Apocalypse Now at Kinsley

"You ain't no Brando" retorted Mike 'not so stellar' Stella to the TennisTitan at the conclusion of this morning's classic at Kinsley. Indeed, the 'bellicose blatherer' blatantly bellowed "Stella" as the 'Kraut' dropped the winning point in front of the 'tortured tortoise' to take the set (6-7 [10]). TT had teamed with Frank 'Slats' Slattery in this 75 minute set against Bob 'Kraut' Kluge and the tandem of Joe 'Gimpy Knees' Cruz (3-2)/'not so stellar.' Both teams had set point several times in the back and forth match but it was the clutch performance of the Super Nova Stella who was the star of the first two sets. 'Kraut'/'Super Nova' then proceeded to run rough shod over 'Slats'/George 'Chemist' Hauss (6-4) as the Titan wilted on the sidelines. As much of a surprise as 'Chemist's return to action after a 4 month hiatus due to shoulder surgery, was the disembowelment in both sets of Carl the 'anonymous Gas Man' and 'Big Al' Diodati by the likes of Rich 'Prezidente' Prezioso with Sab 'Koide Kid' (7-5) and then (6-1) with the 'Phantom of Peekskill,' Dave the Mellow One, making his first appearance of the year. 'Prez' exited triumphantly shouting "I coulda been a contenda" demanding acknowledgement from the 'blogging bullshitter' of his double victory and claim of 25! deuces in a game he had served. All was not lost for the 'insipid idiot' this date because 'Slats' invoked his own favorite Brando-ism in explaining to the Godfather of Tennis, the Titan, their thumping (6-1) of the 'Chemist'/'not so stellar' in the morning's finale which was marked by 'Super Nova's flaming out. "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse" - an ice cream that he can eat on his ride on A Streetcar Named Desire down On the Waterfront.
