Yep, just need to leave at 12:30pm. I have a 1pm.
It's still at 11am, right?
Sure, I'm still game if everyone is too.
Slowly back away from the keyboard sappy. A litter box facial is not on my list of things I like.
Just called them up, opens at 11am and $9/lunch buffet.
I better watch out if tmonk goes, it's not the big ppl I fear at the buffet. It's always the skinny ones that out eats everyone.
I might be a little late. Got sucked into a 10 am meeting.
Geez, took my demos back in court today. IG speed still hittin nice but my ol rdis200 is.back in the running. IG speed swings easier which helps in a lot of places on the court but rdis200 feels so plush and solid. A bit harder to serve with due to my poor technique but this thing is a real Cadillac. I can't wrist balls over the net but when I use good technique it has font spin power and decent control. Igspeed is crisper almost boardy but the results are usually good.
If I could serve a little better with rdis200 id prolly end the search cuz I still got 3 of them. But I guess I always had problems with it and that's why I switched.
I shoulda demoed donnay pro one 18x20 too.darn
Is everybody still eating?
I just made giant oj,yogurt,& banana smoothie. Either I was starving or it was the best.smoothie ever. L8rs!
Good description of how I remember those 200s. I'd say the Pro One is too demanding. Just go with the Speeds and enjoy the consistent response already! Plus who doesn't love a black and white pj!
Yo Auz, if I run into a pile of $$$ ill get the IG speeds but til then I sorta sux with all racquets so it don't matter which one I use.
You tried the Pro One? they look about as close to an h22 or pt57a as I can afford. thought the IG prestige no would work but it feels kind of cheap and not solid enough. dunno. going to hit with my dad now so maybe that will help me decide. L8rs doood
just got my ag 100s. match at 7am. wish me luck
good luck zapvor.
bought two donnay x-dual silvers off the forums. getting rid of my prince exo3 tour team and bag too. plus i traded my m-fil 300's to zappy. i'm wheeling and dealing.
happy birthday to auzzie.
downs i'm sorta between sticks at the moment. nothing really sticking to me cuz i'm teflon.
been swamped at work the past week or so. what's for lunch peoples?
you're alive! what frame will get the final rose from you? you should have a tv show...
monkey you gotta let me try the silvers! its dinner time also
is this a sign from the tennis gods?
although he's just using a djokovic stick. the head shape and thickness and stringing pattern is totally different from a regular speed. bah. i hate paintjobs.
let me know how the ag100's play. Is it really low powered?
Wishing you luck! It's cold outside!
Zap: What happened to that self imposed rule about not playing below 55 degrees?
One day I will purchase a huge pound of Thai shrimp and grill it with garlic on a pan of cast iron.
what's for lunch people?
I think a couple of us will be at Mayur.
Hey, how do I know who is who? How do I know who Sap is when I see him? Only met JRStriker.
sap will be the guy at the buffet...sorry to blow your cover...
TM, are you doing any leagues now?
Haha! I'll be at the buffet too, Downs!!
Of the peeps coming out today to Mayur, I've met all but you CB. Both Sap and I are similarly sized (big boned - thanks TM) Asians there. I'll be wearing a dark maroon polo and blue jeans.
good to know. I am the other big bone asian in a purple polo and khaki's.
TM is playing mixed! HAHAHAHAHA!
I just ate breakfast.
Sorry I had to mcbail on kabob. Got pulled another meeting. Ugh.
BTW that MoCo Tennis plex looks sweet. Need something like that out in NoVA.
That's too bad JRs...CB, Sappy, and myself made up for your planned portions though...no need to thank us! :twisted:
Paulman and Sap: Thanks for having lunch with me today! Great to know 2 more faces in TWMac.
we should stop talking about work so much and more about tennis during lunch.
But that's the only time we do any work...errrrr talk about work! haha
Good meeting up with you too CB!
You guys met up for lunch and didnt tell me!?! what the fark?!
I been busier than a one legged monkey in a three legged potato sack race in the special olympics. Hope y'all had fun and didnt embarass the twmac name.
Who ate above their paygrade?
lolz! not our fault you didn't wanna join us! haha
embarass twmac name? uh you might be a bit late for that - by a few years at least.
all of us???
TWMAC indian buffet day. never forget
anyone playing too much tennis? i'm tired...
I'm already tired but only played tennis once this week...haha
LOL! Man I'm starving. Let me know when you go next time.
ooh somebody talked about work. im writing that lunch off on my taxes!
I vote for Kabob Palace! I think the only person that went besides me is Sap. But he went there during Ramadan and expected a quiet place to eat.
Go Natinals! Extra sweet cuz my daughter is a Cardinals' fan, and we Dodgers dislike Cardinals very much.
Repeat after me...
my wrist is feeling better today... all of a sudden i can swing any racquet and the SW don't feel like 450. weird. of course that means 6 months of ice age temperatures.
ima gonna demo that donnay pro one 18x20 though. that jeeyunkz looks saweeeet to me.
man, i wish i just kept the 100 racquets i used to have.
geez, i used to serve 130mph with a head flexpoint radical tour.
that thing was MONEY! why did i sell it? dang
oh well. i guess there are still some good racquets out there.
p.s. - how long before RG3 is RIP? watching him get crushed adds another level
of excitement to Washington Natives games. that and watching field goals go wide right!
Good Friday AM! What's for lunch?
I am in the mood for some tacos today.
I'm an A's fan and and dislike the Dodgers, especially after game 1 of the '88 World Series. :cry:
I guess I can root for the Nats now.
Ah, the Kirk Gibson miracle, AKA the Best Baseball Call Ever ("I can't believe what I just saw." by Jack Buck). The As I can tolerate. I kinda liked those Charley O. Finley teams of the early 70s - Catfish Hunter, Vida Blue, Gene Tenace, Rollie Fingers, Reggie Jackson, et al. The team Dodgers' fans hate above all others is, of course, the Giants. I would have to pull for the Cardinals if they get through the Nats.
I really would love to see a Nats-Orioles series; that would be fun, right, Hollywood?
^^--- insert 4 paragraph HW rant about the Ripken brothers!
go NATS! hope they crush the yankees to win it all! :twisted:
How in the he!! did they let that one get away? Un-freakin'-believable. Now I gotta be a - gulp - Cardinals fan for the NLCS. Dang.
Strasburg woulda shut them out. sigh.... Cards didn't even have Pujols.. gimme a break. I'm done with baseball... need hockey to start again but it might not happen!
gee, even after watching fast and furious (toyko drift) 50x, I can still watch it from start till finish..
gotta borrow someone else's car to learn how to drift..
whats the 2.0T in your avatar?
oh by the way 7AM matches suck. i think i am actually tennis-ed out!
haha youd love it. it came with like 16305.54oz of lead i had to spend 30min prying off slowly to save the paint. i didnt even string them up yet. you know its sad when you buy a racket and dont even string it up to hit with
it was freezing at 7am, barely light. but i managed. i guess i broke my rule
tennis-ed out? what does that even mean?
what's for lunch people? i need to continue my healthy eating...no buffets for me...
nothing good for lunch. but i've been eating cup cakes and macarons from this place pretty regularity as it's only ~1 miles from where i live and on thumbers walk home. i'm pretty sure it has contributed at least 3 lbs to my weight.
