Fun Times

"Sab is 'incognito' today...for good reason."

"Good Riddance, TT"

"Titan, the 'Gas Man' is gassed. So, I'll smile for both of us.'

The Send Off

"Titan, I wanted to send you off to Florida in style, I guess it'll have to be only with a smile" quipped Frank  'Slats' Slattery at the conclusion of play at Kinsley park this morning. 'Slats'/TT had fallen (4-6) to Brad 'Broken Broker' Philipps and Carl the 'Anonymous Gas Man' in an epic one hour struggle. "You were just out worked, Titan" carped 'Mr. Wall St.' "That's impossible" shot back 'Slats.TennisTitan was employed in the public sector thirty four years before his retirement 10 years ago. He's still feeding at the pubic trough. And he'll be the first to tell you 'he never worked a day in his life' continued the 'coddling counselor.' "Damn, I've been out of work almost five years now" related the 'Anonymous Gas Man' while Titan's been living the life of Riley. I've forgotten what it's like to get a paycheck for doing something, anything for 4o hours." "Carl, you worked damn hard in that eighth game to earn today's victory by breaking us" added 'Slats.'  "I'm upset" interjected the 'Broken Broker.' "Here's today's I.P.O: 'Slats' writes college recommendations all day, changing but a few words to differentiate each student, my partner plays the unemployment benefits game, and Titan here jets back and forth to Florida three or four times a year thanks to his cushy retirement. And I'm the only one here paying the taxes for this largess. No wonder you guys lean Democratic. "Not me" yelled the 'Titan.' "The only entitlement I want is to lie like a bastard in this blog and bust the balls of those who read it.' This infuriates me more than the (6-1) pounding Sab the 'Kiode Kid' and I endured in our first set loss to the 'bloated behemoth' and the soon to be retired 'Slats' grimaced the 'Broken Broker.'

The Repast Gathering

Tarantella Trio (1)

Tarantella Trio (2)

Our 'Last Supper'

We even had 13 guys... but that's where the similarity ended.

"Can't Miss a Note Kid," Rockin' Rick

"All I sais was 'Rick, come blow your horn."

"What Key?"

The 'Teacher' and the 'Gas Man' were not to be outdone."

It's a Wrap!

"Let's Eat!"

All Good Things Come to...

"I saw no reason that the season shouldn't end for you the way it began" beamed the 'Tullyville Trolley' at the conclusion of play at the Yonkers Tennis Center. 'EBL' had laid another bagel, along with his erstwhile partner, 'Big Al' Diodati, on the tandem of Vladimir 'Russkie' Kartsev and the TennisTitan (2-6, 0-6). "I'll be looking forward to the blog almost as much as the special order of  'cacaphonous crow' I'll order as your entree at the Tennis Dinner Party at Dom and Vinnie's that follows this your final indoor humiliation" chuckled 'Big Al.' "But make sure these two do not pass any dishes or serve any wine to the gang, said Bill 'Energizer Bunny Legs' Tully. "They didn't serve or pass worth a damn against us." "I always like Titan's whine" quipped the 'Russian Bear' "just not his God-awful game."
