    I can get you pics and specs of his racquet right now? Drakulie strung them up and has pics. Want them or maybe you can do a search?

    If I steal his glasses, they are worth way more than a week of beer.

    I'm stuck in traffic. I feel like Im back in DC! This is what you get when you ask a Fort Lauderdale local for a short cut.. next time ask a Miami local. FML![/QUOTE]

    If he got them posted I will search.

    But the glasses, would be more for you rung above the Fonz on the coolness ladder. Plus the Beers would be Natty Bo's by the 30 pack hand delivered by me in a ford F-150 short bed stepside. I figures 14 30 packs is like a weeks worth right?

    Now get those glasses or goggles or whatever they were.

    I will up the beer to a month if you can steal Chris Sabo's Glasses or goggles or whatevers.

    Still got Lou'ville, Ohio St., and Miami alive in my FF, so there's still hope in Bracket Town. GT was my other FF pick; looks like Kansas might make it from that quarter.

    You in Florida? Our weather here is more like Minn. than Fla. Bummer.

    i don't know why the government didn't shut down today. more snow than any other "storm" all winter long.

    i demoed a few sticks this weekend and the winner? donnay formula 100. it kinda plays like an APD or Pure Drive only it doesn't hurt my arm. go figure.

    what's for lunch people?

    saw ur ad selling the donnays. I heard the Formula's paint chips fast. Volkl O8's are pretty good as well and it's in the same category.

    Still need to hit with my Donnay *sigh*... Also, very tempted to get a Volkl O7 310 from the used racquet section.

    My gyro has elluded me for the past week. I should run across the street to get one.

    Most definitely plays more like the Pure Drive. Certainly not flexy but if it doesn't hurt your arm - hey why not?

    Looks like I'm playing USTA league this spring - yeah! Going to be hard to match my night owl form. There's no substitute for playing a lot.

    Oldest daughter has a stomach virus. Spent most of this morning cleaning and scrubbing. Not fun or pretty.

    Lunch was: Mongolian BBQ at a new joint they opened down the street. Went for the large bowl - just hoping I don't get hit with the stomach bug any time soon.

    Silver lining: Sloane Stephens live on Tennis chan.

    The Serena match was on earlier.

    Serena is still #1 in my book.

    Anyone else think Cibulkova has thighs like Chun Li?

    :) We actually had 4" on the deck. Of course, it was gone by noon. :evil:

    Yeah, I don't know about it. Guess they had to start somewhere and that was with the 2012 stuff. Still, it might get the USTA wonks to think about what kind of detail they could be providing.

    Our area's not so swishy. Kinda confirms much of what I already knew. I'm on the bubble.

    But still playin' 4.0...cause that's what my captains are running (and, well, USTA says I'm supposed to!).


    So sorry, Striker. Let me knock on wood. I've finally got my crew all healthy.

    *scratches head*

    They all look chunky to me. Watched Woz and Kerber...heck even Maria's lookin' a little thick below the belt.

    Well Mrs. JRS was in Richmond on business, so my day was not fun. Still Daughter #1 is feeling much better and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that no one else picks up the stomach flu. (please god, not me!!!!)

    Chunky...LOL. No, Chun Li - character from Street Fighter with huge legs. Cibu has thighs bigger than most soccer players in my opinion

    Funny you mention that. My wife is always asking why WTA players don't look more fit.

    Cant go wrong with Asics, these Gel Solution Speeds I got are pretty sweet. I gotta get a pair of the black ones.

    Back to NB. You can just look at those 1187's and tell they suck. They just seem bulky and cumbersome. I guess thats NB trying to make a barricade. Well I got news for you barricades suck.

    Get the 996's if you are going to venture into NB land again.

    They have her listed as 5ft 3in. Maybe, maybe if she wears these she comes in over 5ft:

    [​IMG]

    Come to think of it, looking at her WTA Tour photo, I'd like to see her in a pair of those..

    threw away my Barricades last night and I barely wore off 5% of the thread. shoe was really rigid. I am going to stick with my Wilson Top Spins. tt playtesters didn't really like these shoes. I love the comfort although it's not as ankle stable as my other shoes.
    I love NB's as well. I wore a pair of 996's. They were very comfy. Only complain I had was that it was not as breathable. as it was mostly made from pleather.

    I met her at the Sony a couple years back. She wasn't very famous then so no crowds. Standing there with a couple racquets looking at the scoreboard. Wearing what you would expect from Cibu for a practice session.

    I stood next to her. Said hello and good luck. She gave a smile,a hair twirl. and said "thanks and hoped I you enjoy the tournament".

    Is she short. Yes. Is she very short. Yes. Is she easy on the eyes.. Yes in a JRStriker way. Did I look as she left. I Chris_Downs accidentally looked. Did I creep away photos as she left. Heck no.

    You know Zap has got some secret creeper photos.

    Hey Zap my parents go to this place in PA to get home made sausage you should check it out. They dont have Hot Dogs. But i think by now you are propbably getting tired of hot dogs.

    The best part of all the place is in the town of Intercourse. Once you get to intercourse about another 20 minutes away is Blue Ball.

    sausages and anime girls. this is what the twmac has become.

    downs i'm still in demo mode but will let you know if i settle down with the formula 100's.

    barricade V's were great shoes. barricade 6's have been mostly crap for me but they won't die or degrade so i still have mine. i wanna get some barricade 7's. i wanna at least try the asics but i can't get over how ugly as shiz they look

    did anyone eat anything amazing for lunch?

    kobayashi is not competing in that coney island hotdog eating comp because of the **** contract. to compete, he will be forced to only compete in which ever their eating league sanctioned competitions. he has destroyed joey chestnut in the past.

    now this is prob more zaps' type

    I think this is the chic that manages the Burger King on Andrews AFB.

    She can pound some wieners.

    And so can this chic.

    Thinking Cold Cut Sub downstairs.

    btw, anyone has a solar panel? I am planning to install a small one on my deck (~50W). It's mainly to power some lights I want on the entire night. Any experiences?

    Tennismonkey,

    Spaghetti and meatballs is for lunch.

    I cannot play tonight because its too far, I am out of practice and its way too cold.. even indoors for me. Thanks.

    Coolblue,

    Ditching the barricades and now going solar? You may be okay in my book ...
