    That's what I said all along Lotto is sweet. I gotta lose some LBs so I can fit into that stuff when We can get a hookup.

    Oh snap, just found the 105 version on another site for $79. Weird, I thought TW says that can guarantee the lowest price... :confused:

    I think I will be getting some new sticks!

    Yeah, ditto on the lbs. Also scored some new ASICS Res IIs for 86 bucks on a site other than this one. Ordered the white/rain grey/sun orange version, but they also have the blues. Will likely order those in a couple of weeks, too.

    I'm goin' broke trying to stay stylish. :shock:

    P.S. Check out these ASICS volleyball shoes:

    They GOTTA offer these in tennies, right?

    Just tell TW the othersite is selling for 79 and they will probably match. Unless the DATS trick works (Which it probably will).

    Xisbum,

    I must see these clothes asap. Went to the site you sent me and found this. Granted its not the red/yellow combo i wanted, but it sure looks sweet.

    p.s. Can't believe I'm even thinking of any purchase non-nike. Viva L'Italy!

    Its not Lotto's fault that this stuff looks supersweet. They seem to be ahead of the gameright right now with the Style. And thier footwear aint bad either. Not quite as colorful as Xis would like to see it. But thyey have figured it out.

    Nobdy willthink less of you for copin those Lotto janks

    It's Italian so I won't cry too much. Seriously. The lack of outfits here is enough for me to still stay away. The material better be made from elves and able to withstand spears to make me really want to change.

    was it a girly giggle? I have come to realize that TFM has many faces.. i mean giggles on the court:

    Hehehehhe = I will now drop shot you to see you run
    LOL = I just saw man boob jiggle
    Hahahaha = Nice shank

    Muwhaahha = I just saved a lot of money on my insurance.

    Been eyeing that one myself. Hard to tell what the colors are in a b&w photo, but it's available in several sizes.

    Material in the shirts I have is devine - smooth, like hot buddah. Not quite as soft as the Nike pink polo, but good enough. Can't wear them in public until I gets some Lotto shorts that fit, though. I have them hanging at the foot of our bed so they're the last thing I see before sleep and the first thing I see in the a.m.

    Does that qualify as a fetish? :oops:

    Bags of JO in plastic bags.
    Was the JO in one big palstic bags. or was there little bags in a bigger bag?

    What is HMART. And I would almost guess that they were 1/2lb or 8oz bags. If they were 1LB thats a good price and you should stock up for 2012 when the world is supposed to end. I think in 2012 all food as we know it will be gone. We will probably be stuck eatring actual people. Now Ive never ate a person before, but Im sure poeple meat will taste better with JO.

    I dont know about the spear thing, but I now that stuff looks too sweet to not be good. And its also too sweet for somebody not to want to sell this stuff to american people.

    Hmart is a huge asian market. Think Giant with little asian ladies rolling hard in the aisle paint. Its really neat.

    If we are demoted to eating people in 2012 (which I heard is the end), then its hard to decide which TWMAC member to eat. My vampire ways suggests:

    Zapvor: Like trying to suck bark off a branch. No meat.
    JRS: Could taste like jerk chicken, but he hasn't been marinating in beer for the last several years, so he may be bland.
    PPL: His diet suggest he would taste like mcnuggets and milkshakes. As good as that sounds, it would get old and artery clogging.
    TheJRK: Now he's been marinating for years in beer and vodka. He may be lean, but if you like pigs feet, his 13 size shoe would be a delicacy.
    Xisbum: He may be short in stature, but have any of you eaten aged beef. Its really really good. I would go for for Xisbum, hoping that his one beer a week gives him just the right hint of flavor with his age bones.
    TFM: Now there is a good grazer. High fatty food, beer and an occassional home cooked meal diet. I would swoop down on TFM like a vulture on road kill. I'll take him with a side of fava beans and chianti.
    HW: JO flavored, single, with an upper MD diet. So I suppose he taste like crabs and take out. I'm a little afraid of what he would taste like to be honest. Like when I first had a taste of eel. At first I thought it would taste nasty, but after I got over the facade it was pretty tasty.
    Sappy: I would like to live to 3012 and not die of high cholesterol. I'll keep the android though.
    Dats: Again he would be nicely marinated in beer and alcohol.His diet would suggest he would taste like an international buffet. However, does korean food go well with a side of cabbage and potatoes. I'm afraid too much of a good thing is too much.

    Food tastes better when you have to work for it. Like T-rex.

    I'll be down if it doesn't rain...... which it looks like it will. Meeting you at Jefferson after 7pm will be a lot easier than getting to skyline on time considering my daddy duties.

    I'll keep you updated...

    Xis- check soccer.com for lotto shorts. Lotto soccer gear maybe a bit more common in the US.

    I used to wear lotto soccer boots (cleats) back in the day, the lasted forever...

    Well, after the Colts game last night... my final FF score was 201-80. I got a trophy for 'biggest beatdown', LOL. :)

    Dats - Where do I get this coupon you speak of?

    Just spoke with TW about the Fischers... they would match the $79 price point. Now I can get two for the price of one, almost. :)

    I just got a call from the Lotto rep. They knew exactly what outfits I was talking about, leading me to think that there are a bunch of potential eager shoppers out there. The problem is that they will NOT be getting a shipment for a couple months. Then and only then, the US selection will be limited.

    My interpretation: Yeah I know you want it. Too bad. Want some soccer shoes?

    So I've decided to call my travel agent. Time to go back to the homeland (Italy), with an empty suitcase.

    Viva Nike!

    JRS,

    Please don't get more adidas stuff after i tell you this.

    Rumor is that Tsonga is signing with Babolat.

    Eh, the honeymoon is over. I did like hitting (groundstrokes) with the Prince, but my serves and volleys never felt as good as I would have liked... not that I'm good at volleys anyway.

    I've had a mancrush on the Fischers for a while now though.

    **EDIT**
    Looking at TW's site again, I see that one of the 'comparable' rackets to the 105 is the Prince Ozone Tour, so it's understandable why I liked both of them.

    LOL you are sick.

    hmart is a korean market. shcmad probably works there. they have stuff for really cheap considering what you get. but i was walking around and suddenly saw it. it's in individual plastic bags,and they have like a huge box of it. each bag is about 16oz.

    I bet they are 8 oz bags. That seasoning usually sells for 7 to 8 bucks a pound.

    Cool, I'll keep you guys posted.

    Hey, since you are our resident Jerk Chicken (Jamaica) guy, what do you think of this place? http://www.rockhousehotel.com/hotel/escape.php

    The wife and I are thinking of staying there.

    Hey JRK,

    pssst... you seeing this?.. okay...ready?

    Fischer got sold.. no mas. So get as many sticks as you want or think twice about buying a discontinued brand. Especially since its not your main current sticks.

    That is all.
