    Champions have an aura about themselves, say some; I say they just work hard as hell.

    Diamonds rank at the top of the Mohs scale of hardness. They are created from coal under an extreme level of pressure under our planet's crust. They are also thought of as a girl's best friend but everyone knows who is a man's best friend.

    "Blood, toil, tears and sweat" is the accurate phrase spoken by Winston Churchill in the darkest hour of the early hardships of WW2. Gary Oldman just won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Britain's PM in the film "The Darkest Hour."

    I'm gonna try and see it tomorrow!

    Blood, Sweat & Tears had a huge hit song called, "Spinning Wheel."

    "Watching The Wheels"was recorded for John Lennon's final album "Double Fantasy." It has become my theme song to silently hum in my brain while I spin my pedicab wheels. If I get back into the racquet stringing biz, I'll hum "Stringing In The Rain" on bad weather days.

    Is that a parody of my hit single "Eating Gulab Jamuns in the Rain" ?

    "I'm happy again,
    Eating gulab jamuns again.
    I've a smile on my face,
    and gulab jamun syrup dripping all over the place
    Just Singin
    About eating Gulab Jamuns in the rain.

    Let the stormy clouds chase
    the syrup all over my face
    Come on with the spray
    I walk down the lane
    with a gulab jamun stain
    and I'm ready for love ...

    Starring Sewri of course.

    Ex-Commish Stern, no? Gagging on Harden's lack of defense and now the kiddie behavior in the Clippers locker room.

    NBA fights are mostly for show, this however is not one of those. Van Gundy did the best of his ability.

    NBA players, I believe, need more stamina than in any other sport due to the constant running up and down the court.

    Soccer players run more on a much bigger field and get subbed out only once per longer match (90 minutes vs 48).

    Even considering the substitutions, the relentless intensity of hockey is hard to match. Hard-fought five set tennis matches should not be overlooked.

    The gluten-free one plays Gael Monfils soon which brings to mind a previous match between the two wherein Monfils' strategy was to apparently stand about stiffly and swat at the ball. I'm sure Djokovic was beyond puzzled as was I, and John McEnroe was downright furious and called it disgraceful. I was highly unhappy as I thought he had the game to bring against Djokovic and that's what I want to see this time around. I'm excited for this upcoming contest.

    John McEnroe knew how to take the ball early; Monfils takes the ball too late.

    It is said that comedy relies quite heavily on good timing. A friend of ours proves that analysis applies to both comedy and tennis at the same time:

    When you are an oblate spheroid, you have no corners or sides. It's all the same -- equally odd all over.

    The most popular oblate spheroid in sports is the American football, which takes some awfully funny bounces at crucial moments in games. Our favorite oblate spheroid is also known for his funny bouncing, particularly when he decides to split step on one foot.:p:D

    Is that oblate spheroid becoming more and more like a toroid as a result of too much bagelling?

    It's the schmear of cream cheese that is inflating our oblate spheroid to a size suitable for floating in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

    @dgold44 is a Martial Artist hence his propensity to wrestle on martial arts mat or flooring than on a couch.

    @dgold44 would now need snorkel and fins if he was sleeping on floor or mats instead of a gf's couch. I say we take up @slice bh compliment 's suggestion to fund a recovery for our Las Vegas shlimazl. Maybe even get him a gf off the Strip.

    To skillfully weave Castaway and Shawshank into one poast takes some agility. Well done, Tom.

    dgold, keep the faith. You've been through a lot, but it could be worse! It has NOT killed you or your spirit. It's making you stronger.
    I have not been through two of those, but I have suffered losses. Trust in God, be thankful for your resilience, and emerge as an even better person. VAmos dgold!

    Your compliments are appreciated. To be considered a skillful weaver of thoughts with mental agility by possibly the most agile of poasters is not a backhanded compliment. Mobile, agile but not too hostile is my motto unless I'm playing for Coach Berry, in which case I'm ready to become very hostile for 60 minutes on the gridiron.

    Maybe you could fly out to Vegas and “retire me “

    Sneaking into my car’s rear drivers seat with tennis poly strings should do the trick
    Then u fly back to the SE

    May need 16 gauge !!!

    Some nice Solinco Barbed Wire usually does the trick. Can you afford me though? I string really quick because they call me Six Digit Tom!

    They call Sureshs Six Digit Sureshs too, because that's usually the damage caused in lost revenue and Roto Rooter bills every time he visits an AYCE.

    I'll subcontract out to SexiSuri for the biz trip to Vegas. He will give new meaning to the term "hit" with his lethal Spray that DollyJoeliet so craves.
