Nothing like someone offering to meet you for a 'throw down' in some airport in flyover country.
Wife: "What's this!? $300 flight to Wichita last Wednesday?"
Me: "Yeah, sorry babe. Got into a heated argument about guys with two-handed backhands being cooters and was challenged to a fight on the TW boards. The guy was from the east coast, so we arranged a meet-up halfway".
Wow! You (and TW) go back that far? Time - she is a'flyin'. If someone could direct me to an archive of the early days of Talk Tennis (I gave it a short, unfruitful effort), I'd have no problem blowing thirty minutes or an hour reading the ancient script.
Remember this, you are lucky to have lived during the golden age of beer (except Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams).
