    Void of reason?

    Why becuase nobody will debate the fantabulously craptastic play of the WTA?

    I think PPL is still pounding Filet O' Fishes though. So Sup must not be treating those sweat shop workers that bad. he is at least treating them 28 times better than most.

    I would've assumed you were related to the person who makes the best Thai dish you have ever had.

    had this at a place in rockville called AGAINN called scottish egg.

    Wikipedia: A Scotch egg consists of a shelled hard-boiled egg, wrapped in a sausage meat mixture, coated in breadcrumbs, and deep-fried.

    Was it any good?

    Looks like it could be good. Im gonna take a hard boiled egg and put it in the middle of a crab cake and then deep fry it. Ill call it the "Cheaspeake Egg"

    Or use scrapple and call it the "Amish Egg". the possibilites are endless.

    Guess McNabb's chunky soup commercials are done.

    Who eats chunky soup? I saw a commercial showing people putting chunky soup over rice and mashed potatoes. That is one thick soup.

    i texted you the other day to hit in the snow... no response :confused:


    oh and zap, yeah downs_chris is an awesome player.
    Combo of:
    HW's serve and shrimp scamperability;
    Xisbum's guile and style;
    DVI's ferrocity and Hewittness;
    Topaz's work ethic and tenacity;
    P-man's spin and racquet-a-holic-ness;
    Sappy's nonchalance and sandbaggedness;
    Tennismonkey's trick shot repertoire and laugh-at-your-mistakes-ness; JRS's hellish-long reach and NTRP rating;
    JRK's flexy racquet needs and TE pensions;
    Schmad's flat, go-for-broke sensibility;
    Sup's equipment savviness and organizational leadership;
    and your own self-confidence

    :)

    whoa...i think you're exaggerating a little bit here...haha, i just like to try to hit the ball as hard as i can...and this is probably why i don't win as much as i should...plus, i think i love tennis equipment, more than actually playing tennis....

    So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen

    TWMAC,

    It's with heavy thought that I say goodbye to NOVA and my tennis friends. I've decided over the course of the year, that I'm going to travel for an extended period of time. Each stop on my travel will help me decide where to hang my proverbial hat.

    So I say goodbye to each of you and apologize if I forget anyone or anything. I'm amongst moving boxes and the bells are ringing for my exit.

    Zapvor: Your child like enthusiasm boosted your quick creation of this site. I thank you for those sympathetic keystrokes. I will remember you for your basketball shorts, your "oh yeah", and attempt to not attempt.

    JRStriker: Dear wookie and friend. We have had many years playing tennis around the woods of endor. I find your innocent charm and calm demeanor opposite to your hunger to compete. Funny I said hunger. I will remember our long winter doubles sessions with the fab four and your cries of celebration that oddly sound the same as your cries of desperation. Keep low and swing high wookie.

    PurePrestige: Ah how time has passed. I suppose your USOpen goals have been set aside for your new job in politics. Which seat do I take? I'll remember you for your fascination of racquet specs. As some enjoy the pursuit of the perfect racquet, I always suspected you were building one made of pure lead tape in your basement. Keep your michael buble charm and remember no one messes with sasquatch more than a dozen times.

    BadDog: You were the first person to show up with a woman. I remember Zapvor's attention toward downward dog. You are a testimony to positive thinking and forward progress. I cannot remember once hearing a negative comment from you. I will remember you for your pursuit of the perfect tennis string, your porsche, paying me in beer mini-kegs and giving me a new outlook for the love of tennis.

    Shcmad: I suppose you have flat lined your pulse on the TWMAC scene for an adventure in your beloved korea. I did enjoy hearing your Safin and Gulbis ideas with that soft voice made for american idol stardom. Hopefully you are blasting away flat forehands on a korean tennis court and taking no prisoners in karaoke battles. I will remember your red face during our sake drinking in Baltimore and your hidden fascination of Panterka.

    Topaz: Endure with your tennis challenges but don't forget the if fate gives you lemon... make lemon drops. Dropshot! You have been the only member in TWMAC that could show up in a tennis skirt, not back down to your WTA ways, take the abuse from your fellow TWMAC brothers and still keep coming back. Now that's enduring. I will remember our Goran bronze feat at nationals and you finally finding the right Nike in your life. Remember even a D- is passing.

    TFM: Monkey see but do monkeys taste delicious? It's ironic that your tennis game reminds me of iron chef. Competition that has a lot of slap, chops, slices on a grand scale. I do hope you find your perfect racquet, but hope more that you enjoy the fun in tennis. I'll remember your humor, your four stomachs, your ray romano comments about your family, and more importantly your mcbails.

    Shintan: Charles Barkley in a Japanese shell. I haven't seen Charles on TV in a long while. Is he still alive? Are you still alive? It's with no coincidence that I compare you to Charles Barkley. Your tennis game is similar to his game. Perhaps one day it will achieve his basketball greatness and not his golf strokes.

