    Citi Open DC

    Trying to see if I can get up there for a day probably on the Wednesday. Anyone been, any tips. I hate DC traffic so avoiding that would make the whole thing more enticing.

    One more reason to be Finnish

    Päntsdrunk is the anglicised word for the Finnish kalsarikänni, a term that literally means “drinking at home, alone, in your underwear”. And yes, in Finland this is a fully fledged, nationally celebrated pastime (not the sign of a minor emotional breakdown)...

    Matt Doyle

    They served

    I thought it would be an idea to start a thread for those passing away who probably are not popular/famous enough to merit their own thread. Today Malcolm Young, founder member of AC/DC, died at age 64. Born in Glasgow, moved to Australia at a young age. A very popular band, I was always...

    On this day in 1917

    The Bolsheviks overthrew the regime and took over Russia in what may have been the most significant coup in world history. Any TT posters ever overthrow the decadent capitalist system in place or take part in any revolutionary shenanigans?

    You are Monfils

    Let's get creative with a little scenario. You are Monfils. It's your biggest ever game and you reach match point. You hit a great approach and come to net, you get an easy pop up to your backhand side. It's high and you have time. What do you do next? Remember, you are Monfils.

    William Harris

    It's March, it's college

    That time of the year in usa usa usa where every sentence should be spoken in an annoying Dick Vitale loud voice and most sentences end using the word baby. Who is your early pick baby? Seems like a lot of parity this year with about 8 teams with a good shot of winning the big one baby. It's...

    A strange weekend for Scottish knights

    Sir Rod Stewart, who claims to be Scottish through his fathers side, was invited to take part in the Scottish football (sacker) Cup draw. Quite amusing behavio(u)r. Probably not worth its own thread but drunken Sirs don't seem to have any section. Yet.

    Hark the sound: Tar Heel tennis

    Given recent success and the strong chance of the women winning a national title this season I felt a UNC thread was overdue. The men are a solid top 10 team this year I think. Hopefully this is not a duplicate thread, I couldn't find anything using the search function.

    Future college coaches

    I am not sure if this has been done before, if so my apologies. I was watching Aus mens doubles and Eric Butorac was playing. The commentator said he was a volunteer assistant at Harvard (I assume men, he didn't specify). I would guess he has plans to coach a college team later, I may be way...
