Is It Okay For A Closet Fedal To Come Out?
« on: March 03, 2009, 08:20:31 PM »
Hello to all Newcombers and other members!

           I've been lurking here for quite some time. Being a Fedal fan, (though, I'll admit, I'm more of a Rafa fan first), this site can be a bit harsh and a little intimadating. I've wanted to post here, it's just the bashing that was holding me back. I've since decided grow a spine, lol, and post as much as I can.

Spines are welcome but not required.  It has calmed down here within the last week and it will stay that way.  We are getting back to our roots.  :)

Do you play any tennis as well or just a fan?

Welcome to the forums!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

We are trying to keep this place free of bashing. It's difficult sometimes, but we try. I hope you will free to post in comfort.

Thank you both for the welcomes!

No, I don't play tennis myself. I have a blood cell disease that prevents me from physical activity. So, I'm forced to just watch gorgeous guys play instead, lol.

Yes, I've noticed that it's mellowed out here a bit. That was part of my decision to see if I could find a place here. I hope I can find a clique of posters that I click with.

Welcome to the forum!  Hope you stick around.  It's good to be a Fedal fan right about now.  You have the best of both worlds!  Don't let the bashing stop you from posting.  Hopefully, as others have said - it has cooled off some so now we can get back to basically posting about our love for tennis!

Welcome again!  Let us know if you need anything to make you feel welcome!  We're here to help!

Chris, Monky, Monstertruck, Dallas, and OSU Buckeye...

Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou all for being so gracious to me! Especially, you, Dallas, lol..you being one of Rafa's...while, I don't want to say harsh...so, maybe I'll say, stinging critique here and there about my Rafa, lol. That's okay, though, I'm not as sensitive as some. I actually try to remind myself that this is supposed to be FUN, LOL!!!!! So if I hurt someone's feelings or my own have been hurt by someone else's post, that's when I'll remind myself take a breath and take a step back and perhaps, come back later. Well, it's Eleven pm here and I'm hurting and on pain meds so I hope I make any kind of sense, and again, I want to thank everyone for making me feel welcome.

Hey!  I don't think I'm 'harsh' against Nadal? Am I? :rofl_2: :confused1: :innocent:  Well anyway - welcome and I do like your Avator too!  Nice touch! :))
