    No they didn't make the small azz keyboard on my laptop big enough for wookie hands.

    BTW: I went down in a big flaming hairball in yesterday's dubs match... in case you didn't notice from Sup's post.


    Ugh!!!

    JRK,
    Your Ti.Rad OS in 4 5/8 grip on the bay has 2 hours left and the high bid is only... $15!!!

    A little bit. Felt a bit off.

    And I didn't see much of the ball as they picked on my partner bigtime. They even joked with me after the match - "sorry you didn't get to play much."

    But there's more than enough blame to go around - I also blew some easy put aways. It was that type of night......

    Are you allowed coaching in a usta league match? Between sets or something?

    I wasn't sure. I would of given you the Brad Gilbert to Agassi FO speech.

    BTW, what was the final score.

    That would be a big, fat, negatory Sup. NO coaching, talking, signals...nothing. There are captains who, if they even suspected such a thing, would rake you over the coals in a heartbeat.

    Even in the practice league.

    Auzzie's post was at 8:56AM and he said it ends in 2 hours. JRK's post was around 3PM.

    Whadayya think I'm some too-bit cheapo? I said win it and I'll give ya the dough becuase there was only 2 hours left. Not enough time for me to find Auzzie, give him money, Auzzie log in to the bay, and Auzzie win racket.

    Now it's gone and I'll never see it again... :cry:

    No worries though... I'm trying to see if one of the peeps on these boards will sell me his Ti Rads or trade them for something.
     
  20. i AM aware of how to check COMPLETED LISTINGS.. thx!

    Shoulda woulda, jrk... I think used ti.rad's are a dime a dozen on the bay anyway. There are some real interesting frames on the bay though...should I wait for my hps 6.1's to get here or have playmate-frames waiting for them upon arrival. I could get a smorgasboard of used cool frames!

    I didn't see it from earlier (2 days ago) either. Auzzie or you on some weird "bay" that we don't know about? Everytime I look for Ti Rads they are starting at $75 or so. Or they start at $50 with $25 dollars shipping fee. :confused:

    I got some playmates for my HPS 6.1's! 2x Fischer Pro Tour FT's! Somewhat similar in specs, just a little lighter, a little less stiff, and a little longer. Plus they are that nice Fischer bright yellow! GO E B A Y!

    This just in, local officials are asking metro DC residents to not breathe on Jan. 20, as you will be using precious oxygen needed by all of the out of town visitors. Can you all just hold your breath until for one day? Kthanx.

    ******

    Is it just me, or is the inauguration madness getting a bit ridiculous? Not drive on the beltway? I might just spend Tuesday in a bar in the airport. Anybody wanna join me? :)

    WTF!!! No beltway. Gotta linkTopaz?

    Sounds like a good time to raid the grocery stops and stock up like we do around here when we get 0.0000000001 inches of snow, stock up on some xbox 360 rentals and game for 48 hours straight...... ( withh the Azzie Open be on by then?) Stock up on TP now!

    BTW- the wookie is singed, but is growng some hair back. Won tonight at #1 in mixed dubs with JJ. 6-3,6-2. JJ put up an outstanding performance.

    WTOP has been reporting for two days now, that they are 'asking' residents to stay off the beltway. They are not closing it, but merely 'suggesting' that the residents of the area leave the beltway open for all the out-of-towners. 'Cause, you know, that sounds like a good idea. :roll:

    Good job on the win last night! Did we have enough players for all the courts? JJ was asking me to play, but you know...9pm matches on a school night...not so much.

    And Sappy, I think my liver is probably the healthiest in the chapter! No need for any paging!

    JRK, would you be content if you stuck with the Ti.Rad? or would you prefer to get new frames? If you want new frames, what exactly are the characteristics you are looking for?

    Just a slight edit... You've got the Pro Tour Extreme FT. I only know this because I used the Pro Tour FT back in '01 or '02 (can't remember). In the image below, what you bought is on the far left. The 'Pro Tour FT' is on the far right:

    [​IMG]

    Two things: (1) I would very much like to hit w/ the Pro Tour Extreme when you get them. I was always interested in that racket. And (2), I still have a couple of the red Pro Tour FTs if you want to give them a swing.

    In addition, I just noticed that they've been dropped to $119 at TW. Damn, at this rate they'll be paying me to take stock off their hands by the spring...

    I actually did buy the Pro Tour FT's. They made the first generation of them with the red, and then the second generation of them came with Fischer yellow where the red was. If I like them, I would probably be interested in testing out your red ones as well.

    What did you think about those frames? How do they compare to any of the other racquets you have played with? It appears I am coincidentally following your exact same racquet-career path. :)

    Yeah the MComp deal, I found checking the bay. I am unsure if you are still looking to stock up on those frames.

    p.s. I found a new colorway for that Pro Impact FT frame as well (mostly black). Looks nice, just not nice specs for me...

    I got the racquet (which is shown in the red colorway), except my racquets' colorway is yellow.

    Apparently. I was unaware that they changed the color to yellow for later models.

    Its been a while since i hit w/ it, but from what I remember, it was a very nice feeling racket. I only had 2 problems w/ it: First, I didn't like the handle shape. Trivial, I know, but back then they had more of a rounded handle shape (like Head? ). Second, I think it could have used some lead.

    I didn't have a balance board at the time, so I may have put the lead in the wrong spot. I remember putting it @ the 3 & 9 o'clock positions, but it might have been better suited at the throat.

    Now I may go home & string it up just to see how it hits...
