    He played with the Kneissl White Star frames, I think. When he got with Adidas, they first pj'd the frames and then later Adidas bought Kneissl's mold to make them for Lendl.

    The spring "Intellilift" system does look interseting.

    The arms on the bench that move over the body to help with the liftoff is a good idea as well.

    But that C.O.D machine looks like it would be alot of fun.

    Im not sure what your problem was. That 15-20 minutes I blasted with that Mizuno was fun.

    I remeber those Yonex ones as well. I didnt hit with to well. But the 90's are beyond my skill set.

    I kind of want to black out my Dunlops a la James Blake (cause his racquets are black, not because he is)

    Don't think a shaved head and headband would be your look TC... oh you mean the rackets....

    Hate monday finals. I missed the Murray / Djoker match and my DVR didn't get it either. Plus I don't have Tennis Channel, so no replay there. Hoping they put it on ESPN online.

    BTW - Anyone ever take a RJ Tennis clinic at 4 seasons?

    Good stuff.

    Bench would be even better if you could get the arms to come back when you want to rack the weight.

    COD looks interesting, but you could probably get a similar effect using a medicine ball or a weight vest - cost less if you don't have one in your gym / can't afford the COD machine.

    All 8-star hotels should just get rid of icemakers altogether and just fill their lobbies with giant silent freezers, so guests can grab their complimentary hammers from the wall and hammer the giant rocks of ice.

    for M right now i got black magic in 1, black hex in 2, and going to trysomething else tomorrow.

    in the past i have used everything from zo verve (the best) to pro hurricane (the worst) and everything in between

    depends on what you want from your strings?
    ogsm usually works pretty well as a cross with most strings. I treat it mostly as a filler. But it doesn'tlast that long though, especially if you use a textured poly as the M.

    Sup is moving from the oasis in the hood.

    Place purchased is a little more north, next to two golf courses, a casino (score), the beach ...an oh yeah rows of tennis courts and four handball walls. Gained much needed space in this place. Now I can drunk wii without hitting something.

    So my question is off tennis base. Golf! Who plays it? Who can recommend clubs to someone starting off but doesn't want to look like Zapvors tennis attire and/or needs assistance on volleys like sapmeister.

    Hw, I'll see if they have disc golf. Lol.

    Sup 'who is practicing his happy gilmore' golf swing.

    Sup,

    If you are getting into Golf you may want to avoid Taylor Made stuff. Seeing as to how they are owned by Adidas.

    If you want be cool and have good clubs not many will know about you can find some Yonex clubs. Mickelson used to use Yonex clubs until 2000.

    Callaway is #1 as far as sales. My friend Paul says most of the pros are using clubs that are cast by Mizuno and swears by his Mizuno's.

    If I were starting to get back into it I would try to get Yonex if they were around. Or I would go with Cobra golf. Cobra is owned by Puma so its like a revers stickin it to Adidas becuase Puma is like Adidas brothers company.

    Wilson makes good clubs as well.

    downs -- we lost to them 1-2. we defaulted a court too which didn't help. how did your team do last night?

    if you guys won -- they need to win tomorrow night versus us again AND they need to win have more individual wins than you guys. it's gonna be close.

    i'm woefully out of practice and i am not available to play tomorrow night. this probably helps you guys. me in the lineup is usually a loss.

    Ha, no. I would cut my feet off before I wore Adidas shoes.

    I would wear Adidas socks with Nike shoes though, just to have a psychological advantage while playing against Sup.

    Is that the equivalent of you seeing someone wear jeans with sandals. ...-and proceed to call themselves fashionable?

    I yet to see that image without thinking of Jrk. Then again when I see a knife fight on tv and they cut their hand, I want guacamole (san Jrk blood).

    I need a drink.

    Hw,

    Should I start Ryan Matthews rb this week?

    I'm selling my cj. Should I get a scout?

    If Obama showed up in your office, would you bear hug him ala that Florida pizza place owner, or would the secret service take you down beforehand?

    Look left. Look right. Look down. Look up. Look behind you. How many Asians did you spot? Ive seen two all week. Wtf. Strange how this are is vacant of Asians, hence good Asian food.

    Yes. I'm thankful that I never got into a fight with a guy wearing flip flops and jeans. I would be too busy looking at his hairy toes and thinking to myself "what was this guy thinking" while he pummels me.

    *yawn*

    what's for breakfast and lunch? anybody know what the heck durian cake is?

    also i nominate paulman for sandbaggiest 4.0 east of the mississippi. he's like auzzie except instead of ankle braces, he's got vibram five fingers. and instead of super flexy donnays, he uses super flexy toms machine.

    anybody been to hot n juicy in DC? seafood joint with a supposedly awesome spicy crawfish.

    I believe it's a light, not too sweet VN cake with durian flavored icing?

    lol! Sandbaggiest? Pot calling the kettle black any? haha It was great to come out and had fun hitting yesterday. Thai food and Singha beers were a good way to cap the evening! Also, wife enjoyed the drunken noodles - thanks!

