    downs -- i'm confused. i'm getting a package for you? is it breakfast? is package a euphemism for something else? is it fudge packaging because i definitely don't want that.

    don't worry bout me downs. i already don't trust no one.

    what's for lunch though? i'm starving. might have to bring something to eat on the court with sapient. maybe a sammich in one hand and pro staff chicago in the other to beat his azz gangnam style.

    I was driving home on 270 half an hour ago. I saw a person on a red sports bike who was carrying a Red/White Wilson 12 pack.
    I thought that was pretty cool.

    just finished hitting with sapient. i was leading 6-0, 5-0 40-15 when i hit an overhead and my wrist went someplace it wasn't supposed to go. so we stopped playing and called it a day.

    so does that count as a win or a forfeit on my part?

    the good part was that i got to try:

    dunlop aerogel 200 (both with squeaky handles)
    dunlop m-fil 300
    wilson pro staff 85 chicago
    prince original graphite oversize (4 stripe)
    head ti-radical midplus
    prince turbo shark (27.5 inches)
    prince hybrid shark
    prince look out it's a shark

    You clearly lost and sapient clearly won.

    I thought we covered this in detail like a year ago.

    tennismonkey defaulted out of our match today so a big W for me. with nothing but Ws under my belt, i've challenged Dats, whom holds the title of TWMAC king of courts due to downs default, to a deathmatch fitting for the 76th hunger games. dats never responded leaving me as the victor of TWMAC. that is all

    Hw,

    Fantasy football; have Brady but also Baltimore defense. Baltimore def is banged up a little. Should I stick to that match up?

    Other option: 1)Miami who plays jets at home or 2)San Diego who hosts Atlanta.
    3) start Flacco instead of Brady.

    Ryan matthews is in line up. Good? Bad? I'm 2-0 and and on top of leader board.

    Should I ask topaz same question and also ask if 'i should get involved in a land war in Asia?' ...or 'bet a Sicilian when death is on the line..'???

    So you have SD, and MIA Defenses?

    The only good thing for the Ravens is that they are at home. The are not a good road team, but are great at home.

    I would wager both QBs will probbaly be close when its all said and done. But Brady like usual has the potential to have a monster game. Flaccos only monster games come when Rice nust those littel screen passes into 50 yd touchdowns. I would start Brady every week of the season if Flacco is the only other option. Actually I would start Brady over everyone unless you had A Rodgers. But if you have Brady you dont Rogers.

    I guess if I had those three Ds I maybe go with MIA. Unless you still went with BMore that would offset any potential sticker from Brady.

    Mathhews probably isnt a bad play. Atlanta has done nothing so far to stop the run. And the Charges looked good running it against the Titans. ATL and Tennesee were about equal in run D last year. So Matthews could have him a good game. My only Concern is they cleared him last week but still sat out. He may not get many carries this week either. If you got other RBS that are doing OK myabe ride them out another week. Im gonna go out on a limb thoug and say he gets about 12-15 carries for 70 Yds and a touch. just my gut. Who are the other RBs you got?


    I dont the Jets Offense is that good, and MIA has been OK on D. I would go

    Brady
    MIA
    And give Matthews a shot

    Cans kinda scrape your vocal cords on the way down, and you sound like Clint Eastwood the next morning. Old Clint Eastwood. :)

    Hey X, how goes it? What are the grandkiddies up to ATM? No iAnything here. We're anti-Apple. Still struggling with the whole go-to-school routine.

    TWMACers, anyone headed to IKEA soon? I need a small purchase that I'm not quite willing to drive ~150mi rounders for. Will pay shipping plus tip! :)

    Foodie Alert: Served up my best version, E-V-E-R, on Chicken Piccata for our 11th Anniversary this evening. Headed to this tomorrow for brunch. :p

    And, if I can work it out....a hit with a fellow TTer beforehand. Gosh, life is grand.

    Except I need another vehicle. Purchased replacement for the totaled vehicle is a lemon. Ugh. Current option: a durned ZoomZoom5.

    I was out hitting today. first day back. it's say iam 70%. my two hander is still off. still need at least 80% of my speed in order to go to the net.

    Thanks, Man. It's not been an easy decade. Kids do that, ya know? :p But in the end, I have to think, am I better now than I was before? You bet your durned you*know*what. Love my spouse, love my kids, love my life. Lotta hard work in all those three elements but it's worth it.

