    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 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

    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 safeā€¦:lol:

    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! :)

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
