irad -- are you healed up?
anyone else walking wounded?
other then needing to loose 100 lbs. I think i am okay. I will email u next week.
Almost had that happen to me yesterday on the deck. I had a partial frozen propane tank and when I started the grill for the first time, a fire ball shot up!
Good news is that when I play poker, I have a better pokerface, since I have no eyebrows for ppl to tell now.
Uncle Leo.. why the hostility?! This will go in your charts <seinfeld reference>
I peeked at yours the other day. It says you are 'difficult'...
TM, you got mail. Let me know about the mini-meet.
DOCTOR: Well that was a long time ago. How about if I just erase it. Now, about that rash…
ELAINE: But it was in pen. You fake erased.
DOCTOR: All right, Miss Benes. This doesn’t look to serious. You’ll be fine.
ELAINE: What are you writing? Doctor?
Like in laundry?
Team capt. said it was too cold to hit today. Said he's been tired of standing in the cold while coaching the TJ Tennis team.
Going through tennis withdraw. Help!
Guys, on location, Lewinsville is only 13 minutes away from Plaka grill.
Let's make Lewinsville the #1 choice and keep cunningham as a back up.
Date: Sat 4/6/2013
lewinsville park (only 13 mins from Plaka Grill)
*Let me know if there are any changes
Will the temp be over 64?
Will there be a palm tree within viewing distance?
Will I be able to jump in the ocean in less than 15 minutes after I stop playing?
Will I become an adidas fan?
"If you ***** us do we not bleed? So I picked!" <seinfeld reference>
I predict a 50% mcbail rate for that mini-meet.
Higher mcbail rate - if you would agree to join us JRK...haha
No posting today TWMAC?
On a workday.. really?
When this happens.. i run outside expecting an invasion... ala Red Dawn.

Maybe it's the govie's furlough day? Either that or everyone called in sick and is enjoying the sunshine.
Can't wait to tryout out the Gut mains/big ace crosses blend I got cooking up this weekend.
That is only 3 miles from where I stay when I'm up there. Courts look nice from the aerials.
Or Noth Korea is attacking .. which makes me think Sappy is quickly catching up on his Rosetta Stone Korean DVDs. Honestly... how far can he go hiding his identity when his only Korean is korean bbq dishes.
Maybe its the sunshine. When you guys say sunshine.. I'm thinking that equates to partly cloudy down here in Florida. Good luck with that .. and the cicada invasion.
Man the boats!
I was planning on hitting there the other day before my plans got derailed. decent set up with what looks like a hitting wall and 6 courts.
I responded to your toss thread Wookie..
Perhaps the all-time most clever show on TV. The list of "classic quotes" is endless. P.S. When are you coming to Nashvegas to play some tennis? Best, BHBH
Thanks (10 char)
Why do they call it Ovaltine? The mug is round; the jar is round...
Why do they call it Nashvegas? .. all the glitz in Nashville can't supress the colorful tennis outfits of Xisbum in Memphis!
I've talked about it with Geoff. He's been customizing my racquets. When Nashville gets warmer I'll make the trip. Warm being 65 and above.
I first need to stop by Memphis to see Xisbum before Nashville.
LOL! Got a call from my stringer to make sure that wanting gut in the mains and poly in the crosses wasn't a mistake.
Is it really that strange?
Nah! That's a good setup! What kind of gut?
He was a high talker Jerry! I HIGH talker!!!
Yes, I am aware of the quality workmanship only Geoff can provide in the ole customization department. I love your choice of weapons as well.
See you this summer. But don't wait TOO long....it will be hotter than Miami before you know it! (literally, no breeze, 100 degree heat, and 90% humidity).
Why Pacific, of course
Felt good too. I may try dropping a few pounds on the gut tension next time.
How long does gut last unstrung once you open the packet?
Right now I have the gut mains at 55 and the poly crosses (Big Ace) at 50.
IMHO - Control was on par with full poly as was spin and power. I think I was getting a bit more pop off the backhand side as I managed a few DTL backhand winners when playing dubs with P-man, TM, and Dats.
Funny enough, I think the string bed really shined on the slice. Where as my full poly slices where hitting net on going nowhere, I was getting some nice depth and bite on the slice - even TM said I hit a few nasty ones.
BTW- The Mini-Meet had a 0% McBail percentage. LOL!
Thanks to Dats, P-Man and TM for some great tennis, good laughs, and a few dog park balls
Dats was serving hot fire and laser forehands, TM was there with the crafty play as usual, P-man with the topspin, pro-stocks, tom's machine, and the vibrams 5-fingers. I brought the DFs, good lord, in 9 months off from tennis I forgot how to serve!
Anyway, fun stuff!
Gut/poly is overrated...
If you drop a few pounds on your gut, does it change your waistline?
My gut is always overly powerful.
Just decided to try something new. Mcloving seems to like it so I'm giving it a shot.
I've played worst set-ups. I'd put this on par with a full set of tour bite (my current go-to set-up) but with a better slice for some reason. Hoping it won't die as fast since I'm only playing 1-2 times a week right now.
LOL! If it was only that easy.
Are we still talking string? I thought I was the only one that wanted to rub he wookies belly and make wishes...colt 45 wishes.
Are we talking guns or malt liquor?
so out of all of us, only JRS achieved a 0% macbail rate. hes the new leader!
i was about to say i was going to show up...so you could have one mcbail...
Geeze, thanks downs......
Looks like Adidas alomst claimed a nother victim, but a one legged Djoker > a healthy Querry
I used to order natural gut directly from Bow Brand, and would order in bulk (10-20 sets). I asked them that question, and they told me to keep it in a sealed bag in a cool, consistent temperature out of direct sunlight (e.g., basement). They said it would last for years if I did that.
so whats your secret jrs??? making sure downs doesnt show?
Ok thanks. Sent that email before I saw your post. I have it in a freezer zip-lock bag. Should be good.
LOL! It was the promise of being close to plaka grill
The guys atthe bird looked at me funny when i would go in there and get X-1 mains and red code corsses. I said I couldnt gut mains or I would do that all the time.
The guy said nobody puts gut or multi in the mains. I told him I disagreed becuase I do and Federer does. Then the stringer decided to tie a knot not around the main but just make a big knot that wouldnt slip through the grommet hole.
Then I had Sup string my sticks until I got my own stringer.
Now that its warming up some Ill be stringing my sticks up and hoping to hit. But my shoulder is in ruogh shape. I was throwing a baseball the other day and my arm has zero power anymore. Im done. probably like a 3.0 at best now since I cant serve like I used to.
Was chatting with the wife, we may brave the cicadas after all and come up in May.
Then might I recommend this site to make your trip worthwhile?
Do the local Thai joints cook 'em up?
