Reality Sets In

TennisTitan regrouped at the Andrus Park courts with Joe 'Gimpy Knees' Cruz, Frank 'Slats' Slattery and Bob 'Kraut' Kluge. TT/'Slats' paired in the opener hoping they could duplicate their strong performance from last week but were soundly trounced (1-6). 'Der Klugemeister' stepped up to be the Titan's partner in the second set and evidently lost his mojo (2-6). Hope was springing eternally - until an afternoon shower stopped play with TT/'Gimpy Knees up (2-1 partial). At picture time a visibly lame TennisTitan offered, "I either have leg cramps coming on or have strained a calf muscle and probably shouldn't play on Wednesday." An unsympathetic 'Kraut' retorted, "you probably shouldn't play any day, you just haven't realized it yet." 'Slats,' quipped, "Titan, your excuses for losing are always lame, so this leg business is nothing new." "Leave the man alone in his misery," interjected 'Gimpy Knees.' I feel bad enough that the rain prevented me from winning a third game with the 'odious oaf.' Then I could have declared myself the best player today."
