Third Week

It looks like things are pretty uneventful this week. Hurricane 4.5 and JCC Blast is probably the feature attraction, while the Deucebags-Ssshhhwings match may also be interesting.

I took a quick glance at the rosters. A few interesting additions but nothing mind-blowing: The Clambakes have added Anthony Jones. Hurricane 4.5's added Hersch Pise. Jedi Knights added talented old-timer Steve Wedderburn. Mob Squad 4.0 added Edgar Dean, and Copperfield 4.0 added Daniel Kallus, who makes them very dangerous.

  3. Kallus makes them dangerous, or possibly is he a danger to them?

  4. i think copperfield is trying to make a statement this year with the 4.0, 4.5, and 5.0 teams.

  8. Everyone knows that it was Luke, with a little help from his father at the very end.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Unfortunately, Luke had to learn how to play lefthanded due to a nasty lightsaber accident while goofing around with dear old dad.

  12. Who won between Schwinng and D-bags?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Haven't heard who won the team match, but I do know Raymond Martinez beat Pete Taylor last night. I had heard he'd be a force this year with his improved fitness, looks like it may be true.

    ReplyDelete
  14. It's gotta be Jelly 'cause Jam don't shake like that!

  15. Tuan Tran wins a singles match 6-0, 6-0.

    ReplyDelete
  16. nice win tuan, people hard to stay focus and double bagel someone.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Tuan Tran didn't win. It is a made up score. GTAC defaulted the line.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It happens a lot if the captain doesn't know how to enter scores properly. There is a way to enter a default instead of a score but some captains aren't very techie.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Chancellors probably did it on purpose. They might need every game possible for their shitty team just to get into the playoffs.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Did the old guys of the Schwings pull it out?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Last year the HTA used percentage of games won formula to determine wild card spots and they did not count defaults. So if I was the captain I wuld report a 6-0, 6-0 win instead of a default to. Tran is the home team captain so he can report it any way he wants

    ReplyDelete
  22. Tran is suppose to report the score as a default, but he's crooked. Be careful H-Town Hacker is censoring the blog since those two carry each other's jock strap.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Shwings still sends their scores in by Pony Express so we will find out their score soon.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Let's face it. Schwings is terrible. They would not win 4.0.

    ReplyDelete
  25. D-Bags beat Sssswwwings 4-1.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sssswwwings have no solid singles players as of yet and they apparently have trouble getting their guys out to play the key matches. They had to play Ki at singles? Where was Flad?

  26. anyone know the results of canes vs blast, lakeside vs bronies

    ReplyDelete
  27. I believe the Canes and Blast ran out of time with the match tied at 2-2. Adam Berry and Matt Mussenden were in the midst of their line 2 singles match with Berry squeaking out the first set when they ran out of time. Don't quote me...I could be wrong.

  28. If a person gets a new USTA # can they just start over at a lower level?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Several have tried. Not sure any have succeeded for long.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Alastar Le did just that...

    ReplyDelete
  31. alastair is 0-3 in 4.0 summer league. non-factor.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Alastar Le has another USTA #? Is that allowed?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Alastair Le and Phuong Le are the same person (I believe). But, Alastair/Phuong played at his year-end 2009 rating of 4.5 during the following year of 2010 after he switched names so it doesn't look his name switch was used to any advantage.

    ReplyDelete
  34. If he is illegal, Kerig will bust him. Like flies on crap.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Don't be silly. Kerig won't bust him until late in the year. Or maybe playoffs. Maximum benefit. No problem with his strategy. You cheat, you deserve to get burned big time.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Doesn't matter if someone takes advantage of it or not, ratings are based on many years of matches. If Phuong/Alastair has a 4.5 rating which is active (which he does) then I don't think he should be allowed to play under a different # and name just because he didn't originally take advantage of it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOL. Kerig can't/won't do squat. Alastair's got a 2+ year old computer rating under his current name. And he signed up at the same level as his old name. Case closed.

    TTA is gonna laugh at anyone who protests him.

  40. Odion has signed with Copperfield and I believe he also received a sign on bonus too.

    ReplyDelete
  41. It appears Freeman can't recruit without Red. Freeman was the face, but Red was the brains. Freeman...the face... Red...the brains???? What the hell.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Odion will carry Copperfield to its first sectionals. Freeman has no interest in 4.5 this year. He is concentrating on beating all the 4.0 teams again.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Copperfield will take 4.0 and 4.5 this year. Everyone is playing for 2nd. Give it up guys.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Copperfield will win 5.0 too

    ReplyDelete
  45. 5.0 Copperfield is a stacked team. They are as solid as it gets.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sugar Creek "was" the favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sidney Jim will clean Odion's clock.

    ReplyDelete
  48. copperfield has a great team, with the addition of odion. i dont think odion has been playing singles or is playing singles for copperfield. copperfield is always know to have good doubles and singles, but nothing outstanding, for the exception of kudrick. its just crazy how stacked all these 8 teams are.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Copperfield has juniors who can't be beat in singles. On paper they are ahead of everyone in the league.

    1. That's where you'll find juniors play best
