Comments

I'm out of town for the weekend so I'm at the mercy of Tennis Link for any information regarding matches yesterday. I will keep my comments to a minimum.

First, one other issue with regard to the "comments" section. I really do wish people would sign their names to comments, but given my anonymity it would be hypocritical of me to require it or even suggest it. I do have the ability to delete comments and have done so when I think they cross way over the line. However, I don't monitor things that closely and occasionally a negative comment will PROVOKE other comments. In those cases I think it's counterproductive to delete the original comment in most cases. Comments such as "Ken Burkhart belongs in 4.0" (not picking on Ken, just an example) are, in my opinion, not necessarily malicious and may just be one person's opinion, so I will often let those be. Incidentally, I do enjoy hearing what other people have to say. I was bored one day and decided to write a preview of the league this year, which is how the blog came into existence. But I'm really enjoying the byplay and opinions in the comments section, which is part of the reason I'm still blogging. As Ken noted, I've tried not to put too many people down but I suppose occasionally I have been guilty of that myself. However, hopefully I've limited it to tennis strokes and not personal attacks.

OK, enough of that. As for the tennis this week, as noted earlier it was not an exciting slate of matches. One match I may not have mentioned in the preview was between Kingwood and the YUTTS. Kingwood brought out a strong lineup, not taking this one lightly. Wisely, I might add. The YUTTS are dangerous. Tor Krosby seems to have regained the form of a decade ago. It's fun to see old warriors like him, Gary Armstrong and Jody Deluca battle it out week after week. Alas, Krosby was the only one to take a line last night, though Rich Ryu gave Omon Dibua all he could handle. Kingwood is back in the driver's seat for a playoff spot.

In 4.0's weakest division Sienna Plantation pretty much clinched things by again beating Pecan Grove. Pecan Grove's #1 singles player Randy Strnadel remained undefeated, but just hasn't gotten enough help from his mates. All of the other 4.0 heavyweights had little trouble.

None of the other "interesting" scores have been posted. I may comment some more later. Keep the (clean) comments coming.

  3. Don't think Allen or Red would be interested in Blogging about Houston League. They both know nothing about 4.0's and are struggling to make it in the 4.5's elite and from the looks of it Allen should stay in the 4.5's looking at his 5.0 results. My guess is the blogger is from the the Hangovers 4.5 team.

  4. That does make sense. Many comments made towards Red have been negative. :He is doing this on purpose so that peoplw won't think it is him. And he does speak to me daily asking what is going on with my team. Very sneaky.

  15. I don't think the writer is Allen or Red, because Allen & I finished a league make-up match at the City Club last at 10:30, and Red was playing next to us, and watch us for the last few minutes of our match. If you look at the most recent posting by HTown Hacker it was last night at 9:55pm. Who-ever is posting anonymous regarding Allen; -all I can say is, Allen & I are 4-0 as partners, and 2 of those wins have been against 5.0 teams.
