    We may need a fourth.

    The courts are here: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&s...216399&spn=0.007968,0.013754&t=h&z=16&iwloc=A


    I'm talking USTA rating not Jolly Roger Scale.

    Looks like me, Magma, and maybe TFM and yourself....

    I forgot to mention this earlier... but HW, one of the Mystics players lives in my building. Want me to set up some one-on-one action? I'm talking about basketball.

    JRstriker/Magma - I'll see you guys at Jefferson tonight.

    I would pay 25 bucks for a ticket. Just one on one. To 11 and take backs. Old school.

    I think HW can do it to be honest. I think he will go Animal house on her. Also if she is a lesbian, she wont stop putting her hands on him (according to his thought process). Foul!

    Seriously. I put $10 on HW for the win.

    Heres the problem. I am not and have never been a good one on one player. One on one elimates just about all my strenghts on a court. It elimates my abilty to get good position in the post and use my suprisingly good agility and footwork to create easy baskets.

    I would actually have trouble beating anyone one on one. In a team game though match me up against her and I will win that match up easily.

    JRK wats this broads name? I garuntee she dont roll hard in the paint like I do. Can she play ping pong? I will crush her in ping pong. She will almot undeniably beat me in Horse or any kind of shooting contest.

    Sappy,

    I was talking about a Jo11yroger keyboardcat video. Everyone konws you have 2 career victories against top 100 ATP players. You would never shank a ball or demonstrate poor technique.

    You should see his other avatar... where someone is demonstrating the over the net position. TFM is always living on the edge with this avatar.

    Hey buddy boy. Give me a call in the morning or get online. We can hit indoors. Say noon? or is that when you get up?

    Wouldn't be a post to you without a PP comment.

    I think I have an idea of what PP will be for Halloween.

    By the power of greyskull!

    Also I think it is impossible to find out the names of these girls. I cant for the life of me find out this information.

    Here I am trying to support these young girls' careers as a model and I cant find out who the eff they even are.

    haha, do you really? Is it alright if your doubles partner can't volley to save his own life? :twisted:

    Please do tell me the details about Friday, such as time and $. Thanks.

    You knw as well as I do that the whole reson I coined the term was because of TFM. And I did coin the term. if yoiu go back through my 1k+ posts in this thread. one of the I say TWMACBAilerton in reference to TFM. JRK obviously liked the term so he decided to join the MAC Bailerton club :)

    Strill dont know what times on monday. I have to be in Tilly at 8am. They will probably have me do a whole damn day though. at least till 3 or so.

    I get a job 5 minutes from my house and Im stoked by the elimination of 5k a year in vehicle associated costs and my frist day I get to drive to chantilly. FML (A term I belive started by TFM if I recall correctly)

    Your volley is fine; your confidence in it sux.

    Sup, JRS and I are playing at Fairfax Racquet Club from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Friday. My club, so I cover court costs; just need 7 bucks guest fee from each of you.

    You are more than welcome to join us. :)

    Sorry holmes... I ended up getting stuck at work until almost 8pm. Still had to go home, feed/walk the dogs, change, and then make it out to the courts. When I got home it started raining, so I said f**k it.

    Is the clinic tonight or what?

    Sup - Is the regular clinic group starting tonight? I know you read these posts. If you are answering me by calling my cell phone, I left it at home by accident. :mad:

    Alright... just wondering. Didn't want to show up tonight and Sup would be like WTF?!?!

    On a side note, we should have Poker night sometime. Tuesday night I was up $1k, but ended up with $400. That's enough to get me some new tennis threads at least.

    JRK, I asked Sup last night at our women's clinic if you boys were starting tonight, and he said yes! ???

    Hopefully you've heard back from him by now and you know for sure...don't take my word for it but don't take Sappy's either!!!

    Hahaha... was Sappy just trying to trick me so he could bail on the clinic as well?

    Either way, I'll show up (6pm?). If no clinic, I can just work out. :)

    If you guys don't mind, I would like to join in (therefore, bringing down the level of play:twisted:).

    I only have Sup's number. Do I call him when I get there? Or do I just make my way into the club? :)

    Excellent, buddy, excellent. You can either wait at the check in desk for me or wait for me in the parking lot. I think I'm the only club member of the group.

    See you there.

    How much does it cost to join the FFX Racquet Club? Are random courts easily reserved, or are they all taken up with seasonal reservations?

    Just ordered some from there; should be here in about 2 weeks. Prices were about the same, but size selection was better. Just filling in some shorts - and one polo - for what I already have.

    Can't find any wrist bands, though. Bummer.

    Oh, well. Off to FRC

    So, JRS and Magma have posted since clinic, so we know they got out ok.

    Any word from JRK???

    I'm a bit worried for Xis and Siccy.

    BTW- Thanks to Xis for being a great host again and for some fun tennis at the FRC.

    Highlights:

    -Sup wanted to hit the fed tweener shot SO BAD it was funny, but none of our lobs landed in.
    -Shcmad's shanked overhead that ended up going right at me after I ran off the side of the court.
    -Xis hits another ace against me :mad:
    -JRS gets revenge against Shccy with a shanked volley off a poach.

    Tons of fun guys.

    Tennis was followed up the ceremonial eating of cheese steaks ;)

    JRS's new motto: HA! I'll take it.
