    You sure? Those two Sap questions above were posed and subsequently ignored before we started asking about all the particulars. It wasn't until after PP eloquently broke down EVERY SCENARIO, that Sap posted the Cliff Notes for the meet.

    Zap be proud; not everyone can be such a naturally slippery politician!! :shock:

    I think he is more of the Jerry Sandusky type.

    lol...thats kind of what i mean. sappy's posts are usually in jest. so the fact that he provided the cliff notes correctly. but anyways i apologize if i wasnt clear....i thought my posts were pretty clear. PP must be rubbing off on me or something. now the important stuff. what about food!

    Thanks for the narrative, PeePee. And, thanks Sappy for the Cliffnotes version.

    At this point, it seems as though everyone understands what to do! (except for the food issue).

    This is just my opinion, but I think it's best if we go somewhere to eat instead of bringing food. It's kind of late (?) now to organize who needs to buy what. However, if anyone of you is brave enough to organize it, I'd be willing to chip in.

    P.S. PurePrestige is like a mix of Jerry Sandusky and Anthony Weiner. I kid! He's more like the lovechild of Herman Cain and Bill Clinton.

    Omg that Sandusky dude among other obvious things, badly needs some of zap's skill! Who the hell thinks going on an interview to claim their innocence from pedophile charges by admitting to taking showers with 10 year old boys?!?? WTF?!?!! Lol

    Uhm, I am using TW as a forum to publicly deny these allegations...I did not grope those photos. Furthermore, just because I purchased both hot dogs and shampoo in one purchase is circumstantial at best! It's costco people, how can you not with the bulk prices on kosher beef hot dogs and that aussie shampoo with awapuhi...right?...guys?...not ok???

    Tennismonkey seems to know an awful lot about me some how haha...but it is true that I work in the D.C. area...very D.C...the U.S. Capitol, maybe you've heard of it TWMAC? :p
    If you happen to be watching CSPAN-2 just look out for the sasquatch roaming the senate floor...it's difficult for photos or videos to pick me up however.

    Shcmad and I are ready to accept all challengers in doubles.
    Our doubles team name you ask?
    Team Sasquatch and Pocket-Squatch.

    It's good to be back TWMAC, it'll be good to see everyone again and to meet the new people that I will tolerate at best.

    I would try to get someone to cover my shift but I'm not sure when to ask them cover for! Ha! Will do my best to stop before/after if I can. Don't have my Sunday schedule yet.

    Super cool pict, Sap. Weather is variable; next couple of days, highs in the 50s, lows in the 30s. Weekend, highs in the 70s, lows in the 50s. Typical Memphis weather this time of year.
    Come on down.

    Dinner at the Rendevouz optional.

    Just looking at my schedule it looks like my birthday is on Wed, and Im off that friday. So I would say on the morning of April 13th I will start the trek. Might even take off on the 12th and play a couple rounds of disc golf on the way.

    But thats my plan homie April 13th will begin 100 year old grease burger weekend.

    Well Since I got the grease burger trip figured out.

    I gotta get the tennis deal on Sunday figured out.

    Is anyone gonna get thier early? Is anyone planing on meeting somewhere else then meeting Zap at 230 at the place?

    If anyone wants to meet somehwere early I can do that and skip disc golf.

    Im not gonna go to rock creek early and pay court fee to later pay more court fee though.

    Just let me knwo dudes.

    Time for an installment of Good Sappy, Bad Sappy.

    Good Sappy: I like your line regarding McDonalds. seems legit.

    Bad Sappy: TWMAC can't use ppl to shorten people. I just realized that for the past week I have been confused by people's verb tenses when referring to ppl...ppl being PrestigeProLover...hahaha

    So I'm working 8-5 Sunday. If I'm not too wiped I'll head over afterward. Might have a 'playtest' raquet by then too.

    If things are wrapped up by then though...someone post or text me so I don't waste a trip ok?

    Way better flex though! Almost like a Pure Storm Team flex in an Aero Cortex weight and mold? Does it have that cheesy Cortex piece on the throat too? Sounds kinda interesting, especially for Downs!
