An Ugly Finish

TennisTitan started his Saturday morning play at Kinsley with the best of intentions. Play hard and sweat out the residual effects of having had too much to drink and too little sleep the night before. TT paired with his 'naughty nephew,' Rob 'Jersey Bomber' Briscoe in the rain interrupted first set against 'Dave the Rave' and Chris 'nimble Nigerian' Ikhigbonoaremen (say that three times fast and win a can of tennis balls). The (3-6) defeat sustained at the hands of the team calling themselves "Black Gold" was the highlight of the 'boisterous blowhard's ever worsening morning. While 'Black Gold' continued to dominate against   'Jersey Bomber'/ 'Kraut' Kluge, Titan was relegated to pair with Mike 'not so stellar' Stella against Carl the 'anonymous gasman' and "Stuart 'not Espn' Scott. "Pounding you (2-6) is a treat, Titan' boasted the once 'spindly legs' white victor. I'd say I had a little 'Black Gold' myself with the way Stuart out played you two." Titan and 'Jersey Bomber' seemed poised to garner their first victory of the day when up (3-0, 30 - love, partial) against 'Kraut'/'not so stellar' when 'pop went the weasel' occurred. The 'loathsome loudmouth' became the 'lame libertine' - with a torn (the pop), right medial calf muscle. At picture time the 'naughty nephew' and 'Der Klugemeister' - both of whom know something about drinking - offered some sound advice. Coat your stomach with dairy products two hours before a serious night of pub crawling, leave your wallet at home, for every ounce of alcohol in a mixed drink have an 8 ounce glass of water before the next round. But 'not so stellar' had the stellar suggestion of the trio: "Titan, don't play tennis with a hangover. It's like you giving us all a buy back."
