    I am not lucky with trifectas or exactas. Rather pick the winner.. then get my chicken dinner!

    Demos inbound:

    1. Wilson Steam 99 S
    2. Head Graphene Speed Pro
    3. Yonex Vcore 89
    4. Yonex VCore Xi 98

    Strings ordered:

    Ashaway Zyex Monogut
    Forten Thin Blend
    MSV Focus Hex

    I already know I like the Focus Hex, Black Magic and BHB7. Trying out a few more for contrast before I buy my next reel.

    In other news... I got to attend a Murphy Jensen clinic this past Sunday. It was pretty fun!

    No TFight 315 = Fail.

    I went to Luke Jensen Clinic one time. Then went to ruby Tuesday Afterwards and watched him house down an entire rack of ribs.

    Dude was pretty cool. Im sure he was texting some eastern european female tennis recruit at the time.

    This one was 10am in Annapolis. Did he hit Arlington same day?

    HW - I did get a picture with him, but he wasn't gonna hang out afterwards.

    JRStriker: Is this accessible via Metro? Union Station?

    What's for lunch today? I am going to chinatown to get some fresh rice noodles for stir frying tonight.

    How come no one in TWMAC are commenting on the Redskins name thread going on now?

    if they haven't changed it by now - i don't think it's ever going to change. plus i'm not sure what they would change it to that doesn't sound completely azztastic. for god sakes they turned a team into the wizards. who the funk thought that was a good idea?

    week 2 of my like-affair with rebel 98's. tour bite and rpm blast at 50 pounds is too stiff for my brittle steph curry like wrists. gotta put in tour bite soft. it's still the best serving stick i've ever played with.

    NOMA / NY Ave metro station on red line. My guess is a lucked out. It was late in the day and I think he wasn't the regular sandwich counter employee.

    Any of you guys watch Pain and Gain yet?

    I was reading about what happened in real life.

    The guy that Monk plays in real life was pretty much a scumbag that was stealing money from medicare and didnt call the cops after being held hostage for a month, until like 4 months after they tried to burn him alive in a car after making him drink for 5 days striaght and feeding him sleeping pills. He woke up from the burning car got out then they ran him over. Then those dudes killed other poeple and when he tesitified they busted him for fraud. Only to make him pay like 100grand becuase they said he was punished enough by those other dudes.

    Crazy story that is. Look up Sun Gym Gang if you want to read about it. I think what I was reading was cbsnews article.

    You mean surround sound like your TV uses?

    The easiest way would proabbly be to just get a stereo to RCA connector. Some places call them mini-stereo plugs or 3.5mm headphone jacks.

    The stereo end would plug into your Headphone jack (Green on most computers) on your laptop and then plug the red and white cables into your system.

    Raido Shack sells them for like 10 bucks.

    [​IMG]

    You would get full surround sound 5.1 channel action but it would play.

    maybe you have fancier laptop that can do more I dont know.

    i'm still here...had chili for lunch yesterday that i froze a few weeks ago...

    hit with a pure drive plus yesterday and liked it...but who am i kidding...i like all frames...the only reason i probably liked it was because it had really really old strings it...how do you reproduce an old string job? string the frame, then let them sit in your basement for a few years?

    I believe he accidentally bought a new place, so he may be occupied with other things in the near term.

    Pre-stretch, string loose, and then step on it.

    There was this urban legend, that if you freeze your string .. then thaw it out.. string it loose.. it would play a lot like a string that was about to break would (which i think is sweet).. but with more durability (not much). It's an urband legend.

    Why don't you accidentally put your strings in the freezer and let us know. Just don't eat it.

    Mclovin,

    It was sad not to see you at the national tournament down here.

    Did your girls high school team win?

    north reston...a little bit up wheile...found a huge townhouse that i got into a bidding war with another potential buyer -- but the other person couldn't close in time for the seller...paulman says it's closer to oakton / vienna? but i'm about 2.5 miles north of the new silver line...i was tempted to buy a fixer upper -- but then i realized...that's a lot of time taken away from tennis...

    i've been hearing that there are not many houses for sale and the ones that are put up are picked up quickly with lots of interested buyers. house across the street from us went up last week. they got multiple offers days later. dozens of families came by to check the house out.

    downs -- you noticing the same thing? not a lot of houses and lots of competition? and are prices going back up much?

    It's everywhere I read. Inventory has been scarce. Something maybe to do with banks finally selling off foreclosures.

    I think its a fluke. Like getting aced by Topaz while tying your shoes. jk

    Tennismonkey,

    Vegas TWMAC trip? I need someone to play the part though:

    C-a-p-s Caps caps caps!

    I'm going to be pulling out the Ove' shirt tonight.

    Sadly the population here is not into hockey too much. Probably explains why I keep hearing..

    it's crazy right now -- if something is decent, it's not staying on the market very long...I think it's a combo of very low inventory / ridiculous interest rates...i think people are finally ready to buy again...that's what my gut says...

    it also says feed me....so i'm getting mixed messages...

    Won the Monday match 9-0, got crushed in the Thursday match 8-1. The team we played Thursday *should* have been a shoe-in for states. Except one of the top 3 girls was caught drinking at prom three weeks ago & was kicked off the team.

    No one (and I mean no one) would have been able to touch this teams #3 player. She was a legitimate #1 at any other school in the region. And if you know anything about girls high school tennis...the skill level drops significantly after the #2 player.

    downs knows the girl I'm talking about as I played w/ her at the mixed doubles challenge he played in a couple of months ago.

    Pre-stretch poly maybe? Downs plus a PD? Sounds like overkill.
