The Heat was on

"The truth is you were feeling the heat from the first ball" crowed Bob 'Kraut' Kluge, who with the TennisTitan dominated play in sultry Yonkers this afternoon. TT/'Kraut' took on 'Rockin' Rick Ricci and Joe 'Gimpy Knees' Cruz. The (6-3) romp was followed by a (3-love partial) before the combatants came to their senses and stopped play in the 90 degree temperature 80 degree humidity that engulfed Andrus Park in Yonkers. "Let's live to play another day" encouraged 'Der Klugemeister who led the charge to curtail play after seeing 'RRR' unsteady on his legs during the serve toss to begin the fourth game of set 2. 'Rock' insisted he could continue, "I've been drinking water all morning" assured the 'intrepid icon.' "Yeah, Rock, but you forgot the Crown Royale to go with it" chipped in his partner, 'Gimpy Knees.' I've been drinking since I got up at 4AM. A High Ball always improves my toss." "Joe, I think you need to work on a vodka volley" added the 'pompous prevaricator.'
