    just bought 2 yonex RDiS100 mids ... .again!
    (the vicious cycle continues!)

    this time i bought 5/8 racquets after extensive meditation on why my forehand and serve get so wristy. MUST be the grip size i've been using is too small. hopefully THIS is the fix that solves all that has prevented me from being praised by all of twmac for my complex yet beautiful&flowing game of les tennez!!!!

    of course i had to buy yonex shoes and a few shirts too..just cuz.
    fark, they should not give credit cards to wishywashy people like me.
    I IS SOO DUMB! I MUST BE REALLY DUMB!!

    dats. what's going on sunday? you know i only like to string up my racquets 17.6 hours before a match..no more no less. and that's all 7 of my matched and balanced prostaff st. vincints.. that's well over $100 worth of just string every time i step on court to destory you. so don't waste my gut strings and/or time and/or feelings let me know if we are hitting sunday afternoon..

    p.s i also have plans for a buffet sunday morning so this would dictate how much i eat.. okay who am i kidding, i'll still eat 5 plates.

    hoot..

    i have some meetings lined up with very important people starting at 1pm.. so i may be booked unless we do 11am?

    i probably won't have my "player's sticks" yet anyway and i should only play with them since obviously my complex game of balletic yet intensely powerful tennis requires the absolute in precision that clearance racquets with giant grips can provide!

    p.s. - where's the buffet??? wooot

    I for one have always been enthralled by the intricate grace, power and beauty of your tennis game, on those rare occasions when you manage to pull youself away from the deadly gravitational pull of Pandora.

    And it's about time someone else realized the benefit of a BIG grip. Hope it works for you as well as it did for me back when I could still play the game. :(

    What up X man?

    Im only 10 months away from being able to go to memphis and eatin a burger fried in 100 year old grease.

    I think the 100 YO grease will drastically improve my net game.

    Official plans are to retire from DOS no later than 12/31/11 (maybe sooner) and return to the Promised (Grace)Land. You, Sup and all are invited to visit our humble abode and eat all the 100-year-old grease burgers you can handle, with the best BBQ in the world for dessert. Should start planning that visit to coincide with the big indoor tournament held at the Racquet Club every February, with both men and women draws.

    Nah, knee and everything else is just fine. All this talk lately about which barbed wire works best on which fence post just hasn't touched this old son of a farmer. Like to stick with a stick and roll with a wire that feel good when ball meets wire, so all this technical BS takes me to Yawn City. LOL.

    Been playing with the old folks at FRC, where it's usually toasty and full of kids like you, good buddy. Trying to hang on to my dwindling skillz as long as I can.

    Yeah, I gots some new duds, alright, but can't show you until I gets a pair those yellow Res 3s to match your green Yonexxesxx. Forget the Nikes - Sup's in Florida and you don't have to suck up to us homies, dude.

    Know what we used to call players in Memphis who use 5/8 grips? MEN.

    Know what we used to call players in Memphis who use 3/8 grips? WOMEN.

    In your honor, A-man. I can see you shooting a few of these curls.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AepyGm9Me6w

    And if you are even close to a beach with wahines like this and all you're thinking about is a tennis racquet, we need to have a long, long talk when you get back.:shock:

    We shall see what happens. I will consume one of those burgers some time in 2012 though. It will be my way of shwoing how much full of crap these people are thinking the Mayans predicted the end of the world. They never said that was the end of the world they just got tired of wrinting dates down 2k years in the future.

    Now Jehovahs witnesses have predicted the world was going to end like 3 or 4 times now. Maybe they will get it right one of these days.

    Whats the deal with the tournament? How big is it? Will somebody cool be there?

    Tournament usually draws pretty well. This year's lineup looks really strong:

    http://www.memphistennis.com/2011-players

    Nice club, too, except it's a bit high falutin' for me. My club had more blue-color players like me; this one attracts the upper crust, or at least the ones who don't belong to country clubs.

    Good place to watch tennis and get out of the February weather.

    ^^^^^

    Sweet man, but you shouldnt have a problem selling those as long as the price is fair. I think they are still well sought after by people.

    Now my TFs on the other hand I would have trouble giving them away. Thank goodness I actually like them.

    Get the wrist healed! And don't knock my S2! That frame got me through junior year of high school.


    Just don't trade the last one for used clothes like dats does...

    Xis, I can't help it... No matter what beach and surroundings, I'm always taking practice swings in my head :)

    I saw that clip last week. Im not quite sure poeple think its so funny. Is it the announcers reaction?

    These guys are hack pro wrestlers. I mean come on hypnotizing someone? Are they serious.

    But we can go see those guys in Philly on March 12 at 730 pm. front row tickets are 30 bucks.

    hopefully 48hours and ibuprofen will fix it! cuz i hope to be playing on clay courts and getting some clinics in soon!

    if auzzie is browsing the TT classifieds from Hawaii, the boy has issues!!!!
    the truth will out!

    what happened to FEDOR?????

    My resort in Maui has 2 lighted courts and free cheapo racquets and somewhat bouncy balls to play with... Anyone want to hit???

    @Dats, I might have checked FS/FT, and I also might have insider trading info. But it's common knowledge about where you get your designer matching tennis kicks and threads :)

    hey i've just visited my bank vault of over 10 million US dollars. I'm not sure if i can make that happen for you, but if there's enough interest.. and i stress IF and INTEREST, then i can see if it's possible for the same 10 million to appear in your vault.




    P.s downs_chris.. zapvor is like 500 super super saiyan levels above TFm in terms of mcbailing..

    Sappy,

    That's uncanny. I just received an email from Nigeria saying if I tell them some info they will wire me some money. If there was interest of course.

    JRS,

    Just finished running, sat down with a glass of water and caught an episode of Fresh Prince.

    I imagine you do the Carlton dance when you either:

    A) get a free night without the kiddo and wife.
    B) manage to beat TFM or Auzzie.
    C) get free waffles or a major discount
    D) all of the above

    It's not unusual... is it?

    LOL!

    I may Dougie or do The Wop, but there is no Carlton Dancing. The ironic thing about that whole "carlton can't dance" thing is that Alfonso Ribeiro used to have his own line of "how to breakdance" commercials. I wonder if Will Smith had a grudge agaist that guy?

    @ Hollywood.

    In honor of pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, feast on this season by one pitcher...

    27-9 W/L, 1.73 ERA, 27 complete games, 5 shutouts, 317 SOs in 323 innings.

    Know who it was?

    Seeing as how you bleed dodger blue I would guess Koufax, and seeing as how I like the O's it was probably the year they pulled the Brooms out the Dodgers in the WS. Jim palmer outdueld Koufax with a complete game 4 hitter to start a string of 3 straight shutouts.

    Man the Orioles used to be good. Then the Natty Bo sold the team ad they started suckin.

    I dont actually know if it was 66 but it was either 64 65 or 66. I just wanted to talk smack about how before I was born the O's were the model franchise.
