Rise and Shine?

"Titan, what the fuck" was all 'Rockin' Rick Ricci could say at 7AM at the Yonkers Tennis Center this snowy morning as Titan entered the locker room. 'Rock, I'm desperate. There's no chance of outdoor play with the snow cover here in Yonkers and temperatures always below 20. So I got up at 5AM first to shovel, then to get a couple of early bird sets in and wish you a happy birthday to boot." Aches and pains be damned, TennisTitan paired with the reliable George the new 'Deli man' Hauss in two hard fought sets against the inestimable 'RRR' and Dr.Steve 'DDS' Goldberg. After 90 minutes of play that foursome had split both sets (4-6, 6-4). A rusty 'odious oaf' and an over worked 'deli man' salvaged their morning by running the table in the second set after being down 1-4 to end the match on a high note. At picture time 'RRR' wondered if TT would note that the tandem of 'Rock'/Deli man had run roughshod over the Titan and Hannibal "Caballero' Mistorini (0-5 partial) before time expired. "Absolutely not 'Rock!' You know the blog rule: no incomplete sets are worthy of mention" countered the 'peripatetic prevaricator.' "How do you know Steve is a Doctor of Dental Surgery queried the 'Caballero.' "I don't" responded the 'bloviating bullshitter.' "But that lefty's got a Damned Deceptive Serve!"