    JRK: Smile and the world smiles with you, unless your a Dallas Cowboy fan with tennis elbow (said before the game). Are you ever in a bad mood? Are you ever going to share the cocktail that makes you so darn happy? Are you ever going to answer your phone? It does make me feel hopeful to see someone so happy and lucky in his life. I will remember your 360 volleys, your old man forehand, your fascination of serve speeds and spins, your little girl and your shared appreciation of Nike apparel. BTW, did you know where Duran duran got their name? Ask Jane Fonda.

    Magma: Do you and Corey Heart wear your sunglasses at night. Congrats on your baby. Let us know when JRK's kid and yours have a tennis battle for second generation supremacy.

    Hollywood: Where did who go? I won't get tired of saying that. I haven't gotten tired of hearing your logic on lesbians in sports, who the greatest athletes are, crab seasoning and what makes your game level out. I will remember our HDG adventures, your down to mars nature and your hospitality.

    Sappy: Summon the keyboard cat. I'm almost out of here. Please refrain from stringing other members racquets. I will remember you for your hooked on phonics humor, your ability to find deals and your appetite for destruction. Rub your stomach for good luck for me and don't let anyone steal food from panda.

    Xisbum: My young at heart friend. In my opinion, you are still the sharpest tool in this shed of tennis players. Or perhaps the brightest, literally on the court. I will miss our banter, and your insights to the past, present and future. Keep these guys in check and let me know when Memphis is ready for a visit.

    Dats: Where is Vitaly? Victorrrr...y! Extreme.. to the max. Pizza guys will remember us for beer consumption. Skyline will remember you for your hatred of all things A/C related. I will remember you for your uniqueness and ability to fight the system. Keep on trucking and watch out for Gina.

    I know there are so many others. We have had 50 plus members join and play with the TWMAC. Some great BBQs, tennis socials, tournament adventures. We even traveled outwards and played with other chapter members. I was thankful you let me organize and lead this motley crew and I wish you guys the best.

    See you on the flip side

    I vote for a deserted caribbean island ... then you can sponsor the best TWMAC-TWCAR meet-up ever.

    also maybe in the future christopher nolan can reboot the Sup2Dresq in NOVA story.

    good luck.

    If you ever need a place to stay in Grace you know who to ask.

    And if you are ever in Rapid City South Dakota don't waste your time Mt Rushmore. It much more breathtaking in the photos.

    Also Im not exactly sure what down to mars means. But If I go by urban dictionary definitions that its the opposite of dowen to earth and they define down to earth as this

    "someone who can eat a bowl of golden grahams while watching conan o brien on tv."

    The I guess Im the opposite of that. Because it would be lucky charms and not conan.

    Take it easy sup. Drop us a few posts here and there.

    It's been fun. I wonder if we'll have another official meet without El Jefe?

    Hope you find the right spot and keep up with your tennis game.

    holy batman!

    i dont know...i think we should do an intervention on sup. the alcohol is getting to him. although i like to thnik the MAC is pretty much self sufficient, it would never ever be the same without all its members. when shintan left it was insanely tragic. for sup to go it's only more so. its definitely a cold winter day for the MAC to hear sup leaving. after all the MAC is nothing without its members. and i want to say for the record sup is as good a member any chapter can ask for.

    Should be firmly ensconced in The King's Country no later than 31 December 2011, maybe sooner. It's been my privilege sharing the court of battle with you. Meanwhile, I'll leave you with an appropriate tune which happens to be one of my all-time favorites...

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

    sup leaves once the snow falls and it is impossible to play outside! (unless u have auzzie shrimp scamperability!)
    how am i supposed to keep up my 7.5 tennis&buffet rating without my indoor clinic to test my accuracy blasting A/C units?

    well, if you must go... fine then. Just don't start posting beach pictures from Florida, Hawaii, Tahiti, etc....
    Food pics are always welcome though. Especially croque madams in Paris.
    I might post my own pics in 2011. I wanted to go to Australian Open but that ain't happening. But Roland Garros '11 is still possible and I am saving my rutabegas now for the trip!

    Fare the well! I'll let the guys at the pizzeria know they don't need to keep so many beers chilled now at lunchtime!
    don't forget to write. arrivederche! bon voyage! adios amigo!

    (woah as i started to write this, 2 COPS just knocked on my door saying that they got a call that a woman was hit at this address... they almost took me down. yipes. a final SUP prank? hrmmmm, maybe just coinkydink?! har. thank goodness for attack poodle keepin them back!)

    Best of luck brother.
    Hope you find what you're searching for.

    You will not be missed.

    Can we buy you a beer before you depart?

    Seriously, thanks for everything.
