    Team Supdats for the win.

    P.s. JRS, where is the info?

    I predict a new world champion ;)

    Here yah go Sup -

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2009/sep/16/medoc-marathon-bordeaux-charity

    As for wine and running, everybody knows that's not a wise combination. Everyone that is except the French, whose Marathon du Médoc, which took place over the weekend, is a celebration of exactly that.

    Each year thousands of people, many of them in flamboyant fancy dress, gather in the town of Pauillac in the Médoc area of Bordeaux to run a course that winds through some of the world's greatest vineyards and is, without a doubt, the most Bacchanalian event in the charity sporting calendar.




    Sweet - I need some lotto with the chrome "bling"

    I also need mass Lotto as well. I really like the shock line.

    Xis, that Kontact was like last years stuff I remember TW was actually selling those for a bit. You may be able to find it on the bay or something.

    Right now you are one of the few dudes I know with new lotto stuff so your opinion is very valuable to us.

    Sup, we need to pressure this store owner guy mafia style. My Grandfather wasnt named Guido for nothing.

    Oh I put the pressure on. He was Italian, so we had choice words.

    I left with these last words:

    Sup: Make it happen for all our sakes.

    He showed me the catalogs he had and I made him call the distributor and leave a message. So my 411 is there. I'll just invite JRS for hooters again so I can visit next week.

    I tried to get JRS to take video with the Hooters girl, but he got shy and then realized I would post it.

    Oh wait.. you mean tennis. Hard to video and play at the same time.

    If you want an idea of our level of play. Think Jolly.. wait.. think 3.5.. wait.. same same. You know cause we are all 3.5s .. right JRS *shows cash in hand*

    Like these guys..

    Exactly - 3.5's all around (takes the cash).

    Well today is the Mrs. B-day celebration. Last thing I need to see is Sup posting me posing with the hooters girls on his facebook page.

    What you guys think of these kicks?

    [​IMG]

    The TEcmo Bo's turned out aiight. But not sweet enough to justify getting the all white joints.

    But these TokiDoki Chumpies may pose another dilemma. Asics may be in the redeeming themselves. The Mexico 66s are a sweet shoe as well.

    WTF is tokidoki anyway.

    I like the flavored wing sauce over just plain hot. Hooters used to have a sauce called spicy jack that wasa the best. It had some zip to it ut a nice flavor at the same time.

    But yes if they were lame I would threw hot sauce onthere and asked for some old bay if ididnt have my shaker in my pocket

    Restonites!

    I didn't realize the Simon Cup was last weekend. Bumner. They told me the field was weak. Guess they need to advertise better.

    Then I find out the association is taking a new direction. No more local tournaments but rather bigger Usta tournaments.

    So, after 3 years of no pay raises (and my paycheck has actually decreased, but that is a rant for another time), Arlington County decided today that the place where I and several other teachers park (and have been parking for YEARS) is suddenly...a drop off only zone. And we come trudging out of work to find a new sign and tickets on our cars.

    Really??? I mean C'MON!!!

    Anyway...the point here is that I was complaining about it, and a friend pointed me to this youtube video...freakin' HILARIOUS! And quite true...

    That video is good . I cant remember where id seen it before. Maybe JRK posted it a while back.

    I like at the end where he like

    "We can grab a coffee,
    At the Starbucks
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks,
    or the Starbucks."

    And looks like each shot was of an actual different starbucks. is there 16 starbucks around three?

    HW,

    I think you're right. TheJRK posted a video with this guy before. I remember it started the convo how guys shouldn't wear jeans with flip flops.

    Funny Video

    Btw, Hollywood, I very much recommend Mizunos for running. I would, however, also suggest that you go to a running store where they can watch you run and suggest a few shoes that suit you best according to your gait.

    My problem, and I dealt with it once before (oddly enough, the last time I trained for the Army 10 miler the same thing happened) is Illiotibial Band Syndrome. Pretty much a whole lot of overuse. Guess the running plus tennis was not such a great idea. :( I do have a friend who will buy my registration, though, so at least I will get my money back.

    Do you work during the day or go to work? I could possibly meet you during the day time. Nights are out of the question.

    P.s. the videos remind me of zapvor.

    I am 15 therefore I go to school. I come home around 3:00. I can play almost any time after 3:00. The problem is that I don't have transportation so I could only play at 2 courts near my house.

    That sucks. There is a poster up in Towson who is about your age. I'm sure he has the same transportation problems.

    Are you going to play any tournaments?

    No, my parents are don;t care at all about my tennis and I have financially support my self and buy all the equipment myself. Tournaments are way too expensive for me and my parents don't care and are very ignorant of my passion and drive for tennis. All my hitting partners are at a lower level than me. But I can't do better because of the lack of resources. I taught myself how to play and never got a tennis lesson but in 2 years of playing tennis I am able to play at 4.0.

    Yes, but high school season is in the spring and there are usually 25 people on 4 courts, so I don't really get better. I was undefeated in doubles last year until I went to states.

    Tough spot. If you lived closer to DC, the chances of hitting would be better. Are you going to play for your high school?

    Edit: Oh saw your post. Good job being undefeated in states.

    TWMAC, could you guys please try to keep Sup entertained and out of trouble?!! Now he has come sniffing into the AG 300 Appreciation Society and called out a Board Member (Shell herself) on her cheating, racquet whoring ways - starting all kinds of trouble and grief. :twisted:

    There will be paybacks Sup!

    BTW, how come I came all the way out there, and we did not meet? Seems we are cut out of the same cookie cutter :)

    Ha, Shell, instead of worrying about that, please help me figure out a way to keep all the d*mn epithelial tissues straightened out!

    Sup knows absolutely nothing about straying from one racquet to another...then another...then another...*coughcoughcough*. I'm sure NOBODY here in TWMAC can help you out with that one. :roll: LOL

    Are you still using the nCodes? Any new updates?

    You have some nice strokes. Why don't you hit with the guys from your team in the off season. You played 1 Dubs so I'm guessing the 1-4 singles guys would be a better challenge for you.

    No help with the epi(*(*&(ial tissue here, I can't even spell it. Seems like there are 3 layers, or is it 4? I do know that this trauma (read really bad wounds) nurse just spent the last weekend watching her foot turn ruby red with cellulitis without going to the ER because it didn't look bad enough. So what the heck do I know. Today I put on a shoe for the first time in a week.

    Yes, still with the NTours, although I have been swinging the AG 300 16x18 in my living room while watching Tennis Channel - which is a sign that I am discontent yet again.

    Go gut mains and SG crosses Topaz. You will like it, and it will match your playing style.

    I didn't spell it correctly at first either, but my computer actually caught it in my post!

    Cellulitis? Sh*t...something else to go look up!

    I have correctly, however, diagnosed my own IT band syndrome (AKA connective tissue behaving badly!) and used a foam roller for the first time today. That hurt like hell.

    I remember your string set up, I do...*eyebrow*...you have Maxim touch as your SG right?

    If you go back to your Dunlops, what will become of the nTours? Will you just add them to your collection?

    PS...looked it up, cellulitis is more connective tissue...behaving badly! Hope you're on the road to recovery!
