What a Revolting Development this is

"Damn right, Frankie! Don't pull that Ralph Kramden crap on me now" exploded the TennisTitan at the conclusion of play at the Andrus Tennis Courts this crisp fall afternoon. 'Slats' had told the Titan that he was in the market for a new doubles partner, that carrying the 'whining wimp' through another less than satisfying performance by the 'bloated blowhard' was getting just too much to take. 'Humma, humma, humma" retorted the 'bombastic bloviator' who made you Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler of the Raccoon Lodge? "Titan, you're done as a competitive tennis player. You don't know how to address the ball when it is hit right at you. It's time to take up golf" ranted Frank 'Slats' Slattery stung by the (6-7 [5]) loss to Rich 'dozin' docent' Gerchak and Bob 'Kraut' Kluge. "We beat these guys 6-2 on Saturday when you were somewhat motivated to run for the ball" complained the 'coddling counselor.' "Holding them to a 4-4 partial second set is just not good enough." The 'Kraut' said " I gotta go back to work. You guys, enjoy your lunch at the Chinese Buffet. Speaking of running, I've got to run to drive the commuter bus now, not Ralphie Briscoe... and 'Slats,' it's your game that is in the sewer!"
