Yep.  But i re-injured my knee in the WV Open 2 weeks prior to going to Dayton.  I was in Des Moines on business and was going to fly directly to Dayton for the matches but that was the start of one of my longer layoffs.  I missed a good 6 months.  I think they thought I just didn't want to play but I was seriously done.  That's the first time I had played team tennis since the 80's.  I played 3 matches for them that summer to qualify and then this happened. i don't like the format (no ad;time limit, etc..).  I remember playing singles once and fell behind by a break and the dude went into stall mode and I said good bye after that.

It is most unfortunate when people take advantage of the system.  Outside of that, I love the setup and the team format and all.  Closest thing some of us can get to playing college!  As far as the time constraints go, that will exist due to the indoor court time crap anyway.

But if you play with us Jamesdster you could play doubles if you like.  I of course call dibs as your partner.  :)

I played some doubles tonight.  I started the first two games as bad as one can start the first two games.  We finally got a hold and then settled into the match.  We played pretty solid.  My partner only hit 1 double fault all night, as compared to 20 just 2 nights ago.  Seems like he shook off the rust pretty quickly.  We both played better than we did the other night.  So it was nice to get back on track.  We won 6-3, 6-3.  Played a third set for fun but got squashed 1-6, we were tired but it was still fun.

I came home, ate cake (I had the pizza for mid-morning snack) and had my 5th coke for the day and I am off to bed.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

scott, as ur nutritional advisor, I advise that if u plan on losing "8-10 lbs", ur current diet wont work.lol... cake isn't a post-active food... I trick that I have to keep my body as fine as possible is that I don't eat right before a sleep... when u eat ur last meal at around 5:00, you still have a couple hours to burn off a little fat. Thus, u can cut down on weight a little at a time... Since this is a holiday and people tend to gorge themselves during this period... I advise that u sleep in til about afternoon and the have two meals for the day... breakfast (lunch if u wanna get technical) and dinner.. haha
 ;)

Pfft, allow me to tell you about my diet plan (not currently working :) )

5:30 A.M. - Get to Gas Station - Get Cappachino
9:30 A.M. - Chips and Coke
10:30 A.M. - Sandwhich and Coke
12:01 P.M. - Eat rest of lunch, maybe bananna or something and Coke
3:30 P.M. - Coke
5:30 P.M. - Dinner with wifey.  Hambuger Helped, or some kind of pasta.
9:00 P.M. - Ice cream or pizza (yes every day)

I plan on croaking by age 32.  Just 7 months away.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

well, allow me to help u out:

I think that b/c u're having such little snacky things at the start of the day, it causes u to be starving by the end of the day; not to mention the fact that u have absolutely NO water during the day... I advise that u get rid of the 9:30 snack (pointless).. for the 10:30 one, puch it to 12:00 (12:01? ..-) ) it's fine if u have a big sanwich or a sub... I don't see anything wrong w/ ice cream at nine... as long as it's not like a tub... overall, it should look like this:

5:30 A.M. - Get to Gas Station - Get Cappachino (grab a bagel or suthin while u're there)
9:30 A.M. - eliminated
12:01 P.M. - large Sandwhich and Coke (it would be better to have water)
3:30 P.M. - Coke (don't need that)
5:30 P.M. - Dinner with wifey.  Hambuger Helped, or some kind of pasta. (actually healthy  :H )
9:00 P.M. - Ice cream (small portion)

Of course, you're probably not gonna follow it, but that diet mixed w/ exercise (u get plenty of that) should get u back to a 32 waist! ;-()  I feel really weird giving nutritional tips btw. :;:-|

Not trying to sound judgmental here but that is just disgusting...... Oh and one of the main reasons so many people are obese is that in early stages of lacking water you feel hungry and that is why certain weight loss programs such as weight watchers tell you to drink water ... often i say have one coke a day not late (lunch) and have water most other times it flushes out harmful stuff and as i said is overall great for you

LMAO> that's exactly what I said to myself... Whenever I babysit (yes, I babysit it's good money) they just tell me to have whatever I want to eat... and of course I do, but they have nothing but junkfood and I wanna barf when I see it... I'm not a health freak, but I'm too scared of gettin fat to eat like that.

I am in good shape and I am extremely far from obese.  If that starts to change I will worry about my eating habits.  Besides, it is indeed diet coke.  :)

Trust me, I know I am addicted to it when I get the headaches when I do not get my caffeine.

I eat OK.  I am not too worried yet.  I just need to cut out the 9:00 feasting.

So far today:
Bagel
Coffee
2 Cokes
Turkey Sandwhich
Fat Free chips (hee)

It is 1:16, I have been awake for 8 hours.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Just cutting out the evening snack and I would be fairly normal.  Just the cokes are excessive.

Just got back from hitting doubles drills with Jeffro, OSU Buckeye and Free Bird.  We played OK, we could have done better.  But we are just cleaning up our games for Districts coming up.

Tomorrow is a league match @ 9:00 A.M.  (Not USTA)  I will get to play wiht my USTA partner so I am pumped.
Good Luck on the Court!!!
