    Sup/Xisbum...can one of you put in our score from today? I have no clue as to my password on TennisEngine (keep trying what I thought it was, but it isn't working).

    Xisbum defeated Topaz 6-2.

    Edit...wow, that was quick.

    ^^^Was just entering the score after getting up from my nap. :) You know us old folks need our rest.

    Can't think of a thing to add to your fabulous list, except it was "fun, fun, fun til her daddy took the T-Bird away."

    Good to meet Zappy finally. Now I can say I know Sappy and Zappy. Good to hit a few with MrHan; glad I didn't have to attempt to return his serve. And he's a nice guy, too. As always, a pleasure teaming up with the JRK - call us the Mutt and Jeff team, please.

    Always nice hitting with and against the JJJoshes - he has more shots in his bag than I've seen in my long, illustrious tennis career, and she can smack the ball with anyone. SchMad, you and I should play more dubs as a team; remember the volley is your friend, but it ain't a ground stroke.

    What a wonderful way to spend an August Saturday morning. My only complaint - my beautiful pink shirt got heavy, hot and clingy after a while. Think I'll stick to sleeveless for the rest of the summer.

    All hail the organizer extraordinaire, Lady Topaz. She will be an excellent nurse one day soon.

    hey PPL I was wonding what happened to you, hope you feel better.

    thank you for not hitting my new partner today in the crotch when I set her up a few times.

    Topaz- thanks for organizing, you forgot to mention you not only returned one of Han's serves you also hit a hard forehand that he could not return at the net.

    Shcmad, Zap and JRK- I hope to get to play a match with you guys again sometime, for some reason I always end up playing mixed doubles.

    Nice to hit with you again Xis, we destroyed team Topaz/Mrs.jjjosh, still contemplating pulling the trigger on the Asics.

    OH, that's right, I did! I think at that point I was just swinging for the fences!

    I also forgot to mention trying to return MrHan's serve while eating a granola bar. I thought...hey, definitely won't hurt, and it could help!

    You should at least try the Game; it's not that expensive and gives you a feel for the ASICS cushioning. I like it fine, but the Res2 has just a tad more cushioning and a different sole pattern that - to me - really digs into hard courts. I think the Game sole pattern might be a tad better on clay.

    Good hitting today, partner, with both touch and power. I envy your power, I really do. :)

    You almost looked as good in the pink polo as I did. Almost.

    I was going to wear my new sleeveless JMDP outfit today, but I figured my chances of wearing the pink at the same time as TheJRK or Xisbum was too slight not to take a chance.

    And TheJRK finally put a hair product in his hair. I barely recognized him.. or his game. He was hitting well with that Prince. Is he going to pull the trigger?

    would have driven less today if i'd gone to va to play tennis. but my dad wanted to go to rock hall, md (google and weep for me, everyone) for crabs. since my dad rarely, like never, wants to go anywhere, i humored him. oh my gawwwwwwd. 3.5 f***ing hours to get there because of bay bridge traffic.

    but!!! i was rewarded: we stopped at an outlet mall on the way back (don't know where--somewhere between the end of the continental US and home), and i scooped up a stella top for...$10! i was in a euphoric daze the rest of the way home.

    have to go to bed nownownow: i was coerced into playing mixed doubles tomorrow morning at 8 am. they don't know what they're asking of me...

    Okay - know I was dissing the polka dots, but the blue polo that Rafa was wearing against Del Potro is NICE!

    Good hittin' everyone! Nice to see some familiar old faces today.

    -Toepeezy, you hit some nice winners during the warm-up. I think this is the first time that a player beats another player during a warm-up.

    -Mr. and Mrs. JJjosh, thanks for driving all the way down to VA. A shame that we couldn't play a real match, but hitting afterward was nice. Mr. JJjosh, I swear you look like a 15 y/o.

    -TheJerk, that Thai guy's voice was annoying me the whole time during the doubles match. I blame my poor play on his voice. LOL.

    -Xis, believe it or not, I "try" to not take huge cuts at the ball when I'm at net. LOL.

    -PPL, it's OK. I know how scary it is to think getting hit in the crotch by one of my backhands. Kidding. Hope you feel better.

    -Sup, what do you mean by "teach shcmad"?

    Maybe. Waiting to hear from some repair guys since one of our inside air conditioning units has started to leak - badly. If they can get here Monday afternoon-evening, I have to stay home. Wife has flown to Memphis for a week or so.

    I should know for sure sometime tomorrow morning, if you can wait that long.

    It was nice hitting with everyone on Saturday. Watching Zap and Shcmad yell at each other while playing on the same dubs team was the highlight of the day for me. :)

    Sup - I really like that racket, speaking of which I need to get it back to you. I wanna see how much money I blow in Miami this weekend before I commit to buying a few, plus the bag.

    If you go to Miami, you should hit the TW South Florida Chapter to find out if anyone can hit with you in the morning. Gives Mrs.TheJRK time to recover from the night before.... naughty kids!

    Let me know about the racquet and bag!

    You're on. I like a little arrogance in an opponent, however misguided. Reminds me of - me. :)

    Most of the time anything north of 50 from Bmore is faster to take 95 north to elkton and then head south. I know it looks really bad. but there isnt much traffic until you get back to 301/50. if your dad wants to do that again sometime try it. But you wont pass the queenstown outlets, you will pass the perryville outlets (which suck).

    Sup, next monday come to HdG. I need and excuse to clean my house. Any one else is invited also. I need an excuse to clean my house and play tennis :)

    Still waiting on the air conditioning technician. Might be better if you found someone else - Dats, SchMad, Sup? I just can't commit until I get this unit fixed (no TFM jokes, please). Hope you understand.
