Peck, peck, peck, peck

'Slats' stated "I guess that is why Titan calls him 'Speedy Legs' as Carl Gessman hastened to the exit at Kinsley this morning, "I can relate to that." Actually 'SL' departed figuratively 20 minutes before when his game left the Titan partnerless in their second set match against George 'Chemist' Hauss and Frank 'Slats' Slattery. TT/'SL' were up three-love when the tide turned. It was again hastened in by the inexplicable departure of a once reliable Gessman serve as undoubtedly a mother-in-law chauffeur obligation beclouded his on-court responsibilities. Making the matters worse was a botched line call made by an out-of-position 'Chemist looking through his partner's moving feet from 9 yards away. "You can't be serious" yelled the 'bellyaching blowhard' in his best John McEnroe voice from his position looking right down the line at the hapless 'Slats' unable to play the ball. The discombobulated unemployed graphic artist proceeded to fall apart but did not lose his sense of perspective. "Titan, you and I defeated 'Big Al' Diodati and Joe 'Gimpy Knees' Cruz (6-4) in the opener, 'GK' will fill in for me at four all and carry the 'bloated behemoth' to victory too." Not to be. The 'whining wimp'/'GK' lost two hard fought games (4-6) to end TT's morning with a split. As the bedraggled 'SL' left skid marks on Morsemere Avenue he yelled to the 'snivelling snot,' "Blowhard, you can carry (rip) me on the court all you want, but Donna brings home the paycheck. Girls rule. You're a fool!" (so this is news?!)
