    Auzzie,

    Make sure JRS dont try to hit balls back to the dudes on the other end of the court. He has a habit of hitting them over the fence into the dog park.

    I like Towers park. hopefully you guys get an open court. Maybe you will see the GTIOAT (Greatest tennis instructor of all times AKA TKOTC the king of the court) and maybe JRKs boy will show up (the booty shorts guy).

    Much better than chair sitting guy and away guy I would say.

    I think I saw booty shorts guy at Wakefield HS a few weeks ago... I can't be sure though.

    JRS hitting that dude's ball over the fence into the dog park was the funniest thing I have ever seen on a tennis court... LOL, fetch b**ch.

    ruh roh...i think that i've lost my us open tickets...

    never mind. found 'em. in the bowels of my inbox. love the interwebs.

    p.s. @sup: just a thought...before going after hollywood's uneeck grammaticks, you should have (not should of) checked your own glass house first. would hate for you to have to forsake your mensa card!

    p.p.s. which monday/tuesday are you, ppl, & zap going? the first week? or the second week? i'm going tues & wed of the second week.

    Thanks again for the Hit Auzzie, I needed to that. Don't worry about the older dude, I doubt you would have gotten much tennis since he had a hip injury.

    Today I take over for Captain Ron.lol. Just 1/2 hour as the group of us are heading to some naval school to get a tour! I will try to haggle for u-boat watches and sell it to thejrk.

    tried to take a pic for twmac map, but almost fell off the boat. probably wasn't a good idea to try the captain morgan stance while holding a sign over rough waters.

    Boston got moved to tomorrow. we all hit the bars of newport yesterday. Made my way to the itf grass courts to watch some national open matches. took video.

    Tonight there is a surprise guest for my birthday. Have a feeling its some tennis legend who stayed in town after the tournament they held last year. That or its the mobs way of saying one of my 100 cousins. Im ready for the disappointment.

    One of the guys I work with is a member of the College Park Tennis Center - but that's a limited time deal as I can only be a guest four times. I'd like to join there, but the commute from my house to play tennis often would kill me.

    Last time me and Zap played on the courts at Un. of MD - very nice. Good lights.

    Actually, I'm going to McBail on arlington tonight. My wife's cousin has been talking smack about his tennis game for the past two years - but we never played. It's time to ante up and see who's best. We're going to try the courts at UMD, but we may move if they are crowded.

    the campus courts are nice as JRS says. now that everyone moved back for the semester they are going to be pretty crowded though.

    Auzzie if Zap shows up watch your back. I thik he is so infatuated with Han that he me shank you with one of those janks when you aint lookin. He worships Mr.Han and has a secret shrine to him in his closet so be careful.

    UMD wasn't too bad today.

    Dee's Cuz has a decent game too -he's about a 3.5/4.0 by my estimates. We were pretty even. I think he hits harder and is faster than I am but I'm more consistent.

    If I dare to give a unsolicited advice, bring the ear plugs unless you have good tolerance of constant traffic noise, since Seminary Park is right next to 83. If finding the nearest well-maintained courts is a priority, I'd go to Goucher.

    Yes, MrHan, that is the place.

    Thanks for the heads up! Hopefully the weather will cooperate, or Shell and I will just have to do battle over breakfast instead!

    ^^^It is Sunday, and Shell is covering the indoor option. My job was to investigate and secure various outdoor locations, for both tennis and for breakfast. I think we're good...I've got a whole list of ideas from you guys and my own surveillance!

    Unless...anyone have any breakfast ideas in that area?

    I know you mentioned it before, Lady Topaz. Nothing wrong with my memory, although the rest of my body is falling apart. Must be all this serve-and-volley tennis I'm trying to play lately. :)

    I do appreciate your very early reply; looks like Isner-clone and I will be playing singles.

    ^^^I can come out SAT morning, but have to leave something in the tank for a doubles match later that day.

    However, if I don't show up, it is because I've decided to sleep in on my last chance to do so before going back to school.
