lol nicely done cb!
Can't be sure about Monday but I'll see what I can do...I'll ping your old acquaintance, D.C., to see if he can come out as well...
Ok kids, other IG is strung full poly now. Ready to go anytime. Bring it!
Looks like a lot of folks free on Monday. we should be thinking bout Vets and not Nets, Service Members and not Service Winners. Tennismonkey in 2016.
I am down for Monday. Lets do this twmac! okay somebody pick a time and place.
this has really good potential. meet up monday!
dats you are going down.
was thinking about the blue courts off of Nelson Street Rt 28 exit off of 270. (maybe exit 6?) They have 4 pretty recently resurfaced courts there. Would mid morning be okay for everyone?
i heard that maxim store is closing-is it true???
I hear there's an opening at CIA, if you like Langley and covert affairs.
yep. as true as me havi a three plate min rule at the indian buffet place.
anniunced a month ago, everything is 20% off. of cours only thing left there is some naturally kimchi (was fresh awhile ago) on the fresh produce aisle and half a lime in the fridge.
oh no whens the last day
within a couple of weeks.
i might go on mon!
so where did we decide??
i think we decided arlington... yup.. pretty sure arlington. VIRGINIA mofos! :twisted:
so excited! can't wait to see everybody... in ARLINGTON! woot
i tried out the IGs vs BLXPROs today. looks like i probably prefer the IG with full poly but it did hurt my wrist a little bit. BlackCode17 is pretty harsh... i guess i gotta try something a little softer or go to 18g or try Kirchbaum Black Shark 17?
i don't like soft polys so i need the softest of a firm poly. ay yi yi
How's the hangover Downs?
Played two hours of singles and thought I was going to vomit haha I'm good now!
6 month old daughter just caught the cold.
got reamed by wife about clothes during today's park visit.. :'(
let me know what the consciences is. I can do between 10am to 1pm.
may need to bring munchkin to see the doc.
Mon 10am works for me. Nelson st courts.
enjoy the mini meet! i'm out...some of us have to work unfortunately...
i might show up at 11. if i dont sleep in
Haven't checked back in a while... If tomorrow happens, I'd have to do it in virginia.
So far it is me, CB, and wookie at 10 am in moco. Anyone who can come out are welcome to join us.
Auzzie - if you wanna try later this week in nova im down too.
Auzzie, I can hit Monday in va! Let's do it!
yep 10am at moco Nelson str blue courts.
for the directionally or "other side of American legion bridge impaired," :
u going to make it zap? tmonk and wookie will unleash their unfearful wife fury on me. need ur help!
Back in the day I used to buy duck in Seven Corners. Always fresh, never frozen, reasonably priced, and no gunshot wounds. Those Vietnamese kids roaming around the nearby NoVA ponds and lakes sure do have a way with slingshots. Fresh, local, cage-free, environmentally safe…:lol:
Dats, shoot me a msg, let's try to work something out
will try to make it....jrs is coming?
zap, do u have any donnays handy? wink wink nudge nudge.
lol maybe. why cant you guys go later. i want sleep
Lol that's a good one Downs! Next up: pigs will be flying n hell freezing over! Haha
haha...we don't get today off...in a meeting now!
what's for lunch people? vietnamese sandwiches?
Been perfecting my WasSub? inspired bulgogi cheesesteak with kim chi sammich. They'll be happy I won't be starting up a food truck!!! haha
make the sammich truck...park it outside my house...thank you!
Nice playing last night Downs...way to hold your partner together!
thanks -- she was NOT into the match mentally...haha - it's tough to enjoy beating friends in a usta match...you guys had a close battle on your court too!
Not just friends, but your *other* mixed partner!
I can't believe we actually lined it up the way we did!
Yeah, definitely a tough match, but we were always a step behind it felt. B played *much* better than last time, too...deceptively quick hands at net. I just wanted 15 more minutes!!! UGH!
yeah...i remember the last match - i felt like he was hitting the back curtain every other point...like he was too amped up! haha, he was under control last night...i was the one hitting wild! haha...ugh, we should've won easily...up 5-1 and then we lost that set...haha -- oops!
You just wanted to play more, right?
He had flashes of wildness, but he served much better, especially his second serve, and generally played smart strategy. Did your captain give him a talking to after the first match??? hahah!
he did talk to him, after he saw a bunch of nova losses in a row!
I guess what gets it done in Lynchburg doesn't get it done in NOVA??? He made the necessary adjustments...let's just put it that way!
He's a super nice guy...we had a nice match. We are all even now at 1-1. Battle Royale at the final of districts????
Good hit with TM, CB, and Zap today MoCo. Haven't played outdoors in forever, forgot that wind can be a factor in tennis - LOL.
So sore - Wife thought it was a good idea to do a HIIT class at the gym before my tennis boot camp clinic. Legs are tired.
unless you get taken out by "team america" -- haha...it could happen!
It could happen to Bouncer's Club too....you could get *bounced*!!!
it was awesome! i finally got to see cb in action! and catch up with striker, who would up the pace when i am not expecting it. of course i show up like 5hrs late and everyone had to go
also i learned the MAC is about to transition from tennis to babysitting industry
thanks zap, jrs, tmonk for coming out to hit.
have to find a way to chop like tmonk's slice. if he can find a way to put it in a box, he will make kitchenaid go out of business. thx for the tips again. habits are hard to break.
wookie's forehand is money,
zap needs a louder alarm clock... but am so happy he showed up! u got an awesome game, I like ur 2hbh.
hahaha i need like 10 alarm clocks. i set it for 9;30, snoozed for an entire hour. your Pk was a brick!
by the way monkey has a good idea for the next meet.
is the great idea finding some tennis courts next to a buffet restaurant?
Invite Wozinaki to play tennis with us?
or my fav:
having Wozinaki to play tennis next to a indian buffet restaurant?
but knowing tmonk, he'll pick something that is boring and makes sense like:
finding a tennis court with a big playground next door so our kids can run around while we hit... BOOOORRRING....
don't poo poo my ideas CB. fun hit yesterday gentlemen. i am not sure what i was more suprised by:
a -- CB has more racquets (3) than i do (2).
b -- wookie isn't pushing 3 bills and he ditched his civic si habla espanol even though it only had 200,000 miles and he could've easily pushed another 800,000 miles before it died.
c -- zap actually showed up at the time he said he was going to show up. no seriously. he showed up. i checked his ID too.
what's for lunch people?
lunch is chicken and rice. Actually my place actually has a single court and a playground right next to it. Floor actually has cushiony mulch. It's literally 30 steps from my place.
We can hit there next time. Still then, I'll probably find a way to be late as well. =)
you have courts 30 steps from your front door? you need a tennis ball machine and thermal underwear. then you can stay sharp all winter long.
yeah and thick gloves... fingers freeze first!
