Here in Tullyville

TennisTitan returned to the courts this date after a two and one-half week hiatus to rest his ailing calf. What better way to return than to join forces with Bill 'Energizer Bunny Legs' Tully on his home Schultz Park court against dominant Saturday morning Kinsley players Frank 'Slats' Slattery and Bob 'Kraut' Kluge. "Titan, we are tired of carrying you each and every week, let 'EBL' pay the tonnage" croaked 'Der Klugemeister' before the first ball was tossed. "Yeah, let another Irishman listen to your blather and lame excuses for balls you shank" chirped the 'coddling counselor.' It was a different tune they were singing 90 minutes later. Double break down at 1-4 TT/'EBL' ran the table to take the opener (6-4). Down single break 1-3 in the second set the weary crew left the court on serve (5-4 partial) with Titan taunting the 'testy Teuton' retreating to his car with the refrain: "Bobby, Bobby please, Titan wants to beat you with his new knees. Nah, Nah, Na-Nah-Na, now go back to work, you lost another to this jerk!" Slats' interjected, "don't press you luck, 'bombastic blowhard', you won the battle today because you had the magnum 45, come Saturday you'll be back playing with your derringer."
