    Low Blood Sugar

    Try to eat something with complex carbs, a little protein, and yes, a little bit of dietary fat in it an hour or so before you play. DO NOT take in just something sugary, as that will almost surely lead to a "sugar crash," which sounds a lot like what you've been experiencing. You eat something...

    Automatic vs stick

    I second that. I enjoy my manual in my MR2 Turbo, but also like having an automatic in my Tribute.

    Do you socialize with your tennis buddies outside of the tennis scene?

    I hang out with my tennis friends all the time. We do stuff outside of tennis, like whitewater rafting, we go see the Christmas lights, get together at each others' houses, even went to a comedy concert together (James Gregory - funny guy!). I'm usually the one getting it together, but...

    My 16.3-oz. POG: It feels like I'm cheating!

    Travlerajm, when you put all that weight in the handle of your racquet, why 7 inches from the butt? Why not at the buttcap? Thanks.

    A take on swingweight

    "Swingweight" and head size discussion should be banned?! No, I think people should just not get so emotional about it. For crying out loud, we're just discussing racquets! Don't get SO worked up about it. Now, getting heated up about socio/political issues is perfectly understandable.....LOL!

    What? Hottest day in england yesterday!

    Just out of curiosity, for all you Global Warmers out there, how did Bush, Ronald Reagan, Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, and the rest of us Republicans cause all the numerous climatic changes, including global warming and global cooling, thousands of years ago? Geologists...

    What? Hottest day in england yesterday!

    Haha, this reminds me of a story from a few years back. A friend of mine worked at CNN in Atlanta. There was this new co-worker from England. One day in the spring, it was around 65 deg. F, and she asked my friend, "does it always get this hot here in Atlanta?" Hehehe.. she had NO idea what she...

    "ProStaff 6.0 85 members only!!!"

    Yep, sure have. I put 12 pounds of lead on the throat of my PS 85. The first serve I ever hit with it actually killed the returner and I'm now facing manslaughter charges...something about yielding a dangerous weapon... LOL!

    How many PS 85 do you have?

    Just one, for now. Hey Thaychua, could you tell me how differently the "bumpered" racquets play vs. the "bumperless" ones? Thanks!

    Funiest Movies You've Ever Seen?

    Favorite Romantic Comedy: "Deliverance"! <G> Really, "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" was pretty funny, "The Blues Brothers" was funny and had good music.

    Nike Sizing

    Yes, this tends to be true of Nike shoes. I wear an 8.5 in any other shoe, but I need a 9 in Nikes.

    "ProStaff 6.0 85 members only!!!"

    Wow Johnl, I haven't tried my 85 with such a low tension. Nor have I tried it with a hybrid set-up either. Keep us informed of how it plays with the added lead.

    My 16.3-oz. POG: It feels like I'm cheating!

    Hmm, I've kinda thought about doing this to my PS 85. I wonder if all that extra weight might help smooth my swing some? Seems like when I swing a lighter racquet (my PS 85 weighs 12.9 oz.), there's a lot of "wobble" in my swing. I know it's from my technique (or lack thereof!), but I still...

    Yonex SHT-305 Sizing?

    Don't know about the SHT-305s, but the SHT-304s run about a half-size large. Hope this helps.

    What to do??

    Since he's only played on your team once, why not just tell him your team is going to be full, now that one of your previous players, who has been injured, is coming back? That might work.

    Crispy Creme Donuts

    Nope, not kidding! I could (and have done so!) easily do either. That's why I wrote that it takes a LOT of willpower on my part not to eat a dozen KKs, or an entire half-gallon of ice cream in one sitting. Wow, if only those things were "negative-calorie" foods, like celery is alleged to be, I'd...

    Any cities other than Atlanta run their own league system?

    Penpal, don't mean to highjack your thread, but we had another guy have a heart attack out on the court during an ALTA match last Saturday. He and his daughter Brooke (who got me in to ALTA, btw) were playing a match, winning in the second set, when he had to quit, 'cause he wasn't feeling good...

    Pegging on your doubles partner on a first serve...

    I've both hit and been hit with a serve, several times. I often play with a rather uh, "healthy" girl, and I blasted a serve right in her crack one night. Every now and again, I'll still ask her if she ever found that ball!<G> She just shoots me a bird... I've also gotten drilled right at the...

    Crispy Creme Donuts

    Krispy Kreme donuts are one of my weaknesses. Those, and butter pecan icecream. It takes an enormous amount of self-control on my part not to eat a whole dozen Krispy Kremes, or a whole half-gallon of Mayfield butter pecan icecream.

    Uh, speak for yourself, Frodo! Meg, you show ANY kind of picture of yourself you want! If it happens to be from a wet-shirt contest you were in, so be it. I think we can handle it.<G> Uh, speaking of pictures, Frodo, did you ever get around to posting one of yourself?

    Final decision of switching from n six-one 95 to n six-one 90

    You should buy the racquet, and if you wind up not playing well with it, give it to a very good cause - me! I'll send you my shipping address...<G>
