A Revolting Development

"George, you could have had the whole British army behind you today, and it wouldn't have made a damn bit of difference" boasted the 'bellicose bullshitter." TennisTitan and partner Frank 'Slats' Slattery has just seen the whites of the eyes of the 'Chemist,' George Hauss and the 'Teacher,' George Febles and come away with a brace of doubles victories (6-4, 6-4) at Kinsley Park this late afternoon. 'Slats' opined at picture time "maybe next week they should bring a third George, you know, Titan, George III. They need a King to reign in their errant ground strokes and misdirected volleys." Indeed, the tandem of TT/'Slats' stood tall withstanding the four games to three lead held by the Georges in both sets only to break the duo in the critical ninth games to fashion both their triumphs. "Slats, these guys are so wooden on the court against us they remind me of King George III furniture, stiff and uncomfortable, under pressure. To wit, the 'Teacher'  exclaimed, "Alright, Mr. Tighten, next week, our third George will be one George Washington. He knows how to lead an underdog to victory."