    Actually a Mazda5. Sliding doors...bucket seats in the second (of three rows)...but regular gas. Same mpg as my Forester so I'm not trading off much. Wish the rear DVD-Entertainment system was part of the mix...but then again, maybe not. We don't take that many long trips and "The Rhyming Game" works well for us. Sure I can upgrade it as the kids progress in school. Dealer and me are off several thousand $$$ but I'm a good hold-out...yet a fair buyer. Capitalist to the core.

    Someday, next fall maybe, I can scoot up to the DC-Metro area for a weekday/midday hit as both of mine would be in school. Can ya'll put that on your radar? I would bring lunch or dessert (which, remember, includes triple chocolate mousse cake!)

    Nope, no couch. These:
    [​IMG]
    Full location: Bjarnum folding hooks

    I'm redoing our entry hallway with some wainscoting/beadboard below the chair rail and want these "hooks" for us to hang backpacks during the school week...but because it's a hallway, I didn't really want hooks hanging out when the "stuff" is in transit. I'd need two 3-pks, please. But no hurry and no worry if you can't do it. I'll eventually make my way up there for something bigger. Like a couch. :p

    Corrected for ya. Drove an Rx-7 back in the day.

    You're probably right. You and the rest of the sandbagging TWMACers will win some flight that'll put you in our area for Districts.

    Grandson seems to like baseball more at the moment; may be the next Bryce Harper, cuz he already has nice hand-eye coordination. Gotta get his mind right so he can be the next RF. LOL.

    FINALLY got back on the court this morning after 5 weeks in this infernal boot. Didn't do much, just practiced serves with my new Ys - EZone Xi 100 and RDiS 200 Lite. Small sample size, but I was surprised that the 200 seems to be a bit more stable on serves - accuracy, spin, etc. - than the EZone. Could be I'm just rusty. Can't say anything about groundies, volleys, overheads, etc., but hope to get in some of that this week if I can find another old person who doesn't have to work anymore. :) And if my ankle doesn't flare up again.

    Don't think I'm jumping on the iP 5 bandwagon, either, but I might upgrade to the 4S since my contract is up in October, anyway. I think I'll try to get the iOS 6, though; I hear good things about it.

    Wish I could help the gang welcome you to NOVA when you trek up for a hitting session/food fest. You sound like a cool lady. Everyone enjoy this nice fall weather.

    This week in the tennis clinic is was much better. No longer sore and some of my strokes are coming back. My overhead is still in shambles though... ugh!!!

    It's supposed to be a 3.5 / 4.0 class, but I think I'm the strongest player there overall. Miss the days of Sup's clinics where I got to practice with TWMAC's sandbaggers elite ;)

    planning to wrap my entire racquet's handle with lead tonight and some on 10/2. It's going to like a super headlight racquet.
    I am getting pissed off on my setup.

    My 2HBH is on the fritz. And it doesn't help that my one hander is going well.

    Eating cold spagetti and soup for lunch today. Had a big dinner last night, shouldn't of gotten take out at Wheaton...

    CB - Made one more tweak the the MOCA set-up. Turned off DHCP on the second actiontec. Resolved my issue where the second router was being set as the default gateway.

    99% of my xbox right now is streaming netflix. Most of the video now is in HD since the connection is faster.

    Wonder why MOCA isn't used more often seeing as a lot of houses prob have more coax though out the house.

    Wifi might be easier, but unless you live in a small apartment or get the installer to go through the trouble of putting it in the best spot (not just the easiest install spot) - you're sure to find a few dead spots.

    ppl don't use MOCA cause ppl don't know about it. Besides, not everyone wants to do any network tweaks. But for FIOS, we're kinda locked in as these Actiontec routers are the only one's supporting this.

    Gosh I want to go out and hit this week!

    Curse office fridges! I am eating a pasta popiscle!

    Also, in other news, I have started making hot sauce from my homegrown green thai chili. I just made some from chili's, garlic, vinegar. Thank goodness I made it outside. As soon as I started bottling inside the house, everyone ran upstairs. Maybe I can sell it as riot gear? I can feel my eyebrows burning off as soon as I opened the processor.

    Anyone know how I can emulify without using some chemicals? Trying not to add so much vinegar.
