    I would totally rock a great Milenko Hockey Jersey

    Oh I didnt read the Disorders part. I dont think I have one myself and I guess I dont everybody else enough to know for sure.

    But I can see how someone that reads my posts would think I would have one. Which one do I have though?

    yikes. does it come with a free bottle of advil?

    How did the extra .5 inches work out? Did it affect manuverability? Wanted to test it out when I was a local shop in Rockville.

    After reading all the disorders, I dunno that I've really got any of them. But I'm a horrible housekeeper. Does that count? What's the opposite of OCD?

    Now Myers-Briggs that's something else. There, I am ISTJ...all the way, baby. Occasionally, a "quickie" test will have me as an ESTJ, but that's only as I've gotten older. Damn, I'm boring.

    Study hard, Topaz.

    First tennis lessons washed out. Oh well. Next week.

    My current funk at actual playing continues. Couldn't hit a damn thing yesterday except the backstop. And the top of the tape. Seven freakin' times. Still, we won. But WTF?!?

    Actually, I do know what's wrong. I'm just not willing to own up to it yet. :mad:

    We are trading a 500-point ATP event for a 250-point ATP event, which means a bit weaker draw and probably some appearance $$$ changing hands. We'll see how it turns out. At least it will still be pro tennis.

    I saw where the D.C. tournament is losing Legg Mason as a sponsor and upgrading the facilities to accommodate the women, who have been playing at College Station, right?

    Yup, last year they were at college park.

    That's a nice tennis club - they have reasonable prices too. Would have joined if they weren't an 1.5 hours away from where I live.

    Go a call from membership there and I said I would join in a second if you were in NoVA. He said a lot of the people he called said that.

    Wow on the latest ASICS; looks like someone dropped all the paint buckets on that model. Actually thinking of trying something more sedate, like these...

    wow it was small to hold just one tournament, with two events on the same week, it will be nuts. how are they going to house all them matches? its really bad playing in wash area during July/August season. its going to be hot!

    would much rather have it work serially.

    tccp is great. kinda intimidating to play there sometimes, there are alot of good players there and the umcp team practices there too. I played indoor clay there, I believe they were using hard-tru there.

    Downs,

    I still have the Babolat Pure Storm GT Plus.

    All of a sudden I have a craving for pork chops and apple sauce.

    It used to be that way and they got everything in just fine. The side courts were utilized much more for the women's matches (think of the ones that are fenced individually).

    We actually get to play DC league on those courts sometimes...pretty cool.

    I don't speak binary.

    Yes, sure, don't really care. Email sent.

    My 98d is leaded up to 12.2oz strung. Swings super easy.

    Lol. I don't even know what a rdis200 looks like. Not familiar with yonex as well as I should be.

    Today's morning agenda. Put on caps shirt. Find everyone of the Boston transplants who live or play at the club, and repeatedly ask last nights score. Payback for all the combined cheering against this lone Caps fan will be a 'witch'.

    Oh and also taking a bike ride to beach, watching 45 nationals, playing doubles, little laundry, and perhaps a beverage or two.

    I got home last night. Set up my disc golf basket and practiced some putting while I had some pork tenderloins smoking.
    Started up the Scout and took it out for the first time this year. Filled up some gas.
    Got home threw some more wood in the smoker sunk some more putts.
    Put away disc golf basket took pork loins off grill covered with foil and took a shower.
    Parents came home and were watching american Idol. I jumped on Computer.
    Came out when Idol was over Fox 45 news at 10 came on I grabbed the remote.
    Put on Hockey right when the OT was starting.
    My mom as saying something to me but I was ignoring her.

    THEN

    GOOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!

    We are winning the cup this year! I should've been on my wireless so It should have connected. I usually have it on silent so miss calls sometimes. Were you at bar with disinterested Fla fans? I think I woke my family up on the OT goal!

    If pork loins are on sale for 3 dollars a pound and it not raining I will do this.

    is that fair enough.

    I guess since the red wings got bounced I can back the Caps.

    hw -- please continue your rituals to ensure caps success. but please no more posts about smoking loins, tossing wood in the smoker, or showering. i'm pretty sure that's the plot for some adult video.

    i made a huge vat of chicken curry the other night. my house still stinks two days later. thinking bout buying the metal prison trays and opening a buffet.

    We'll see; if they are too stiff, I'll just use them for everyday shoes, since I don't have to worry about dressing for the workplace anymore. :)

    And you never know; my sore achilles tendon may be crying for stiffer shoes.

    NiteFly, what odds are you giving on the Caps winning the Cup? I may take some of that action. Bruins made them look slow quite a few times.

    Just sayin'.

    If you are at downtown Baltimore and don't mind a alittle drive. You can goto Altmans (best corn beef in town, try their dagwood (corn beef, pastrami, chop liver on rye) or Lenny's. (Although I prefer Katz's when they were still around)
    Or I love this place called Chaps off of Pulaski Hwy. Try their Big John Sandwich (tmonk's mind is going down the gutter again....) All their pit grilled meats on two pieces of bread. Avoid their fries (it's fried in day old grease). Put plenty of tiger sauce (it's a horseradish mayo mix).

    You never know until you try them thats for sure.

    In Hockey once you make the playoffs I feel you have as equal a chance as everybody to win the Cup. So after tonight that would get the Caps a 1in8 shot or 12.5%. Thats just simple math though.

    But pretty much anytime you can make a bet like this you should always take the field if said field is bigger than 2.

    Made this last night:
    [​IMG]

    Really impressed with Costco's Mesquite Spice Rub. It's really low in salt and has a good smoke taste. i just marinated it overnight. Grilled the chicken and whoa la!
    And used Guac from Costco as well. Scary, the guac's been sitting out for over 30 minutes and it's still green. Wonder what they put in there?

    btw.. i just recalled a convo with paulman about how to string.. apparently the stop lever in the front of the stringing machine is not supposed to be used for every pull.. i was complaining to paulman about it being loose.

    Do you put J.O. on your ice cream?

    I think HDG should replicate this commercial for J.O.

    I am afraid what J.O. stands for...
    Will it make me go blind if I use too much of it?

    I tried it once. But it didnt stick to ice cream and stayed on the spoon so I was left with a spoon full of J.O. at the end. It was too much JO in one bite even for me.

    Nothing to be scared of. I havent gone blind. yet.

    http://www.jospices.com/index.php

    J.O. Spice Company, Inc. was established in 1945 by J.O. (James Ozzle) Strigle and his wife Dot. J.O. was born and raised on Tangier Island, Virginia, a small island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay where everyone's livelihood depended on seafood… whether it be crabs, fish or oysters. The island's shoremen would take spices from the pantry and blend them based on recipes, which had been handed down through the centuries to cook wonderful dishes of steamed crabs, fish, oysters and clams.

    Its just a less known better tasting Old Bay.

    Im gonna try the rib rub one of these days. I gotta stop by the store on one of my off days and get another 10lb tub of spice at that time ill try a few of the different rubs they got.
