? Where did my post go?

    Jeesh.

    I've been 'moderated'.

    Was it Xisbum's tie-dye shirt? I bet it was. Or I let out the secret of Restonites = Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

    Mine eyes have seen the glory...

    Still got my dress blues, dude. Still a little dusty from Gettysburg, but not too bad. Lost my other uniform, from the War of 1812, though. I remember Old Hickory well, and Jean Lafitte taught me all I know about Pirate Tennis. Showed me around the French Quarter, too.

    Don't know about the dubs; one of our lady friends has been conspiculously quiet about our little challenge. The Sphinx lady writes more words than Stephen King on such deep topics as stinky tennis clothes, crying jags, firing teammates, etc., but she can't say one little "Yes" or "No" to our challenge? Lady Topaz, you gotta have a talk with that girl. :???:

    Hey man, I'm not Cindy's keeper! She's not a child, and I'm not her mom.

    I don't think she keeps up on this thread...try the 'adventures' thread?

    i wouldn't mind demoing them for a bit next time i see you at our meets. i've hit with them before but that was when i was younger and more studly. i thought they had too much pop back then. but now . . . i think i might need the help.

    xisbum -- aye. i have noticed the ladies haven't been too eager to play us. it's too bad because it would be great practice for them. they have nothing to lose. we are the ones with all the pressure. i can scarcely sleep at night. :twisted:

    I believe that's where we posted our original challenge. And I thought you two were a team. Was I misinformed? Isn't the full name of that thread The Adventures of Cindy and Topaz? :?

    Ooops. Left out the "Amazing"...

    To those going to the meet tonight.

    Does anyone have a sledge hammer or chainsaw I can borrow. I promise to return it Saturday.

    Thanks

  35. sup, bring the reel of duralast or just the racquet?

    the APDwC strung w/ Duralast has unfortunately lost tension.
    it is probably at about 40lbs now!

    but i'll bring them.

    Well, not a doubles team. She's up in Moco, we were on opposing teams in DC. I've only met her that one time at Hains Point.

    She had a pretty serious injury...she ruptured her plantar fasciitis. I think she is just getting back into playing again...that's why she's been kind of quiet. Oh, and she's been traveling a lot colleges with her young-in, who is getting ready to leave the nest I believe.

    That's fine; why don't you get Skunk as a partner for a practice match? We'll take you on, right TFM? :)

    I hope this project with either chainsaw or sledge hammer does not involve your tennis gear or Zap. :shock:

    *crickets chirping*

    hmmm ms. skunky is a bit further up on the tennis totem pole. plus she was at one time referred to as The Prodigy. skunky + topaz = toe funk? they might be a fairly even match up.

    okay i'm in! i want prizes and wagers. Skunk you in? Topaz you in?

    i think it's weird because a mod did something about that troll mark vessels. fortunately he seems to have been banned. hopefully his IP has been logged and he doesn't return.

    too bad too because his postings had some incredible insight.

    One of my posts got erased though, and I'm pretty sure I wasn't spamming.

    As for partnering with Skunk, yes, I would love to if she is up for it.

    And yes, she is further up on the tennis totem pole. I didn't play tennis as a junior. I had no formal instruction until four years ago, and even some of that did more harm than good. I do the best I can...and I'm just going to get better. So get your pot shots in now, boys...while you can.

    See the Wakefield folk in a bit...

    no potshots taupe pazz. i think you and the skunk vs me and the bum is fairly even matchup. i think we are both older than you ladies. combined we are probably 252 years old. i'm also fairly sure that the skunk is taller than i am and that toe pez is taller than the 10sbum. this oughta be good.

    i'll wait til the skunk declares she's up for the challenge. but i definitely want wagers and prizes.

    How many of you do your own stringing? I know Sup, Hollywood and JJJosh do.
