    dats - thanks for the link and code. you're the man!

    i'll be there monday, wednesday, and friday. more than likely, i'll buy another ticket for the friday night session so i dont have to drive back in rush hour traffic. i'm going by myself so if anyone wants to hang out before or after, let me know!

    Hahaha, I forgot about the damn serve cage... my racket was scraping the top of the net. It was impossible to get a decent swing, plus I was drunk. Still broke a hundred though. I should've tried serving while kneeling. It looks as though Dats and I have epilepsy while warming up. :oops:

    Keep in mind, it was raining when we first got there so play was suspended... we were forced to drink. Plus I was drinking with Sappy at the bar beforehand. That's also when I was molested by the cougar club. :(

    I think sappy tried stealing that rascal scooter while I was trying to distract the Mercedes booth girl. :confused:

    ***I can see the future*** I predict Sup will return from the planet krypton tomorrow. :shock:

    *yawn* morning TWMAC.

    dvi -- i am like switzerland and i don't like to get involved in petty squabbles. i save my nekkid guy in speedos and guns photo for special situations.

    alice -- i've been called a rat before so that's nothing new. but that rat isn't even one of those nyc sewer rats the size of dogs so it is far too little to be me. the only thing that makes me happy is that i have never been called rat face, lucy lui or megatron.

    auzzie -- i'm a complete wreck. i don't even feel like playing tennis ever since you took my #1 spot on the TWMAC ladder. i'm a 4.0 tennis player but there's nothing else in my sad life that i'm even a 3.5 in. oh wait - i'm probably a 4.0 buffet destroyer. figure i'm better than 80% of the people who've ever attempted to destroy a buffet. but there's still guys out there who make me look like a loser in the buffet destruction industry.

    how about the rest of you fools. what are the three things you are best at and what would the NTRP rating be?

    Sandbagger!!!! You're at least a strong 4.5, maybe even 5.0, at buffet destruction.

    Tennis - 3.5
    Grillin on my charcoal weber - 4.5
    Changing Diapers - 7.0

    wookie -- i call BS. you are not a 7.0 diaper changer. you have one little girl. figure on a heavy day you might change her diaper a half dozen times. and maybe once a day she might drop the deuce. i'd say i'm a strong 3.0 diaper changer and i have 2 kids. a 7.0 diaper changer is the nanny for octomom's kids or whoever used to change the diapers for jon and kate's 8 kids. a strong 5.0 is probably someone who works in a daycare center. you are no 7.0 diaper changer. you are a poser. ;)

    as far as unique set of skillz -- i'd say you are a strong 5.0-5.5 in handling spicy food. maybe higher if you trained more.

    Forgot to mention... I did get to hit with the demos last night for about an hour or so.

    Ranking:

    1. Youtek Radical OS
    2. Gamma T-7
    999. Kobra Tour

    I don't know what it is about the new Radical but it's basically a 1000 times better version than my Ti Radicals. The beam is the same thickness as my Ti but it plays like it has a super thin beam (if that makes sense). Volleys and slices were much better with the Youtek than my Ti, as were my serves. The racket flex was really nice, I felt like I could just slingshot the ball over the net.

    I liked the Gamma on my ground strokes, especially my backhand but you really have to swing that racket to get it going. If you don't commit to the swing the ball will hit the net. Volleys were nice and crisp but I couldn't hit a damn serve in to save my life. I think I hit one serve in with that racket. Slices really penetrated though, which would suit my chip and charge game.

    The Wilson was terrible... the beam is like a foot thick and I just don't like leather grips. I don't like feeling the bevels cutting into my hand. Also, I couldn't keep the ball in the court, the racket is too overpowered for me. My first 20 groundstrokes hit the fence on the fly. It could've been the strings though as they were some weird looking "clear-rubber" type of string I've never seen before.

    TFM / Maryland peeps:

    I'm Playing at the College Park Tennis Center today from 6-7:30 pm. Hit me up if anyone wants to hit on the MD side around 8pm-ish for a bit. Figure I try to squeeze in an extra hour or so of tennis on my way home.

    Hello everybody!

    JRK .. you're psychic! or.. maybe you had enough brain cells after last night to remember that I "told" you I was going to post today.

    I've been very busy buying up GM stock and handling world affairs with diplomacy and a big stick. Sadly it hasn't helped ease my schedule to post as much as I would like.

    Just yesterday Sappy called to tell me 2 things. 1) My posts went down to 1499 from 1500 and 2)that Zap made a plea for my return. I didn't believe #2 so I had to see what was going on.

    Wow.. lots of posts to read through.

    So.. let me put on my "el jefe" hat for this Legg Mason event. We will make it real simple.

    Monday - Thursday: Anyone going, should meet at the front of the practice courts (between the courts and the main stadium) at 3:45pm. That will give you enough time to meet up, wait for late guys and get to your seats for any featured match.

    Friday: This is simple. SAME Place. Anyone going, should meet at the front of the practice courts (between the courts and the main stadium) at 11:45am.

    If you are unsure about going, don't want to go alone, or just feel like you need someone to hold your hand, then you have bigger problems than going to Legg Mason. Please email Sap with what keeps you up at night.

    So for those who need the cliff notes version:

    Legg Mason: Mon-Thursday meet at the practice courts (between the courts and the stadium) at 3:45pm. Friday, same place.. 11:45am.

    So continue on. I must find a place to post to get back to 1,500 posts.

    Adios
    Sup

    Haha, what?!?! I talked to you last night? Just kidding... those beers were good.

    I'm definitely going to the Legg Mason Monday-Thursday (one of those days), just need to quit procrastinating and buy tickets.

    hey shcmad... way to post the thoughtful/impartial/carefully reasoned response in the whacky reference thread!
    from now on i call you "judge Shcmad Sotomayor"


    especially now that he has defamed ALL of twmac, i hope somebody can find a proper (either really mean, really juvenile, really funny, or some combination thereof) response that possibly contains a certain image that accurately depicts that insane internet time waster. plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Nitefly proposed Severn Valley in MD for early Sat. or Sunday afternoon. I said I was up for either, Alice said she would drive there Saturday but not Sunday, and Woodman can't drive down until Sunday.

    That's the last I saw before Mason's Leggs took over the thread.

    I'll still go to Severn Hills Saturday, but might be tied up Sunday - leather rope, too. :)

    Who wants to commit to Severn Hills - wherever that is - for Saturday morning?

    hula hooper skill of 4.5 would be pretty darn good. not sure how someone would become a 7.0 unless they are hula hooping a couple dozen hoops while balancing on a tight rope while playing a banjo maybe.

    i think i would probably be a 4.5 scrabble player. not professional but better than the average non-professional bear.

    also speaking of useless skillz -- sappy collects these stupid things called mighty muggs. i'm not sure they have any value whatsoever. i would imagine he's easily a 6.0+ in collecting mighty muggs.

    I don't know whether I should take that title with pride... From what I hear, Sotomayor is not that impartial...:)

    Anyways, Dats, feel free to post the "Jack Black with PlayStation" picture in your whacky Reference thread. That will surely stop everyone from visiting the thread.

    Just repeatin' Nitefly's suggestion, Allie. As I said, have racquet, will travel - anywhere. Someone needs to make a decision, though, and soon.

    Have to admit, would be good to see Woodman in all his Neanderthal glory again. He's a likeable lug. :)
