You actually got my shoulder...cause I'm good at dodging!

I will agree with this...basically the only time I get brassed off is when it is at my head, hard, and people cheer afterward.

I felt bad for some of the women who were effectively 'on display' for all the construction workers to ogle. None of them actually whistled , but you could wipe the drool off the courts from them hanging over the railings above.
Haha...yes, I can verify this. Well, at least the first part.

There is always a long story!

I may miss you altogether since I'm not coming in until Saturday...or are you going to hang out for the last match anyway?
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
