    Slept without moving much holding a sick kiddo all night. Feels like I've been hit in the back with an Isner serve. Ouch!!!

    All I have to say is TGIF, I'm so beat.

    Using ntrp levels...what was it?

    Was it like the owner self described as 5.0, then people realized it was all a double and eventually the menu had to regulate. so it got bumped Down to 4.5. Is that temporary as the meal gets worse eating results to eventually get down to 4.0?

    All the time patrons just remember the 5.0 rating which was owner rated.

    Do tell tennis monkey?

    it was just panda express. it's okay chinese food cooked by a lot of spanish speaking folks but with an asian guy or girl in the front taking the order. i don't think panda rates their food on the NTRP scale.

    where are u at? if ur home, hop across town and get fried fish at horace. when it is fresh, not bad. otherwise, u can use as a floatation device. but ur right, hit the right day, oil used in frying becomes pretty bad. I guess that's why it's so tasty.

    HW, want lighter TFs ~12 oz vs your 14 oz bats? The new 315s are supposedly using your 325 molds & are standard 27 in frames...

    Found some folks playing on a meetup site this morning. Went down to the courts at Howard University and left with a torn calf muscle, looks like I'll be out of the game for a while :-(

    Ouch! Oh no! Are you sure that is what it is? (hoping for something maybe not quite as bad!)

    We had a girl in my class break her toe one semester, and they wouldn't let her stay in clinical. Be careful!!!

    Woowww, that's crazy. I guess I'm lucky to be in the Army's program, at least I know I won't be going anywhere. I'm 99% sure it's a tear, heard a nice pop preceding my crumble to the floor, calf got tight and was (still) unable to dorsiflex.

    finally tried chinto's burrito today. lot of food for 8 bucks. the chips were freshly fried and the sauces were interesting. i'm digging the spanish green sauce + wasabi sauce mix. beef was flavorful. i see how they are mex asian fusion using some of the asian prep and ingrediants. will visit again.

    My 55+ 4.0 team won today, taking all 3 courts, including my court (#2). First 4.0 match I've won since playing with my young buddy in Reston Tournament 3 years ago. Feels good. (We won 2&1).

    Was readin the tennis magazine and they did look promising. If I hadnt just bought two Rd-ti 80's I would probably have copped the 315 18x20 joints. Although Im curious with the Silicones handles and everything to give them a shot. If I was playing alot I'd be all over them though.

    I guess its the testerone bought i thought that said boobs

    CB -- what did "punted a ball" turn into?

    xisbum -- congrats on your victory! a 6-2, 6-1 win is pretty solid. maybe you should stop sandbagging and play 4.5 or open? or join mcenroe on the masters tour.

    what's for lunch people?
