The woes of my tennis teams are piling up like hits to the website where Elliott Spitzer hired hookers.
Last Saturday, my 3.0 team was crushed 4-1 by the North Parker led by Alf Lismanis. That dropped our record to 2-2 and raised the possibility we will miss the playoffs for the first time since 1999. My partner Mark and I got the only victory. Kudos to Sonny Boy and Jeff Johnson for putting up a heroic fight as last-second additions to the team. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
On the 3.5 level, we were destroyed 5-0 by the superteam captained by Ed Seier. We won so few games that our set scores looked like the starting lineup of a women's basketball team: 6-0, 6-1, 6-2, etc. That leaves us 0-2, but confident that we won't play any team this good the rest of the season.
