Some "how do you do."

Twelve hours after touching down at LaGuardia TennisTitan came in for a real hard landing at Andrus Park. "Don't worry boys I have crashed and burned many times against lesser players than you and got off the tarmac to get air borne again" proclaimed TT at the end of two hours of play and a three set loss. Titan lost 4-3-2 (a certain symmetry to my declining games) when paired with Joe 'Gimpy Legs' Cruz, Bob 'Kraut' Kluge and Frank 'Slats' Slattery, respectively. "Wait'll you see me on Saturday at Kinsley" puffed the 'prevaricating pomposity' as he excused his erratic play to a one month layoff while in Florida. "Titan, when we play with you, we carry a lot of baggage. You give true meaning to the name AirBus" quipped 'Slats' "I am an American Express Delta Gold Card man" retorted the 'odious oaf.'  The first bag is free," Frankie. "Titan, your name should never be associated with anything 'Express' giggled 'Der Klugemeister.' "I hope Delta's air miles points are not based on points you win in tennis" dead panned 'Gimpy Knees'. "You'll never earn a free flight."
