Hey Chicken, Don't be a Jerk!

TennisTitan joined the 'Gazelle' Clarence Williams, making a rare early Saturday morning appearance at Kinsley in a tightly contested first set against the 'Teutonic twosome,' Bob 'Kraut' Kluge and Carl 'the anonymous Gas Man.' In a set marked with long rallies featuring crisp volleys and precise lobs that had the players continually scrambling for and adjusting their on court positions 'Kraut'/'Gas Man' prevailed (3-6). The ever 'gracious Gazelle' sat out his second opportunity to pair with the Titan, deferring to the always less than gracious (at picture time) 'Dave the Rave' who shuns the camera lens, but never the baseline rallies. The (6-3) victory orchestrated by TT/'Dave the Rave' over Mike 'not so stellar' Stella and Chris 'I-man' Ikhigbonoaremen proved that good defensive play can often overcome superior offensive fire power. "The Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo are the dominant tribes in my native land, Titan, you are the spiritual leader of the Kinsley tribe. It's not your play, but rather your mouth and enthusiasm that dominates here"chided a despondent 'I-man.' To wit Titan quipped, 'Chris, don't worry, your talent on the tennis court already exceeds mine. However, I think I am funnier than that has-been Don Imus on the radio."
