    Most definitely the dark chocolates are the way to go. The lighter and milk chocolates are way too sweet.

    Try super-dark chocolate (80%+) with vintage port. This is a real taste treat. Also goes well with red wine, preferable a rich, dark wine like Australian Shiraz or a Cotes du Rhone.

    Downs,

    Talk to Geoff on the boards. He has a company like Bosworth,Priority 1 ...etc. He could help you. Tell him I sent you and that you are from the twmac and he'll hook you up. Molds, racquet customization, ... etc...

    Also. You owe me a beer. I'll see you soon.

    Scotch! I'm in... what are we doing again? Oh yeah.. hacksaw... nice.. Down's you and paulman are first. After some shots to spell our name. Vowels are doubles.

    Why cut it down? Seriously. A 1/2 inch will give you an edge? Are you looking for swingspeed? Or are you yearning for a dora the explorer junior racquet.

    I don't get the hackdown.

    p.s. Downs. I'm selling both my pure storm tour GT plus.

    Speaking of dark chocolate and chili - I've got to try a Mayan Chili-Chocolate latte at Tynan one day. Sounds good.

    Diablo 3.... I'm sort of meh..... Playing through Mass Effect 3 right now.

    What's for lunch? Thinking Pizza at Harris Teeter, it's surprisingly good.

    sup, playing tennis with you have always been difficult. i believe you came in to dc 1ce or 2ice but it has been drive 1hr to reston since. how it's fly to Fl. and i can foresee a flight to central or south americas in the near future. this is becoming an expensive hit.

    gosh today's an excellent day to hit. Unfortunately, I promised my kid pork chops and onion tonight for dinner.

    I can use tmonk's laser precision groundstrokes to hit right to me so I won't injure my ankle more. Unfortunately, he'll use the exact same laser precision groundstrokes to take me out. So I better skip until my ankle feels better.

    First: You are more than welcome to visit South Florida. We have barely no asians. The one who occasionaly plays at the club has recognized that he is a "butt" of drinking game joke. He gets big cheers at the club bar because they know I will probably buy the bar a drink. Thankfully he is the only one we've seen. If you come down, the advantage is yours on the clay or hard courts.

    Second:Um. You must of put too much hot sauce in your food today.

    Hitting with me was easy. I tended to drive to meet everyone. Endor was usually too far for everyone!

    I recall driving to Howard Univ. to even give you a lesson for free (well blue moon was accepted).Taliban courts. Wakefield. Were you there when I set up the Legg Mason hit indoor? I remember driving to DC for sushi as well. I remember only driving to you to hit with you and not vice versa. Bamm.. yeah I went there.

    You came to Reston (once). Only once johnny dangerously and not only did you have a blast at the tennis meet I put together. You ate you weight in BBQ, Tacos..

    i already have 2 of them...but thanks! maybe you should chop yours up too? what are you hitting with? cutting it down, to hopefully make a more maneuverable version of the 27" pure storm tour....

    scotch + cutting racquets = dora the explorer frame?

    You may recognizer her from the movies Inception or Contagion.

    Marion Cotillard. Oh la la

    She is no Claire Forlani, who supposedly has been seen on the courts of Endor.

    mmm forlani. still don't see why she never made it as a big star. maybe she was a terrible actress and i just didn't notice. for nearly 40 she's holding up quite nicely.

    To help you Downs... probably less.. I am willing to improve your Scotch Whiskey knowledge as well as mine.

    Here is a list of the top candidates.

    http://www.rankopedia.com/Best-Scottish-Whisky-(Scotch-Whiskey)/Step1/12335/.htm

    All are welcome. Find a place to have a taste and report back. Or at least tell us what you can remember, or perhaps what the drunk tank looks like in your neck of the woods.

    Ranks #1

    i'm not a scotch drinker but my dad is an afficienado and i've been buying him scotch all my life. a blended scotch whiskey is not gonna make any top 10 list. i know he loves his glenlivet 18 and talisker 18. any older and they start getting pricey.

    i think the germans told the russians that they'll see them tomorrow and plowed right though poland to arrive at.. tomorrow.

    not saying topaz's team is poland or anything.

    Dang it. They are 3/8s?

    Can I send them via carier pigeon? Will you post immediately that you did not receive them the next day? Not pay. Get racquet. Get busted. Pay. Then adore Michael Jordan. Michael Jackson. I don't know. I need Scotch Whiskey.

    P.S. When Ana Ivanovic talks she sounds so nervous. That little tremble in her voice. I'm listening to her now.

    Alright Almagro vs Berdych! I'm rooting for Nicholas!
