"Leave the (racquet) gun, eat the canoli."

"Don't worry Max, I'll think of something" was TennisTitan's quick reply. 'Tutor' Tuchman had paired with the 'bloated behemoth' for the umpteenth time against "Big Al' Diodati and Bill 'Energizer Bunny Legs' Tully and sustained the predictable results, a brace of losses (3-6, 2-6). "Don't you ever get tired of describing how well you played in losing efforts" opined 'Big Al.' "Al, do you ever get tired of eating pasta fagioli? Playing with 'EBL' is your sfogliatelli" was TT's only retort. "You're making me hungry" whimpered the 'Tutor' "and the end of the season dinner is still two weeks away." "The doctor gave you new knees, he didn't promise you new ability, Titan" continued the 'Tullyville Trolley.' "That's for damn sure" chirped the 'Italian Stallion.' "Titan had some jump to the ball today and some pop on his serve" commented the 'Tutor.' "Both of you guys played some good points" contributed 'EBL'. "But the longer the point went, the more likely they were to lose it" observed the 'obtuse octogenarian.' "Al, go easy, the 'Tutor'/Titan tandem is a special one. Two aging 'has beens' who really 'never were' much to begin with. The fact that one has had recent back surgery and the other replaced both knees to continue to play this game we all love, makes them winners in my book.
