Pensive Thoughts

"Speedy, are you sure you practiced your serve for 45 minutes yesterday" commented TennisTitan at the conclusion of play this evening at Kinsley. Your 'bloated behemoth' put together a doubles match involving Carl 'Speedy Legs' Gessman, and the Georges - 'Teacher' Febles and 'Chemist' Hauss. With the strong possibility of rain in the Saturday forecast, TT wanted a forum to apply lessons learned from his attendance at the Pilot Pen tournament on Monday. Titan teamed with the 'Chemist' for a three set sweep; 3,2, and 3. Your 'loathsome Lothario' had it all working this day: the folly floater to the backhand on the serve, the looping lob to force a defensive return, the twisting teaser to the forehand side to open up the court and the occasional laser to the open garage door middle. 'Chemist' feasted on set ups at net and imposed his will on the befuddled Febles and the garrulous Gessman with guile and agility. Gessman's usual solid game was undermined by his double figure double faults ( 7 to TT, 3 to 'Chemist'). As the crew met at net, 'El Profesor' opined, "Tommy TrashTalk, I went to the Pilot Pen with you. How come my game didn't improve today and yours did?" The 'blogging bullshitter' didn't hesitate: 'Teach, I took the Pilot Pen course for credit, you only audited it." 'Chemist' quipped, "Ain't that a Bic." 'Speedy Legs' chortled "Don't be Cross with us Titan, you kicked our ass." "I'm gonna celebrate at home with a Schaefer" retorted TT.