    I love my V5Fs! And kinda surprised to hear my 1st Gen Toms Machine is that much more flexy than your old EXO Tour sticks...

    ok so ive quit playing horrible tennis to concentrate on my even horriblier basketball.
    fyi, have yall been to finish line dotz to the kom ?
    dayuumm it is hard not to buy NIKEs there cuz so many pairz are
    on clearance from 109bucks to 42-69... yo yo yo ill take 2 perrrr

    We up in F1N1SHL1NE I'm looking like I need those
    ten in a half and if you got em give me two of those
    I can tell she never seen Murphy Lee before
    cause shes just standing there as if I'm shooting free throws
    I said excuse me miss I only wanna buy shoes
    she said I love you Murph especially in the white in blue
    I said the white in blue sound nice make it twice


    anywayz... i be jumpin only 2 inches but ill be lookin fly in my purple hyperkrunkz

    can't believe u foolz still be playin that lame game with the net and ur silly little rackets. dance around in ur skirtz and ur pretty lil service motions. dayumm yall, when im dunkin on them 7ft rims i be thinkin bout monkey and downs swingin them perty lookin backhands. when i pumpfake, pick and roll, to the hoop for the hesitation headfake to dirknowitski fade-away i be thinkin bout topaz concentratin so hard to try to stick her volley. while sups slidin on that clay pretendin to be pete rose slidin into 1st base i be skyin to grab the pill way above the rim. then i make the outlet pass but dont think im sleepin. while ur watchin the point guard dribble between his legs im runnin up the middle like traktor trailer to complete the phi slamma jamma.
    oh but just when u think im old and cant jump.. dont forget i learned from clyde the glide and yes i do know the FINGER ROLL!
    wooooo.

    p.s. - i scored 2 points in the last game. woot i did accidentally crack some doods skull with my boney elbow though. teach him to come into the lane against mr.hackashaq

    sigh... soon my knees will only allow slow walks around the block with a baby stroller. even that might require ibuprofen/glucosamine IV. fark.
    sometimes it is hard to bend down to pick up the dogs p00p. :shock:
    i might not be drinkin enough beer though. maybe that will fix it.

    i should post video of my sweet sweet ball handling skills. 1 time through the legs... stumble.. bounce ball off foot.. and out of bounds. RESPECT!

    p.s. - dont forget to look for COUPON CODE for the joint too... u buy a couple pair of clearance kicks for 45 bucks each and you can get 20 bucks off. dayng dats like free shoes sorta

    Dats, when I used to ball Finish Line was the place to get Nikes and basketball shorts. Can't beat the selection and prices are great too.

    Chi-town style dog. Man I wish. It's diet shakes for lunch for me. Ugh...

    One bright spot - got some tennis lined up for Sunday! Signed up for a tennis clinic at 4 seasons. Time to dust off the sticks.... and find where I put my tennis shoes.

    i've been playing with a neighbor who is very socially awkward and he tries to make up for it by being over the top bossy/agressive.
    he walks on the court with his brand new nikes (that i saw he puts shoe trees in so they dont get creased) and proceeds to yell very loudly WHOS GOT NEXT?
    usually people just ignore him cuz there will be NOBODY waiting to play.
    then he proceeds to do a variety of awkward looking stretches and then shoots a few airballs. the guy cant even make a layup unguarded.. usually he smashes it into the corner of where the rim meets the backboard and it comes back and hits him in the head. usually the guys that just finished playing just walk to their cars and go home at that point.
    meanwhile i am just going out to practice a few shots and he is always grumbling about not getting a good game going.
    the 1st time i went to play with this doofus, i prevented him from getting punched in the back of the head after the doofus had started a fight with a member of a vietnamese gang we were playing. he didnt realize that if you start sheet with 1 member of viet gang, you mess with all of the gang. but i stupidly pushed the suckerpuncher dood out of the way and then everybody held people back and somehow it ended things.
    then the very next time i go to play with doofus he gets mad at me for grazing his finger tips in a lame game of 21 and he tries to trip me when i am running after his airball.
    now i realize that the vietnamese guys were right and this guy needs a good azzkicking. and the doofus keeps calling me to shoot more hoops.
    oh yah and the last time we played 2on2 and this guy who SUX so bad was ordering me around telling me to play zone which was effin dumb but he kept telling me to take smart shots and to step up my D etc.. non stop.
    he couldn't guard his man at all and doesnt realize that he just needs to stay between his man and the basket. anyway this guy is such a GOOBER on the court. he has no ideas wut the rules are but is a "know it all" so he doesn't realize everyone thinks hes a moron. AYYYYYYY.
    maybe tennis aint so bad.
    as soon as i get in shape again, im ditchin this fool and finding some good full court games. i think by JRK and the tarpits has got to have some decent games. gotta find lights too around here for when stinky winter sets in.

    p.s. - CUTLER SUX! wut a loooooozer

    Dats - I play with a few friends at Quincy Park in Clarendon sometimes. There are a few knuckleheads that talk **** to maintain their "street" image which is laughable because it's Clarendon. There are good games though.
