Re: Johnny Groove un-retires from tennis

affirmative old sport

if you fail you can always work in a tennis academy

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

It's hot and humid. Can you deal with that?

He can't even deal with throwing a ball up in the air in a straight line.

Sounds like Florida

But I won't be able to get the job, I am not good enough and also not enough experience Maybe I ought to try to make it work in USA first. Couple more good wins, some more ranking, maybe a position in Bradenton? That'd be the shit.

Singapore is usually 28-30 degrees celsius with humidity at 80%. Florida is less humid, no?

What job were you looking at? Link please?

Honestly, you ought to focus on getting some official coaching credentials at this point. Sounds like it's the more realistic job if the other option is being a professional tennis player...

Re: Johnny Groove un-retires from tennis

I think you should get a shitty job and start chasing some random latina at your local beach, at the same time keeping the wizards of MTF up to date with your relationship just to balance your attention needs.

Sound life advice right there. Take it. It's free.

Today in Florida was roughly that temperature, even 33-34 Celsius here today. Humidity is always at least 70% here, so the temperature doesn't seem too bad.

I was looking at this- http://origintennisnews.blogspot.sg/

I have the credentials, I just don't have the playing career records yet. And besides, they said the minimum I'd have to stay over there would be 2 years, and I was planning to do just 1. Hopefully I can get enough results to get a coaching job in USA, hopefully Bradenton, within the next few months so I don't have to teach history.

Re: Johnny Groove un-retires from tennis

You shouldn't be allowed to be anywhere near a coaching position before you can bagel Leng Jai consistently. Even in your sleep.

If you lived here, and we used a public court, $25/hour.

Re: Johnny Groove un-retires from tennis

I take it you want to join the search for MH370 and thus chose Singapore as your destination. Again, great strategy. Keep Tripwires a few weeks in the sun and you can have of her in the spot of your latina crush while she is showing you the inner workings of the posh district of the country.

Maybe I'm being a little bit too excited here but I'm thrilled to hear about this new plan of yours.

Good luck with that.

Alas, there is a slight problem...I'm not currently living there.
