Anyone have any ideas? I know you guys aren't here now, but, well, you will be at some point.

They lost.

They should use Matt Franco tomorrow instead of Julio. They should change the lineup, too.

I suggest:

1. Furcal
2. DeRosa
3. C. Jones
4. Sheffield
5. M. Franco
6. A. Jones
7. Lopez
8. Castilla
9. pitcher

That way you have a great deal of speed at the start, and power from 2-8. Long ball chances.

Ooooh.... now I am so nervous :o :o :o...errm.... OK, why not, I guess if both of us have points in, the result is final anyway.

I am fearful... he could have gotten an idea of my distribution before he sent his points because I've already 'played' 2 matches....

According to this week's "look forward" --and I KNOW it's a long shot given her draw--but if Kim does well (which presumably means finals or winning the whole tournie) she'll go to number 5.

Well, according to today's news, the numbers supporting Bush's plan to invade Iraq have dropped. 60% of the people polled said they would like the weapons inspectors to go in first, 60% said not to attack without our allies, and 70% said not without congressional approval. What really shocking--about half of the people said to wait until we are attacked before we make a move!
These numbers make me pretty happy, but probably make Bush very cranky, hence the speech. He'll try to get them up. I hope he fails.

By the way, Kim and Chanda took the first set in a tiebreak and it looks like Momo/Justine will take the second.

Murkofan
10-07-2002, 07:22 PM
The RG final was an excellent match. It really only came down to a few points here and there, and it's a shame Kim lost. Having said that, I don't think it's worth what you would probably have to pay to obtain a copy. You can check www.tennistapes.com to see if they have it.

FMTT will be the best game! :D I'm 100% into this. I'll recruit Mazza to be helpful too. Angele, BBB--don't be lazy, go make players. :p

So it is slower, I thought so. Now WTAworld is perfectly fast and even with my cable modem I wait a while for pages to load here. It's annoying.

Oh well, hopefully some of the people that fled here and stayed will lose interest soon.

Pf @ Bush. I hope Fox doesn't show it. There will be a lot of really pissed off people if that speech makes us miss the most interesting game of the season so far.

There are several Americans, I think, so as it stands, Angelo's chances of making the DC squad next year are slim to none. :rolleyes:

It's rainy here but not raining. Sorry Marly, you have to play for a real county. Why don't you cross the border and play for Canada? I don't have any teammates. Or you and Allan could go play for Mexico. I'm sure they'd pay you nicely for your traitorhood.

Playasport only updates at 1am PST (4am EST). You can't play an event the day after you sign up.

I get so unlucky on that site. Only one training point a day and I always get horrid draws.

With each passing day
You've come so far
Don't throw it away
Keep believing
Dreams are for living
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith hope and glory
Hold to the truth
In your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams
Will never die
Dreams see us through
To forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end
Valleys, mountains
There is a fountain
Washes our tears
All away
Worlds are swaying
Someone is praying
Please let us come
Home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams
Will never die
Dreams see us through
To forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

When we are out there
In the dark
We'll dream about the sun
In the dark
We'll feel the light
Warm our hearts
Everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams
Will never die
Dreams see us through
To forever
As high
As souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and I

Nobody's here so I'll talk to myself and hope somebody answers whenever they get here :p Ok so I have a tiny, erm, dilemma ;)

My friend is having a party this weekend and I wanna go but I have to figure out a way to ask my parents if I can go... I think my parents trust me but:

1) My friend's father owns a couple of houses in town and one of them happens to be un-occupied at the moment so that's where the party is :o

2) A bunch of people are sleeping over and I'm one of those people who was invited to stay the night... I'm not sure my parents would be crazy about me going to party and only coming home the next morning :o

3) I'm going to sound like a total nerd but here goes :o Whenever I go out, it's never to parties and I've never had alcohol before :o And there's going to be alcohol at this party and I could try and lie about that but that wouldn't work because a) I hate lying to my parents and b) my dad is a teacher at school and he finds out everything!

So, how to I ask my parents if I can go? And for me, it's not as simple as just asking them because I've never asked to go to a party before. And if they ask me if there's gonna be alcohol, I have to say yes but if they ask if i'm going to drink, :confused: I haven't even decided myself if I wanna drink or not lol

Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

Ah, I was about to tell you that, Angele. Hopefully there'll be a Lleyki picture (hopes and wills the heavens)

Well, here's the advice I'll give you:
Give your parents reason to trust you. If they ask you if there'll be alcohol, tell the truth. And if you promise not to drink, don't. If you build a trusting relationship with your parents, life will be easier fo you in the future.
Don't risk getting caught in a lie, especially if your dad is likely to be the one to catch you!

And don't feel dorky...I'm older than you and I hardly EVER drink--I only have wine at weddings and such. No casual drinking at all.
So I'm the dorky one. :)
