It's about time

TennisTitan returned to the courts this day joining mates Joe 'Gimpy Knees' Cruz, Bob 'Kraut' Kluge and Frank 'Slats' Slattery in three sets at Andrus Park in Yonkers. Titan paired with the 'testy Teuton' for the first two sets and was spanked (0-6, 4-6) as he tried to shake off seven weeks of court inactivity and a balky left hip. Der Klugemeister performed far below his usual level, further exposing Titan's inability to carry his part of the load. Greater success was attained in the finale with 'Slats' doing yeoman work (4-6) bringing a modicum of respectability to the 'bloated behemoth's game. At picture time the affable group acknowledged that neither the Saturday Kinsley group nor the midweek sessions at Andrus had the intensity that TT's aggravating and aggrandizing comments add to the game. 'Slats' opined, "yeah Titan, with you back in the fold, I no longer have to worry that I am the weakest link in this chain of tennis players."
