    I like the bright idea. :) LOL

    There were two warmups going on simultaneously when that photo was taken.

    javier, and oscar

    dr punk, and no skillz.

    Of course, the warm-up didn't help oscar and dr punk. They lost the tiebreak. Muahahahaha :)

    Hey, dr punk - are you really a tennis coach at an academy in the area? If you are, could you maybe email me using the email function on the forum here? I've been applying for some jobs at a few academies in various places, including a couple in Florida. It'd be nice to talk to someone who's already there working at one.

    I am. Honestly the reason i'm a coach is because the tennis director at the academy tries to hire young people so that no coaches get overpaid. There is only one other coach besides the director that gets more than 300 dollars every two weeks. So I really just do it for tennis and getting a quick buck while doing it.

    Hmm, anyone else think Dr. Punk(netman on receiving team) is in a really bad position? Leaving a huge hole for the service team to hit through?

    If I weren't so sick, i'd make something up and defend myself, but honestly I'm not a fan of doubles and less of volleys. lol
